Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices - and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between.

Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed author Siobhan Vivian, a novel about the ways sex and love can change a girl.

Natalie Sterling wants to be in control. She wants her friends to be loyal. She wants her classmates to elect her student council president. She wants to find the right guy, not the usual jerk her school has to offer. She wants a good reputation, because she believes that will lead to good things.

But life is messy, and it's very hard to be in control of it. Not when there are freshman girls running around in a pack, trying to get senior guys to sleep with them. Not when your friends have secrets they're no longer comfortable sharing. Not when the boy you once dismissed ends up being the boy you want to sleep with yourself - but only in secret, with nobody ever finding out. Slut or saint? Winner or loser? Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices - and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between.

    Story
    "Painful"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This was a painful story to listen to. It felt so slow and painful, the narration was horrible (in my opinion). The narrators NORMAL voice was fine and pleasant but once she goes into the different characters they all sound like 1st graders, and not in an adorable funny kind of way! If there was something I could change I'd say the author should have put it aside for a month and read over it again, but with that being said-maybe if I would have read the book and not have listened to it, maybe just maybe that would have been better.


    Has Not That Kind of Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not from the genre. One bad book doesn't make the entire genre horrible


    Did Emma Meltzer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes you can hear the difference... but they are all made to sound like 1st graders.


    Was Not That Kind of Girl worth the listening time?

    No it was not


    Any additional comments?

    Nasal reading (I think it was done on purpose) The sound of the narrators voice when reading in her most natural voice is pleasant but once she is going into certain characters I just got turned off. Maybe she just made Autumn and Spencer sound ridiculous but that is what stuck out to me the most.
    ARGH I am so sad this book had so much potential ( or the narration had potential... I may give the book a read and try to not have the nasal 1st grader voices in my head)

    Story
    "Entertaining Listen"
    Would you listen to Not That Kind of Girl again? Why?

    This was an entertaining book which I would listen to again. At times I found the protagonist frustrating and self righteous, (which is kind of the point), but it all comes good in the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is my second Siobhan Vivian novel. I like her style of writing, her style is a little deeper than many YA books which are popular at present.


    What does Emma Meltzer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I may have struggled with this story if I was reading but it was a good listen and the narrator Emma Meltzer also helped to make it enjoyable, always setting the right tone.
