Addicted The Impermanence of Sound Stratosphere It cracked me up when she noticed most of the other students glancing down at her notebook to see what her name was before replying, but still continued undaunted. And I was glad for her when, after forcing herself week after week to get involved socially, Ellen found she had forged some real relationships, which eventually led to a date with a nice, hardworking guy at the very end of the story.
These unfortunate girls lived at a time when looking attractive was difficult! In the film "Pleasantville", pretty, shapely Reese Witherspoon gets sent back in time to the malt shop era, and even SHE looks portly and matronly in the clothes and hairstyles of the period. Light meals were a challenge to find. Makeup only came in fake-looking shades and consistencies.
There were no fitness centers or exercise classes. Contact lenses had not yet become widely available. It was NOT a good time to be a homely, pudgy girl. Not that any time is, of course--but at least today girls don't have to go around in an A-line wool skirt and blouse if they don't want to!
One point worth noting : despite their parents' shortcomings, all three of these girls come from two-parent families where they are loved and supported. Life today has its distinct advantages, but the two-parent family has sadly become a casualty of our modern times. Jul 13, Tracey rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: teenaged or pre-teen girls. I read this book when I was in 6th grade at Central Jr. High School East. I was our class Librarian, in Mrs. Brummett's class.
I loved this book; I think because it gave me insight into what life would be like as a teenager. It made an impact on me. I'd like to read it again. Oct 27, Jillian rated it it was amazing. I'm not an expert on this genre of midcentury teen girl novels, but this book fascinates me.
It's sort of an inversion of the likes of Beverly Cleary or Rosamond du Jardin. It's practically a horror story.
There's something Sofia Coppola ish about it. This book gets right something that hardly anybody gets right--the mundane humiliation of being a teenager.
Everything is pathetic and embarrassing. Nothing is comfortable. Social situations are bleak and unforgiving and hardly ever rewarding. The I'm not an expert on this genre of midcentury teen girl novels, but this book fascinates me. The three main characters don't particularly like each other. Their friendship is extremely unhealthy. I first read this maybe 10 years ago and I still think about it. Jan 28, Wendy rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Kelly, Betsy.
The Unchosen Ones — R. J. KERN
Shelves: behind-the-door , scary. This is a strange book. It was written in the malt shop era, but the writing style is kind of strange, and each of the three heroines is a little bizarre.
The book is almost embarrassing to read in spots, as we witness their sad attempts to fit in at high school they make a list of boys who would possibly date them, all in at least one of three categories: brainy, shy, poor. But there's something sort of valiant about the narrator, Ellen, who doesn't give up even though she knows she's patheti This is a strange book.
But there's something sort of valiant about the narrator, Ellen, who doesn't give up even though she knows she's pathetic. The shy, awkward girl; the smart gawky girl; the fat, stupid girl--see what THEY were doing while Tobey Heydon was wangling a new formal and even Penny Howard was being chosen prom queen. View 2 comments. Feb 11, Matt rated it it was amazing. A teenage coming of age story written in the 60's about three unpopular girls that decide that they're going to get boyfriends any way they can. I found it to be quite good.
“The Unchosen Ones” Author Talk With R. J. Kern
I also found it to be not a romance at all, as I was expecting it to be halfway into it. A good book for an unpopular teenage girl to read. Jan 28, Betsy rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-i-own , all-time-favorites. This is one of those books I've read over and over and over. I don't know why; I wasn't one of those girls in high school, but the story obviously had great appeal for me. Maybe I just liked the descriptions of all the food.

I'm shallow that way. May 20, Lisa Mcbroom rated it it was amazing Shelves: teen-reads. The backdrop are three girls who can't get a date It is not really a romance however more of a coming of age story in which 2 out of the three find their identity.
