Twisted AUTHOR Laurie Halse Anderson

Ghtmarish paranoid state of mind He is desperate to find a way out of the mess he's i Once you ve thought long and hard enough about doing something that is colossally stupid you feel like you ve actually done it and then you re never uite sure what your limits are If you ve never read anything by Laurie Halse Anderson before let me tell you that she writes some of the best hard hitting realism Speak took a close look at a rape victim Wintergirls focused on an anorexic girl Twisted is centered around suicideAnderson has a gift for being able to dive into the minds of teens I think a lot of authors miss the mark when they try to write teen voices and their characters end up sounding like they tried way too hardWith Anderson it comes naturally Her characters think like teens have realistic relationships and their behavior accurately represents teenagers Twisted shows the side of Tyler s life that he won t let his friends see his depressed abusive father who is tearing their family apart and how Tyler spends his time thinking up different ways to hurt people I didn t fit I was a different size a different shape I kept trying to sueeze into a body a skin suit that was too small Tyler s narrative was so sympathetic no matter how hard he tried he could never live up to his father s expectations But the portrayal of a serious issue wasn t the only good thing the plot also intrigued me and the writing was addictingI loved the ending it sent a great message about suicide No matter how bad things are what people are saying about you or how you feel about yourself you can take control of the situation and change things for the better When there is the possibility of a brighter future ahead why give up now

As the prime suspect With everyone believing him to be guilty Tyler spirals into a ni This book didn t really do it for me The whole time I was reading it I kept thinking that if I was a teenager I would have had my jaw gaping open at some of the plot twists but since I m now a jaded adult I felt like the events that occurred were a bit emotionally manipulativeMain things that bugged me the fantasy of a dorky guy who works all summer and comes back to school buff and suddenly semi popular The gun The inattentive father and the resolution that occurs with their relationship at the end of the novel I just wasn t buying itBut like I said I m not really the intended audience for this book so I ll shut up now On the flip side many YA books can cross the line and engage both teens and adults I just don t think this is one of them
