lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The Love Song of Jonny Valentine: A Novel - Teddy Wayne This book is obviously based on Justin Bieber, and after I got used to the voice of the eleven year old pop star I really enjoyed this. It reminded me a bit of Room, with the voice of the kid changing subtly as the character grew. That in itself made the book worth reading. I felt sorry for the protagonist, and gained an unexpected sympathy for Justin Bieber and all the teen pop stars who came before him.
