Title: Thousand Words
Author: Jennifer Brown
Rating: 3 - 3.5/5
wanted to make sure her boyfriend Kaleb doesn't forget about her. What
she does is taking a naked photo of herself and sends it to him. After
their break-up, she gets to know real face though - he sends it to
everyone she knows - and more people. While people call her ugly names
and life feels miserable for her, court orders her community service.
There she meets Mack, who is probably the only one who hasn't seen the
I haven't written a review in forever, so I thought it was
time to get back on track. Or at least give it a try. I'm sorry if it
isn't doesn't match your opinion about the book or whatever. I'm not
used to write reviews anymore, haha.
This book really had me
twisted. I really liked it though. The story is just great and also very
believable. You always read about stuff like that: Girl loves boy and
sends him a picture of himself, that shouldn't be seen by under 18 year
olds or anyone else but the boy at all. The boy is kind of evil and
sends the picture anyway. Or someone finds it on his phone and spreads
it around the globus. Not cool, no no. Happens all the time though and I
feel so sorry for the girls. I wouldn't say I feel sorry for ALL the
girls who do that...
That explains why this book had me twisted,
just like these "accidents" have me twisted. You can blame the boy for
sending the picture as much as you want, but in the end, nobody made you
take a naked picture of yourself. You have a free will, duh. And all
the consequences that follow are yours to take and deal with. I am not
saying that the boy is the sweety now, but there are always two sides to
blame and look at.
It's a serious crime though. It should not be
taken too easily. Teenagers may not think about the consequences of
their actions, but there are some. Serious ones even.
hated Ashleigh's "friends" though. They didn't seem like such a good
support. Neither did her parents. No one really did, and that guy Mack
was kind of ... I don't know. He was a bit strange, I think. And I'm not
sure if I should like the fact that's he and Ash are friends, or if I
like relationships better.
I would recommend this book anyway. I
liked it. That's what I actually wanted to prove or say for that matter.
It's written really well and you feel all of Ashleigh's emotions. I
also read "Bitter End" by Jennifer Brown, but I liked Thousand Words much better!
