Undone

“You think people leave this earth when they die, but they don’t. Nothing is finished. Not really.” (Quote from book)

written by: Brooke Taylor

my rating:
5 stars!!!!!

Serena Moore isn’t the most popular or most beautiful girl at the school. Kori Kitzler on the other hand is, that is until that day in eighth grade when Kori tells Serena that they have more in common then she might think. That short meeting in the bathroom brought Kori and Serena to be best of friends. There are so many rumors going around about Kori that Serena isn’t sure what to believe.
Serena’s mom and her friends don’t seem thrilled that she is hanging out with Kori the “dark angel”, who gets Serena involved in smoking, drugs and other stuff that Serena normally wouldn’t do. One day in Serena’s favorite class they are asked to write a list of five things that they hope might happen during the school term, “Their five ways to tempt fate.” Serena takes this assignment as a joke, her five things that she writes down aren’t that important.
When something immensely catastrophic happens to Kori, Serena finds out that Kori took the assignment far more seriously then her. Serena feels as though she has been left alone on this earth, and all she has are the list of five things that Kori wanted to complete. Serena is faced by many challenges that she normally wouldn’t complete, and that Kori would, while she struggles to make sure that Kori’s list isn’t left undone…

This book and I were inseparable! It was amazing, staggering, and very much so tremendous! At the beginning of the book I was thinking “this is a good book” but after the 4th chapter I was thinking “This isn’t just a good book it’s a wonderful book”. It was full of funny, and disconsolate [drink] moments. One thing I especially liked about this book is that Brooke Taylor wrote about the high school life as it truly is. My most favorite character in this sensational book would have to be Kori. She was herself she didn’t have the fear to do something. If you dared her to do something, she would do it right then, that second.
I would recommend this book to every teen out there, it is not one of those books that are “girly”. Actually I would recommend this book to adults too. One lesson I learned out of this book is to live everyday like it could be your last. So go on Amazon or any other book site and reserve your copy of Undone, this absolutely wonderful book will not disappoint you.

~*~ Due to content in this book I do not recommend that anyone under the age of 14 read this book.~*~

P.S For those who do not know why I put [drink] in my review, you need to read the book to find out!

I read this book at my boss's request, because she didn't want to take the time to read it. I was surprised that I actually enjoyed it. The first few pages were a little shaky, but I grew to sympathize with Serena.
