I loved Pixelated! It totally made me want to be a better photographer. And I adored Les and the tension between him and Piper--steamy and adorable. This was fun read that also tackled some heavy issues, making it a very well rounded book. One you don't want to miss.

I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Pixelated was suppose to be a sweet YA romance that left me feeling lighthearted. In some ways it was, but as I began to write my review it got me thinking way too hard about what should have been a fluffy read for a sleepy afternoon. Piper is a narrative voice that most teens will appreciate, with the blend of insecurity and assurance that plagues most young adults. She has a life change that makes her question her place in the world, despite the fact that she has a true sense of herself. This is a universal experience. Just when you think you have it all planned out, something can come along and take that feeling away. I think it was important that she retains enough of herself to weather the storm and come out on the other side without anything she really has to be ashamed of. In that sense, I enjoyed her journey and her resolution. Then came the deep thoughts. This book does perpetuate the myth that if you just stick around long enough, his love will eventually get him to break up with her for you. I hate that myth, and the fact that a YA book empowers it, even if I don't think that was the author's intention. Also, the romantic interest, Les, is a toad. Even hot, sensitive guys that you are attracted to and feel a soul connection to can be toads, and he is one. Trust me. Finally, I felt that some important themes lost their way in the course of the book. The question of friendship is raised several times, but ultimately it fails to leave a clear mark on Piper. She learns that her ideas of friendship aren't what they should be, but she never makes the investment in those relationships like she should have. Her new "friends" are still doing all the work with little reward, even at the end.Read more ›

I thought this teen novel did a fabulous job of shying away from some major cliches that plenty of young adult novels fall victim to. There was some teenage angst for sure, but the obstacles that prevent Piper and Les from being together right away are obstacles I've never encountered before and are central to the external and internal conflict of the story.

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.

Piper’s not happy about having to leave her home in St. Louis to move to The Middle of Nowhere, Iowa at the beginning of her senior year. She’s resolved to just make it through the year. Until she meets Les, that is. Navigating through small town drama, while trying to make new friends to ease her loneliness, and dealing with the lies and secrets she’s been forced to live with, Piper discovers that sometimes she has to step out from behind the camera in order to bring things into focus.

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.
