    1. Obsession by Australian Julia Lawrinson catches your eye and the blurb certainly was an interesting plot.But the main character Charlie is annoying and not a very likeable character. The story isn't actually very interesting. It only centres around a girl Charliefatherless, miserable, hates life. I hate the motherd Charlie certainly conveyed her feelings about her mother well. That was the only time I went "Go Girl!". And this obsession thing she has with Kate takes some time before Charlie's fe [...]


    2. It's an Australian book, set in Perth, and it reads a bit like she was trying for ultra-realism, but succeeded only in creating a feeling of artifice and an angstful Mary Sue character. No consequences for the wrongs of anyone other than the main character, and the consequences for the main character were far out of line with her actions. I mean, there was one incident, but apart from that, I don't see how what she did was so OMG INSANE. Heh - perhaps that says more about my own sanity than anyt [...]



    3. I'll always have a soft spot for this book. When I was a confused teenager, unsure about my sexuality and couldn't understand why I wasn't attracted to boys like every other girl in my grade it made things so much clearer for me. It was the first book I read with a queer protagonist. Although Charlottea behavior was a little creepy, it's quite realistic to a teen having her first major crush and being so inundated with feelings that confuse the crap out of her.
