Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I've been getting several reviews on Snitch lately, and my favorites are the ones that mention "The Dad Rule". In the book, my hero, Andy, has the option to call his dad anytime of night if Andy needs help. It is understood that no questions will be asked, and no judgement passed.

Lots of people like The Dad Rule. In fact, I'm surprised at how many people talk about it. For me, it's just a way of life. My father made that rule up for me, and I raised my kids with it. I hope other people adopt the rule; it's a tribute to my father.

And he was a great dad.

I am so impressed with Kirst's writing style. Her character development is amazing and right on. Kids these days really do struggle with some bigger issues than have ever been dealt with previously. This book uncovers some of those issues and how kids deal with them in an acceptable manner. Cyberbullying is one of those problems in this book, as well as misbehavior in class. Bigger issues like suicide and homicide are also themes covered in this book. Too many people gloss over these difficult topics, but Kirst pushes forth head first. All kids need to be aware of these things and have real conversations with their parents. This would make a fantastic read aloud with a parent.

The language that is used in this book is written at a lower lexile level so that even students that are struggling with reading can effectively read it. Kirst has taken everything into consideration with her book about the realities that high school students face today. Get a copy and read it with your child today.

SNITCH by Kat Kirst is apparently the author's second novel. From the cover to the last page of the story, it's completely obvious that this writer was in no hurry to complete her book and chunk it up on the Internet as an ebook. The story is well crafted with a defined arc, three-dimensional characters, and dialog that reads like true conversation.

The story, an abbreviated coming-of-ager, centers around a normal 15 year-old boy who faces some rough choices, the same choices all kids face to one degree or another. In the throes of developing his first romance and managing studies vs his involvement on the basketball team, Andy begins to see some real differences in how choices can impact lives. His best friend drifts away from him and mixes with some kids who are in to over-the-top pranks, bullying, and then something far more serious. Andy has to make choices, too, and he does that naturally and with a fair degree of suspense, relying appropriately on his own instincts, support form friends and family, and a desire to stand on his own.

Any further description of the plot will necessitate spoilers, so suffice it to say that young readers will find a distinct resonance of their own lives, challenges, and successes in these pages. It's told from a male point-of-view, unusual to be sure from a female writer, but it works. Even younger teen readers who think reading may be too challenging will find this book a pleasure. It's a fast read, exciting and fun, too. The book deals with cyber bullying, peer pressure, social attitudes and mores, as well as teen life in general. I loved that Kirst could easily have gotten preachy and lecture-y on some of these issues, but she didn't. She tells the story carefully and respectfully without talking down to her target audience.

I'm old enough to be their grandmother, but I identified with the high-school-age characters in Kat Kirst's "Snitch." I found the characters believable and their dialogue natural. More important, I cared about them as they faced the serious issues of cyberbullying, homicide and suicide. Kids don't have an easy time these days, and I'm sure this book will help many young readers to see that they are not alone and to learn from the choices made by Andy, Johnny, Seth, and the others. The chapter titles--many in the form of hashtags--added a nice touch to this contemporary story, and the book was well edited.

I downloaded this book free of charge, but no other consideration was given to me in exchange for a positive review.

I have two grown children of my own and have worked in middle schools for the past 18 years and currently work in a high school. I enjoyed reading "Snitch" and I believe it's a great reality check for teens. We, as parents want them to have those "childhood years of innocence" to enjoy before having to experience too much of the real world. The truth, however, is that they are surrounded by more serious matters than I ever was and unfortunately they must realize, at an earlier age the possibly serious consequences of their actions and reactions. I believe this story is very realistic and can make a positive impact on the choices of young people.

Read this book because I was searching for appropriate books for struggling tweens/teens that could be helpful to them. This book and Surviving My Family are both exactly what a few of my students needed. Kirst's book is realistic and I could identify with several of the characters in different ways. A must read.

I'm a 14 year old freshman and this book led me astonished. At the entire I just sat their speechless. I play basketball for my freshman team and I could really connect to the book. It was So well written. I hate reading, I always have. But I finished this book in 2 days because it was that good. There's multiple lessons to be learned no matter what age you are. It really made think of things in a different perspective.

I have read all of Kat Kirst's book, and this one is my favorite so far. Having taught school for several decades I have seen first hand what peer pressure can do to students. Wanting to fit in, yet doing the right things make it difficult for students at this age. This book really shows the reality of these decisions. This is a must read for junior high and high school students. Looking forward to her next book!
