Overview

Get a Life (Clearwater Crossing Series #1) by Laura Peyton Roberts

When a classmate is diagnosed with leukemia, the students at Clearwater Crossing High School organize a fund-raising carnival. But after they've formed teams to work the booths, the members of one group find they couldn't be more different. There's aloof Melanie, the girl who has it all, and wannabe Nicole, who only wishes she did. Best friends Peter and Jenna jump at the chance to make a difference, while football jock Jesse sees a perfect opportunity to impress. Brooding Miguel keeps to himself, to the frustration of confident Leah. And tagalong Ben? He just wants to make some friends.

Soon the carnival is over, and the surprisingly close-knit team members drift back to their regular lives. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes, will the eight friends come together again? Or is it time to say good-bye?

These books were some of the best I have ever read. I read all 20, and I wish there were more in the series. I recommend these to any teenage girl. I have to say that they related very close to things that happen in my life!

However I am not a teenage girl. I read the first 50 pages. Seem to be well written. The setup is somewhat slow, but I knew it was not going to be a book I would get through from the first page. However I liked the christian style writing. I will keep this book in my libary to lend via nookfriends. From what I read I think this series would be good reading for teenagers or young adults.

This was a good, quick read. The story was interesting, fast paced and held attention. I've only read this first book of the series but this will be a series I recommend to my teens. There are several characters with their own personalities and backgrounds, which makes the story very easy for any teenager to relate to. I really appreciate the characteristics and actions that come into play. There wasn't any unbelievable teen drama, just reality that everyone has a different upbringing, past, current status, belief- and they can work together despite all of that and even accomplish really great things.

This was a great YA book! There were places in the story where one felt he/she had slipped into a different story. The author attempted to set the stage of several individuals and his/her family's interchanges. It wasn't a smooth transition between scenes and at times one felt a little lost. However, the author was able to bring the reader back into the story. This was the first of a new YA series. It portrays eight different individuals in, mostly, separate social groups, with little in common, come together at school for a worthy cause. It is, also, the tale of how this group implausibly became friends. Plus, in this first book of the series, it alludes to how each individual's dreams rarely turns out as he/she wants them to. It relays how often what we truly desire is in conflict with what another desires at the same time. High School is such a cray time of life, filled with turmoil, emotions, and self discovery. As shown in these writings all youth mature in a different way in different stages. It is clean and parents can comfortably know what their youth is reading is totally good material. Key Points I derived: Adolescent interaction, Individual beliefs, Grief, Vanity, Peer Pressure, Functional/Dysfunctional families.
