The book was all right, and was just your average shy girl meets nice guy and all her dreams vome true sort of stuff. The only part of this book that really bothered me was that she called other people "dense" when they didn't understand her, even though she only spoke one word at a time.
This book was reaaaaaally boring. I ended up reading it in about thirtt minutes, because i read the first three chapters, got really boredand skipped to the ending. I didn't feel like i missed anything, since i later skimmed through the middle, and all they did was talk. I had expected an adventure/romance book, but thrre was NO ADVENTURE at all, and the 'romance' is about a young girl (and yes, girl, because she is not even close to being a woman) getting hit on by some older guy. If this book were set in modern times, it would be about a freshman dating a college student. Ew. So don't bother to read this book, especially not if you're still in middle school, because it can give some young girls a seriously messed up idea that it is acceptable in modern society to date a guy that's four years older than you, even if all he's ever done to win you over was creep around behind you.
This book is a really interesting book. Unlike a lot of other books, this book doesn't show a girl who starts out ugly and magically becomes gorgeous. Instead, "My Life in Black and White" reveals the story of a girl who started out beautiful, but becomes scarred and no longer as glamorous as before. Though most people would find losing a pretty face a tragic story, the author shows that having a pretty face doesn't guarantee real friends, but instead, having a disfigured face can show you who's for real, and who's not.
This book is awesome!!! There is a cliffhanger ending, so I can't wait for the last book!!!
Even though the book was lighthearted and humorous, John Greene managed to make a haunting future await the Hazel and Augustus during their adventures. The ending was a gorgeous, but horrifying, plot twist, and it managed to bring tears to my eyes.
