We need more YA books about neuropsychiatric disorders
Jerk, California - Jonathan Friesen

I'll start out by saying that I can't really control my thoughts, I'm easily distracted and confused, and I'm still going through a lot of major personal stuff, but this book was HARD AS HELL to follow. Long scenes were summed up in a couple of sentences, the main character talked to himself constantly (although this might have been a symptom of his Tourette's), and characters came and went.

 

All in all, not a very enjoyable read, especially since the story took some bizarre turns near the end, but a promising premise and a decent book for teens who also have Tourette's (if not solely for the fact that you'd be hard pressed to find another YA book with a main character who has the affliction, and that he learned to live with himself and not feel like he was damaged).

"I don't like you like that"
The Glass Demon - Helen Grant

I can see how people will find Lin's irritation at Michel's obvious crush for her grating, but there have been times that I've wanted to yell at guys (and one girl) who weren't getting the hint - "I don't want to be your girlfriend! Go away!" so there is some sympathy.

 

Still, he seems like a decent guy...so he might end up being friendzoned. Too soon to tell...

Layaway?!

(snort) There's a patron at my library who puts books on hold, and when she comes to pick them up, says "I have a book on layaway."

 

 

I always have to turn to keep from laughing in her face, because "layaway"?!
