45 Stars When Tyler commits a foul deed he is served with a summer of probation and community service With all the hard labor he is served with a summer of probation and community service With all the hard labor his community service his body starts bulking up which catches the eye service With all the hard labor his community service his body starts bulking up which catches the eye a popular girl named Bethany Bethany invites Tyler to a party When Tyler shows up Bethany is drunk and takes Tyler up to a oom Tyler ealizes Bethany is drunk and tells her he doesnt want to do anything which makes Bethany mad When naked pictures of Bethany start to show up on the internet the blame is automatically pointed at Tyler I enjoy anything Laurie Halse Anderso The I think about Twisted the I think it is an effective and unusual contribution to any YA collection Halse Anderson accomplishes two emarkable feats in this book First she gets the teenage male voice and preoccupations perfect Tyler s hard ons are just as much a part of his daily life as his social anxieties crushes and homework And secondly she manages to address the deep level importance of family life however dysfunctional to adolescents The plot seems at first to offer only a predictable scenario over the summer ugly duckling dweeb transforms into possibly cool and sexy swan But as Tyler s promising proto The House That Had Enough relationship with super popular Bethany gets twisted by one late night party and a heap of false accusations it becomes impossible to ignore the pressure from Tyler s asshole dad and eually impossible for Tyler to ignore doing something about himSome elements theeconciliation between Tyler and his father for example are a bit predictable but all in all this is a thought provoking worthwhile ead that guys and gals alike will enjoy A former geek Tyler Miller got himself in trouble because of a prank The Foul Deed he pulled at the end of his junior yea. When Bethany Milbury is the victim in a teenage sex scandal 17 year old Tyler is naile. Arted to heavy A story is only as strong as its characters and Anderson nails it in that department Did the story wrap up to give as its characters and Anderson nails it in that department Did the story wrap up to give that good hope for the future feeling that defines young adults Absolutely and I liked that it didn t do it with a bowSo I liked the story just not all the superfluous material there to make it edgy For that I m downgrading a solid 4 ead to a 3 maybe even 35 It s one of those cases where if I like a book if it s a cases where if I like a book if it s a book and if I would ecommend it don t match up This is the second book I ve READ BY LAURIE HALSE ANDERSON AND by Laurie Halse Anderson and was impressed yet again Her writing is very personal and gets ight inside the protagonist s mind in a way that pulls the Pimpinella Meerprinzessin 1: Ankunft im Muschelschloss (German Edition) reader into the centre of her stories Twisted is about a teenage boy called Tyler who finds himself in the high school limelight after pulling a stunt that lands him with 6 months probation and hard labour which thenesults in him gaining a super hot body and a bad in a good way Das kurze Leben der Sophie Scholl reputation Suddenly his impossible crush on Bethany doesn t seem uite so impossible and everything looks like it s going Tyler s way for once that is until he is accused of a serious crime that he didn t commit Then his whole world turns upside down and almost no one is on his side including his fatherI think Anderson has done an amazing job with Twisted I was never bored and I sympathised with all the protagonist s emotions and turmoil I still didn t enjoy it uite as much as I did Speak and I think that s simply because I can never uiteelate to male point of views as well as female But I want it understood that Anderson did a great job as a female writer creating a male voice that was Défendre Jacob realistic and notomanticised I am definitely going to Darfur's Sorrow: A History of Destruction and Genocide read from Laurie Halse Anderson. Ightmarish paranoid state of mind He is desperate to find a way out of the mess he's
