This Ordinary Life
By Jennifer Walkup
I received a free copy of This Ordinary Life in exchange for my honest opinion.
The cover is what attracted me to this book, and I am glad it did! I am not a great fan contemporary books, the only other contemporary book that I have liked was Stolen (click here for my review of Stolen).
This Ordinary Life follows Jasmine, who is an aspiring radio DJ. She misses the biggest trip of her life to become a DJ intern at a New York Radio Station, because her brother had a seizure. What follows is a slow story, but an extremely moving one.
Personally, I found Jasmine a tad whiney, but given her circumstances it is understandable.
Although This Ordinary Life was predictable in some places, it way more than made up for that by it huge plot twists. At points I was almost in tears, of both joy and sadness.
I would defiantly recommend This Ordinary Life if you enjoy Young Adult Contemporary, or if you want to try to get into it.
