Tôi đã mang cái này trong tuần trăng mật của mình để đọc ở bãi biển và nó thật tuyệt vời. Tôi đến từ một gia đình Ý và hiểu nhân vật chính đến từ đâu (và nói về khi nói đến các món ăn, v.v. họ đang tham khảo). Nó sẽ đến với bất cứ ai đã có một đại gia đình xung quanh và đang cố gắng sắp xếp nơi cuộc sống của họ bắt đầu và nghĩa vụ và nghĩa vụ gia đình kết thúc.

My Thoughts: Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of Lauren Barnholdt. If she wrote it, I will read it. I love all her of books! Fake Me A Match is more Middle Grade than Young Adult. I tend to stay away from Middle Grade because usually I don't like reading about 12-13 year-olds. But when I saw what this was about I knew I had to read it, plus its by Barnholdt. We are introduced to Avery who is 13 years old. She lives with her mom. She is getting a new sister (stepsister) because her mom is marrying a guy and his daughter is coming down from New York to live with them. Avery couldn't be more stoked. She's an only child and she's finally going to have someone to share things with and be a real family. She couldn't be more excited! Blake and her Dad move into the house. It isn't as picture perfect as Avery hoped. Blake is kind of high maintenance and she gets her mind set on something, gets it, than doesn't really care about it anymore. Avery gets put in charge of the charity project for Student Council. It’s a matchmaking service. Everyone fills out a questionnaire, than a computer goes and matches people up and people pay to get their results. Sounds pretty fun, right? Avery isn't really into it, she doesn't think about boys too much. But she does like one boy in particular at the beginning of the novel. But, Blake likes another (Sam) so Avery figures she'll be nice and change the results so Blake gets matched with Sam. Her plan doesn't go the way she expects it too and things get very very complicated. Not only that, but Avery is starting to have feelings for someone else. Lets see, I really liked this book because I liked the angle with the dogs, I liked the boys, I liked the relationship between Avery and everyone else. It was fun and full of drama. There was a lot of drama. Remember, this is more middle school and its more fun than real serious. So at times the characters can seem pretty immature and young but I still liked it a lot. Overall: I really enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. If your expecting an in-depth book, you might want to stay away from this one, BUT if you want something cute and funny, read this now! It was what I was in the mood for and I liked it! Cover: Like it. Not usually into cartoon covers but the description alone made me want to read this. What I'd Give It: 4/5 Cupcakes ______________ Review Based On Hardcover Edition Taken From Princess Bookie www.princessbookie.com

Comment: A wonderful book that I first read thirty years ago. The comparison of Hegel and Freud (the ruses of reason vs. the ruses of desire) is simply the single most brilliant discussion comparing these two thinkers that I have seen. The discussion of Freud is, quite naturally, intelligent; but buy the book for the comparison of Hegel and Freud. The ruses of Reason face to face with the ruses of Desire might be the best short description of human life we have...
