    This book was nothing like what I expected. After reading the blurb on the back of the books (which is different to above) I was expecting perhaps a bit of a silly Dad playing a joke on his daughter, and seeing Kass embarrass herself hugely as she went through the stages of the X Factor auditions. What I got was much better. This is a hard-hitting emotional novel that deals with mental illness, adultery, friendship, crime, and the right to say no. So good, I read it in a day.This is not to say t [...]

    Don't be fooled by the cover. It really is good and isn't chick lit! This book was quite funny.

    Didn't finish this book. I tried!! The first 50 wasn't doing anything for me but I gave it another 50 because I was told it would approach more emotional issues but yeah, I gave up after 100. I ended up going to the back and skimming the end to see what happens (I haven't done that for a book for like years) and I'm not too upset about marking this as DNF. The main reason I couldn't get into the book is that it felt too "young" for me. The instant messaging with chatspeak made me extremely irrit [...]

    I am really glad I got this book! I got it a while ago, and was pleased. Although it has a bit of swearing, and a "Adult Page", it was a really good read. I would recommend it to anyone who has read a Georgia Nicholson (I think thats how you spell it ;) ) book.

    By reading this review on GR I'm sorry to say you are missing out on two GIF's Other formatting may have also been lost during copying & pasting to so you're welcome to check this out @ Amy BookwormKass (the girl, not Cas) is rather special. Yeah, she's the main character and (talking about teen voices, ALERT!) her voice is absolutely realistic. I could ring her up right now & talk to her I mean, she seemed that real. All the character voices were realistic in this book (teen perspectiv [...]

    The synopsis to this book kind of confused me. I mean, the first parts make it sound like a comedy book, but the last part sounds like a drama. I decided to read this book because it looked alright to me, but I wasn't quite sure what to make of it before. I'm so thankful that I did, or else I wouldn't have read this really good novel.Reasons to Read:1.Kass's Narration: The way the protagonist narrated the entire book reminded me a lot of Greg from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, in the way that [...]

    What is it with all of the amazing debuts this year? Emily really has something special with her debut Young Adult novel. I feel as though there have been a lot of books that I have read this year that I really liked, but this is easily one of the few that I truly loved. What I thought was going to be a pretty simple story, ended up being so much deeper and emotional that I would of ever imagined it being. I was beyond impressed with what Emily was able to accomplish.I really feel like this stor [...]

    I actually quite liked this book. I give out 2-star and 3-star ratings literallyallthe time, but this one made it to 4 :)Where do I start with this? There were parts of the book I didn't like. But I think I'm a bit of a "hopeless romantic" (I'm not sure if I'm using this correctly), so I dislike reading books about people receiving very harsh treatment or anything like that. Let me elaborate: when a character gets treated unfairly by another, i.e. bullying, child abuse, harassment, etc it makes [...]

    Kass Kennedy has a unique, slightly over-the-top personality. While interacting with the real world around her, she plays game shows and holds imaginary conversations with Simon Cowell in her mind. It's easy to tell when she's doing this, as the worlds are in italics. Her whole world is one big drama. Her dad is bipolar, and when he's not down in the dumps he's set on making Kass a star. Her mom is never there for her, her kid brother won't help her (he's too busy making money through not-very-l [...]

    At first, Kass's voice seemed forced to me. There is immense pressure on authors to have an idiosyncratic protagonist, and I was sure this was the product. But gradually Kass's voice slows down in the wacky metaphor department, a few of the more consistent stylistic features smooth out and some truly funny observations pop up.The development of Kass's relationships with the secondary characters is really what drives Girl Out Loud: her and Raff's relationship progress can be predicted before the [...]

    Don't let the bright pink cover or the misleading name turn you off this book. It looks like it's going to be a frothing book aimed at tweens but so much more is dealt with here than a girl trying to get on a talent tv show as the name suggests. Kassidy is living a normal, boring teenage life when one thing leads to another and her whole life turns upside down. Most of her problems stem from her undiagnosed Bipolar father who is obsessed with making her a star. Due to Kass' reluctance to admit t [...]

    Girl, Aloud is about Kass, an average teenager with a dysfunctional family. Her father has decided she has to audition for The X-Factor - problem is, Kass can't sing, and she really doesn't want to be a star. But when her dad decides to do something, it must be done - and he's not giving up on the idea of his daughter being a star - so now they're spending every spare moment practising for the audition, while Kass tries to figure out a way to get out of it. Then, when a boy who Kass's friend Cha [...]

    First, I would like to say that I received this book as part of the First Reads program. If I hadn't, truthfully I probably would have put it down after the first 50 pages. I just was not hooked on this book right away, and for me, my valuable reading time is often better spent on books that hook me right off the bat.However, after making it through to the end of the novel, I have to say that overall I did like it, I just didn't love it. I think this comes from the fact that it was most definit [...]

    Girl, Aloud really is a cross between the Diary of Adrian Mole and a Jodi Picoult, balancing a level of everyday humour with emotional realism to create an emotive flash-back producing story about a normal teen-age girl.Parts of this story made me want to cry, the horrid flash-backs to teen-age fights with best friends, the pain and suffering, the embarrassment that only parents can put you through at that age. Other parts just made me want to laugh, with happy flash-backs to teen-age giggling a [...]

    Kass Kennedy struggles to keep her family on a level playing field, not an easy task given her father’s manic-depressive behavior. She, her mother, and her younger, brother tiptoe around him and each other, ignoring behavior, or quietly trying to be soothing, or, in Kass’ case, giving in to her father’s efforts to make her a singing star. She also is at odds with her two best friends, with whom she’s been part of a threesome forever, over a boy that two of them like. Like many teens, she [...]

    Whoa! If you want to start reading a amazing novel, Girl Out Loud is the book for you!The characters: Kassidy or Kass as she is usually called, is a fun girl. She is about 15 or 16 but thinks that she's 24. She was very mature and handled a lot of tough situations really good. She was always there if her friends needed her but in this book they get into a few little fights and that kind of breaks up their terrific trio. I felt that sometimes she could be kind of childish and I wanted to slap her [...]

    4.5 StarsBoth the cover and blurb of Girl, Aloud do this book a disservice. It’s a really wonderful, desperately sad story of a girl who is forced to “perform” because her father is convinced she is special, when all Kass wants to be is ordinary.Being at the centre of her Dad’s moods means that Kass has tried everything on his quest to prove she isn’t just any girl. Musical instruments, world chess champion, actress – and each time Kass fails her Dad goes into a Down period. When he [...]

    OK, so this book isn't the best book I've ever read. I liked the mini-game show/conversations with Simon. I don't know what Kass hoped to find out from meeting him in person. Out of curiosity, how did she pass the first stage of X Factor if she was 'so horrible'? I think she should've told her dad, maybe not fro his approval but just for his pride in Kass. Is that so bad?Other Cassmember him? Well, he was really pushy. I don't really like him. I don't see what the major crush was. Especially, wh [...]

    I had a bit of a problem getting into the book. Mostly, this was due to the discrepancy between the cover and blurb and the actual story of the book. This is indeed a book that you shouldn't judge by its covers. When I looked at it, it seemed like a fun, light read. What I got when I opened it and started reading was a powerful, thought-provoking, great YA novel. The topic the novel deals with is far from easy, in fact, it's difficult even for the grown-ups to cope with (as is obvious from the w [...]

    Kass is a girl with problems. Not only does her younger brother seem hell-bent on a life of petty crime but her mum is pre-occupied with work and her dad has decided she's the next Leona Lewis. Unstable at the best of times, it isn't long before he's pinned his hopes and happiness on Kass's dubious singing ability and the pressure begins to tell. Soon her friendships and love life are dangling by a thread, along with her sanity.I really felt for Kass in this book and my heart ached over the situ [...]

    Kassidy is a 15 year old in Australia with an emotionally absent mother, a deliquent younger brother, and a mentally fragile father. Kassidy can't sing, but her father is obsessed with getting her on a reality TV music competition, which her mother enables and her little brother ignores. Add frenemy issues, a parental affair, the usual school drama, and a cute boy who pushes her too far sexually, and you've got one exhausting novel on your hands. While the focus on mental illness (father is clea [...]

    Girl, Aloud is the story of a girl finding her voice that’s at once painfully embarrassing and incredibly sad.Emily Gale wrote a brilliant cast of characters in Girl, Aloud. Kass is strong, funny, and even though nothing ever goes right for her, I didn’t want to pity her. I felt that she would work things out. Raff is funny and strange, like all little brothers, and even a little sweet. And Char and Izzy are great friends with distinctive character traits that set them apart. One of the elem [...]

    This book was really good and it contains a very important message. Kass is a girl who wanted to be a normal teenager, but her dad ruins it by wanting her to sing on the X Factor. She has to practice singing every day, but that doesn't help her. Her voice still sounds like a duck getting choked. Then she founds she and her friend both likes the same boy and a rival starts, and the worse thing is, her other friend is siding with her friend! On the way, she learns more about friendship, crushes, b [...]

    Kass Kennedy just wanted to be normal. She just wanted to fit in, have friends and be completely average. Kass's father and mother don't exactly help her be normal though They make Kass change in all sorts of ways. After all sorts of changes in her family, Kass vigorously tries to fix all the problems in her life, but Kass finds that that's not exactly how things always work out. This is a story of romance, betrayal, and the importance of family.

    I won a copy of this book on .The story starts off at a rapid pace and it took me a few chapters to settle into it. I really liked the mix of humour and life dramas that surrounded the main character, her friends and family. The main character, Kass, is very likeable and you can really feel her emotions through the story. Overall a very enjoyable and easy read. The cover is very eye catching and I would definitely have picked this book up for the cover alone.

    I won this from a contest on . It took me awhile to get around to it, but I picked it up the other day because it seemed like a quick read and I wanted a break from homework.It was pretty good -- I had trouble connecting with the main character, but I felt like the book accurately portrayed her struggle with a father who has a mental illness, and even her character reflected that. She was a little self-involved, not the best friend, but she tried. Overall, a pretty good book.

    This was not at all what I expected I thought that Kass would audition the first time her dad told her to But I was wrong and I also thought that it would turn out she was an amazing singer and stuff I also thought she'd end up with Cass but you know I'm also wrong I loved the ending though

    This looks like it's going to be frothy and fun - but Emily Gale does so much more than the cover suggests. Kass's dad is desperate for her to shine, and his moods are so volatile that no one can contradict him. Emily Gale's characters are very real, and yet the twists in the plot always surprise. And she's got a great way with metaphor as well.

    For my full review please visit: shadowsireview/20I really liked this book despite the misleading blurb. It a thought provoking novel that is well worth a read.

    Kass Kennedy has no talent and can't sing, but her manic-depressive dad is determined that she audition for The X Factor. Her absent mom does not defend her and her best friends drop her. The style of writing in the beginning is confusing and slow, but the angst Kass feels is very real.
