REVIEW for Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters

Thank you, thank you to author Meredith Zeitlin for so kindly sending me a copy of her book.

TITLE:           Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters

AUTHOR:     Meredith Zeitlin

GENRE:        YA

RATING:      4 Stars

First of all, I have to say that I loved the cover - not sure why, but I found it perfect for the storyline.

Now, for the book itself.  I loved it.  This is exactly the type of YA that I adore reading.  We meet our main character Kelsey who has decided that this school year is going "to be the one".  She is going to re invente herself to become THAT person - the one that everyone loves, especially her crush since birth.

Of course,  life gets in the way and what follows is a hilariously touching story about Kelsey trying to "fit" her life into what she thinks it should be, all the while realizing that will is about what you make it and embracing who you are - for your own sake.  Life lessons abound, but the author has incorporated them in a beautiful story that made reading this book a true joy.
