    You know the feeling you get after reading a book you HAD to finish because you re just curious and you keep hoping SOMETHING is going to make you love it and then wishing you hadn t wasted hours of your life on it That s what I m feeling right now I m angry, and just plain frustrated Seriously, how much drama can one person bear It s not enough that Dianna gets beaten by her father, she is also harassed by her coach, she is pregnant, she is the object of every piece of gossip at school AND she realises she s gay Can you give the girl a break I have read some pretty heavy coming of age books that I loved, the difference is the execution was so good I just didn t care about all the imperfections of the story Unbearable Girl just doesn t work Too many imperfections I couldn t get past despite some potential, good writing and sweet characters.For one thing, the pregnancy is absolutely unnecessary Nothing is made of it, and in the end we don t even know what she decides to do She s what 16 max for christ s sake and it doesn t seem like a big decision for her Really, I was too busy cringing or mustering things like what the fuck , or no this did not just happen to feel sorry for the characters.Secondly, to all the hopeless romance lovers out there you can skip it too There is hardly anything satisfactory in terms of romance in this book The story is excruciatingly slow, and then just like that, they are a couple actual quote from the book No explosive declarations, not even a real kiss Hardly any build up No sexual tension I mean I know they are teenagers, but when you re 16 or 17 or 18, your hormones are RAGING I can t stand reading books where characters seem almost asexual Physical intimacy is essential to a love story At some point I thought well this book just must target a much younger audience but then I thought the girl gets PREGNANT, how young can the audience be ParadoxLast but certainly not least, I am so tired of the stereotypically American settings in these books I may be naive, I am after all from a country far far away called France where bullying is not even a thing and high school is actually a great time for everyone But these stories they depict such a horrible picture of the US, I can t stand to read them It s hard for me to relate, and it s actually hard for me not to see these things as utterly unbelievable Everything is so black and white, I felt like I was reading a bad episode of Glee The cheerleaders vs the nerds, the smearing, the gossip and insults in the halls, the dumb jock, the heartless bitch, etc I just need some colors in my stories.

    I couldn t put this book down Unbearable Girl by Julie Camper is than a coming of age story dealing with current issues it s an emotional roller coaster that makes you really evaluate your life and the people you influence daily.Technology, bullying, abuse, pregnancy and same sex relationships are all incorporated into this moving book I felt a personal connection with the main character on several levels I ve spent 29 years of my life trying to work through who my Father thought I should be and who I am I grew up at Minister s daughter Church every time the doors were open, often my Father in the pulpit preaching on me or my Mother and how we should be living our lives I was not grounded like my friendsmy punishment was to attend church X amount of days every week when I was in trouble The final strawmy parents found out I was still am bisexual at age 20 My Mother looked at me with tear filled eyes and said I wish you had been pregnant instead of this I left home soon after and spent the rest of my 20 s finding who I was without them.Everyone has their own story and I m sure there are people who will read this and disagree with what I ve said but I can honestly tell you on a PERSONAL level this book hit home I not only recommend Unbearable Girl to teens and young adultsI recommend it to parents, teachers and anyone struggling to find their own ground.5 stars and 2 thumbs way up

    Great read The emotions were just flying off the page especially Dianna sGrowing up in a high control and abusive household thinking that everything that happens there is normal and just Dianna s pompous, almighty dad beats her while her mum simply chooses to turn a blind eye Things changed when rumors started to spread and the head cheerleader became a target of the popular kids brand of humor Enter Laurie, school nerd and favourite target for ridicule and bullying Along with her dads, Laurie offers to help Dianna and provide her the comfort, love and security that a family should to help her heal.This story deals with bullying not just from teens but also from adults who should know better It also shows how important support is for someone who is or has been in an abusive relationship familial or otherwise.

    Dianna Faraday has to handle that any normal high school girl her age She has to live up to her father s expectations or suffer the consequences Those consequences are unbearable though and involve her father s belt at an intensity level that no one should ever endure Then Laurie Burns comes into Dianna s life in way that was never expected Laurie and her family show Dianna what the true meaning of family and love really mean.Good story that was intense and emotional Unfortunately this very thing is happening out there to some of the young people in our world I couldn t put the book down.

    Skip to bottom for the TL DR people.The Good 1 Loveable lead characters and good supporting character.Dianna has charm and underneath her tough girl exterior is actually very meek from her harsh upbringing She has decent development over the course of the story Ruby and Amy are acceptable support characters with quirky and mostly believable personalities Laurie is an all around enjoyable character who is exceptionally caring which drew me into liking her The rest of the cast were fairly limited in depth but they served their purpose While they aren t deep they are generally diverse.2 The story while a bit far fetched is very captivating.It s a simple story really Girl has problems Confides in others and falls in love with one of those people.3 view spoiler Dianna doesn t get an abortion This is coming from a misanthropist so I m not exactly keen on people, but it s heart warming to see that the fictional girl doesn t snuff the baby for her own mistake hide spoiler

    Unbearable girl was truly brilliant work Emotionally charged from the very start, it will plunge you right into a masterfully spun Story that weaves you through every twist and turn right alongside the young heroine, Dianna while keeping your emotions and curiosity at such a high peak that you just can t stop turning the pages I found Dianna to be inspiring, multi faceted and believable Trying to keep a strong exterior while facing so many obstacles laced with such deep inner turmoil makes emotionally gripping characters that leave you wanting The author has a style of writing that creates instant identification with the heroine, Dianna, I mean haven t we all faced some or at least one of these challenges or known someone who has She covers some controversial topics such as abuse, teen pregnancy and same sex relationships but, does it in such a heart wrenching way because you can so easily feel what this character is feeling It was truly a moving read for me and I did read it all in one sitting, it just draws you in so completely I think a sequel would really be something to think about I think it would be awesome to see the strength the character could go on to develop as she continues her journey It could deeper explore her relationships and maybe her relationship with her mom even I know a lot of us have had mom issues and that would be another facet worth exploration Anyway, this was certainly a heartwarming and emotionally gripping read I think the author knows this genre and will definitely be a force to reckon with Sure to be a hit not only among young adults but, old adults as well TWO Thumbs up Keep them coming

    I m an avid reader If I can t find anything nearby to read, even, say, during breakfast, I ll read the back of cereal boxes And being a bookworm and proud of it I like to consider myself a pretty good gauge of a good writer Julie Camper is, unequivocally, a good writer And this novel, Unbearable Girl an amazing journey into self discovery and self acceptance.Dianna, the heroine, is haunting At the beginning she is a mess, abused both physically and mentally, pushing herself too hard in order to please, a single step away from hitting a metaphorical wall which could crumble her completely From there her bravery, strength of spirit and ultimately, her realization that love comes in many forms and sometimes from unexpected, but no less marvelous, places.This is a story of a girl s journey from child to adult, from unloved to confident, from broken to strong Each chapter captivating than the last, this is one of those books you just can t put down until you ve found yourself at the end in breathless amazement at the emotional journey you just traveled along with Dianna.And excellent book, I can t recommend it enough to do it justice

    I never thought a book could manage to be filled with angst and at the same time super sweet This one is though It is a book about appearances, about high school and parents and pressure and bullying and I think everyone would get something out of reading this one whether one s the Queen Bee Alfa Male or one from the bullied Nerd Herd it can open your eyes to that maybe, just maybe what you see is not what you get.Also, although I would think this one one be targeted mostly at teens, I think us oldies get a lot out of reading it too high school is far behind, but it is good to be reminded of what a hell it can be, and importantly Unbearable Girl gives excellent examples of how parents should vs _absolutely should not_ handle the privilege of being parents.

    Unbearable Girl is an enduring story that goes beyond teenager angst and into abuse, same sex relationships and teen pregnancy I found Dianne to be an exceptionally strong heroine against harsh odds How she was able to maintain a perfect exterior while enduring so much pain was both moving and inspirational With her friendship to Laurie, who is in every way her opposite at first, she is able to cope and break free of the unfair oppression in her life and experience the true meaning of what it is to be loved and have a family.This is a book that will keep you emotionally hooked from beginning to end, and it is one to enjoy reading again in the future.
