In this book my life as girl by elizabeth mosier was very interesting. although I dont think think i would ever read it again. it was good reading for the time being. Th book starts out when a young girl named Jamie was at her colege called Bryn Mawr.As she is stressed trying to get ready for a school a summer romance named Buddy comes back in to her life. The rest of the book she flashes back and tells the story of how she met buddy and all the trouble they got their selves into. The story shows how a young girl trys to earn her way into college while at the same time a sweet talker trys to let her have some fun and get her mind off of working so much. Elizabeth Mosier has a very distinct kind of writing. She tends to use inner monolouge a lot. Most of the time she talks about things that dont really have anything to do with the story. She will just go one and on about things unrelated to the story. These are the times where I really didn't enjoy the book and actually got very bored with it. The thing i liked most about the book was that she gave very good descriptions. It was like you were in the story. I also enjoyed the way the characters talked to eachother. Exspecially when Jamie would talk to Buddy, they talked as if they knew eachother forever even when they first met. Thier attutude towrds eachother just had a bit of sassiness to it that I realy liked. The plot line was not so great it never really got me hooked into the story. The ending was not thatgreat either. Usually there is like a big shocker and the end or a last paragraph that makes the whole story fit in, this is not one of those books, the end of the story just ends, point blank, nothing verey exciting about it. The reading was interesting though because it was a different kind of writing style that im not very used to reading. I wouldn't recomend this book if you are trying to really get into it because its very difficult. This is one of those books that you read beacuse its laying around the house and have nothing else to do. Over all the book was okay but not great.

While browsing through the library, I came upon this book and figured, 'Why not?' I'm glad I did pick up this book! I was amazed at how quickly it sucked me in! I couldn't put it down! Basically, we see Jamie struggle with her conscience and with decisions that face her everyday. Should she stay with Buddy or just forget him? If you want to find out what she does, read 'My Life As A Girl!'

A first love. A searing hot summer. A girl trying to figure out who she is and where she really belongs. All that and wonderful crisp writing make MY LIFE AS A GIRL a must read. If you love books by Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han and Deb Caletti, you'll love Mosier's novel too. I picked it up, devoured it in two sittings, and was sorry when it was done. Highly recommended!

I loved every minute of it! It was a heart-throbbing, thrilling, memorable experience. I gave it to my daughter for her eighth-grade graduation, and she and her friends simply loved it. Ms. Mosier realistically illustrates the college-romances and the "bad boy" whom Jaime Cody falls for. I recommend this to anyone, adults and teens, who love a well-written romance that beautifully captures lost love.

'My Life as a Girl' was an incredible story. I loved how the author told the story of Jaime and her summer romance with Buddy. I couldn't put it down, I just had to keep reading to find out what happened next: will Jaime stay with Buddy or not? The ending actually surprised me. I totally recommend this book to any teenage girl who enjoys romance books. You should definitely give this book a try.
