Book Trailer Thursday (130)–My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody

Book Trailer Thursday

After reading 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody I went right out to buy more of her books. My Life Undecided released in paperback last fall so I bought a copy as soon as I found one. I haven’t taken the time to book talk either book yet this school year. I think this book trailer will help with that book talk :)

My Life UndecidedSummary (From Goodreads):

PLEASE READ THIS! MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I’m sorry, I’m feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment.

Here’s the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I’m fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can’t remember the last good decision I made. I can remember plenty of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that accidentally burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure.

But see, that’s why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That’s right. I gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else decide which book I read for English. And whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: chew the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated!

Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can’t choose or have chosen for you—like who you fall in love with. And now everything’s more screwed up than ever.

But don’t take my word for it. Read the book and decide for yourself.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream in frustration. Or maybe that’s just me. After all, it’s my life.

Comments

  1. I’m not the biggest fan of book trailers but this one was really well-done, I actually laughed. It reminded me a bit of the TV show Awkward. I’ll have to read this one.

    • Mrs. Andersen says:

      Jessica Brody does a really nice job with her book trailers. Hopefully some of my students will pick up her books after watching them.

  2. True, you can’t always control/decide who you fall in love with.

I love comments!
