Piper's never had great friends, and the ones she leaves behind are no exception. It is difficult for her to meet the needs of the friendships she builds in her new hometown, but I liked the fact that she was willing to see the difference between the old friendships and the new ones, recognizing that it was necessary to put forth more effort and become less self-absorbed. She doesn't take crap from anyone, including a competitive school photographer who isn't happy about Piper's talent for capturing stunning moments on film. This was an aspect of Piper's character that I found so appealing. Feisty and determined. She always remains true to her artistic nature, and it is clear that the author has a firm grasp of the nuances of photography which was something I enjoyed. I loved visualizing the scenes she created through a photographer's point of view.
Les is extremely lovable. He's the one cliche that I found in this novel, and the only one that I can tolerate because I just love a brooding, moody, mysterious guy. Fortunately, the author gives Piper and Les enough room to grow in their affections for one another instead of forcing the reader to choke down this ridiculous notion of love at first sight among high schoolers. There is more to Les than meets the eye, and don't we just love that? Nothing worse than a guy who is mysterious...and remains mysterious. Not much to work with there.Read more ›
Pixelated follows Piper and her misadventures as she tries and fails to fit into a school where everyone has known everyone since they were babies.
This was a book that I really wanted to love! I just couldn’t.
I liked that Murphy wrote small town high school kids in such a realistic way. The drama, the rumors, it’s all too familiar. But Pixelated also focuses on Piper’s life at home with her family and her struggle to fit in there as well. She’s moved with her mom and stepfather, after they bought two small town newspapers. While Piper wants nothing more than to move back to her home, with the father she idolizes, she’s forced to see the people she’s always loved in a new light.
One aspect that I appreciated about Pixelated was that Piper was forced into seeing her father as a fallible man, not as the idol she’s always worshiped. I think that’s something every adult goes through and it’s rarely seen in young adult novels. It’s something that Piper struggles with, but it also gives her a chance to appreciate her stepfather, Doug. She’s never really given him a chance because she thought her mother had cheated on her father with him. But once secrets start coming out, she allows Doug to be the father and friend he’s tried to be.Read more ›
