    After digesting this book for a couple of hours, my opinion of the book is still insert heavy silence here I really am not too sure what to think of the book Was it fabulous Not really Was it horrendous Nope So where does that leave it Smack dab in the middle of what the heck did I just read It had a great base, a wonderful foundation, if it only kept going The premise of the book has been done quite many times before so I looked forward to how the author executed the plot and how she After digesting this book for a couple of hours, my opinion of the book is still insert heavy silence here I really am not too sure what to think of the book Was it fabulous Not really Was it horrendous Nope So where does that leave it Smack dab in the middle of what the heck did I just read It had a great base, a wonderful foundation, if it only kept going The premise of the book has been done quite many times before so I looked forward to how the author executed the plot and how she morphed it to something of her own Only I felt that she headed into the wrong direction Yes, trying to capture the realistic teenage emotion is good however when you characterize someone completely solely on appearance and how popular they are, you will not gain any emotional support from me and hopefully from any other readers.Sage was too focused on the perfect appearance, to be perfect like Mona Some have even called her shallow which I cannot completely disagree Almost every female teen character was shallow in a sense But if the author had delved fully into the relationship of Vern, she might have created a scenario where Sage develops Or into the relationship of her mother creating emotional depth In reality, however, she skimmed both topics leaving me dumbfounded as to why even bring both topics then.Roger is an idiot to put it lightly Not in the sense where I hate his guts, okay maybe I do, butof his traits that made him an idiot He is the all American football playing, horny boy, career goal cop, talking shit with friends, living with his mother forever, type of guy I just could not see what Sage saw in him Wait, I think I do understand His social status but of course Even as the story progresses, Sage does not appear to be phased by histhan kiss attitude, in the aspect of actually trying to stop him Only when he actually tries to really force her does she see the light Dense, thus is Sage or the idiocy to create such a false image of someone Narrow mindedness Stupidity Or na ve You be the judge.Mona was well, nowhere to be seen More of the idea of her, her essence, of what she represents, is played in the novel She, herself, comes in for like 3 lines And she is of course, pretty, nice, and smart all rolled into one She ticks me off only because in the sparing 3 lines, she ends up crying because Sage did not want to go to her house Pathetic I mean, it is okay to not get your way at least once Anyone have a spare backbone Anyway moving on The ending was abrupt Non cohesive, and leaving so many unanswered questions For one thing, whatever happened to Vern I ll just leave it there But I am still dumbfounded to this point about the ending.Overall If the book still sounds interesting, borrow this from the library first

    This book wasitI didn tOh fuck it.This book wasnot good But it wasn t awful.I see the points the author was trying to make but they failedepicly.I hated that the perspective was split into four different mindsets 3 out of 4 has NOTHING TO DO with being Mona The book itself had NOTHING TO DO with being Mona So why the fuck call it To Be Mona Damn I can t.Walmart Walter Martin faggot gay kid No I didn t give him those titles was a random gay character He had a POV every few This book wasitI didn tOh fuck it.This book wasnot good But it wasn t awful.I see the points the author was trying to make but they failedepicly.I hated that the perspective was split into four different mindsets 3 out of 4 has NOTHING TO DO with being Mona The book itself had NOTHING TO DO with being Mona So why the fuck call it To Be Mona Damn I can t.Walmart Walter Martin faggot gay kid No I didn t give him those titles was a random gay character He had a POV every few chapters that had nothing to do with the book All these random ass hypothetical questions and going to therapy because his mom wanted to heal his homosexuality Then Roger was this abusive cunt who Sage liked Vern liked Sage This book Ugh This was my favorite part Consuming a diet of Pop tarts, Twizzlers, and Neco Wafers can alter your sexual orientation and give you bad dreams

    Sage wants to be Mona, she has it all the looks, the friends, the money Sage s mom has pretty much been crazy since her dad left them many years ago Her next door neighbors the Goldburg s have been looking out for her and her mom for about that long Sage wants the jock, Roger, to be the one who loves her even when Vern Goldburg so openly does She just wants a better life, withmoney andhope Told in alternating viewpoints between Sage, Roger, Vern and Vern s friend, Walter this Sage wants to be Mona, she has it all the looks, the friends, the money Sage s mom has pretty much been crazy since her dad left them many years ago Her next door neighbors the Goldburg s have been looking out for her and her mom for about that long Sage wants the jock, Roger, to be the one who loves her even when Vern Goldburg so openly does She just wants a better life, withmoney andhope Told in alternating viewpoints between Sage, Roger, Vern and Vern s friend, Walter this story tells the tale of trying to fit in when maybe being on the outside isn t that bad.This story was alright I enjoyed the random hypothetical questions that are interspersed throughout the novel I think that was the highlight however The characters were vague and forgettable It seemed in the beginning of this novel that Mona was this popular snotty girl that Sage envied and wanted to replace Really Mona seemed like just an ordinary girl, like all the other girls in the school except Sage Sage was really only different because her mom was wacky and they didn t really have any money Sage seemed very full of herself She starts dating Roger and it s evident that he is a real jerk, he s controlling and possessive and never really nice to Sage He is also really stupid I m not sure why their relationship lasted so long because he didn t really have any redeeming qualities I feel like Sage just wanted him so badly that even when it turned out he wasn t a catch she just kept dating him to prove that she wasn t wrong about him The other relationships in this story also seem odd and out of place Maybe people act like this, but I don t feel that they were authentic This book touched on a few good points about mental illness and domestic abuse, but all in all, this book was a dud It was a fast read but not a really good one.First Line Consider yourself a color Favorite Line Consuming a diet of Pop tarts, Twizzlers, and Neco Wafers can alter your sexual orientation and give you bad dreams

    High school Sage is trying everything to fit in wear the right clothes, losing weight, and trying to make herself noticeable in a good way She wants everything to come together, just like it does for popular Mona However, nothing ever works right for Mona One of her major obstacles is her crazy mother who cannot hold down a setting job, pay the bills, or even fill the fridge Mona s only escape is her best friend Vern and his perfect family Only now, Vern wants to bethan just frien High school Sage is trying everything to fit in wear the right clothes, losing weight, and trying to make herself noticeable in a good way She wants everything to come together, just like it does for popular Mona However, nothing ever works right for Mona One of her major obstacles is her crazy mother who cannot hold down a setting job, pay the bills, or even fill the fridge Mona s only escape is her best friend Vern and his perfect family Only now, Vern wants to bethan just friends Vern constantly is bringing up going out on dates, going to the prom together, and even getting married Things only get worse when in an attempt to make Sage jealous, Vern agrees to take the popular and over sexually Cassandra to the prom Dreams to come true for Sage the very popular football player, Roger Willis takes notice of her and ask her out That dream soon becomes a nightmare for Sage, Roger is controlling and abusive He tells her she cannot talk to Vern any Eventually things come together for Sage Vern s parents get help for her mother, Mona is not that perfect as she seems, Sage breaks up with Roger Vern and Sage become best friends again Each of the chapters of the book are told by the books different characters Sage, Vern, Roger, and one character referred as Wal Mart but was at first only referred as to as Walter before thus making me very confused , which makes the book very difficult to get into and to follow The characters are very static Sage is the school outcast that wants to be popular, Vern is the nerdy guy that does not know how hot his nerdiness is so he pines for the girl next door who is Sage it feels like a typical YA book about fitting in I definitely recommend this read for anyone into chic lit because it is not too heavy and it reminds me of a Lifetime movie

    Sometimes it is nice to read a book that is a reminder of what kind of misconceptions teenagers have about life Sage is a normal teenager, who is well liked and beautiful She has great friends, good grades, and a guy who is madly in love with her She doesn t realize any of this, though Instead, she gazes at Mona and wishes she had her life, a life of popularity She looks at Roger, and wishes she could be his girlfriend, that he d notice her She gets her wish She becomes popular and Roger Sometimes it is nice to read a book that is a reminder of what kind of misconceptions teenagers have about life Sage is a normal teenager, who is well liked and beautiful She has great friends, good grades, and a guy who is madly in love with her She doesn t realize any of this, though Instead, she gazes at Mona and wishes she had her life, a life of popularity She looks at Roger, and wishes she could be his girlfriend, that he d notice her She gets her wish She becomes popular and Roger notices her After experiencing what that kind of life is like, Sage realizes that she shouldn t have been so hard on herself Like many teenagers, Sage doesn t appreciate what she does have At the same time, she has to deal with a bipolar mom who keeps her living in near poverty in an affluent community Shameful about what she doesn t have, it is hard for her to see what she does As I read this book, I felt for Sage I remembered gazing with adoration at a boy I thought was cute, not knowing anything about him as a person When she found out that boy was not a good guy, I chuckled a bit because I had a similar experience Her obsession with her weight and her chubby cheeks also hit a chord Many young women feel like they are overweight I look at old pictures of myself, for example, and think Man I wish I looked like that again At the time, I thought I was a whale As Sage got to know the girl she admired but was intimidated by, I thought about all the girls I went to high school with who I was terrified to get to know Many of them are extremely sweet people, a fact I was oblivious to while in high school Thankfully, I didn t have to deal with the poverty and the bipolar mother, but in many ways, Sage s high school experience felt much like my own I d definitely recommend this book to any high school girl who feels self conscious

    9 30 12I really enjoy this book so far It is about a young girl named Mona she is trying to become popular she does everything in her power to be just like Mona the most popular girl in school Her friends consist of her best friend Vern those pretty girls in her school who in my eyes just pretend to be there for her Her mom isn t really there for her her mom is not actually somebody you would be proud to call your mom , but Sage does whatever she can to try be there to support her 9 30 12I really enjoy this book so far It is about a young girl named Mona she is trying to become popular she does everything in her power to be just like Mona the most popular girl in school Her friends consist of her best friend Vern those pretty girls in her school who in my eyes just pretend to be there for her Her mom isn t really there for her her mom is not actually somebody you would be proud to call your mom , but Sage does whatever she can to try be there to support her mother.I could make a text self connection from my book because I have once wanted to be like my best friend Know one has ever found this out but i guess it was jealousy Also ive always been the type to take care of my mother I support her through whatever situation she has to deal with , even though sometimes she makes bad decisions she can always get through it I feel the message of the book is too basically describe the teenage generation now and days , the whole story line i believe would relate to EVERY single one of the teenagers in my highschool
