2.5Do you ever find yourself reading a book and thinking that you would probably have enjoyed it a lot if you hadn t already read something that does the same thing but much better That s how I felt for the majority of Dear Life, You Suck It s a teen problem novel that attempts to be funny whilst at the same time delivering an important tale about the life of someone in an unfortunate situation While I enjoyed it for the most part, I still find myself wanting to point people towards Tales of th [...]

I could barely get past the first page with the godawful slang and homophobic slurs A glance at later pages showed that neither of those things improved, so I gave up on this one.

If the title isn t enough to convince you to pick this book up, then this might not be the book for you But trust me you re missing out on a real gem Scott Blagden s debut novel DEAR LIFE, YOU SUCK is the story of Cricket, who is about to age out of the boys home he lives in.Cricket is an amazing narrator His voice is absolutely absorbing, and plot relevant He s definitely a teenager, and shoots himself in the foot sometimes I absolutely adored one scene where he realizes his actions caused him [...]

Scott Blagden s breakout YA contemporary novel Dear Life, You Suck, will punch you in the gut as much as it tugs at your heart strings Its wise cracking protagonist, Cricket Cherpin, is a streetwise orphan who questions the life he s been given parents who cared about drugs than him and a misunderstood, hard knocks life growing up in a Catholic orphanage in Maine His first step towards making sense of it all is an English assignment in which he s asked to draft a letter to someone he s had issu [...]

I didn t enjoy this book for 2 reasons the lack of an original story line, and the writing style voice of the main character I felt overall that this story has been told a million times Boy that grew up on the wrong side of the tracks falls for the popular girl, has a heart of gold, but only knows how to use violent behavior Boy finds out he s good at something and that there s to life than what his rough upbringing has shown him This book is basically a modern day retelling of The Outsiders, b [...]

Scott Blagden has created a snarky, cynical and irreverent voice with Cricket Cherpin He has been living in an orphanage run by nuns for the greater part of his childhood and is now on the verge of turning 18 As his 18th birthday nears, Cricket must make some life decisions Unfortunately, the only thing he is good at is using his fists His past has left him full of guilt and a wall around his heart It isn t until an interest of a girl and a near fatal accident that Cricket finally realizes life [...]

As the back of the book states, Cricket Cherpin s life sucks This is one of the most engaging books I ve read in ages I am a HS librarian and this was an ARC I got at a book show I was blown away by how authentic, tragic, yet comedic that Cricket is through out the book Cricket lives in a group home in the middle of rural Maine His house mother is a nun with an attitude wrapped up in her religious habit She seems hell bent on keeping Cricket and the younger children in her charge on the right tr [...]

I read alot of books I mean, ALOT of books But it s rare that I want to start a book over the second I read the last word of the last page Cricket Cherpin, he of the cursedly unfortunate name and infinite sarcasm, struck such a chord with me personally that I wish I could give than 5 stars.He is infinitely flawed Damaged physically and emotionally Yet, he stands up for what he believes in He stands as protector for those that are too weak to do so themselves He does it all while being grotesque [...]

I wanted so badly to love this book and I just couldn t do it.I will admit that part of this problem is likely the fact that I am neither a teenager nor a boy, so instead of finding Cricket clever, I mostly just found him obnoxious But then he d do something completely sweet and I would like himbut then he d go out of his way to be an even bigger creep than before, so then I d hate him again.To be fair, I know a lot of it has to do with his backstory two awful parents and a dead little brother a [...]

I think Cricket is one of my favorite characters of 2013 I either had a smile on my face or a lump in my throat I loved the relationship between he and Mother Mary, and also his relationship with the Little Ones The last two Dear Life letters he wrote tugged at my heart The ending was wonderful

The lack of an original story doesn t matter so much when the book makes you laugh every step of the way Predictable, with too much sentimental bs at times, but definitely one of the funniest I ve ever read.

Such poor vocabulary that it was absolutely brilliant and hilarious Maybe not so appropriate to all my friends out there on but the title grabbed me and the book just pulled me into this world Definitely a book I couldn t put down.

This book was interesting, compelling, touching, and at times laugh out loud funny It read like a stream of consciousness than anything else There wasn t a big plot it was like the main character, Cricket, was learning to grow up in his own way.
