Review: My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody

My Life Undecided

Jessica Brody

Genre: YA Realistic Fiction

Pages: Hardcover, 320 pages

Publisher: Farrar, Straus, Giroux (BYR)

This is probably one of the funniest gooks I have read in a while. Brooklyn reminds me of a few of my students all rolled into one and maybe that helps me understand her more and laugh harder. I think that we have all had at least one moment in our lives when we wish that someone else would make the decisions for us. My husband and I constantly have this argument when trying to decide where to eat when we go out! Brooklyn, however, has a great idea… start a blog and let others make the decisions for her! Being 15 is rough on its own but when you add fickle best friends, a mysterious new guy (who just happens to show up at the right time) and the mess of a burnt down house complete with community service, I think you might take alternate routes for decision making too.

Jessica Brody has written a book that I think all teen girls will love. Even the broody types because we can all see a little of ourselves somewhere in Brooklyn. I laughed out loud at some parts and my five year old couldn’t stop laughing at me and that is a testament of good writing. I could identify with the character. You will not be disappointed with this great read!
