GERT GARIBALDI ISN'T ONE OF those Rants and PDFEPUB #227 people who believe high school is the best part of life She has a whole notebook full of rants about high school and she's fully aware of how ridiculous the experience is thank you very much Gert just wants to survive th. Just under a 4The Gert Garibaldi's Rants and Raves series is what I imagine the Georgia Nicolson series to be like sorta  There's a frenetic smart energy to it and a frankness that will strongly appeal to some readers and strongly turn off others  And I do mean strongly turn off  I wouldn't be surprised to hear about a parent reading this and pitching a fit and calling for a banningI'm not going to lie it was a bit of a slow starter for me  Gert is funny in the beginning and all but she's sort of funny in that too much enough already way  And she's got a decided bitter streak which coupled with some whininess was off putting for me  I didn't really connect to her as much in the beginning and she was starting to actually get on my nerves and make me doubt I wanted to finish when suddenly something changed  It's hard to explain without giving things away but it's sort of like Gert is at that dreaded teenager stage where you haven't really come into your own yet or even realized that it was a possibility but you can't let the sharks scent blood in the water so you fake it and mask it with this extreme nonchalance that borrows a bit from Asshole Land  We've all been there we all go through it but once you are through it you don't necessarily want to revisit itGert's got a lot of scorn but much of it is borne from having a lot of uestions  She's a little oblivious to her world and the reality of who she is and she's completely oblivious to the fact that she may be oblivious she thinks she's got it all pegged so when things start changing and she has to open her eyes a bit and risk putting herself out there she becomes much likable  She still keeps her biting wit but it becomes universally funny and less whiny  Gert started opening up and growing and I thoroughly enjoyed the book from then on  What really made it likable though was how unabashed Gert is  Part of it may be that she's still a little bit clueless but part of it is this really fun mix of eagerness curiosity dubiousness and naiveté  She asks all of the uestions that you wanted to ask but were too afraid to as a teen  Her narration and her rants are frank and often hilarious  I think many teens will connect to this and find their voice in GertNow I mentioned above that I can see this getting some very strong negative reactions  As I said Gert is very unabashedly curious  There are frank and frankly hilarious discussions of masturbation pubic hair maintenance homosexuality whether or not to ignore a boy's erection at a school dance etc  Some teens may be uncomfortable having it all laid out on the table like this and some parents will likely blow a gasket over the topics  But don't kid yourself These are things that every teen thinks about  They may not think it as loudly as Gert but it's hilariously realistic  Now I'm not saying you should force yourself to read it if it makes you uncomfortable  And I'm not saying anything is gratuitous  But what it is is honest  Gert reminded me a bit of Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower; she's not as guileless as Charlie but she is as hilariously and innocently unfiltered  I don't think most people will have a problem with this once they get to know Gert but it does bear mentioningAlso one tiny little pet peeve of mine I haaated the font choice for the Rants sections and page numbering  It was almost illegibleAll in all I think you can probably tell from this review whether this is the type of book for you  If it is give Gert a chance though she may annoy you in the beginning I promise you will grow to love her and find yourself choking on your own surprised laughter along the way

Review Gert Garibaldi's Rants and Raves One Butt Cheek at a Time

Gert Garibaldi's Rants and Raves One Butt Cheek at a TimeE next three years one butt cheek at a time with her best friend Adam by her side and maybe Luscious Luke attached to her Gert Garibaldi's Epublips With a stapler Or something But muddling through isn't even as easy as it seems there are geriatric parents to deal with Homecomi. Though it's been 20 years since I turned 16 Amber Kizer took me right back there with her wonderful character GertGert tackles life with her own philosophy of One Butt Cheek at a Time The reason for this phiolosophy is explained in the book and makes a weird kind of sense Each chapter is started with a rant or a rave which is a tie in to the main topic of that chapterGert came as a surprise late in her parents life and they are tired It's not that they don't love her but they've been there and done that For instance they agree to buy her a car because they are too tired to drive her to work but she has to get a job to pay for gas and insurance She has a gay bestfriend who is dating a Jock secretly of course and that has its own complications She has a crush on the Jocks brother that seemingly is going nowhere and a small group of friends through her bestfriend Adam She's dealing with keeping up her grades passing her drivers test and not being such a loner Things that most teens deal with everydayThis is one of those books that proves that we are all uniuely average That everyone is good at something and special in their own way without being preachy or demeaning It's funny and true and identifiableThis book could be to kids today what Are You ThereGod It's Me Margaret and Forever both by Judy Blume were to me and many others Although both of those books are still around and popular One Butt Cheek uses modern terms and addresses social issues that teens today are faced with Having said that it too is a timeless tale It's a book I will be giving to my nieces I highly recommende it for girls 14 and up Be warned it is blunt and even graphic in some of the sex talk though I did not find it to be crude A good place to open discussion about the facts of sex and what being a woman entailsI can't wait to see what the future holds for Gert and her friends
