In one of the teenagers’ past, it’s mentioned how she used to know one of the guys in front of her as they were neighbors and used to play and eerily mentioned later how the same kid had said once “you’re the mother, I’m the father, and this is our bedroom But when “Robby” came out of jail Kelly lost interest in him.

This story was not narrated from 2 or 3 characters, it was narrated by stokarz characters. In her story, I think wow I can’t believe she actually likes this murderer, what a dumbass.

The Surveyor

The stories don’t wrap up with happy endings and the characters skipping off to a place of sunshine. The book makes it easy to relate to the characters. Plus, you never really came to understand some of the crazy stuff they did love. Who wants to read a crappy book with a crappy ending? I liked how each person had their individual stories that somehow intertwined but I was look stolxrz a part in the book a “chapter” when they would all be tied together directly, not indirectly.

I think I need a couple of days to process this book before I rate and review it. This series of ten interconnected short stories centers on various kinds of blood—the actual blood of losing your virginity, the blood that oozes from cutting yourself with a safety pin and forcing others to cut you as well, the blood that remains on the rock a boy uses to kill his dtolarz.

You submitted the following rating and review. Ten teenagers, who are lost in life and don’t know all about life. It features a number of blred, each chapter giving a new perspective character. Though there are some mild traces of humor along the way, the prevailing mood is one of edgy dissatisfaction and profound emotional pain, making the romantic nature of the final story, where the girl gets the guy who’s been dating her best friend who’s been cheating on him anyway, out of place in its cheeriness.


In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Ten teens, ten stories full of complications and problems that will leave the reader wondering what happens to the lives around them.

The characters and plot were interesting enough, but it just seemed like it was lacking. I felt like blfed book was pointless and that the writing was bad. Blded book is an excellent read and everyone can relate to at least one of the characters, if not more. Stolarz does an excellent job with letting you get to know the characters in such a short time period, and it doesn’t feel rushed or forced.

Project MUSE – Bleed (review)

Jan 26, Carla rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the characters is Nicole. While many of the characters get the revenge, love, or redemption they seek, the story overall seems like it could have had more than pages to make a blfed good full circle, rather than stoparz in a few characters who don’t add much to the story.

Like I said, it just jumped from one story to the next one with only really small and unimportant ‘connections’.

In this realistic story you will inhale the thoughts of many young teenagers and learn how friendships are burning and love is building.
