I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. This novel reminded me that your experiences between 12 and 15 can often be more fraught and transformative than anything that happens to you in adulthood. Thank you Ms. Steinke, for this time machine of a novel. View 2 comments. Jan 23, Afro Madonna rated it really liked it. I just finished reading this and I am mad as fuck!

MAYBE there was a deeper connective meaning to everything else that happened in the story which she was shooting for but that certainly did not work for me. Like how you gonna cut everything off like that? Like could i have had more closure?? That was all i was asking I just finished reading this and I am mad as fuck! That was all i was asking for!

I am actually very hurt , mad, frustrated and i want to cry. I legit refused to believe it was over and kept flipping the last page back and forth in disbelief. But, all that aside, an actual review. This book was assigned by my professor for my class and i went into it very hesitant and just plain skeptical per usual. I had no idea i was in for a most refreshing and inventive ride.

Sister Golden Hair - Race Results & Past Performances

The protagonist or our heroine i use protagonist in the most lightest sense as she was not very likable in the latter part of the story in my opinion Jesse, is a 12 year old with the inner voice of an 18 year old if you ask me, and an enjoyable curiosity about everything who, seeks to find herself in a world ridden with questionable fashion fads, 70s music, teenage angst, hippies, religious zealots, you name it. When it comes down to it i really liked the book. The diversity of characters, character quirks and overall intensity of the story and events were really engaging.

It also made me think a lot about my own childhood and transition to adulthood or womanhood and the different joys and pains that brought. Although i was not really that obsessed with the changes that happened in my life as Jesse was with hers. View all 3 comments. May 23, Sian Lile-Pastore rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. Love a coming of age story. Love a story set in the s. This is both. This is told from the point of view of 12 when the book starts year old Jesse, whose father has left the church and is now lying on the couch reading Alan Watts books I know, I know, I'd totally date him too , with the whole family having moved to a new house no location.

The story is told through her relationships with other people which makes it a little disjointed, but perhaps more realistic. I really enjoyed reading Love a coming of age story.

I really enjoyed reading this, and enjoyed the writing style too, but it did lose me a little midway and hasn't left a big impression. Lovely drifty, easy summer read. Aug 24, Kristine rated it liked it Shelves: edelweiss. I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Tin House Books via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you! This book is definitely a coming of age story about Jesse from the age of twelve to fifteen. It begins with her family in limbo after her father loses his job as a pastor. After travelling from place to place they end up in a duplex in the Bent Tree housing development.

"Sister Golden Hair" lyrics

From here Jesse struggles with all different kinds of young problems in an effort to figure out who she is and where she fits in. Through interactions with neighbours and the kids at school, we learn about her struggles. Not only is she at an age of great change while living in a new community but at the same time she is trying to balance her somewhat unbalanced family.

Her father doesn't seem to know what he wants to do with his life and her mother is obviously suffering from some sort of mental illness. It does not specifically say that she has an illness but gathering from the fact that Jesse rates her moods by numbers it is easy to infer. What I enjoyed most about this story is all of the references to trends, music, television and fashion of that time.

Although it took place a few years before I was born I could identify with the majority of things mentioned.

The only thing that was referenced quite frequently that I wasn't sure on was a jelly cup. What the heck is a jelly cup?? Did I miss out on something great during my childhood? What I wasn't too fond of was that with all of Jesse's trials and tribulations during this time frame there never seemed to be any resolution or real moment of clarity for her.

Perhaps this was intentional with the story ending when she was only fifteen and there is still so much growing to do, but I found it just kind of ended abruptly. There was no real beginning, middle and end. In the end I did like the book but I was left wishing there was just a little more something to make it great. Aug 17, Vanore rated it liked it. I thought I would love this book - because I'm the same age as the main character and wanted a chance to re-live the 70s through the vignettes of her life.

Some of it was lovely - endearing and observant. Really did identify with Jesse, although her name is spelled with the male variation which is weird. The author need to pay a bit more attention to her fact checking though - Lynard Skynard were not yet big in and Earth Shoes came later in the 70s - and did not exist as a fasion trend in I thought I would love this book - because I'm the same age as the main character and wanted a chance to re-live the 70s through the vignettes of her life.

The author need to pay a bit more attention to her fact checking though - Lynard Skynard were not yet big in and Earth Shoes came later in the 70s - and did not exist as a fasion trend in either. I get distracted by these details. Nov 01, Linda rated it it was ok.
