Title: Are u 4 real?
Author: Sara Kadefors
Date published: May 14th, 2009
Kyla is exactly the kind of girl Alex could never talk to in real life. She's a gorgeous, outspoken L.A. girl who parties to forget about her absent father and depressed mother. He's a shy ballet dancer from outside San Francisco who's never been kissed. Luckily, when these sixteen-year-olds meet for the first time it's not in real life - it's in a chat room, where they can share their feelings of isolation and frustration away from the conformity-obsessed high school scene. Alex and Kyla quickly forge a friendship that's far from virtual - maybe they're even falling in love. But what happens when the soul mate you've never met moves from online to in person?
Sara Kadefors's wildly romantic, award-winning Swedish bestseller perfectly captures the universal angst of being a teenager, and the perhaps even more universal struggle to negotiate identity in a multi-platform world.
I really didn't have any feelings towards this book before i read it. i have not heard much about it, so i didn't really have any expectations.
I expected this book to be a sappy love story with the perfect ending. now don't get me wrong, it was kind of a love story, but it was so much more then that. It had love, heartbreak, betrayal, and so much more. One thing that i usually don't like about love stories is that they are very predictable. This was not very predictable. One moment your so happy for the characters, and the next your angry and confused. I loved it. I loved all the character. i think they all were a vital part of the story. My favorite was Alex (Sasha) though. He seemed like such a sweet guy!I also found out this was made into a movie but the movie is only in some other language. Darn! Overall, i really liked it and i totally recommend it. I give it 4/5 stars.
