    She's committing total social suicide. Much like Kanye West and Taylor Swift, or like Anthony Bourdain and Paula Deen, Jade (a Goth) and Mercedes (a "Barbie") are mortal enemies. Mercedes commands an army of Barbies, who delight in kicking Jade when she's down. I'm not a bad per...

    I'm so surprised that I'm writing a negative review of this book. When I first got Oh My Goth, I thought it'd be one of those books that I'd recommend to all my friends. The premise was great! I mean--here's to showing everyone is human on the inside and labels/appearances should not b...

    Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter First published 2006. Young adult twist on Its a Wonderful Life or Freaky Friday. The first half of the book sets up the lives of Jade, Mercedes and new school classmate Clarik. There is tragedy, friendships and deliberate cruelty. And then reality is ...

    Oh My Goth was oh my god bad. I slammed the book?twice?on the countertop while reading. I ranted to my brother how much I disliked the book. I fumed for a good 10 minutes afterwards. My ?dogma? of how MTV books could never go wrong has proven to be blasphemous with this book. ...

    If you couldn't tell that it was going to be bad by the title or the sh*tty tagline ("Kiss my hall pass"), don't worry. It's bad from the very first word written. Jade is a self-proclaimed "nonconformist" goth girl who is picked on by everyone else (except for the three only other g...

    When I first picked this book, I was so excited to read it because I thought it would be a cute story about a girl who's goth and probably judged for it, but in the end she has this deeper side and when people discover it, she ends up being liked, right? wrong. in the story we have ...

    Jade is so spoiled. If I had acted this way at her age, I'd have gotten my little ass kicked sky-high to Mars and back. Name choices are quirky at best. Clarick? Was that really necessary? Moral of story: all popular people are shallow and all nonconformists are deep thinkers - ...

    Totally mindless teen fic. Loved it, but it could never be called "good." It was good reading for the plane, kept my mind off the fact that I was 40,000 feet off the ground. That alone earns it 2 stars rather than the 1 it probably rightly deserves. :) ...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This is a story of two teens from opposite sides, a goth girl and the other a popular who struggles with family and high s...

    It was cute. For fans of Freaking Friday & A Christmas Carol! ...

    ?Fact is, everyone in the world is going to die at some point. No need to get attached.? Jade Leighton hasn?t had it easy, after the tragic loss of her mother. It?s haunted her, its left her feeling numb. She doesn?t want to feel, doesn?t want to attach herself to anyone...

    As much as I?d like to say that Oh My Goth would have helped me when I was younger, when I was in my ?goth? phase, I don?t know if I would have been ready to learn the lesson it?s trying to get across. Reading it now feels like a breath of fresh air and something that I can f...

    Jade Leighton had a hard life, and the time after that wasn?t spectacular either. With the death of her mother when she was little, she decided that not going to feel for anyone or anything anymore is the way to live. Then, she won?t be so devastated when they go. Because in her ex...

    As a child, Jade witnessed her mother's death in an horrific car accident. In an effort to protect herself, she decided to stay detached and numb herself from the world. A conversation with her dead mother and a bump on the head brings her into an alternate reality in order to help her...

    I?ve always known Showalter?s works are always from unique plots, those that are very unusual, but a book that features virtual game combined with Goths and Barbie clones? Way unusual, and very intriguing. It?s a story that presents the reader how some people would want to ...

    Eventhough this book was pure fluff I still really enjoyed it. A really light, easy read, with a simple plot and some likeable characters. This sends a good message to teens that it's what's on the inside that counts not the outside. My reason for removing a star was that I found in so...

    16 year old me would have loved reading this book. Hell, I still enjoyed it immensely, but I would have really loved it while in high school. It was a sweet and sad story, cheesy at times, funny sometimes, and lots of lessons to be learned from it. When I saw the title, I knew it was e...

    Wow. I recently unpublished one of my books, & I'm in the process of rewriting it. I just wasn't happy with it, and I felt like those specific characters deserved better than I gave them. Plus, readers didn't respond to it, and it just generally flopped. So this idea is intriguing ...

    DNF - Did not finish. I was really excited about this book, but it fell really flat for what I was hoping for. I might pick it up again and try to finish it, but for now it's a DNF with no rating. I will recommend it because I can think of a number of people who would be interested ...

    Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well when I started this one I thought I was going to hit it right off and it was going to be the love of my life this year. But sadly here I am writing a DNF failed read review for it. I am very sad right now. Do I Recommend this b...

    Oh My Goth is great in the sense of sharing a message of loving who you are. The main character Jade has always opposed social norms and, because of that has many struggles at school. She is often bullied but she refuses to change herself just because other people don't like it, which ...

    An interesting read. Jade Leigh is a girl in high school who hates conformity. In one of her classes she gets kicked out and sent to the principles office. While waiting for the principle, there is a guy sitting outside the office, Clarik. She thinks he's hot. She is goth, though, so s...

    This book is extremely cliché. I feel like there was no actual meaning to this book, about 20 pages in, I was ready for it to be over. The story of this book is that Jade and her enemy Mercedes are hit by a car and go into this sort of freaky Friday reality. In this reality Jade, o...

    the kind of novel all teenagers should read. Why? Because being fashionable, being popular can change in a moment, being your self will not. You will be generous, funny, obnoxious, lovely, kind, hurtful all on your own, so why homologate yourself with a dress code that proclaims to t...

    thought it had a good plot and was great in making it relate to our world.I loved the poems the author put in on every chapter. like most of my books I'm left wanting more not becuase the book wasn't good but becuase I couldn't let go of the book. I read this book in a day. it's bas...

    I'm so surprised that I'm writing a negative review of this book. When I first got Oh My Goth, I thought it'd be one of those books that I'd recommend to all my friends. The premise was great! I mean--here's to showing everyone is human on the inside and labels/appearances should not b...

    Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter First published 2006. Young adult twist on Its a Wonderful Life or Freaky Friday. The first half of the book sets up the lives of Jade, Mercedes and new school classmate Clarik. There is tragedy, friendships and deliberate cruelty. And then reality is ...

    Oh My Goth was oh my god bad. I slammed the book?twice?on the countertop while reading. I ranted to my brother how much I disliked the book. I fumed for a good 10 minutes afterwards. My ?dogma? of how MTV books could never go wrong has proven to be blasphemous with this book. ...

    When I first picked this book, I was so excited to read it because I thought it would be a cute story about a girl who's goth and probably judged for it, but in the end she has this deeper side and when people discover it, she ends up being liked, right? wrong. in the story we have ...

    Jade is so spoiled. If I had acted this way at her age, I'd have gotten my little ass kicked sky-high to Mars and back. Name choices are quirky at best. Clarick? Was that really necessary? Moral of story: all popular people are shallow and all nonconformists are deep thinkers - ...

    Totally mindless teen fic. Loved it, but it could never be called "good." It was good reading for the plane, kept my mind off the fact that I was 40,000 feet off the ground. That alone earns it 2 stars rather than the 1 it probably rightly deserves. :) ...

    ?Fact is, everyone in the world is going to die at some point. No need to get attached.? Jade Leighton hasn?t had it easy, after the tragic loss of her mother. It?s haunted her, its left her feeling numb. She doesn?t want to feel, doesn?t want to attach herself to anyone...

    As much as I?d like to say that Oh My Goth would have helped me when I was younger, when I was in my ?goth? phase, I don?t know if I would have been ready to learn the lesson it?s trying to get across. Reading it now feels like a breath of fresh air and something that I can f...

    Jade Leighton had a hard life, and the time after that wasn?t spectacular either. With the death of her mother when she was little, she decided that not going to feel for anyone or anything anymore is the way to live. Then, she won?t be so devastated when they go. Because in her ex...

    As a child, Jade witnessed her mother's death in an horrific car accident. In an effort to protect herself, she decided to stay detached and numb herself from the world. A conversation with her dead mother and a bump on the head brings her into an alternate reality in order to help her...

    I?ve always known Showalter?s works are always from unique plots, those that are very unusual, but a book that features virtual game combined with Goths and Barbie clones? Way unusual, and very intriguing. It?s a story that presents the reader how some people would want to ...

    Eventhough this book was pure fluff I still really enjoyed it. A really light, easy read, with a simple plot and some likeable characters. This sends a good message to teens that it's what's on the inside that counts not the outside. My reason for removing a star was that I found in so...

    16 year old me would have loved reading this book. Hell, I still enjoyed it immensely, but I would have really loved it while in high school. It was a sweet and sad story, cheesy at times, funny sometimes, and lots of lessons to be learned from it. When I saw the title, I knew it was e...

    Wow. I recently unpublished one of my books, & I'm in the process of rewriting it. I just wasn't happy with it, and I felt like those specific characters deserved better than I gave them. Plus, readers didn't respond to it, and it just generally flopped. So this idea is intriguing ...

    An interesting read. Jade Leigh is a girl in high school who hates conformity. In one of her classes she gets kicked out and sent to the principles office. While waiting for the principle, there is a guy sitting outside the office, Clarik. She thinks he's hot. She is goth, though, so s...
