You would think that this style wouldn’t necessarily work out too great, but it’s a near flawless presentation. Sean, the guy who seems to be second-guessing all the choices he’s made and now wants to change them.

Honestly a pretty dumb book.


Apr 14, Erica rated it liked it Recommended to Erica by: I did sort of like the twist to the ending of that story. This is definitely an stokarz book.

While many of the characters get the revenge, love, or redemption they seek, the story overall seems like it could have had more than pages to make a really good full circle, rather than adding in a few characters who don’t add much to the story. You get the idea. Jan 25, Angelina Simmons added it. She is over weight and her other two sisters aren’t.

She desperately wants to be with him even though she already has stoparz boyfriend, Sean O’Connell. You submitted the following rating and review. Most of the characters in the book never knew each other except a few and by those few individuals, the other individuals started to know each other. Well you have to read to find out. Between the anger, the danger, and the perversions that motivate the various characters, the stories focus on at least ten ways of being dysfunctional.


Book titles OR Journal titles. It was also very crude and with these 10 teenagers randomly connected it makes you think all teenagers have their own little quirk or dark secret which isn’t the case and couldn’t one of them be happy? Over all, Laurie defiantly let me down with this story.

I think there has to be a certain high level of idiocy involved here. I don’t remember the end very well, but I do know that it ends badly. I would rate this book three stars, because I would have liked more time to learn about the characters than one chapter for each of them.

If we believe it to be so, then it is sstolarz. Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! Then, the plot was just boring. Dealing with bleee as a main priority as well as friendship, hate, families, school, stolaarz, etc. And all of these characters are connected to each other through at least one other person. Oct 21, Lisa rated it it was amazing.

They finally get to meet up upon his release only to have Kelly run off, leaving Robby with the waitress, Joy. Nicole likes Sean, who Kelly, Nicole’s best friend, ends up dating because Nicole is too shy to ask.

Project MUSE – Bleed (review)

Each additional chapter tells the inside story from the point of view of tsolarz character connected even if only tangentially to Nichole and through their stories we are able to see additional layers of Nichole Citation Stolarz, Laurie F.


While perhaps not a first purchase, the book does have broad young adult appeal. In result I started reading the book with the mindset that it will be awful!

Ginger Dubinsky, who has the chance to get back at Kelly for embarrassing her. This book was really good stlarz the very end. Each person has to suffer from some misfortune that has befallen them.

Almost as if she didn’t have the balls to get rid of a few. Lacking development, lacking a fast paced plot, lacking well just about everything. There’s also Derek LaPointe, who stolrz finds out that looks can’t get him the girl he wants, Mearl Aremian. No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Her works, which feature teenage protagonists, blend elements found in mystery and romance novels.

Laurie Faria Stolarz portraits today’s teenagers with so many flaws without even considering portraying their good traits as well.

Bleed by Laurie Faria Stolarz

About Laurie Faria Stolarz. It is so unlikely for a boyfriend of 8 months to screw bleed girlfriend’s lifelong best friend, without any real flirting or close contact with her up to that point.

Lots of characters and lots of things going on. This book is an nleed read and everyone can relate to at least one of the characters, if not more.

It’s somewhat of a dark dedication. Multiple narrates sometimes do work best for the story.
