Review: Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty

Life is pretty complicated for Elizabeth Clarry. Her best friend Celia keeps disappearing, her absent father suddenly reappears, and her communication with her mother consists entirely of wacky notes left on the fridge. On top of everything else, because her English teacher wants to rekindle the "Joy of the Envelope," a Complete and Utter Stranger knows more about Elizabeth than anyone else. But Elizabeth is on the verge of some major changes. She may lose her best friend, find a wonderful new friend, kiss the sexiest guy alive, and run in a marathon. So much can happen in the time it takes to write a letter....


Dear Jaclyn Moriarty,

How have you stayed off my radar so long?

You are my find of the year! I have fallen in love with every one of your books and Feeling Sorry for Celia is no exception, I ADORE it. 

 I love the fact it's all written in letters (the ones from The Association of Teenagers are particularly genius). I love the characters, the drama, the friendships, the cute boys, the sad bits, the happy bits and the funny bits. 

Sometimes I laughed so hard I nearly fell out of bed.

Your books are now on my list of happy making things. Along side such wonders as Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the beach. Plus, they reside on my bookcase between Melina Marchetta and Elizabeth Scott, oh yes the love is deep.

I am on a mission to make everyone I know read your books.

Love Alexa


P.s blog readers, due to said mission (of spreading the word of the awesomeness of Jaclyn Moriarty) there may be a giveaway here, sometime next week. Just saying.

    Yes you're right I wish she'd start blogging again but on the other hand if no blog means another book sooner then I don't mind :)
