Blaze by Laurie Boyle Crompton

Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillains)Blaze by Laurie Boyle Crompton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

didn't like it it was ok liked it (my current rating) really liked it it was amazing  

Typical teenage drama of today. Girl feels invisible, girl takes sexy photo and send to hot boy, hot boy gives invisible girl the time of day, hot boy dumps invisible girl, invisible girl takes justice on hot boy, hot boy takes revenge on invisible girl.

I hear about stories like this all of the time on the news. I can't say that the idea was original, but this was one of the first times I've seen it written in the young adult genre. I think this book went about as expected. I wasn't wowed. But I didn't die of boredom either.

I do think it's good that there's a book out like this, though. It could have the potential to educate young girls about the consequences of 'sexting.' Maybe there won't be as many stories like this in real life anymore.

One can hope.

Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines, drawing comics and feeling invisible. She's desperate for soccer star Mark to notice her. And when her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a hot date in the back of her minivan, Blaze is flying high, but suddenly Mark's feelings seem to have been blasted by a freeze-ray gun, and he dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her "sext" photo, and, overnight, Blaze goes from Super Virgin Girl to Super Slut. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now...

I love comments! So don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Leave your blog/website name and link so I can get back to you. And if you're a new follower, tell me. Note that this is an award-free zone. I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.

Happy reading!
