For reasons that I shoul ot continu to fathom, Reconstructing Amelia ( or deconstructing, or at least, thi is what I would be doing) has been compared with that book and I am personally horrified, considering how much work clearly went into Gone Girl, and, well.2 and also 3 because they go very much hand in hand, to be touched upon as I outline the staggeringly and embarrassingly unlikely plot: When I first opened th book, having neve read the binding, but ordered it from anothe library because, stupid me, it was rated highly on GR ( you people have GOT to stop letting me down), I hought, Oh I 'm gon na like this.
We hav, in act, told over and over how swell Kate is and how amazing Amelia is, unquestionably, funnily enough, the whol boo is then dedicated to MUCHOS drama that Amelia was in over her pretty smart popular head in, with Mom ( who Amelia LOVES do n't make me wrong) having no clue.
hat highly unlikely and ill conceived plot actually pales in comparison to the crazy twists the book then takes.We go back in time through Amelia 's simpering and moronic prose and we fin the following: Her rude and bnoxious and self centered BFF ( who has been scripted by someone who either never met a teenager or only met ones via sitcoms for the girl speaks only in, like, super annoying acronyms which is SO like WTF and never ONCE did I, like, LOL or feel like his was, like, SO IT but rather, um, offensive to teens everywhere) has fallen totally in love with Ian who, because he author attempted to make British, does not say ONE SINGLE SENTENCE without 'bloody' 'mate' 'knickers' or some other means to prove to me that, yes, yes he really IS bloody British!
Despite Amelia being, in her nerdiness, way too cool or smart to want in on the nastiness, and despite having sworn to obnoxious BFF who would like, kill Amelia if she joined without her ( or herself since, we later and at a convenient time, learn back door like that BFF has a nasty habit of cutting herself), yea so despite all that she wishe she does believ in, and, though we are told every annoying detail of every character and their houghts in painstakingly detailed told not shown fashion, we reall are not at all privy to when it is, precisel, Amelia decides, you realize, she 's gay, and also fails to fall in love with the conveniently ambiguously named Dylan ( so as to mask this from her mom 's reconstructing- clever move, there) who has even less charm than the BFF and basically just moons around all day being dumb and is actually really mean to Amelia, but we just go with it, I kno, because Dylan is so awesome (???) and also beautiful ( ah, ok) .Anyway, we earn that Amelia also has picked up a cyber stalker named Ben who, despite being rather creepy and weird, has also anaged to make Amelia rather happy even though he strikes me as rather curt and strange.We also learn that Kate has some big secret as to who Amelia 's father is, and that Amelia is being harassed because of it.You know what?
