Undiscovered Gyrl by Allison Burnett
Review (Part Two) by Lauren
Summary: Beautiful, wild, funny, and lost, Katie Kampenfelt is taking a year off before college to find her passion. Ambitious in her own way, Katie intends to do more than just smoke weed with her boyfriend, Rory, and work at the bookstore. She plans to seduce Dan, a thirty-two-year-old film professor.
Katie chronicles her adventures in an anonymous blog, telling strangers her innermost desires, shames, and thrills. But when Dan stops taking her calls, when her alcoholic father suffers a terrible fall, and when she finds herself drawn into a dangerous new relationship, Katie’s fearless narrative begins to crack, and dark pieces of her past emerge.
Review Part Two: In the first part of the review, I told you all that I was enjoying the book and that didn't change as I continued the second half. I have now read it all and I found it to be a very intriguing novel. The end is a bit interesting...I can't say much, or else I might ruin the story, but it had me sitting there going "wait, that's it? what's happening?" This book is definitely about the idea of truth and fiction...if you're online, how do you know it's true? One person could be anyone. You just don't know.
Now, I wasn't a huge fan of the ending right away but I do think it goes along with the story fairly well. I will admit that I want to know more though. However, beyond that, I do recommend this. For the whole story and for the end. It should make you think about love (is there a happily-ever-after?), life (what makes you alive? how do you know you're living?) and so much more.
I'm really glad I was able to read this one. I only wish it was longer!!
