Review: Sticky Fingers by Niki Burham

Sticky Fingers
By: Niki Burnham
Reading Level: Young Adult
Bookwhisperer Rating: 4 Stars


That's how Jenna Kassarian sees herself. It's all about control—perfect grades, the ideal boyfriend, the best best friend. Then one night, and one party, shatters her perfect facade, and Jenna realizes that straight A's can't protect you in the real world.

Knowing one's self is one of lifes greatest accomplishments. Many spend their whole lives not knowing what they truely want to be happy. Jenna is not one of those people. She is smart, driven, and accomplished at only seventeen. Although, the one thing that she may not have planned on is how others decisions can also influence her future. Sticky Fingers is an entertaining read, as well as, a learning lesson for the younger generation. Sometimes even the people you think you can trust can not always be trusted. I was torn in rating this book. The first half of Sticky Fingers was slow paced and felt a little bogged down and struggling to maintain my attention. Although, the second half of the book picked up pace and intrigue leaving me entertained and attentive. In the end I am settling with a four rating I feel that it is a fair and honest rating to leave room for improvement, but also to congratulate a well writing book. Many things in life begin slow and soft, and end with a boom. This book is a particular example of this theory.
