Book Review: My Not So Still Life by Liz Gallagher
This is basically a story of how Vanessa learns that growing up to fast may not always be the best thing, and just being who you are is sometimes the best feeling you can have.
I can't say that I got to much out of this story. I wasn't really interested in the characters, or what was going on with them. If I'm going to love a story I have to be able to love the characters as well, and not just the story. If that doesn't happen then the story better be full of awesomeness. At times I thought Vanessa was kind of rude (especially to her friends). I mean your going to ignore or put down friends you have had for ever after just meeting these people who you claim are awesome and understand you better. I don't know I just felt bad for her friends I guess.
The one thing that I did enjoy was the artistic part of the book. I love reading about art, but that's as far as it goes. I suck at art, but occasionally I'll try drawing or something. After reading books that contain art or the characters that do art I'm like I want to draw. I want to be able to show my creative side. (That never happens)
I know this is really short, and not to helpful. Sometimes you get that one book that just doesn't work. It's not to say it won't work for you though. :)
