    One thought on “Trouble

    1. Trouble had so much potential For the first hundred pages or so, I really thought it would be a new favourite But as it progressed, it just didn t work for me.It had some good points The author did a great job making the dialogue, social interactions and thought processes of the teenager characters realistic and relevant There are countless people in the world actually like these characters I often read YA where it feels like no one on earth in any way resembles the characters we re reading abou [...]


    2. I ll be very honest now and say that the main reason I bought this one is because the cover really caught my attention I feel like having the sperms in there made the book stands out and it makes the book intriguing.But the cover isn t the only one that stands out, the story itself is powerful, thought provoking and brutally honest I ve never read a book about teenage pregnancy that is so real and fun yes, you heard me, fun Well, I ve never been pregnant, but when the tine comes that I have a b [...]


    3. Hannah and Aaron are fifteen year old students, attending the same school and studying for their GCSEs, yet they couldn t be different Hannah is quick witted, smart and loves to have a good time although not quite as much as her peers like to think she does , but school work is rarely on her mind as much as boys are Aaron is a quiet boy who prefers to keep to himself, hiding from the world, trying to overcome what happened at his old school He can barely think about it himself, let alone tell a [...]


    4. Here s a thing pregnancy freaks me the fuck out I don t want to talk about it, I don t want to watch Teen Mom, I don t want to even think about it.I think it s connected to some kind of anxiety that I will get pregnant cringe cringe cringe super mega cringe even if I m on the pill and I take it every single day at the right time and I m super careful about it In my mind I m always at risk And now please, I m done talking about this because I will probably freak out dramatic 10 minutes pause from [...]


    5. Before going into this I thought it was going to be a who was the father mystery, so I was really surprised when that s not what it was, like, at all I really liked Hannah and Aaron and would love to read a sequel about their lives after the birth


    6. I fucking love this book.I FUCKING LOVE THIS BOOK.Some of the reasons why I love this book This book is amazingly colourblind I think perhaps two or three characters have their racial phenotype referred to Otherwise, it s a perfect example of being able to read the characters as whatever way you think of these people, with hints based on their names Interestingly, I think to write this book in an American context wouldn t allow the author to do this Racial identity in the UK is hardly a non issu [...]



    7. Por vezes h livros que n o precisam de grandes floreados para se tornarem favoritos N o precisam de um grande enredo, de uma grande complexidade das personagens ou um grande assunto para ser debatido ao longo das p ginas desse mesmo livro Por vezes s precisam realmente que passem uma mensagem e Trouble o exemplo disso J h imenso tempo que um livro n o me prendia assim Adorei como a autora optou por contar esta est ria que acaba por ser bastante simples e com um final em aberto Pela din mica dos [...]

    9. This and other reviews can be found on my blog Book Blog BirdI picked up Trouble from the library, quite excited because it had been on my radar for a while All I really knew about it was the blurb it s a contemporary YA novel about a fifteen year old girl who gets pregnant and a friend of hers offers to pretend to be the father.I think I built this book up in my mind too much I saw that it was about underage pregnancy and that it was all acclaimed and everything and I thought that it would be r [...]


    10. Win a SIGNED copy of Trouble on Book Passion for LifeBuddy read with Amber I ll be honest, Trouble never really captured my attention until I went to an author QA signing when Non Pratt visited Birmingham close to the end of 2014 It was then that I became aware of the book and noticed the high praises I adore YA contemporary but sometimes when something different comes along like Trouble appeared to be I hesitate I start worrying if it s going to be any good and if I m going to enjoy it I guess [...]


    11. Juno is a fun movie Ellen Page nails it as the title character, conveying exactly the intended idea that a lot of the weirdness about teen pregnancy comes from our hang ups, as a society, about young women girls In the movie s desire to concentrate on how Juno navigates this brave new world, however, Michael Cera s character the babydaddy plays only a minor role That s fine for the story Juno wants to tell But I basically think now of Trouble as like Juno, but with a father involved Not the fath [...]


    12. This book made me cry in a coffee shop Who would have thought that would happen with me Brilliant book Full review to come Oh how this book had so many feels, and I was on the verge of tears when it came to the end Trouble is a book that I ve always been conscientious about reading because of it plot line and teenage pregnancy Its not something I really want to read about when I see it on a day to day basis But was I wrong, yes Miss Pratt created a far beautiful rendition of a contemporary nove [...]


    13. I enjoyed Trouble even than I thought I would At first I thought it was going to be a Juno like story, but with characters that would fit right into Skins not exactly people I d relate to I ended up adoring all of the characters except the big jerks, obviously , and being drawn into the complex relationships I loved the dual POV of both Hannah and Aaron two very different voices that ultimately fit together like two pieces of a puzzle The fact that they re both so quick witted made it all the [...]


    14. Actual Rating 4.5 starsGahhhh Just finished this and I m laughing and crying at the same time When I started Trouble, I was skeptical and didn t know if I was going to finish it, but I kept reading because it had great ratings from a lot of people whose opinions I trust But WOW, I ended up loving this book It s so original and beautiful in its own way Endearing and real I SO recommend this one


    15. While Trouble is written in an effortlessly engaging style I wasn t sure whether this would be my thing despite it having 5 star ratings from trusted friends Look, it opens with a dose of partying, alcohol, random sexytimes, attitude and angst, and some school mean girl undertones I have definitely outgrown these themes they have never been my kind of thing in YA but Hannah s voice was so refreshing that despite everything I continued on And I m glad I did I was hooked on voice from the start bu [...]


    16. I have been waiting to read trouble for a long time and I am delighted to say it didn t disappoint Trouble is the story of Hannah and Aaron Hannah is 15 and pregnant and Aaron is the new boy at school who pretends to be the father of her child It was the perfect read for me for several reasons Firstly the voices of both Aaron and Hannah are spot on The way they think, the way chat about things with their friends captures all those thoughts and feelings of a 15 year old and it draws you completel [...]


    17. This book was first brought to my attention by someone I follow, who recommended this book to everyone she possibly could, giving it a glowing review I like most books that she does, so when I saw it in the library I thought why not And Becky was not wrong, it was a very good book But it s one of those books that have me completely torn on one hand I love the issue it tackled, it had very real characters and the book engaged me But then I didn t like the way it dealt with certain issues.I loved [...]


    18. Hannah Shepard hooks up with guys to distract her from missing the real love of her life People label her as a slut and it doesn t really help that she gets pregnant.Aaron Tyler lost someone he cared for and wanted a fresh start to make a difference in the hopes of redeeming himself He pretends to be the father of Hannah s baby in the hopes of relieving some of his guilt.I liked the relationship of the two characters as well as their individual personalities I would have liked to know if they de [...]


    19. I enjoyed this book, I liked the relationship between Hannah and Aaron, as well as the conversations between Aaron and Neville and I was really wanted to read a friendship story So that was nice.But felt the story was a bit predictable.The story ended where I thought it was going to end, but like a lot of contemporary books you always want to know a bit after, rather than just finishing where they do.


    20. Actual rating 3.5 starsTROUBLE was a really enjoyable and engaging read about two teenagers who find friendship in each other when they need it the most.Hannah is fifteen and pregnant She can t tell anyone who the real father is When the whole school finds out about her pregnancy, Aaron, a new boy at school, offers to pretend to be the baby s father Aaron has a secret tragedy in his own past to deal with, but through his newfound friendship with Hannah, he learns that maybe it s finally time to [...]



    21. Trouble Review on K BooksNote Before I go on to review this book I just want to say that this is possibly the hardest review I have ever wrote Nothing that I wrote was ever good enough for the masterpiece that this book is I started this review 5 times before I decided to sit down with some pen and paper and handwrite the review I do this when I really can t write a review as it helps me get my thoughts into words After all the trouble starting this review I am so thrilled with it and proud of i [...]


    22. I ve been going back and forth whether I should rate three or four stars For a good chunk of the book I would say it was firmly at a three but I was very satisfied with the ending so I m going with four for now This is a dual perspective contemporary ya novel about two teens one of whom finds herself pregnant at fifteen and the other a boy that just moved schools dealing with starting over in a new environment after troubles at his old school They strike up an unlikely friendship and find themse [...]


    23. Originally posted at my blog The BibliolaterReasons why TROUBLE will be your new favourite book 1 It explores family themes like no other book When you start this book, it s pretty obvious this will explore families I mean, there s fucking sperms on the cover, what do you really expect , but I never knew it would do it just so well I loved the dynamics between everyone because they were so realistic, and family life was captured so well Hannah s family really became my own while I was reading th [...]


    24. 4.5 StarsFrom the moment I saw the summary of Trouble I knew I had to get my hands on it The quick and dirty summary is when Hannah finds out she is pregnant, she can t disclose who the father of the baby is Aaron the new boy at school does something unthinkable and offers to take on the role and support her in every way that he can Trouble is at times a gritty and realistic portrayal of the lives of teens and teen issues Pratt touches on drinking, drugs and definitely sex and she doesn t hold b [...]


    25. Originally at danio710WOW That was pretty damn near perfect And I don t mean in the conventional way, absolutely positively the opposite Non Pratt has crafted an elegant coming of age tale about a girl, a boy, a bun in the oven and all the trouble that ensues when one boy, a new boy, decides to take on the role of baby daddy When I first came upon this book while browsing through GoodReads, I thought to myself, Not really into the whole teen pregnancy narrative , Katie Cutugno s How To Love had [...]


    26. This is a bold, humourous, sensitive and extremely engaging book one that I, sadly, would have passed upon because teen pregnancy if I hadn t decided to give the first chapter a try and gotten completely sucked in.As I am not currently able to write a decent review since my life is chaos, I will leave you this as an apology gift, because it says all the things I want to say.Hannah and Aaron are characters I absolutely fell in love with.They are flawed as people, and that makes them nuanced, beli [...]


    27. This book isn t what I expected I thought I was going to be reading something that wasn t going to do it for me But I was wrong What did it for me most was the dual perspective of Hannah and Aaron and how they told their stories off each other so naturally It was like watching a movie but better, that is, knowing what was happening but at the same time knowing what the two protagonists were thinking and feeling What was great too was the fact that outside the Hannah and Aaron bubble, they both h [...]
