HANDCUFFS BETHANY GRIFFIN PDF

After year-old Parker Prescott is caught by her parents in a pair of handcuffs with the hottest boy at school, she is grounded indefinitely. She also has to contend with a hateful classmate blogging lies about her, the question of whether or not she will lose her virginity to badboy Hottie and what will happen if she does. But the result is an interminable list of repetitive thoughts that often slow the action to a standstill. The sluggish climax and too-neat ending will cause patient readers who hung in for all plus pages to feel that they received little reward for Herculean effort. Overwritten and under-plotted.

An emotionally engaging closer that fumbles in its final moments. Korean-American Lara Jean is finally settled into a nice, complication-free relationship with her white boyfriend, Peter. The whirlwind of a wedding, college visits, prom, and the last few months of senior year provides an excellent backdrop for this final book about Lara Jean. The characters ping from event to event with emotions always at the forefront.

Han further develops her cast, pushing them to new maturity and leaving few stones unturned. This knowing subversion is frustratingly absent from the novel's denouement. Many teen novels touch on similar themes, but few do it so memorably.

Two struggling teens develop an unlikely relationship in a moving exploration of grief, suicide and young love. Violet, a writer and member of the popular crowd, has withdrawn from her friends and from school activities since her sister died in a car accident nine months earlier. Finch, known to his classmates as "Theodore Freak," is famously impulsive and eccentric. Following their meeting in the school bell tower, Finch makes it his mission to re-engage Violet with the world, partially through a school project that sends them to offbeat Indiana landmarks and partially through simple persistence.

Violet and Finch live, fortunately for all involved, in the sort of romantic universe where his throwing rocks at her window in the middle of the night comes off more charming than stalker-esque. The teens alternate narration chapter by chapter, each in a unique and well-realized voice.

Finch's self-destructive streak and suicidal impulses are never far from the surface, and the chapters he narrates are interspersed with facts about suicide methods and quotations from Virginia Woolf and poet Cesare Pavese.

When the story inevitably turns tragic, a cast of carefully drawn side characters brings to life both the pain of loss and the possibility of moving forward, though some notes of hope are more believable than others.
