Jessica Brody does an amazing job of bringing out all the insecurities and problems that teens face. "Baby Brooklyn" or Brooks has a really strong and humorous voice. The premise hinges on her bad decision-making skills. And oh boy, is she not wrong about how bad they are. But I really sympathized with her, even during the moments I wanted to shake some sense into her. I like how flawed Jessica Brody's characters are. The growth they go through makes a lot of sense, and as a reader, I cheer for them as they go through it, even when they stumble and fall. This is my second read by Jessica Brody, and so far, she is on a roll. I love her books, and highly recommend them.

What happens if all the decision you make are bad? Well Brooklyn is someone who can't make the right decision. Ok.... well maybe I should say it just doesn't go as well as she thought. Read to find out how Brooklyn decides to fix this little problem.
A cute little stand alone. Great read for a rainy day!

This was an interesting book to read and it was really funny! The character is someone who most teens can relate to in some way or another and I think that is what makes this book just so much more terrific!

My Life Undecided is a book I would recommend to any teen. The main character is funny and snarky, just your average teenager, but also incredibly capable of love when she decides to care. I love the blending of a blog with the novel and I think it would definitely appeal to current teens. All of the characters were great and they bring a well-roundedness to the story. The book was a bit predictable but you still root for that ending because it's what you want as well. Overall I found myself laughing out loud, gasping, aww-ing, even tearing up a bit at certain parts. Definitely a novel I wouldn't mind reading again at some point.

I didn't enjoy this book a lot ... interesting premise, but it seemed kind of silly and shallow to me.
