After seeing this book trailer, I pretty much fell in love with the novel Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters.

The synopsis:

book cover
Kelsey Finkelstein is fourteen and FRUSTRATED. Every time she tries to live up to her awesome potential, her plans are foiled – by her impossible parents, her annoying little sister, and life in general. But with her first day of high school coming up, Kelsey is positive that things are going to change. Enlisting the help of her three best friends — sweet and quiet Em, theatrical Cass, and wild JoJo — Kelsey gets ready to rebrand herself and make the kind of mark she knows is her destiny.

Things start out great - her arch-nemesis has moved across the country, giving Kelsey the perfect opportunity to stand out on the soccer team and finally catch the eye of her long-time crush. But soon enough, an evil junior’s thirst for revenge, a mysterious photographer, and a series of other catastrophes make it clear that just because KELSEY has a plan for greatness… it doesn’t mean the rest of the world is in on it.

Kelsey’s hilarious commentary throughout her disastrous freshman year will have you laughing out loud—while being thankful that you’re not in her shoes, of course…
Fun, right?? For more info about Kelsey Finkelstein, Meredith Zeitlin and other fun FY&OUD-related things, check out http://www.kelseyfinkelstein.com/.

  1. While it doesn't seem like more sort of thing, I must admit that is one seriously creative video.

  2. I recently tried some of the YA books that I've been hearing so much about and they just got me depressed, as if I had relived the worst parts of high school with very few of the good parts. But this does sound like a cute book. Maybe I'll end up giving it a try.
