Meet Kate Malone-straight-A science and math geek, minister's daughter, ace long-distance runner, new girlfriend (to Mitchell "Early Decision Harvard" Pangborn III), unwilling family caretaker, and emotional avoidance champion. Kate manages her life by organizing it as logically as the periodic table. She can handle it all-or so she thinks. Then, things change as suddenly as a string of chemical reactions; first, the Malones' neighbors get burned out of their own home and move in. Kate has to share her room with her nemesis, Teri Litch, and Teri's little brother. The days are ticking down and she's still waiting to hear from the only college she applied to: MIT. Kate feels that her life is spinning out of her control-and then, something happens that truly blows it all apart. Set in the same community as the remarkable Speak, Catalyst is a novel that will change the way you look at the world.

2.0 Review: Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson
Oh my god ... This book! It took me about four attempts to finish the thing. I just could not get a handle on it. Every time I set about to read the damn thing I just felt my eyelids sliding ever so slowly closed until I was fast asleep, drool and all. And I don't even read before bed, we're talking...

Ok so I was a bit disappointed in this book. The synopsis said that it would change the way I look at the world but that didn't happen. I feel a little heartless saying that I didn't like any of the characters even the main character but it's true. I didn't connect with them at all and I got easily ...

Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my heroines. Ah, the goodness of her...This one didn't hurt as much as Wintergirls and Speak, thank God.

Già colpita da Speak e Wintergirls, non sono rimasta affatto delusa da questo romanzo, e vi posso assicurare che le mie aspettative erano alte.Le emozioni difettos...
