D as the prime suspect With everyone believing him to be guilty Tyler spirals into a n. A former geek Tyler Miller got himself in trouble because of a prank The Foul Deed he pulled at the end of his junior year He was sick and tired of being a nobody a zit on the butt of the student body so he decided to to something that will put him on the map But things don t go exactly as planned and he gets caught Judge ordered him to do community service all summer helping janitors in his school Plus he had to pay for the damages he caused so he sold his car and worked for a landscaping company all summer Tyler doesn t mind hard work it s something he s good at and it s a cleansing experience for his mind and body especially his body I decapitated dandelions all morning leaving carnage and death strewn in my pathI was good at digging holes It was the rest of the life I sucked atIn addition with dealing with his messed up family dad is a first class asshole mom is a pet photographer cake baker and a nice lady who smells faintly of gin and sister Hannah is just staring high school he has to deal with his new reputation his AP classes his parole officer and his alarmingly high testosterone levelsHe s on a short leash AND on thin ice AND he really needs to keep his nose clean That s that Work hard at school Keep your nose clean and come back in a month Again with the clean nose thing Authority figures had a pathological fear of boogers that s how I saw itBut things are not all that bad there s a upside to all this During the summer he goes trough a growth spurt he s six three and one ninety five now and because of his hard work for the landscaping company he s packing some nice looking muscles so the most popular girl in school Bethany Milbury is finally noticing him Tyler has a huge crush on her but he s not exactly confident enough to do something about that and when he finally makes a move some unexpected things happen and he must figure out how to deal with themTyler is a great guy and one of my favorite YA characters He s a great brother to his younger sister he s a great son to his mom and his trying to please his over controlling and a little bit psycho dadOne of the reasons I loved this book so much is because it s written from a guys POV and Laurie Halse Anderson does a great job with TylerHe s not emo but he s sensitive enough and his hormones are working overtime but he s not acting like a dog in heat And he s really funny in a sarcastic and intelligent way I picked up one of the books and flipped through it Don t get me wrong I like reading But some books should come with warning labels Caution contains characters and plots guaranteed to induce sleepiness Do not attempt to operate heavy machinery after ingesting than one chapter Has been known to cause blindness seizures and a terminal loathing of literature Should only be taken under the supervision of a highly trained English teacher Preferably one who grades on the curveThere are some things about Tyler that are disturbing but probably not that unusual for a teenager who s going trough these kind of problems He has violent thoughts about hurting his father and hurting other kids in school and about hurting himselfview spoiler But thankfully he never does any of the things he s imagining doingexcept when he smashed his father s train set with the baseball bat but he didn t really hurt his father even when he wanted to and even when his dad really crossed the line hide spoiler

Ightmarish paranoid state of mind He is desperate to find a way out of the mess he's i. Once you ve thought long and hard enough about doing something that is colossally stupid you feel like you ve actually done it and then you re never uite sure what your limits are If you ve never read anything by Laurie Halse Anderson before let me tell you that she writes some of the best hard hitting realism Speak took a close look at a rape victim Wintergirls focused on an anorexic girl Twisted is centered around suicideAnderson has a gift for being able to dive into the minds of teens I think a lot of authors miss the mark when they try to write teen voices and their characters end up sounding like they tried way too hardWith Anderson it comes naturally Her characters think like teens have realistic relationships and their behavior accurately represents teenagers Twisted shows the side of Tyler s life that he won t let his friends see his depressed abusive father who is tearing their family apart and how Tyler spends his time thinking up different ways to hurt people I didn t fit I was a different size a different shape I kept trying to sueeze into a body a skin suit that was too small Tyler s narrative was so sympathetic no matter how hard he tried he could never live up to his father s expectations But the portrayal of a serious issue wasn t the only good thing the plot also intrigued me and the writing was addictingI loved the ending it sent a great message about suicide No matter how bad things are what people are saying about you or how you feel about yourself you can take control of the situation and change things for the better When there is the possibility of a brighter future ahead why give up now

    This book didn't really do it for me The whole time I was reading it I kept thinking that if I was a teenager I would have had my jaw gaping open at some of the plot twists but since I'm now a jaded adult I felt like the events that occurred were a bit emotionally manipulativeMain things that bugged me the fant

    The I think about Twisted the I think it is an effective and unusual contribution to any YA collection Halse Anderson accomplishes two remarkable feats in this book First she gets the teenage male voice and preoccupations perfect; Tyler's hard ons are just as much a part of his daily life as his social anxieties crushes and homework And secondly she manages to address the deep level importance of family life h
