    When the author of the worst series you ever read announces that she's rewrote her first YA novel. I'm totally like: Honestly, after reading the Everlife series, I cannot imagine anything worse. And then I read the reviews for Oh My Goth. Aka I am so psyched for this rewrite. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    ?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 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...

    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 I recently unpublished one of my books, & I'm in the process of rewriting it.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 ...

    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...

    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...

    No... just no. This book is not a good portrayal of goth culture or nonconformity. It made outcasts out to be a bunch of snobby dicks and popular kids all airheaded bullies. Jade was so whiny and full of herself! She had no redeeming quality as a character whatsoever and neither did...

    Jade, Mercedes, and Clarik This story is about the main character Jade, an outcast at school and society for being different from most. Her nemesis is Mercedes who we later learn is her ex-stepsister (Jade's dad and Mercedes' mom get it on). The love interest is Clarik, a compassionat...

    "People are the most difficult thing in the world to change." Twelve years ago this title was released and it was her first ever ya novel. I remember reading that back in the day and I enjoyed it but it was definitely time for an upgrade. Oh My Goth is an odd mix of Mean Girls a...

    I read this book when it was originally published back in 2006, in a different life where my dad and husband were still alive. I know I enjoyed it, but I don?t remember specifics. When I found out it had been updated and published again I had to get it! This book is utterly charm...

    This book was a good read, the story was really sweet. I was pretty skeptical of this book based on the description, but I really enjoyed the story line. I loved how this book explored the character's emotions thoroughly. The best part of this book is the way it inspires the reader t...

    Didn't start out really loving it, but when Jade went to the "other" world, things got a lot better! She really grew as a person and I loved seeing her journey to learn to appreciate what she had. The last 150 pages or so were really good for me and even made me a bit emotional! Heartf...

    This book had all kinds of hidden message the hope for unity, love, and peace between diffrent clicks in society. I'm hoping that middle school girls and high school girls will take the time to read this book. This is what girls need to hear at that age. I wish I had this book when I w...

    Oh my Goth! I finally got to read Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter and I was not disappointed. This is actually a re-release with some updates to it and I never had the opportunity to read the original. So, this book may not be entirely new to some readers, however, knowing Gena, I'm posit...

    This revamped version of the story was so freaking amazing! There were a few things the same, like the characters, but we learned more about them, and that the world changes and everybody but the outsiders are Goth, but other than that, this book is totally different! Loved it, it was ...

    This book was great and had a great message. It touched on grief, depression and mental disorders. The main character, Jade, has to work through all of her issues of the loss of her mother and that all your reactions can have horrible outcomes. It really touches on bullying and how you...

    wellllllll it's more like a 2.5 or .75 the book started to be good ones she is in the Goth world and knowing she's about to come back, which means 100-120 pages before the end.... before this i was bored and not really drown into it ...

    This was a book I didn?t know I needed. It?s light, it?s fun, and it can really hit deep. I cried in a few places and I felt good while reading a lot of places. If you?re hesitant to read this because it?s YA or not something that?s often in your wheelhouse, don?t be. ...

    I had read this book in the older version but picked this up anyway on my kindle. This book rocks! You learn along with Jade what has happened and how she and her "friend" need to change. Definitely recommend this book! ...

    Love stories like this. Were characters go to alternate worlds or their worlds flip in a blink of an eye. ...

    I really really enjoyed this book and liked how the character of Jade changed and realized that she took everything for grantedand it's definitely a quick read that can be finished the same day. ...

    Oh My What an uplifting story. This should be required reading for teens. Appreciate what you have, or lose it. A heartwarming, wonderful reminder for everyone. ...

    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...

    ?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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    No... just no. This book is not a good portrayal of goth culture or nonconformity. It made outcasts out to be a bunch of snobby dicks and popular kids all airheaded bullies. Jade was so whiny and full of herself! She had no redeeming quality as a character whatsoever and neither did...

    Jade, Mercedes, and Clarik This story is about the main character Jade, an outcast at school and society for being different from most. Her nemesis is Mercedes who we later learn is her ex-stepsister (Jade's dad and Mercedes' mom get it on). The love interest is Clarik, a compassionat...

    "People are the most difficult thing in the world to change." Twelve years ago this title was released and it was her first ever ya novel. I remember reading that back in the day and I enjoyed it but it was definitely time for an upgrade. Oh My Goth is an odd mix of Mean Girls a...

    I read this book when it was originally published back in 2006, in a different life where my dad and husband were still alive. I know I enjoyed it, but I don?t remember specifics. When I found out it had been updated and published again I had to get it! This book is utterly charm...

    Didn't start out really loving it, but when Jade went to the "other" world, things got a lot better! She really grew as a person and I loved seeing her journey to learn to appreciate what she had. The last 150 pages or so were really good for me and even made me a bit emotional! Heartf...

    This book had all kinds of hidden message the hope for unity, love, and peace between diffrent clicks in society. I'm hoping that middle school girls and high school girls will take the time to read this book. This is what girls need to hear at that age. I wish I had this book when I w...

    Oh my Goth! I finally got to read Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter and I was not disappointed. This is actually a re-release with some updates to it and I never had the opportunity to read the original. So, this book may not be entirely new to some readers, however, knowing Gena, I'm posit...

    This revamped version of the story was so freaking amazing! There were a few things the same, like the characters, but we learned more about them, and that the world changes and everybody but the outsiders are Goth, but other than that, this book is totally different! Loved it, it was ...

    This book was great and had a great message. It touched on grief, depression and mental disorders. The main character, Jade, has to work through all of her issues of the loss of her mother and that all your reactions can have horrible outcomes. It really touches on bullying and how you...

    wellllllll it's more like a 2.5 or .75 the book started to be good ones she is in the Goth world and knowing she's about to come back, which means 100-120 pages before the end.... before this i was bored and not really drown into it ...

    This was a book I didn?t know I needed. It?s light, it?s fun, and it can really hit deep. I cried in a few places and I felt good while reading a lot of places. If you?re hesitant to read this because it?s YA or not something that?s often in your wheelhouse, don?t be. ...

    I had read this book in the older version but picked this up anyway on my kindle. This book rocks! You learn along with Jade what has happened and how she and her "friend" need to change. Definitely recommend this book! ...

    Love stories like this. Were characters go to alternate worlds or their worlds flip in a blink of an eye. ...

    I really really enjoyed this book and liked how the character of Jade changed and realized that she took everything for grantedand it's definitely a quick read that can be finished the same day. ...

    Oh My What an uplifting story. This should be required reading for teens. Appreciate what you have, or lose it. A heartwarming, wonderful reminder for everyone. ...

    Jade, Mercedes, and Clarik This story is about the main character Jade, an outcast at school and society for being different from most. Her nemesis is Mercedes who we later learn is her ex-stepsister (Jade's dad and Mercedes' mom get it on). The love interest is Clarik, a compassionat...

    "People are the most difficult thing in the world to change." Twelve years ago this title was released and it was her first ever ya novel. I remember reading that back in the day and I enjoyed it but it was definitely time for an upgrade. Oh My Goth is an odd mix of Mean Girls a...

    I read this book when it was originally published back in 2006, in a different life where my dad and husband were still alive. I know I enjoyed it, but I don?t remember specifics. When I found out it had been updated and published again I had to get it! This book is utterly charm...

    This book was a good read, the story was really sweet. I was pretty skeptical of this book based on the description, but I really enjoyed the story line. I loved how this book explored the character's emotions thoroughly. The best part of this book is the way it inspires the reader t...

    Didn't start out really loving it, but when Jade went to the "other" world, things got a lot better! She really grew as a person and I loved seeing her journey to learn to appreciate what she had. The last 150 pages or so were really good for me and even made me a bit emotional! Heartf...

    This book had all kinds of hidden message the hope for unity, love, and peace between diffrent clicks in society. I'm hoping that middle school girls and high school girls will take the time to read this book. This is what girls need to hear at that age. I wish I had this book when I w...

    Oh my Goth! I finally got to read Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter and I was not disappointed. This is actually a re-release with some updates to it and I never had the opportunity to read the original. So, this book may not be entirely new to some readers, however, knowing Gena, I'm posit...

    This revamped version of the story was so freaking amazing! There were a few things the same, like the characters, but we learned more about them, and that the world changes and everybody but the outsiders are Goth, but other than that, this book is totally different! Loved it, it was ...

    This book was great and had a great message. It touched on grief, depression and mental disorders. The main character, Jade, has to work through all of her issues of the loss of her mother and that all your reactions can have horrible outcomes. It really touches on bullying and how you...

    wellllllll it's more like a 2.5 or .75 the book started to be good ones she is in the Goth world and knowing she's about to come back, which means 100-120 pages before the end.... before this i was bored and not really drown into it ...

    This was a book I didn?t know I needed. It?s light, it?s fun, and it can really hit deep. I cried in a few places and I felt good while reading a lot of places. If you?re hesitant to read this because it?s YA or not something that?s often in your wheelhouse, don?t be. ...

    I had read this book in the older version but picked this up anyway on my kindle. This book rocks! You learn along with Jade what has happened and how she and her "friend" need to change. Definitely recommend this book! ...

    When the author of the worst series you ever read announces that she's rewrote her first YA novel. I'm totally like: Honestly, after reading the Everlife series, I cannot imagine anything worse. And then I read the reviews for Oh My Goth. Aka I am so psyched for this rewrite. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    ?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 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...

    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 ...

    When the author of the worst series you ever read announces that she's rewrote her first YA novel. I'm totally like: Honestly, after reading the Everlife series, I cannot imagine anything worse. And then I read the reviews for Oh My Goth. Aka I am so psyched for this rewrite. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    ?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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    No... just no. This book is not a good portrayal of goth culture or nonconformity. It made outcasts out to be a bunch of snobby dicks and popular kids all airheaded bullies. Jade was so whiny and full of herself! She had no redeeming quality as a character whatsoever and neither did...

    Jade, Mercedes, and Clarik This story is about the main character Jade, an outcast at school and society for being different from most. Her nemesis is Mercedes who we later learn is her ex-stepsister (Jade's dad and Mercedes' mom get it on). The love interest is Clarik, a compassionat...

    I read this book when it was originally published back in 2006, in a different life where my dad and husband were still alive. I know I enjoyed it, but I don?t remember specifics. When I found out it had been updated and published again I had to get it! This book is utterly charm...

    Didn't start out really loving it, but when Jade went to the "other" world, things got a lot better! She really grew as a person and I loved seeing her journey to learn to appreciate what she had. The last 150 pages or so were really good for me and even made me a bit emotional! Heartf...

    This book had all kinds of hidden message the hope for unity, love, and peace between diffrent clicks in society. I'm hoping that middle school girls and high school girls will take the time to read this book. This is what girls need to hear at that age. I wish I had this book when I w...

    Oh my Goth! I finally got to read Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter and I was not disappointed. This is actually a re-release with some updates to it and I never had the opportunity to read the original. So, this book may not be entirely new to some readers, however, knowing Gena, I'm posit...

    This revamped version of the story was so freaking amazing! There were a few things the same, like the characters, but we learned more about them, and that the world changes and everybody but the outsiders are Goth, but other than that, this book is totally different! Loved it, it was ...

    This book was great and had a great message. It touched on grief, depression and mental disorders. The main character, Jade, has to work through all of her issues of the loss of her mother and that all your reactions can have horrible outcomes. It really touches on bullying and how you...

    wellllllll it's more like a 2.5 or .75 the book started to be good ones she is in the Goth world and knowing she's about to come back, which means 100-120 pages before the end.... before this i was bored and not really drown into it ...

    This was a book I didn?t know I needed. It?s light, it?s fun, and it can really hit deep. I cried in a few places and I felt good while reading a lot of places. If you?re hesitant to read this because it?s YA or not something that?s often in your wheelhouse, don?t be. ...

    I had read this book in the older version but picked this up anyway on my kindle. This book rocks! You learn along with Jade what has happened and how she and her "friend" need to change. Definitely recommend this book! ...

    Love stories like this. Were characters go to alternate worlds or their worlds flip in a blink of an eye. ...

    I really really enjoyed this book and liked how the character of Jade changed and realized that she took everything for grantedand it's definitely a quick read that can be finished the same day. ...
