    One thought on “Little 15”

    1. Yesterday I was introduced to the world of 15 year old Lauren Muchmore. A good girl, who only wanted to please her father, play the piano, and enjoy a normal family life. Life--however had other plans for her. Little 15, is an extremely well written novel that provides the cautionary tale that all teen and parents should heed. Not only does this story speak to the events that have become far too common in todays news, but it also serves as a sounding board that I imagine so many young girls coul [...]

    2. The conversational tone of this novel lends a powerful immediacy to the tale, inviting readers not so much to share the protagonist’s mistakes as to examine their own. It’s unclear how long ago the story is set, but I’d guess the main character is still a young adult, looking back on events that took place when she was fifteen. She sits across the table from the reader, and her words pour ever more convincingly from the page.Lauren Muchmore doesn’t live in a perfect family, but she tries [...]

    3. This could have came right out of todays headlines!15 year old Lauren's story could have been ripped out of the headlines of any newspaper, any week of the year. It happens every day and we never hear about most of it. Because of the shame and the hurt that goes with it, most young girls try to deal with it on their own and never speak of it. Anyone raising children, especially teenagers, girls or boys, should read this book. Families have to get more in tune with each other. Too many of us are [...]

    4. I usually can't get into books like this one but I loved this book! I literally couldn't put it down and didn't want to do anything other than read the book. When I wasn't reading the book I was wondering what was going to happen and how things were going to end up for her. The ending didn't shock me because I could see it coming but I did feel bad for girl at the end of the book.

    5. The definition of terror is when you are absolutely certain that, despite all the wonderful hopes you have, despite the good things you see happening about you, things are going to go wrong. In that regard, Little15's greatest triumph in the book is the thin illusion that everything might work out for Lauren, yet the certainty that she is actually headed for a massive disaster.And it was at about the 75% mark of the book that I realized a lot of really important things had happened while I wasn' [...]

    6. Saye’s story is timely. Nearly every day, we hear about a teacher and student tryst; yet for privacy reasons, the student’s side is rarely seen.Lauren’s life is in turmoil. Her father is a bully, her mother as doormat, and her sister in rebellion. Lauren is the peacemaker, but in being one, she is being forced to changes schools and play basketball. She isn’t sure she wants to be an athlete; she loves the piano. At her new school, Lauren comes under the tutelage of Couch Krum. There is s [...]

    7. Oh goodness, this story was so good. Not in an 'Oh gee, I wish I was the main character, how she leads a fascinating life'. More like 'Oh wow awesome storyline, this author is laying it out for all to hear’. Stephanie introduces us to Lauren and her life, one no 15 year old should have to endure. Lauren tells her story, a confession of sorts, and makes no qualms it’s an easy one. Her story is laced with her constant need to please her strict father, trying to make a way in a new school away [...]

    8. Little 15 is an excellent book in two very different ways.First there's the sheer readability of it. I gobbled this book up. The prose flows, the story is engaging, the characters are heartbreakingly relatable. (I personally loved the mean, slutty big sister. She and I would have been BFFs in high school.) Any of us that survived being a teenage girl can easily relate to those confusing, obsessive hormonal surges that define the experience of love during adolescence even when that love is clearl [...]

    9. Reviewer: CharleeRating: 4 out of 5 FairiesLittle 15, well, what can I say? This is a book that will make you experience every emotion available as you follow the story of Lauren, a 15 year old basketball player, through a horrific time in her life.Seeing the story written through her eyes, reading the feelings that she has laid bare for us to see, almost makes you feel like you've been caught snooping through the girl's journal. Truly betrayed by someone who was meant to protect her, Lauren has [...]

    10. This was a storyline that intrigued me and repulsed me at the same time. Lauren is only 15 years old when her dad forces her to switch schools because he has ambitions of her being a basketball star, although those are not her own wishes. At this new school she has a "romance" with her coach. She has sex with him one time and ends up pregnant.I thought the book was well written. The author did a good job at portraying what would happen when a 15 year old attending an all girls Catholic school en [...]

    11. This book is not one that I would normally read. But I had it and thus I read it. First thing that came to mind was Amy Fisher (if you don't know who she is or what she did - you can google it). I thought it would end the same wayy was I wrong. I enjoyed how the main character talked to me, yes - she was directly talking to me, telling me about herself. As if, we met in an empty room and I asked 'so tell me about yourself' and she replies 'where would you like me to begin', and picks the most ex [...]

    12. I enjoyed this book and found Lauren's voice convincing and disturbing all at once. While I don't always enjoy books in first person, this was well done and perfect for the type of story the author was writing. My only hesitation with this story was I felt there were a few loose ends. I thought Ms. Saye's description of Catholic high school life in the time period was spot-on and I would recommend this book to others.

    13. What happened to the ending?Unless you're twelve or in a similar situation as the girl in this book, don't waste your time. If you are in a similar situation, there is so much better help for you then this book. What happened in this book is not necessarily how it has to be. And you can get your life back without becoming a 40 year old neurotic mess. The ending of this book offers no hope and no help to anyone. There is help out there.

    14. I won this book in a giveaway on this site. I really enjoyed the storyline and the pacing of the book. It is a short read, and I finished it in a day. One main complaint I have about the book, is that it desperately needs to be proofread. I found many grammatical errors, and it distracted me from the story. That is why I feel it deserves 3 stars; otherwise, it would be a strong 4 stars.

    15. Topic was daring and handled very well. its a must read for parents with teenage kids (girls in particular). This stuff happens ALL THE TIME! There was something about the internal dialogue that was disjointed at times for me, so the flow of the book wasn't always smooth (the reason for only 3 stars).

    16. Whyit was ok. it was about a teenager having an affair with her coach from basketball . She got pregnant. I don't consider it sexual abuse because she liked it as much as him but was only 13.

    17. This book is very disturbing. It is about how easily an impretionable young girl can be sucked into a relationship with a man who is twice her age. This is a very sad story but a good book. I received this book for free through giveaway.

    18. Couldn't put this one down!!! I enjoyed following Lauren Muchmore's journey. Can't wait for more from this author!!
