    I had difficulty writing a review of this story, a reread, because for me High School is like a movie I saw once. If I could I'd not leave any rating, just "Read" but I understand this is worse than leaving two stars. This is just a reread of something from 2015.Telling the story of coming out in High School, I found this book to need editing because of grammatical errors and the use of repetitious actions, thoughts and conversations - typically in just a sentence. Such a sprawling work, attempting to describe coming out in Kentucky as a senior in High School (In I guess the late 90's), this story contained some truly mentally ill fellow students and a bitch mother (new shelf?) who really repelled me. The thoughts of the main character were so simply stated they had me thinking she was younger than 17. For me it was a "just ok" read.There should be a trigger warning, as I understand them, that this story includes a sexual assault and past rape.

    I was looking for a good LGBT coming-of-age story and decided to go for this one as the reviews were pretty OK. However, the writing is very matter-of-fact, repetitive, unnecessarily descriptive but lacking in details that matter, and it needed a lot of editing, in my opinion. There were a lot of spelling and grammatical errors, switching up tenses and even character names, and a lot of dated references and cliches. I don't really like it that much, but I finished it... although I have to say that there wasn't a lot of believable plot lines and the characters were not fully developed and came across as stereotypes with very little depth and believability. There were a lot of problematic statements and themes, too.The dialogue wasn't very natural, was kind of stilted, and everyone kind of sounded the same. The dialogue often felt like a cross between Marcia Brady and a PSA against the evils of high school. It felt like it was written by someone who was removed or detached from the actual environment she's trying to portray, and it read like an outsider trying but failing to assimilate into a certain crowd.I appreciate what the author is trying to do and how she created a story to fill the hole of an under represented group, but I think it was way off the mark and needed a lot of fleshing out. There were certain characters that I liked and wanted to have seen more of, or developed, but I thought that it really needed a lot of work.

    This is a cute teen f/f romance. I really enjoyed the two main characters, which kept me reading through the crazy amount of typos. This story could of used an editor.

    Editing badly needed. Both in regard to simple things like spelling, but also plot/character development and style.It didn't start out so bad but by the end I started skipping stuff because I had to cringe so much. The story itslef has potential and I did want to see how it ends, but yeah, if you're looking for well-written YA, skip this.

    This book was way too "teen". To me, the best coming out stories are the ones that can touch adults as well as teenagers. This book doesn't, it's obviously written from a teen POV, for teen people, with overdramatic teen drama. I'm rating it 3 and not 2 because despite the following very weak aspects of the story, there were things I enjoyed as well. Specifically, I found the character of P.J. to be really interesting and charming. The chemistry is not too bad either, and that's essential in a romance story. Some moments are sweet, as well. Jamie's naivete is sometimes endearing. But "Suddenly" is a jumble of typos and grammar errors which are hard to get past. The story is incredibly long and repetitive, therefore in dire need of editing. Unfortunately that wouldn't have been enough to make it a really good story. The writing is just really amateur, and I felt like I was reading a (not so good) fanfiction. Because of the plot as well: the storyline of a rich popular girl falling for the bad girl is overused, as well as the excuse of them studying together to get them closer. There are a lot of uninteresting details about characters that are not relevant to the story, which made the story incredibly boring at times. The whole digital crisis was too much as well and seemed to drag. I had to skip a few chapters because I was getting tired of the repetitive dialogues between Jamie and her parents.In general, the story is not that predictable, but is full of clichés that bothered me. The American setting annoyed me as well. Being from France, I just can't really relate to this whole high school experience which is supposed to be a nightmare in the US. And I'm tired of having to read about cheerleaders and jocks and nerds and bullying, I don't doubt that those things really exist, but I'm sure there are coming out stories that are a lot less dramatic with a lot more open minded people, and with societal issues that are less black and white.Oh and... a few times Jamie talks about how P. J. smells like McDonald's French fries during intimate moments.....NOT SEXY, at all!!

    One of the best books of the year. Sensitive portrayal of high school love. They just happen to both be girls. This new love does not sit well with some at the school and at home. Their love and commitment is severely tested by an intolerant community. Be shocked to discover who comes to their defense. Can a new and unusual love survive high school? Read a find out. This is one of the best coming of age books ever.

    Love love loveI just adored this book. I missed out on a nights sleep to read this book in its entirety. I loved the main characters and the ones you're meant to dislike certainly get an emotional reaction from you. I'm definitely going looking for more work by this author.

    Not a typical genre that I read, but because of the topic being about high school, teens that are gay, figured it was something worthy to read and would recommend anyone to read this book.

    Calificación real:2.5Estaba chusmeando libros con tematica LGTB y me tope con este. La descripción y la portada me llamaron la atención y termine leyendo.No lo recomiendo para nada. Le puse 2.5 estrellas porque la "base" de la historia es interesante pero al libro le falta mucha edición tanto en la trama como en la redacción. Me canse de ver faltas de ortografía y de semantica y eso que yo no hablo en ingles ni lo entiendo al 100%.Me resulta muy raro que una editorial se haya jugado tanto como para sacar a la venta un libro que claramente estaba a la mitad del camino de estar apto para publicar.Si lo que buscan es un libro con una buena historia y bien escrito la respuesta es vayan a buscarlo a otro lado porque aca no lo van a encontrar.La peor parte tiene que ser cuando el libro parecia redactado por una fan de Twilight. Creo que la escritora le puso mas enfasis a describir los personajes de Twilight que a su propio libro.Y el final! El final me parecio lo mas hipócrita que haya leido en mi vida. Es mas,creo que hasta en los fanfictions de Faberry hay mejores y mas realistas finales que el de este libro.(view spoiler)[ no podes inventarte un novio imaginario para tapar la relación que tenes con la chica que amas solo para complacer a tu mama! Y si a la madre se le ocurria ir a visitar a Jamie a WKU y la veia con P.J que iban a inventar? El final es el peor ejemplo a seguir que lei en mi vida. Jamie tendria que haberle dicho a la madre la verdad y despues irse a la universidad quizas sin madre pero siendo 100% honesta con ella misma y con la persona que ama.(hide spoiler)]Para resumir el libro esta mal escrito,se torna aburrido y repetitivo y el final deja mucho que desear en la parte de aceptación de lo que uno es.

    I'm not sure if the opening detracts from the total rating, or if the last half of the book raises it. Either way - this book is a bit of a jumble that would be much better with a little more editorial polish.The opening of the book is, as I've been known to say, weak tea. The narrative seems bland and not compelling. Quite frankly, the first few chapters read how one would expect a stereotypical cheerleader to write. The story begins to become more interesting with the dynamics of the protagonist's interactions within the society and observations on the sociology around her. As the book reaches the final catalyst for climax, it becomes a much more interesting read, if only for the aspects about a digital culture called into question in the last third of the book.I will say that the book is not quite predictable, and definitely does not follow typical tropes. However, it also really suffers from typos - the worst example being when, at P.J.'s birthday party, P.J.'s sister's name mysteriously changes for about a page and a half. Other typos, such as missing letters or words are jarring in the story, as it takes a moment to try to figure out the flow of the sentence and sink back into the story.Overall, I would give it two stars were it not for a compelling and realistic theme in the latter chapters of the book, plus the interplay between the protagonist and the less-than-empathetic head cheerleader.

    Until reading “Suddenly” I had no real interest in reading YA fiction, but M.e. Tudor’s writing changed my mind. I became thoroughly involved in this story of two teenagers (Jamie and P.J.) just coming into their own as young women and exploring their sexuality. Both girls had some experience with boys, but it left them unfulfilled and even traumatized. Tudor’s writing draws you into their budding friendship as both Jamie and P.J. question and tentatively explore their feelings. Both families play a major role in this book and the characters are very well developed, something I find very important in any writing. I hate shallow characters or ones you can’t connect with and I'm pleased to say that this book has neither. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all age levels.

    As others have already said, this book needs major editing. There is just too much repetitive words, typos and using 'you're' instead of 'your' and vice versa just tops it. The narration and story construction at several parts of the books looks like it was written by average teenager. I don't know about the other books of the author but I believe taking writing lessons would be only beneficial.-SPOILER-Overally I enjoyed most of the story although there were several things that bugged me. I have had hard time believing there could be someone as overprotective as Jamie's mother or that Jamie, who is a teenager, would forgive her mother so soon after the incident.-SPOILER-

    Not bad.This book was pretty good. There were definitely parts that kept me turning the pages. The main thing that bothered me were all the typos I found! The ending was a little cheesy/too good to be true, but it was a happily ever after type ending. I liked the characters and the plot. I can relate to Jamie's controlling mother and their awkward relationship. I'd probably read it again later on.

    While terribly edited, or not edited at all, this is an absorbing tale about two high school girls who find love. Despite the distracting grammatical errors, you became invested in the characters and want them to be together. This author's strength is definitely in painting those characters and weaving plot points around them.

    "...why do things that are good have to be so complicated"Feels too much of a cliche and stereotypes. The dialogues sometimes feels forced and unnatural. The sub-characters felt bland and there's alsmost no character development with the majority. Some scenes were cute but it was overpowered by those too-cheesy ones.

    If it wasn't for the typos and little flaws in the construction of the story (repetitiveness, mostly), I would have given it 5 stars. It's a really sweet story. Very believable. You should read it.
