There are many different strengths and weakness with this book. One strength about Funny How Things change is the way Melissa Wyatt describes the mountains where Remy lives, it makes you feel like you are there looking at the mountains with Remy. “Remy looked out the side window, opening on a view of Greenlea Mountain, the summer haze softening the familiar shapes of treetops into a great green cloud, rising out of the hollow…”(160). Another strength about the book is how she used words to make you feel Remy’s pain and how you could tell he was confused and hurt about everything. Another strength about this book would be how accurate it is about teens life today. How everything in your lives after high school changes a lot. With them moving awhile to go to a college or just getting a new job. There relationships change with everyone like their friendships and if they have a boyfriend or a girlfriend. Sometimes they work out but like Remy and Lisa’s relationship they have to make the decision they want, not what your boyfriend/girlfriend wants you to do. Weaknesses about Funny How Things Change is how the book just ended, never said what happened to Lisa or if Dana and Remy are together. Need to know how things ended with Remy and Lisa, are they still friends or do they not talk at all anymore. Another things is how Remy just needed it with Lisa. They were together for two years and he just ended it. Did he really not want to go or did he do it for a girl that he barely knew? “I’m saying I don’t want to go. I - I changed my mind.” (186) Remy did say he changed his mind but about what? The book left you guessing about what Remy finally decide to do.

This book is an overlooked little gem of a character study of a young man deciding what is most important in his life. The West Virginia setting is so beautifully drawn, it becomes a secondary character in the novel. Wyatt's prose is lyrical but accessible and readable.

This story is about a boy named Remy who is in love with a girl named Lisa. you will fall in love with it more and more as you read it. It's a thrilling , never want to stop reading until the last page , and then you want to read more. If you have a chance to read this book and you don't , you're missing out on a good book. I think everyone , who likes a book that you feel like you're living yourself this is the perfect book for you!

It's not very often that you read a love story from a guy's point of view. FUNNY HOW THINGS CHANGE by Melissa Wyatt is not a typical love story, either, which makes this book all the more desirable. When you grow up you, you move out and move on, at least that is what Remy's girlfriend, Lisa, is doing when she heads to Pennsylvania in the fall for college. Of course, Remy wants to go - it's what Lisa and him have been talking about for years. The start of a whole new life, everything they have always wanted. Or is it? It's okay to be uncertain, especially at seventeen. You are not expected to know everything, but if you are going to leave, make sure you are doing it for all the right reasons. For Remy, Dwyer, West Virginia, is his home and no matter where he goes or wants to go it will always be his home. Some people may look at Remy and think that because he is one of those mountain people that he is a hick, a redneck, or a hillbilly. Home is where the heart is. While he doesn't have much, he and his pops live in a trailer up in Walkers Hollow, Remy knows every nook and cranny of that place, and he looks forward to seeing those mountains every day. He knows he is home. His family all lives there and his roots are deep into the soil of the mountains. The two loves seem to be in competition with each other. Which one is stronger? There are a lot of factors that play into this tug-of-war. His family, money, and even an outsider's opinion will weigh heavily on what he decides. What is the right choice? I think there should be more characters like Remy Walker. By no means is he perfect, but he has a good heart and head on his shoulders. Through Wyatt's characterization, you get a real good feel as to who Remy really is. To me, Remy is a hero. Thoughtfully written, this was a good, quick read that made me want to go to the mountains of West Virginia and see the same beauty Remy saw.

this book was great. it was a good book to read that put you in the place of the charchacter. while reading this book i made strong connection to the charictors and felt over welmed by the emotional strands that came out and bit you.
