Book Review: My Life Undecided

My Life UndecidedMy Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Well the concept for this book is cute... a teen has poor judgment so she decides to let her blog readers make all her decisions for her but in the end learns she can't avoid her problems and, therefore her consequences, that way. There are the two boys... one she would choose, one she should. There's the awful best friend who sets a bad influence, and there's the older lady who teaches her the lesson she needs to learn.
I found the language (lots of swears) obnoxious... the main character was brassy and annoying... no class. Everything that annoys me about some teen girls today. I'm not saying we have to be high brow ladies, but a little class would be nice. So, that bothered me because younger girls would probably read this and it's not a voice I'd want my daughters imitating.
Not a bad book. It's clean, though there is teen drinking in it and the girl never seems to learn her lesson about it. I don't mind teen drinking being brought up as long as the author is trying to teach their readers the dangers and pitfalls of it... otherwise it just seems to be telling kids it's okay. Not a total waste of time, I suppose, but I will not read this book again and I would not want to own it.
