      Well that was mildly amusing And I m also 98 years too old for this kind of fluff, unfortunately There was a whacking big sticker on the front of my copy that said Recommended for ages 12 May contain references to Young Adult issues Definitley agree with the 12 thing But references to Young Adult issues WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN Absolutely nothing bad or serious even happened in this book Although they said crap , so tut tut for all that hardcore swearing.Basically the story is about 15 year [...]

    2. Christine Bongers says:
      I m so looking forward to launching this book at Riverbend Books in Brisbane on 3 May Michael Gerard Bauer is one of my favourite writers and his latest book is every bit as sweet and funny as the man himself.

      This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Thank you to Australia for providing a review copy All thoughts and opinions are my own.The Pain, My Mother, Sir Tiffy, Cyber Boy Me is about exactly that It s a bit of a slice of life story, following fifteen year old Maggie and the weeks leading up to her Year Ten Graduation Dance During these few weeks, her mother gets a new boyfriend, who Maggie immediately finds a pain, hence the nickname The Pain And the presence of The Pain [...]

      Read bookish goodness on my book blog Cal s YA ReadsNo other way to say this aside from that is sucked It Was Crap This is basically a girl from year 10, writing in her diary, a week before her semi formal.Now I ve only just graduated, and that may have been 2 years ago for me, but this was pathetic She seems completely self absorbed, desperate for high achievement and a boy to validate her during the semi formal.She s a bit of a brat Completely 2 dimensional.And I kept wondering why isn t this [...]

    5. Scott says:
      Loaded with geeky references, Macbeth quotes and puns, Bauer s latest novel is a hit His writing style is, as usual, funny and quirky The story is heart warming and relatable At first, Maggie, the protagonist grated on me, what with her capital letters and hyperbolic descriptions But these calmed down and I grew to like her I imagined Danny The Pain to be a younger version of Bauer himself Mr Bert Duggan reminded me of Tom Leyton from The Running Man, Bauer s first novel Sir Tiffy has an amusing [...]

      Don t usually bother to review books I DNF, but I ll just pop in reasons why.For a young adult story, this felt very childish Dozens of italics and capital on every page, moderately fun voice, but ultimately fluffy, waffly, with little real content and not for me Some very young female adults might like it 11 13 years , but only if they re quite shallow and silly and Lydia Bennett like Which we all are at some point in our lives and in some moods, probably On the other hand, I think I would have [...]

      Michael Gerard Bauer s books leave me quaking at the knees, usually with laughter and emotion Surprisingly, this one is not at the top of my favourites of his but I have a feeling it will be a hit among gaggles of school guys and gals Me s aka, Maggie Butt s teenage life is messy and mucked up Every time she gets close to achieving one of her Three Specific and Realistic Goals they are lampooned out of the water There s a drama queen quality about Maggie I found slightly unnerving at first howev [...]

      Awwww Well this was just adorable This book channels the Princess Mia Thermopolis we ve all been missing, and gives it that extra Aussie push Meg Cabot fans this one is for you

    9. Sai says:
      great for passing time, bit of a slow read, but i thoroughly enjoyed its message at the end.


    10. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ says:
      Ok, I really wanted to love this book It had a cool title and the cover was nice too This book really disappointed me First of all, it was very childish Pretty much the only things that classify this book as young adult are the mild swearing and drug references That s it I found the main character Maggie to be very annoying and plain boring There was too much sarcasm and too many capital letters I really wanted Michael to nail this book because it would be awesome if a man could pull off writing [...]

      This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Maggie has three realistic goals for the year Unfortunately, her past seems to be halting any sort of progression she s going to need to step outside what she thinks, and think about other people too.This novel takes both its name and its conversational writing style In the tradition of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Now, if you ll remember my review, [...]

    14. Heather Gallagher says:
      This felt painfully reminiscent of my high school diaries which I suppose reflects well on Bauer, capturing his audience But I m afraid I found Maggie a self absorbed, selfish pain in the butt I found it hard to care about her problems although I did feel a bit moved by her alcohol fuelled vom fest after unexpectedly seeing her estranged Dad in a film at a sleep over with some potential new friends I also liked the cool cars that arrived to take her to the dance Probably this would appeal to jun [...]

      As Robyn who lent this book to me commented Should we think men who want to get into the minds of teenage girls are a bit strange I found a diary of mine recently I was 22 when I wrote it Maggie writing here sounds scarily like re reading that diary

    16. Nella says:
      This will be one of those novels you read in the right mood and find very funny and moving or read it when you re not so receptive and it will be barely OK Luckily for me, I read this on the perfect day.

    17. Tina Jameson says:
      The cat had me snorting and chuckling, causing my 12 year old daughter to roll her eyes and ask me not to embarrass her by reading in public.


    18. Christine says:
      A great story if Maggie s character doesn t grate too much In SF due to content but Maggie is quite young Year 8 and above.



    19. Sue says:
      Decided to leave out most of the book and check out how it ended Very predictable but maybe this usually award winNing author shouldn t attempt ot be a teenage girl Totally OTT.
