Thanks for the Trouble I have to say it, peoples I DON T GET IT When this happens and my brain just goes abort abort, I honestly will admit that it s probably just me Not every story meshes with everyone right But I recently read When We Collided and got super frustrated with it And Thanks for the Trouble LITERALLY FELT LIKE THE SAME STORY Aka larger than life girl sweeps into unsuspecting hopeless broken boy s life and FIXES HIM in a glorious rush of surreal amazing activities I just don t like it Mostly b I have to say it, peoples I DON T GET IT When this happens and my brain just goes abort abort, I honestly will admit that it s probably just me Not every story meshes with everyone right But I recently read When We Collided and got super frustrated with it And Thanks for the Trouble LITERALLY FELT LIKE THE SAME STORY Aka larger than life girl sweeps into unsuspecting hopeless broken boy s life and FIXES HIM in a glorious rush of surreal amazing activities I just don t like it Mostly because the girl character will usually views herself as PERFECT and RIGHT and doesn t really care about her actions towards others view spoiler Zelda did not AT ANY STAGE plan to be part of Parker s life She absolutely lead him on and let him get attached to her, and gave him things and had sex with himdespite 100% planning on jumping off the bridge And she made HIM fix up HIS life, but hers was the good way She was justified He was not I HATE THIS Every time I read a book that does it another is Say What You WillI get so angry and frustrated hide spoiler Also what genre is this Is it contemporaryor or or paranormal It s a genre bender and I DON T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE BOOKS WITHOUT GENRE RULES Zelda claims to be immortal But otherwise it s a very contemporary sounding feeling novel.So the story is narrated by Parker, who has mutism and he communicates with writing in a journal He meets Zelda at a hotel and tries to steal her money, and she takes his notebook and BOOM they end up together for the day She says she s immortal and going to kill herself at the end of the day so Parker decides to convince her to live Which is a premise I really likeif it hadn t have had the immortal part in it It just threw me MY BRAIN IS TOO BLACK AND WHITE FOR THIS, FOLKS.I really liked Parker He was absolutely adorable and I loved how his mutism was handled He knew sign language, but mostly he communicated with writing No one got after him for his mutism because technically it s selective But he hasn t talked in like 5 years and honestly it was a disability mental illness I guess But handled so so well I loved how sweet and self depreciating his humour was and HE WAS JUST A REALLY NICE GUY.Parker is also Hispanic I guess the cover designers didn t get the memo of that fact failZelda though I would not have got on with her in real life, let s put it that way She was VERY over the top and lavished things everywhere and honestly justified everything she did with the dismissiveness of someone who believes they re never wrong I m irritated, okay PLUS I DON T BELIEVE SHE WAS IMMORTAL JUST DON T.The storyline itself was highly entertaining though They eat a LOT of food yummmm and they go all over the city, visiting museums and cinemas and gardens It s NEVER dull I was really quite invested in the story Apart from the oh this is a YA book so there must be a party where everyone gets drunk scene I M JUST GETTING A LITTLE BORED OF THAT CLICHE Ahem I really rooted for Parker to start recovering from his grief andgah, I just liked this part immensely BUT THAT ENDING WUT It is a very open ending andthan a little unrealistic I mean, there s the whole immortal girl thing So am I allowed to say the ending was unrealistic view spoiler After ALL THAT HAPPENED, Zelda killed herself She jumped She forced Parker to fix himself and then she jumped and I justno I don t even know what message this sends Plus the chapter after, Parker didn t even seem to CARE He was all like and that was like a nice 2 days of my life, but moving forward Plus can you HONESTLY expect to get into an Ivy League school when you have a criminal record, barely attend school, and have abominable grades Idek because I m not American, but after all the other books I ve read where they re busting their guts to get into school, this felt unrealistic hide spoiler All in all solidly not a ME book The storyline frustrated me too much with it s vague genre bending and I disliked Zelda and all she represented PARKER NEEDS A HUG AND A WARM CUPCAKE THO And it could ve toned down the life reflective soliloquies Anyhow This book is worth the trouble ahhahhaha ha ahem of reading I just am not shelving it as I book I ultimately liked SADNESS This is definitely one of those books that are a fun and enjoyable and adventurous read but somehow where most people finish it in a sitting it kinda.lost my interest than once NOT TO SAY IT ISN T A GOOD BOOK, BC IT DEFINITELY IS I just.idk So this book is about a boy who has developed mutism since he was a child after a traumatic accident But the boy is a fluffy marshmallow cupcake who is also a writer and the cutest thing since stuffed animals Basically I love Parker A LOT So th This is definitely one of those books that are a fun and enjoyable and adventurous read but somehow where most people finish it in a sitting it kinda.lost my interest than once NOT TO SAY IT ISN T A GOOD BOOK, BC IT DEFINITELY IS I just.idk So this book is about a boy who has developed mutism since he was a child after a traumatic accident But the boy is a fluffy marshmallow cupcake who is also a writer and the cutest thing since stuffed animals Basically I love Parker A LOT So the book is set in a very easy going, slightly sarcastic tone and that definitely clicked with me right from the start He was just your average teenager Or a little above average, actually A solid seven out of ten Maybe a B B on a good day, in the right light, taking the most forgiving possible position on his too thick eyebrows and his weirdly prominent dimples when he smiled and his slight butt chin.Fuck me This is turning into a disaster, isn t itI laughed really loudly at that Anywho, so the writing is easy and humourous, the characters are interesting enough so where s it lacking you ask I will answer with everything else Idk if this is just me, but I felt like the majority of the book was the characters going on a wild goose chase per Zelda s desires only for the book to end in a very predictable manner Or maybe it was just predictable to me but idk I saw it coming from the start And then it just made the whole book seem frivolous, like we were just reading through filler to get to the real conclusion And it really felt like filler to me after a while, I was growing bored really quickly yikes And Zelda was a GOOD female lead but she was also tiring like really tiring Like I barely read for 10 minutes straight without getting exhausted by everything she was She s basically the perfect example of a manic pixie dream girl ikr who would have thought I d ever use such language and I just couldn t take her seriously there I said it But that s not to say I didn t enjoy it bc it definitely was a fun read with deeper than expected undertones Its just not a memorable book in my honest, humble opinion So for sure pick it up if you re looking for something fun and fast and easy It just didn t make me rethink my life or squeal like a toddler who is high on sugar that s what classifies 5 star reads for me if anyone was wondering 3 stars It s been a while since I read a book in a day I actually ended up enjoy this waythan I expected It was a quick fun read with some serious topics mixed in there The female character can definitely be seen as a manic pixie girl but it still worked for me Also I enjoyed the short stories that were included throughout the book Worth the read Ack This was just my cup of tea.

type of person and don t mind life punching me in the face sometimes I m also not a long term planner, I only make plansin my head instead of writing ish down like normal and organized peoplewhen I see fit For that, I ve never really thought of goals for the present future and that s fine The one constant thing in my life that I like to keep is how grateful I am for anyone and anything that comes my way So anyways, whoever is shaking their head and or getting confused by now I HAVE A SOLUTION FOR YAH Go and read this book like right now The only thing that you need to know before going into this is that it s not your typical boy meets girl and boy falls in love with girl story The writing is just stunning and there s a nice twist to the story telling aspect The rest will take you by storm Aaaaaand for those who plan to give it a go if you tell me you finished reading this book without feeling anything towards these characters then are you even human I m just kidding I ve been wanting to get to this book ever since I heard about it last year so I really hope that it won t disappoint me currently reading it for the 24 Hour Readathon that my friends and I are hosting feel free to join 3 I Ve Got Some Questions For You Was This Story Written About Me I Shrugged Yes Or No I Shrugged Again, Finally Earning A Little Scowl, Which Somehow Made The Girl Even Pretty It Brought A Bloom To Her Pale Cheeks And Made Sharp Shelves Of Her Cheekbones It S Very Rude Not To Answer Simple Questions, She SaidI Gestured For My Journal, But She Still Wouldn T Give It To Me So I Took Out

Bright Futures, He Skips School To Hang Out In Hotels, Killing Time By Watching The Guests But When He Meets A Silver Haired Girl Named Zelda Toth, A Girl Who Claims To Be Quite A Bit Older Than She Looks, He Ll Discover There Just Might Be A Few Things Left Worth Living For 4.5 I don t know why I decided to read this book, but I was thoroughly engaged by this 17 year old, reclusive high school boy who stopped speaking after his Colombian father died in a car crash But Parker writes So he s a mute Latino who plays chess and writes stories Not exactly Mr Popularity He skips a lot of school,

decided to read this book, but I was thoroughly engaged by this 17 year old, reclusive high school boy who stopped speaking after his Colombian father died in a car crash But Parker writes So he s a mute Latino who plays chess and writes stories Not exactly Mr Popularity He skips a lot of school, and his mother is a bereaved flight attendant who drinks heavily To stay dry for the required 12 hours before flying, she stokes up on Bloody Marys for breakfast if she s got a night flight Parker is raising himself and has resorted to petty crime pickpocket stuff hanging around hotels Attractive, silver haired Zelda is ripe for the picking, having left a wad of cash momentarily on her breakfast table, and Parker is quick to make off with it but has to go back sheepishly for his journal, which he s left behind.He carries it with him, not only to communicate, but also for his writing He has an imaginative view of the world, and Zelda is a bit intrigued She isn t quite the teen he and we first thought, and he s not able to fool her the way he fools his mother and therapist This is a coming of age story with a twist for which you will be asked to suspend disbelief I did so gladly, Zelda s effect, first on Parker and then on Parker s mother, is interesting, but likewise is Parker s effect on her He may be an innocent, but he s insightful His parents loved each other, but his father was a disappointed author with a temper As Parker put itThey loved each other like the ocean loves the shoreline eating away at it, little by little, day after day They loved each other like the sunlight that makes the plants grow, then scorches the leaves and bakes the moisture from the earth As he and Zelda explore San Francisco, he lets us into his head a bit and she opens up the world for him Before Zelda, there were things he never thought of He likens it to when he was little and his dad took him fishing in Alaska Parker got a bite, played the line to hook the fish with people cheering, and then, they went quietI d lost the fish And you d think I wouldn t have given a shit I mean, so I didn t have a fish, right Who cared One minute earlier, I hadn t a fish either But somehow, that one minute of struggle had transformed the very concept of not having a fish, from something that didn t matter at all to something that mattered a whole lot If I d never met Zelda, well, that would have been one thing I m glad I met both Parker and Zelda Wallach tells a great story Many thanks to him, to NetGalley and to Simon and Schuster Australia for the preview copy from
