Taking The Plunge
By AwesomeBooks Customer, reviewed on 11/10/2012
The book immediately starts off with Electra finding herself in a pickle after betting her Chloe’ bag as a retort when her friend says that Electra would not go out with anyone under any circumstances. She comes up with a plan on how to keep the bag, which is to go out with anyone that asks, but fails miserably when the vainest, most pompous boy asks her out in front of the guy she actually likes, Frazer.
Electra finds herself escorted home by policemen more often than she would like, and her best friend runs away from home as she cannot take her mother anymore. But all ends well when she is found by Electra herself, and Frazer and Electra resolve the confusion between them, the ending leaves a lot to be told also.
This humorous book is surely not one to be missed! It touches sensitive topics like teenage pregnancy and self-injury in a way that various authors fail in, as the topics are regarded in a different, more helpful way. Bailey manages to capture the reader’s heart in the mushy conversations between Frazer and Electra, and makes the reader laugh at the absurd way Electra tries to fix her problems and her sarcasm in certain serious situations.
So if you are looking for a hearty laugh, this book is a must. It will certainly leave all the readers wanting more!
Our Thanks go to Yasmine for the great review.
