She's loud, opinionated, and actually wants what everyone else wants - to be accepted, and respected. While she goes about getting it in ways that make her friends nervous, it helps her grow up. She has to face a lot, not only while going through changes to try and be the person she always wanted to be, but also realizing the consequences for being that person. It's something most people go through to some degree, but Ann does it with flare.
I think my favorite part about this book, was how it was written. Instead of being from Ann's point of view, we are told about it from a mysterious source, which is fascinating. The author did a wonderful job in assembling this story, making it unique, and creating an overall awesome coming-of-age story.
My only complaint, was the amount of foul language. About half way through the book, I had a "alright already, that's enough" moment, which I don't have often. I don't have the cleanest of mouths myself, but it gets to be a bit much sometimes, in books like these, especially when there are other things to focus on, and important lessons being explored.
It is also important to note, for parents, that this book does contain subject that might not be suitable for younger audiences. I would rate this PG-17, for scenes including the aforementioned language, alcohol, sexual references, and sexual assault. While I enjoyed the realistic nature, not everyone may be interested in that, so just be aware.
I would definitely recommend this book, and will enjoy it many more times, I'm sure.

As Ann struggles to make good choices and persevere, she eventually recognizes the people and relationships in her life that matter, and ironically it is deep family ties, in this somewhat broken family, that help to pull her through.
In a very clever way, the Ms. Steadman bonds Ann’s relationship to two other characters by their exposure to the writings and quotes of Thoreau. Hidden meanings they don’t understand become revealed to them as they each learn to embrace life on life’s terms despite its imperfections.
For a Young Adult “coming of age” read, this is is certainly one I would want teenagers to read, for Ann’s vulnerability, self reflection, resilience and eventual strength are exquisitely portrayed in an understandable way as to be an inspiration for young readers. The only negative for me was that a few chapters seem to run on a bit at the end, but as a father of two boys, I think Ann, Not Annie fabulously represents teen life.
I think Ann is a pretty great character. Seeing how she has to live with the only family she has, which is a alcoholic mother and a little brother. Her life is pretty hard for a fifteen year old. She spends a lot of time in detention, sometimes she doesn’t even really deserve it. But one day that’s where she meets Danny Feller. He isn’t popular like Jacob Waters, but he seems to really like Ann. He’s just having a hard time breaking down all of Ann’s walls.
I totally ship Ann and Danny though. He really understands Ann’s pain rather she wants to fight him on it or not. Over all the characters were great and each had their own individual personalities and played their part in Ann’s story!
