    1. I received a copy through First Reads.The topic is certainly timely considering I just read an article in the New York Times yesterday about the rise of suicides at one particular school.There were a few minor things that made me hard to really believe in Kim and her unending pursuit of perfection:1. I found it difficult to believe Kim does not know why men choose a more violent method to commit suicide than women do. She is supposed to be this uber brainiac, right?2. Does she really think, wit [...]

    2. Khristina Chess' Straight A's is a good read for any young person who feels pressured to succeed, or any parent who is looking to understand the pressures felt by teens and young adults. Chess was able to tackle a difficult subject while keeping with themes expected from a YA novel, like crushes.

    3. I'll be the first to admit that it's been quite a few years since high school. While Straight A's is geared more towards the younger crowd, it's a novel that is applicable for just about any age. It's about dealing with stress and pressure, and about how the need to be perfect can bring a person down. Kim is set to be the valedictorian in her class, when her depression hits full force. Dealing with her parent's separation and the possibility of a less than perfect grade in some classes, Kim feel [...]

    4. I really liked this book. I think that the main character Kim is pretty relatable. And I was a sucker for all that goes on with "The Poet". I liked the story as a whole, the only thing that bothered me is that sometimes it seemed to jump from one thing to another and I was disappointed that nothing more happened with Lonnie's character. A lot of the book is about what Kim is thinking and she talks about big topics in her class or just to herself. I would definitely recommend it.

    5. Okay readDefinitely a young readers story line. Good plot but not much on romance. The story is more about self discovery. Would recommend this except I would have loved to see more romance.
