    Forget the intriguing description of the book that you just read on the back of the novel, because I can pretty much sum it up in as little as twenty words, and I don t even get paid for this A girl with self esteem issues complains about boys, her big nose, dying a virgin and boys again Basically, it all comes down to boys Which, I guess, is pretty typical in a YA novel So, sounds good, right Not It shouldn t be called My Big Nose it should just be called Boys a Forget the intriguing description of the book that you just read on the back of the novel, because I can pretty much sum it up in as little as twenty words, and I don t even get paid for this A girl with self esteem issues complains about boys, her big nose, dying a virgin and boys again Basically, it all comes down to boys Which, I guess, is pretty typical in a YA novel So, sounds good, right Not It shouldn t be called My Big Nose Other Natural Disasters it should just be called Boys and I because of how obsessed the protagonist is with finding someone to like her Guys popped up here and there for no apparent reason rather, just to be fawned over by Jory In fact, this happens so many times that I got so annoyed because I didn t know who Jory would ultimately end up with It s like those cliched movies where all the people in the show are in love with one girl, or vice versa So unbelievable And it s just outright lame that one of the potential boyfriend turns out gay Seriously, what s up with that Not all good guys are gay Let s not play too much into these stereotypes, alright Truly underdeveloped story Actually, I wasn t even sure there was a story It was supposed to be about so many things self esteem, self image, friendship, love, and mother daughter relationships, but in the end, I was left with this annoying thought that the book failed to develop any of these issues First, self esteem Yeah, sure, make your protagonist super klutzy, to the extremes where I m wondering if a person like her even exists A ploy to try to get me to relate to Jory Hm Sure, I m clumsy as hell, but do I ruin every moment of my life I don t think so So this attributes to her self esteem, as well as the constant mention of her nose I don t even understand where everyone gets these ideas from I read teen magazines constantly and honestly, I have better things to notice than the size of my nose And there s friendship Did anyone hated Megan and Hannah well, less of Hannah as much as I did Please say yes Because they were just terrible Why not just title this book The Summer We All Wanted Boyfriends It s as simple as that The pretty and smart girl wants a boyfriend The sweet and safe girl wants a boyfriend And the girl considered just cute wants a boyfriend Bravo So they choose boys over friends Just typical novel behavior But what I found annoying was the lack of explanations for each friend If you re going to tell me about friendship problems, at least get a little in depth about the friends If you re going to convince me that Jory is all forgiving, at least let Megan and Hannah show some compassionate and redeeming behavior after nearly destroying their friendship So, love There s only one thing I can say What is the deal with Gideon He s like one of those characters who was just whiffed up with a potion by an amateur witch He s in a band Sure, play into every girl s fantasy about having a rock star boyfriend He makes jewelry Yup, might as well make him as sweet as my grandmother He loves his mom Right, go ahead and say that every teenage boy is ungrateful and does not show their affection for their parents He just made me cringe Really, almost everything about him made my raise my eyeballs Who knew so many characters could get on my nerves so much in one book

    Remember Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing Back then she was a cute young actress with a rather distinct nose that gave her a unique face In the 1990s she had a nose job that so altered her appearance that she was unrecognizable with the result that her career was arguably over I found a site with two of the most unflattering pictures of Grey I have ever seen, but they illustrate my point The change is so great that it s hard to say what the nose job actually accomplished because the before a Remember Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing Back then she was a cute young actress with a rather distinct nose that gave her a unique face In the 1990s she had a nose job that so altered her appearance that she was unrecognizable with the result that her career was arguably over I found a site with two of the most unflattering pictures of Grey I have ever seen, but they illustrate my point The change is so great that it s hard to say what the nose job actually accomplished because the before and after photos look like different people.While reading My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters 2009 by Sydney Salter, I kept thinking of one thing That thing was Jennifer Grey s nose job and how it totally changed her life in a not so great way.Jory Michaels desperately wants to be one of the beautiful people Or at least one of the smart people She d even settle for being an athletic person But Jory is none of those things Instead, she is the mediocre sheep in a family of beauty and talent All, Jory is certain, because of her big nose another outlier in a family with cute, small noses Like Jennifer Grey, Jory is convinced that a nose job will solve her problems and ultimately make her life better in every possible way She will be smarter and prettier, her family will appreciate her the way they worship her little brother, and her gorgeous crush will finally realize that she is perfect for him In other words, with a new nose, Jory will be as perfect as everyone else in her life.In order to ensure that she and Super Schnoz will part ways before the start of her senior year in high school, Jory take a job as a cake delivery person to fund her cosmetic surgery She also begins a nice nose notebook to be ready for the big day.It seems like everything is going Jory s way until an unlikely acquaintance, an unfortunate driving mishap or two, and other natural disasters force Jory to rethink everything she thought she knew about her nose, herself, and the perfect people she wanted so badly to emulate.Set in Reno, Nevada My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters offers an interesting perspective on cosmetic surgery Her hyperbolic fantasies about Super Schnoz and her new dream nose illustrate the irrational hopes Jory has pinned to the possibility of plastic surgery At the same time, as the story progresses Jory begins to realize that there might beto reinventing herself than restructuring her nose That thread, set against the backdrop of friend drama, and the social climbing ambitions of her ever dieting mother, gives this ostensibly quick read a fair amount of depth.I enjoyed a lot of this book At times the characters read younger than I would have expected for sixteen and seventeen year olds, but that likely saysabout who I was at that age than anything else Jory also reminded me a lot of Georgia Nicholson with her singular focus on boys but in a far less annoying way I also had issue with the way friendships were treated It must be the latin in me but I would have held a grudge a lot longer than Jory and other characters in books I ve read recently , but again that s probably just me.I loved Jory s humor throughout the narrative, which made her lack of self esteem at the beginning of the novel bearable As part of a mother daughter jewelery making duo, I also loved that beading came up in the story and was handled so realistically At the start of the novel I will admit that I was not sure I could like Jory as a character, but by the end of the book I not only liked her, I was proud of her My only disappointment was that the book didn t go on a little longer so I could spendtime with this new and improved heroine Beyond that, My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters is a clever, humorous book about how finding beauty sometimes involvesintrospection than anything else.You can find this review andon my blog Miss Print

    The book was very engaging and interesting to read I m not that into romance centric books, but this one wasn t all about romance, but finding the good in yourself when it seems like you have nothing The plot was fun to follow and even at the lowest points, the main character would always pick herself back up eventually With well written characters who integrate themselves with each other so well, I would certainly recommend this book for others to read, especially those who are a junior or s The book was very engaging and interesting to read I m not that into romance centric books, but this one wasn t all about romance, but finding the good in yourself when it seems like you have nothing The plot was fun to follow and even at the lowest points, the main character would always pick herself back up eventually With well written characters who integrate themselves with each other so well, I would certainly recommend this book for others to read, especially those who are a junior or senior in high school

    It s a really good book I usually don t write reviews but, it was really annoying that in every single chapter had her mention that she was going to die a virgin It gets annoying after a while.
