    Oh My Goth by Gena ShowalterFirst published 2006.Young adult twist on Its a Wonderful Life or Freaky Friday.The first half of the book sets up the lives of Jade, Mercedes and new school classmate Clarik. There is tragedy, friendships and deliberate cruelty. And then reality is twisted and they must learn and understand their new world to survive. As is typical with this type of renewal and awakening story, I cried through the last 50 pages. It wa...

    As much as I’d like to say that Oh My Goth would have helped me when I was younger, when I was in my “goth” phase, I don’t know if I would have been ready to learn the lesson it’s trying to get across. Reading it now feels like a breath of fresh air and something that I can fully appreciate and understand. I can understand Jade before she goes into the “goth world” and after and what she learned. While this book came out when I was ...

    Jade Leighton had a hard life, and the time after that wasn’t spectacular either. With the death of her mother when she was little, she decided that not going to feel for anyone or anything anymore is the way to live. Then, she won’t be so devastated when they go. Because in her experience, most everyone goes away – family, friends and even hopes for a boyfriend. It’s just easier to stay apart – let them talk, it doesn’t really affect...

    Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well when I started this one I thought I was going to hit it right off and it was going to be the love of my life this year. But sadly here I am writing a DNF failed read review for it. I am very sad right now. Do I Recommend this book? Not really Notes and Opinions: When I picked this one up I was so excited man! I love Showalter and I really wanted to love this one. I mean look at that premise it ...

    This book is extremely cliché. I feel like there was no actual meaning to this book, about 20 pages in, I was ready for it to be over.The story of this book is that Jade and her enemy Mercedes are hit by a car and go into this sort of freaky Friday reality. In this reality Jade, on day 1, seems to care about all sorts of things she had no care for at all in her actual reality. (view spoiler)[When Jade finally wakes up, she's completely changed a...

    This book was a good read, the story was really sweet. I was pretty skeptical of this book based on the description, but I really enjoyed the story line. I loved how this book explored the character's emotions thoroughly. The best part of this book is the way it inspires the reader to feel so much. The worst part about this book is the way the main character talks sometimes. It is not constant, but the main character speaks very melodramatically ...

    Didn't start out really loving it, but when Jade went to the "other" world, things got a lot better! She really grew as a person and I loved seeing her journey to learn to appreciate what she had. The last 150 pages or so were really good for me and even made me a bit emotional! Heartfelt moments secretly really get to me! LOL. Shh, don't tell.The only one I wasn't really that hep on was Clarik. I feel like he was a bit much at times in his decla...

    No... just no.This book is not a good portrayal of goth culture or nonconformity. It made outcasts out to be a bunch of snobby dicks and popular kids all airheaded bullies. Jade was so whiny and full of herself! She had no redeeming quality as a character whatsoever and neither did her gang of friends or the enigmatic new kid in school.
  • Louisa
    This revamped version of the story was so freaking amazing! There were a few things the same, like the characters, but we learned more about them, and that the world changes and everybody but the outsiders are Goth, but other than that, this book is totally different! Loved it, it was just so great to read!

    I had read this book in the older version but picked this up anyway on my kindle. This book rocks! You learn along with Jade what has happened and how she and her "friend" need to change. Definitely recommend this book!
  • Elizabeth
    I really really enjoyed this book and liked how the character of Jade changed and realized that she took everything for grantedand it's definitely a quick read that can be finished the same day.

    Oh My What an uplifting story. This should be required reading for teens. Appreciate what you have, or lose it. A heartwarming, wonderful reminder for everyone.
