A book about teenage hankypanky, pregnancy and stepping up. Sounds like a perfect title for YOU REVIEW. MP!er Bethany shares her thoughts on ‘Trouble’, the “sharp, funny, touching” novel by Non Pratt.
Describe ‘Trouble’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please.
‘Trouble’ is an amazingly addictive book, it’s written really well and would appeal to a lot of teens or young adults. I couldn’t put it down!
The publisher calls ‘Trouble’ smart, funny and touching. Did they lie?
I agree with what the publisher says about the book, it’s very touching and throughout the book there are parts that I found amusing and funny. I also agree with the fact that the book is touching at times. It was a bit emotional and very touching.
What was the best bit?
It’s so hard to choose a favourite part of the book because I really enjoyed every single part of it. It has to be one of the best books that I have read! I thoroughly enjoyed it. If I had to choose a best bit it would be the ending when [MP! NOTE: REMOVED BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TO RUIN ANYTHING, OKAY?]
Anything you didn’t like?
I wouldn’t say that there was anything I really disliked about it apart from the fact at times throughout the book it was a little stereotypical of teenagers.
The book is about teen sex and pregnancy, did you find it realistic?
I found it fairly realistic and it was based on realistic information and talked about teen pregnancy in a really creative way.
Would you recommend to a friend?
I would definitely recommend this to a friend or a family member in the same age group as me. This is because it gives an insight into what teen pregnancy is like and it’s also realistic in some senses with how the main character has to stand up and face the consequence of having sex at a young age.
This book was a great read and I couldn’t put it down! I managed to read it in a short amount of time. I like the way it was written and the fact that a young boy stood up and took responsibility for someone else’s actions which weren’t his own.
