At the beginning there are a lot of names! The huge familie with their adorable nicknames for each other, the schoolmates, the friends... a lot of people! First it was a little bit difficult, but it was also very figurative and I liked the squences.

Norrie is the first girl, who makes her confessions. I am really curious what Almighty's plan is. Is she really upset and why and because of which girl? Or is there something different, that she will achieve with her idea?
____________

Ich muss sagen, am Anfang gab es ganz schön viele Namen, die man sich einprägen musste. Die doch recht große Familie mit ihren drolligen Spitznamen füreinander, die Schulkameraden und Freunde. Ziemlich viele Personen auf einen Haufen. Aber das machte es auch sehr lebhaft, bildlich und die Szenen haben mir gut gefallen.

Am Anfang die Einführung wie es zu den Bekenntnissen kam, war gut gestaltet und dann geht es ja auch sofort los. Norrie ist die erste der Sullivan-Mädchen, die ihre Bekenntnisse verfasst. Man ist auf jeden Fall gespannt, wer oder was die Großmutter so verärgert hat und was wirklich hinter ihrer Idee steckt.

Die Charaktere beginnt man nach und nach genauer zu erkennen. Sie sind sehr eigen, das macht aber auch ihren Reiz aus.

Irgendwie habe ich in dem buch ein Fantasy-Element erwartet, aber bei Lesen wird ja schnell klar, dass keines enthalten ist.
Das meine ich absolut nicht negativ, es ist mir nur aufgefallen.
Die Idee der Geschichte finde ich wunderbar und mit gefällt auch der Schreibstil sehr gut. Er ist flüssig und unterschwellig humorvoll und das gefällt mir sehr.
Ich habe immer noch ein paar Probleme mit den Namen, aber eigentlich wird es langsam besser. Norrie finde ich sehr sympathisch und Robbie auch :)
Die beiden passen ziemlich gut zusammen, auch wenn sie 8 jahre altersunterschied haben.
Ich bin wirklich gespannt, wie es weitergeht :D

I thought, this book involves any Fantasy stuff, but after reading the first 8 chapters, theres no doubt, that there isn't anything like this.
I don't think, that's negativ, i just wanted to mention it.
The idea of the story is gorgeous and i really like the writing style, which is so flowin' and humorous.
I still have a few problems, to remember an coordinate the characters and names, but it's getting better page to page.
Norrie, is just adorable and so is Robbie, he's cute :)
I like, that they fit together, even when Robbie is 8 years older!
I'm really excited, about what will happen next ;)

Wie kam es, dass Du Fantasy erwartet hast? Das war das Letzte, was ich nach Cover und Leseprobe erwartet bzw. was ich als Erstes sicher ausgeschlossen hätte.

Finally I can find some time to write my opinion if the first chapters too ;)

At the beginning I was a bit confused because I thought the story was in the past, maybe in the 50s. I don't know why I thought it, but nevertheless, I like this book ;).

I liked the story and the style and the characters are really nice. Somehow I can identify with Norrie and her problems. Her family ist very special anda bit strange I think. It's astonishing how easily the family decides it's all the girl's fault :D. Their mother seems to be very superficial and just thinks about how the familly looks for other rich people. And why do Norrie, Jane and Sassy call her Ginger?

When I read about Norries and Robins date I smiled. Obviouslic Norrie isn't he only girl who's in love with Robin ;). Maybe this will cause problems soon...

I'm loooking forward to reading the next part, so I'll stop now!

I finished the first chapters, too (ok, I read further more, because I thougt "Part one" would be the whole part of Norrie's story ^^).
I must say, I love it. The way it is written is fantastic, I can really feel with that teenager who is telling it to her grandmother. Especially these little comments about insulting words- great.

Well, the grandmother is really unsympatic. I hate her way to try controlling the lifes of all her family members. Why does she think she has the right for doing something like that? Because she has money? Even she must have recognized that she is frightened by her family. And now her plan to cut them of out of her will (I hope these were the right English words ^^)... but I'm a bit unsure if this is not just a plan to get information about her grandchildens lifes... well I will read it. ^^

I'm very curious if Norrie will fall in love with Robbie and what Sassy will narrate (I hope she will explain her life of immortality ^^).

Now, it's my turn to write down my thoughts of the first part.

I really can't say what I expected from this book. I have never read a book like this before.
So I just started reading.
First I had to grin because of this funny names. It took a while until I understand who is who, for example Daddy-o (ok, that was actually easy, but the o at the end confused me) or Ginger. But it isn‘t bad, I like this, because it‘s different.
Then I was a little bit confused, because Norrie was telling me what she had done. Then I understood that she was writing this letter to her grandmother Almighty. The story is written directly which I really love. I love the impartiality, it‘s different than the „Oh-my-god-a-long-time-ago-there-was-a-big-disaster-and-now-I-have-to-live-in-an-horrible-age-where-everybody-is-controlled“-mood. Well done!
Another point I noticed while reading: Norrie talked a lot of being new. And you can read it. I don‘t know how I can describe it. At the beginning her thoughts were a bit cursorily but then when she met Robbie, she changed.

I like the personalities. Each one of them has a different character and that‘s what I love. None of them is alike. A plus factor for me!

I must say the thing with the high society remember me on Gossip Girl - you know thie series? - but it‘s much more better than that. This story doesn‘t handle about taking drugs or comitting crimes but the normal life of an human (Sometimes it‘s normal - I wouldn‘t go to an course for reading fast or writing a blog about my „evil“ family).

And I‘m really curious because I want to know who‘s the bad girl.

Now I've finished the first part and what can I say? I love it! Besides all the names, that we're difficult to differentiate at the beginning, it was a smooth start into the Story. For me it is almost like reading a fairytale with the bad grandmother and the girls who made a mistake, that was so much of a dissapointment to Almighty,, that she wants to give all her money away if the betrayor isn't sayincg "I am guilty and sorry for what I did".

I don't know why the girls are supposed to be the guilty ones and have doubts that they are. I am pretty sure that another member of the family is responsible and I am very curios who that person is and what he did to make Almighty that angry.

I like Norrie. She is 17 and falling in love for the first time with a much older man. She is writing a letter to Almighty, telling her what she did. To me it doesn't sound that what she did was so terrible, but maybe I have to read more, to get to the center of the problem.

Now I want to know how the story continues. So back to the Book ;-)

I just finished the first part and I really like the book and the way it's written.

There are a lot of names at the beginning and I'm still not sure if I remember all of them, but at least I know the most important names now :)

I don't think that anyone is guilty, but it's very clever to say that someone is. I am sure Almighty gets a lot of new information from the girls.

I am curious how Norries story ends. I like Robbie, but I also like Brooks.

Finally I finished the first part and I really liked it. At the beginning there are a lot of people and names to remember, but that wasn't a big problem. I enjoyed reading about the Sullivan family and their friends. The family is quite crazy. Especially I don't really know, what to think from Almighty. On the one hand she is really strict and doesn't seem to be emotionally at all, but on the other hand I can't imagine her as a really bad character ;)

The three sisters Norrie, Sassy and Jane are so different and have all their good and bad sites ;) After the first part I think Norrie is my favorite character but maybe that will change while reading the part of Jane and Sassy ;)

I´ve really loved Norries story. Although I'm normally the to say that a difference of age more than 4 years is a no-go, I just love Norrie and Robbie. They're so sweet together and while reading I almost forgot that Robbie is 8 years older than Norrie.

And I really like the style of writing. It's so easy to follow and just takes you into the story. Also I like how we get to know about the feelings of Norrie. I could understand her very well and felt with her ;)

I'm really looking forward reading the next part. In fact I already read the first chapters about Jane and "myevilfamily.com" and it seems to get very interesting ;)

I really liked the first part! It's such a refreshing book, umcomplicated written but also not too easy so that's nice to read it!
Norrie and Robbie are really sweet together also I must say that the age difference really is huge! And I honestly doubted that any parent would have accepted such an old bf for their young doughter! :D
Anyway, I really like Norrie!
