I really liked this book, because it included problems that girls face everyday. It was unique at the same time, though! I love how Lauren doesn't care what others think! She is such a great person, READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!

bittersweet sixteen definitely gave me bittersweet feelings. I haven't read any other book by Carrie Karasyov but her writing style isn't what bothered me. i feel that this book is targeted more for younger girls around 13 or 14. the book does a good job of expressing the pressures of being in high school and trying to fit in. other than that its not the most relatable because its not everyday a 16 year old goes to a private school on a scholarship with other girls who are all the offspring of celebrities and movie producers or just filthy rich. also its not everyday your two bestfriends get into a fight over who has the most extravagant sweet 16 party throughout the state. bittersweet 16 is cute but not so much an intelligent or meaningful read if thats what your searching for. young girls could relate to the main character Laura while in school because she just wants to be like everyone else and do all the fancy things her rich friends get to do. its full of all the teenage drama and fights girls go through. you have the basic middle school love story, the cute boy likes the pretty girl and would never think twice of "average" girl. throughout the book you feel for Laura and wish she would more considerate friends and the courage to speak her mind. when the book finally has its turning point i felt excited for them and as if i was really there. the end is relieving and you almost hope one day it'll happen to you in a less dramatic way.

I loved this book. I read it when I myself wanted a really super sweet sixteen. The fact that all of Laura's friends have money and she doesn't I can relate to, being the poorest of my gagle of friends. Laura finally gets a wake up call about what means the most to her and that you can have a great Sweet 16 without having to spend a ton of money. She really developes throughout the book and its fun to be around when she goes through everything. Caution I can't spell

So I am not much of a reader. I like to read but I lose interest really easily, however this book is by far the best book I have ever read other than Before I Fall. It constantly kept me interested and I kept looking forward to reading it. The story was so similar to things that have happened to me and I loved that. Fantastic book, I highly recommend it!

I dont know about this book.:.((. I mean, it was all fun from the glitz and glamour. . . . but i mean come on . You can tell fom the begining that in the end laura would end up with jake. He was perfect for her, not whitney or sophie. I think no matter how much they apologized to laura she now knows how they truly are so she can keep on watchin her back around them. You could kind of tell how the book goes. If the book was real, i would have liked to go to whitneys and sophies sweet sixteen parties. that would be sooo rad. All in all, you shold get this book and read it if you are bored , thats what i did i thought it was nice. I write this reveiew thruthfully and honestley.When I got to the end of the book ifelt like shouting yippee yi ya!!!! for laura for FINNALY hooking up with jake. I saw it coming all along but i was still excited.

Bittersweet Sixteen was an amazing book! It was very cute and somewhat funny. You can really relate Bittersweet Sixteen to real life. I really never liked reading, and I decided to give this book a try. It was an amazing book. Now I find myself wanting to read all the time. Carrie and Jill make you feel like you are a part of the book, experiencing the drama and gossip with the characters. Bittersweet Sixteen was an awesome and cute book. I promise you will like it.

Personally, I loved this book. It showed that sweet sixteens can be stressful yet they can be fun. I really liked how Laura was down to earth and she didn't care if her party was expensive or fancy. I think there are a lot of girls in the real world who act like the ones in this book who are mean and catty but also nice, understanding girls like Laura. Yeah it's nice to have a huge party with all of your friends and whatnot but it's also not bad to have a small party and still have fun. It all really matters who your true friends are and sometimes you need to find out the hard way like Laura. Overall, i would recommend this book to anyone who likes this style of writing or are around this age group.

this book was really good! i kind of knew what was going to happen though because i've heard this story somewhere. Anyways, it wasn't my favorite because it didn't grab me, and im a total book lover and i love to read but this one didn't make me want to have everyone read it. like i said, it was good and i got through it fast, but i didn't WANT to read it like other books, meaning, when i got something to eat, it didn't make me want to go back just to see what was happening next.
