My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody

Synopsis from book:
Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I’m sorry, I’m feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment.

Here’s the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I’m fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can’t remember the last good decision I made. I can remember plenty of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that accidentally burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure.

But see, that’s why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That’s right. I’m gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else be the one to decide which book I read for English. Or whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich Maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: Chew the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated!

Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can’t choose or have chosen for you—like who you fall in love with. And now everything’s more screwed up than ever.

But don’t take my word for it, read the book and decide for yourself. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream in frustration. Or maybe that’s just me. After all, it’s my life.


Review by: Lexi Boo

I like the book a lot and I think a lot of teenage girls would like to read this book! I think most girls would like Brooklyn and the guys she meets (Hunter and Brian). Brooklyn has had a lot of trouble in her decisions so she starts a blog to get other people to make them for here. Even thought in the end she realizes that she can make her own choises to what kind of person she wants to be and who she hangs out with. I love reading about how she matures during this story. She finds out that Hunter wasn't the one and she wanted Brian. But if you dont understand what I'm talking about, just pick up the book. You will love it.
