Book: Twigs

When I read that the book was about a girl who was called twigs because of how small she was I feel in love with the idea. I my self am short ( not twigs short but small) and I get so tried of everyone else always being tall. This idea that only tall people are pretty and in YA that the beautiful girl is always said to be " tall,lean and pretty first thing in the morning".
As I started to read this book I quickly took a liking to it. I know a lot of people like Twigs. People who for some reason or another are never aloud to be human. People that are told to just take everything life throughs at them. And it sucks. I always hope that after people read books like this they walk up and see how they might be miss treating people in their own lives.
Twigs was easy to relate to. I think that we have all had a time in our lives when it felt like everything was falling apart ( maybe not in the way twigs was but still).
One thing that did get on me though was the writing. There was a really choppiness to it. Like the way we kept hearing about what twigs wanted to do but she never did it. I would get a little mixed up at times about what was really happening. And I felt at times like the other people in the book were very flat. No one went very far. They just were kinda there. Helen wanted a baby hated her husband and liked pink there was nothing special we found out about her or anyone else. I would have liked to get to know the other people in the story. Twigs was so special in a lot of ways and it would have added to the richness of the book to learn more about people in twigs life. But over all I found the book to be a nice read. Not really a fun light one but I did really like Twigs and if you have an interest in reading it I would give it a try.
( YA - 15 and up lots of uses of the F-word and two of the C-word)

I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. This did not in anyway effect my review or thoughts on the book. 


  1. I'm pleased you enjoyed this one, I hadn't heard of it before but I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the review!

  2. I've never heard of this one before, but it sounds really good. Twigs sounds like a girl most people could relate to. Great review!


  3. Glad you liked it but sad the writing was kinda choppy

  4. I like the idea of a short heroine, being short myself too!! I haven't heard of this book before, but it does sound interesting - disappointing about the choppy writing though. Great review!
