  1. Here s a book to read if you want to be seriously pissed off But no, I shouldn t say that, because Sisters in Sanity is actually an excellent read and I m wanting to sell it to you So, instead I should say this is a book to read if you like stories that leave a lasting impression Or if you want to be introduced to an array of memorable characters Or if you re sick of books with whiny heroines that base every thought and action around their probably supernatural boyfriends And if you would like t [...]

  2. I knew of Gayle Forman from her book If I Stay, which I wrote a gushing review of a few months back A few of us decided to read this lesser known work of hers together this week I was excited to read the book because of the author and because I was reading it with friends but not so excited about the subject matter I assumed that this was rather well worn territory, what with Girl Interrupted and all Also, I wasn t in the mood for a depressing book Sisters in Sanity surprised me in a good way, a [...]

  3. This book literally enraged me.I understand that being a parent can be difficult I understand children can get out of control or need special help and sometimes tough love But surely there is a better way to deal with a gay girl or a girl who has put on extra 30 pounds than to warehouse her at a boot camp whose treatments include days long isolation and humiliation therapy performed by individuals with no education or training Brit gets admitted to the same boot camp by her father for dyeing her [...]

  4. Sisters in Sanity is one of those occasional books that just causes a clusterf ck of emotions in me that I can t justify giving it anything less than 5 stars I just can t There s nothing that destroys my defenses than a kid that s unjustly treated for the capital offense of simply being a teenager Gayle Forman once again pulled at my heartstrings with this raw, powerful story filled with characters that felt nothing less than real to me Perfectly done In this book, sixteen year old Brit is cart [...]

  6. In een opwelling besloot ik om in dit boek te beginnen Dit boek was ik een tijdje terug tegen gekomen op kobo plus en bovendien is het een standalone Aangezien ik hoooop met kerst nog wat leuke boeken te krijgen, wilde ik een boek oppakken wat ik mogelijk best snel uit zou kunnen lezen en dat is gelukt Brit wordt naar de red rock academy gestuurd Ze wordt gezien als een heftige puber die zich niet aan de regels houdt en daar zullen ze op de academy wel even korte metten mee maken Eens zien of da [...]

  7. Having read two Gayle Forman titles now I can attest to them being a very quick read Whether this is attributed to being awesome or being shorter than some YA novels or being extremely well paced or a combination of the three, I don t know Having loved If I Stay so much I was a little scared to read Sisters in Sanity, how could it compare I shouldn t have worried Forman has again demonstrated her wonderful skills in characterisation, crafting a group of girls that are as different as night and d [...]

  8. image error We d like to think that craziness and sanity are on opposite ends of an ocean, but really they re like neighboring islands Sisters in Sanity gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling, like drinking mocha cappuccino in a fine afternoon Or the feeling I get when I brushed past a secondhand bookstore Or listening to the musical rendition of One Direction s One way or another while cruising around the music aisle in a music store LOLOne way or another I m gonna win ya I m gonna get ya, get ya, get [...]

  9. Geen spoilers 3.5Dit boek was prachtig, desondanks de harde wereld van Red Rock waar de meiden zich in bevinden, nemen ze het voor elkaar op Ze geven elkaar rugdekking.Ik heb er ontzettend van genoten Gayle Forman is n van mijn favoriete schrijfsters geworden Ze kan personages zo levensecht voorstellen en ze kan ieder onderwerp aan, zelf gevoelige kwesties als Red Rock Ik ben er zeker van dat dit niet het laatste verhaal is dat ik van haar zal lezen.

  10. The fact I didn t like this book was a surprise I had expected it to deserve four or five stars, maybe three at the least I got it from the library because so many different people loved it But nope, I didn t Sorry, everyone.I really have a hard time with books that portray all the adults as one dimensional bad guys You know, the ones where the teenagers barely have teen angst and they re just rising heroes This was one of those books The protagonist was just too indignant, the grown ups so weak [...]

  11. Deze had ik al een tijdje tussen mijn ebooks staan om te lezen met kobo plus Steeds twijfelde ik of het wel wat zou zijn Ik ben blij dat ik het eindelijk gelezen heb Het is best heftig wat die meiden door moeten maken en ik kan alleen maar hopen dat het in het echt niet zo heftig is Dit was echt zo n verhaal waarin ik steeds verder wilde lezen Ik wilde weten hoe het met ze ging Door de vrij korte hoofdstukken was het ook makkelijk om tussendoor steeds wat te lezen.

  12. Words can t describe how much I absolutely LOVED this book I m actually disappointed that I didn t read this book earlier because this is by far my favorite Gayle Foreman book.I just love reading books about girl empowerment, stories about rebels fighting against the wrong doers, fighting for justice and all that stuffs and esp if they are girls I missed reading these kind of books I used to be a sucker for them when I first started reading books It strangely felt nostalgic It s like I was sudde [...]

  13. 3.5 5 Sisters in Sanity es la primera novela de Gayle Forman Su escritura es entretenida y como siempre nos muestra sentimientos En este relato resalta algo m s peculiar y real Note que al ser su primera novela hay una diferencia marcada en el personaje principal, el cual encuentro incompleto, pero admito que me entretuve como asi te ofrece un mensaje al final.En el mismo hay dosis de romance, una familia con problemas y tal vez una taza de crecimiento de car cter individual Pero es la amistad l [...]

  21. 4.5 stars WARNING This book generally contains and depicts scenes which tug heartstrings and well your eyes so much that it typically itches and you just can t stop staring at the ceiling, contemplating about the memorable characters that have to say goodbye upon ending the book, the massive emotions that sail along the plot lines, and the incredible journey you have shared with your bed whilst reading the whole thing I am truthfully suffering from a bruised forehead It s getting awfully yellow [...]

  23. If you ve read If I Stay or Just One Day, believe me, you ll have hard time accepting that Sisters in Sanity is also crafted by Gayle Forman I didn t even realize it s hers until I read this I stared out the window in between sneaking glances at Jed mainly at the side of his neck I had such an urge to lick it, imagining the taste, salty with dried sweat Forman and her sweat fetish The way she sees boys sweat is like me looking at a mint flavored candy cane I just can t wait to lick it Ugh Plus a [...]
