This review is from: Violet & Claire (Hardcover)
I loved her previous books, although I thought with "I was a Teenage Fairy" she was moving onto thin ice. Alas, with "Violet & Clare" I think the ice is cracking beneath her feet. I was barely able to finish the book, despite its shortness. The plot was boiled, the characters leaden and while Violet and Clare certainly represented the banality of the angst ridden teenager, I don't think that is exactly what Miss Block had in mind. I was so disappointed that I considered returning the book half-read, first time I've ever contemplated such. : < I managed to muster on to the end, but most of the plot has already flown from my mind. All that remains is a sense of disappointment and the feeling that perhaps she needs to write, for once, about girls who are not thin. Also, it might have have just been me, but the Lolita-like cover photo didn't do much for me either.
