My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody

Release Date: June 2011
Source: Purchased


Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I’m sorry, I’m feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment.

Here’s the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I’m fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can’t remember the last good decision I made. I can remember plenty of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that accidentally burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure.

But see, that’s why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That’s right. I gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else decide which book I read for English. And whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: chew the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated!

Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can’t choose or have chosen for you—like who you fall in love with. And now everything’s more screwed up than ever.

But don’t take my word for it. Read the book and decide for yourself. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream in frustration. Or maybe that’s just me. After all, it’s my life.

As with the Karma Club and 52 Reasons to Hate my Father I loved this. I really liked the idea behind the story - that she wanted to use the blog as a way of making descision – since her own were so bad!

Brooklyn is one of those characters you just know is going to get into trouble – lets just say trouble has pretty much followed her all her life! - so I was very intrigued to see how she would cope with the blog and them making choices for her. I wasn’t convinced she would do what they said!

As with previous books by Jessica Brody this is such good fun. It’s funny, sweet and again I loved the romance element of the book. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

This sounds like an awesome read- and I remember I have 52 Reasons to Hate My Father on my TBR list- so I can't wait to read this too!

Great review!
