Bestseller Book Thwonk Actually a 3.5. This is a funny book and I liked the message. A.J.(main character) really annoyed me at how much she obsessed over Peter. She reminded me more of those middle school girls who are sure their crush are their soul-mate. Even though I seriously doubt there are many people who have meet their soul mate by age 12 (sorry if I sound cynical). Oddly enough, the reason I actually kinda liked this book was because A.J. was so wrong about everything. A lot of times you see movies and read books that show girls obsessing over boys they are convinced they are in love with when they don't actually know much about them. And then they end up happily ever after! The main character being so wrong usually tends to bother me. Again though, it showed the error of her ways. Showing that it was actually selfish of A.J. to wish for Peter to fall in love with her, as well as a shallow decision on her part. Cupid was also a very good character. Hilarious and brutaly honest with A.J. So, over all a worth while book.

  1. From joanbauer jbbiomlJuly 12, 1951 I was born at eleven A.M a most reasonable time, my mother often said, and when the nurse put me in my mother s arms for the first time I had both a nasty case of the hiccups and no discernible forehead it s since grown in I ve always believed in comic entrances.As I grew up in River Forest, Illinois, in the 1950 s, I seem to remember an early fascination with things that were funny I thought that people who could make other people laugh were terribly fortunate While my friends made their career plans, declaring they would become doctors, nurses, and lawyers, inwardly I knew that I wanted to be involved somehow in comedy This, however, was a difficult concept to get across in first grade But I had a mother with a great comic sense she was a high school English teacher and a grandmother who had been a funny professional storyteller, so I figured the right genes were in there somewhere, although I didn t always laugh at what my friends laughed at and they rarely giggled at my jokes That, and the fact that I was overweight and very tall, all made me feel quite different when I was growing up a bit like a musk ox at a tea party.My grandmother, who I called Nana, had the biggest influence on me creatively She taught me the importance of stories and laughter She never said, Now I m going to tell you a funny story, she d just tell a story, and the humor would naturally flow from it because of who she was and how she and her characters saw the world She showed me the difference between derisive laughter that hurts others and laughter that comes from the heart She showed me, too, that stories help us understand ourselves at a deep level She was a keen observer of people.I kept a diary as a child, was always penning stories and poems I played the flute heartily, taught myself the guitar, and wrote folk songs For years I wanted to be a comedienne, then a comedy writer I was a voracious reader, too, and can still remember the dark wood and the green leather chairs of the River Forest Public Library, can hear my shoes tapping on the stairs going down to the children s room, can feel my fingers sliding across rows and rows of books, looking through the card catalogs that seemed to house everything that anyone would ever need to know about in the entire world My parents divorced when I was eight years old, and I was devastated at the loss of my father I pull from that memory regularly as a writer Every book I have written so far has dealt with complex father issues My dad was an alcoholic and the pain of that was a shadow that followed me for years, but I ve learned things from that experience that have made me resilient I attempted to address those issues in Rules of the Road, and I took them even further in the companion book, Best Foot Forward The theme that I try to carry into all of my writing is this adversity, if we let it, will make us stronger.In my twenties, I worked in sales and advertising for the Chicago Tribune, McGraw Hill, WLS Radio, and Parade Magazine I met my husband Evan, a computer engineer, while I was on vacation Our courtship was simple He asked me to dance I said no We got married five months later in August, 1981 But I was not happy in advertising sales, and I had a few ulcers to prove it With Evan s loving support, I decided to try my hand at professional writing I wish I could say that everything started falling into place, but it was a slow, slow build writing newspaper and magazine articles for not much money My daughter Jean was born in July of 82 She had the soul of a writer even as a baby I can remember sitting at my typewriter I didn t have a computer back then writing away with Jean on a blanket on the floor next to me If my writing was bad that day, I d tear that page out of the typewriter and hand it to her Bad paper, I d say and Jean would r

  2. I actually wasn t expecting much from this book because I had seen so many bad reviews on it One of the things I did see as irritating was that A.J the main character can seem a bit too dramactic, but I loved the way the author depicted cupid The author also did an excellent job of desribing the the photos that A.J would take she s a photographer If they really existed I suspect I would like them very much Now for a quick summary A.J is infatuated with Peter Terris aka very popular guy and can t [...]



  3. Para empezar, esa portada es lo contrario a esta novela Esa portada indica que el libro es MUY infantil Y no es asi Es un libro juvenil, a secas Con muchos cliches, malentendidos, malas elecciones y un final infeliz No es un cuento para ni os, por mucho que el secundario principal sea Cupido y vaya vestido ridiculamente.Para continuar, hace muchos a os que lei este libro, y no, no me planteo releerlo, porque me decepcion tanto que vend mi ejemplar Fue un libro aburrido e ins pido con el que no c [...]



  4. Spoiler Alert Have you ever talked to a cupid before Well in this fairy tale fiction A.J main character finds a fake stuffed cupid what turns out to be a real cupid to grant her a wish with consequences I liked reading this book because I like reading love stories I really like how the author created the cupid s personality The author of Thwonk Joan Bauer is my favorite author, I like her books because she makes the novels interesting and has a problem but it gets solved with happiness at the en [...]


  5. I struggled to finish through the second half of the book It was too detail y and got boring I pretty much skimmed the last quarter of the book never reading this author again.I was assigned to write a book review so here is a detailed review Thwonk was probably exactly what I had expected from it The better, popular books are always checked out, and I usually end up borrowing manga, so I have to pick up some novels for good measure Since I m in a rush and none of the books I am looking for ar [...]


  6. Fun take on the be careful what you wish for theme When avid photographer and aspiring art student Allison Jean AJ McCreary is told she has one wish from a magical cupid figure she must choose between getting into the art school of her dreams, rescuing a sinking GPA, or having the the hunk that she s currently crushing on Against the advice of her miniature mentor AJ opts for romance and suddenly THWONK she s got the hottest guy at Benjamin Franklin High in loony tunes love with her But have you [...]


  7. I saw this through a post here on and checked it out from the library expecting a cute teen romance It wasn t, not for me The main caracter, A.J McCreary stumbles on a stuffed cupid toy which then turns into the real deal She s infatuated w a popular boy and thwonk , she gets what she wants despite the cupid s advice I prefer female charactes with a bit self assurance than A.J The story was not seamless enough for me to be a cute story Giving the cupid an actual name made me think it was perhap [...]


  8. So, I liked it, it s definitely worth reading I also love love it when a teenage heroine or any heroine doesn t need a man at the ending to make her something Although I really like the overall premise, my problems are these too much shrieking, shouting, and shrillness yet another one child family with self involved parents is it that hard to write a story about someone with a sibling jumpy narrative, I had to keep flipping pages to make sure I hadn t missed anything ridiculously expensive hobby [...]


  9. The main reason I read this is because I just wanted an easy YA read But I also figured I could count on Joan Bauer to serve up something intelligent than the general fare.I think this is Joan Bauer s only book that has a magical element, but I ended up really liking how she did it Jonathan the Cupid was the best character, really A.J s obsession with a boy obviously not worth it made me want to bang my head against a wall I was incredibly grateful that Joan Bauer didn t offer up another male c [...]


  10. So the book I read was all pink with a candy heart on the front I was unashamedly looking for a romantic summer read I usually shy away from purely chick lit fare but bucking the trend I grabbed this from the library cart shelf because it was pink and thought, it s just what I need And crossed my fingers it was clean It was very clean and surprisingly delightful It is the antidote for all these love crossed teenagers I know who have unrealistic crushes on boys they don t even know I have had th [...]


  11. Sweet I m liking Bauer than the Cabot books, so I might have to modify my rating of thoseor maybe not, but still, Bauer is pretty good I learned all kinds of things For example, I didn t know Cupids gave you a choice of three kinds of success, and we were just usually stupid enough to pick romance See teen love lit can change your world view.


  12. If your teenager hasn t found the author, Joan Bauer, I would rush out and get the first book for her or him As an older reader, I totally enjoy the two I have read so far, now to get another one.



  13. I can t believe that I gave a Joan Bauer book less than 4 stars In my understanding of the stars, that means that the book is still pretty good, but I usually finish a Bauer book feeling deeply satisfied, determined to inspire many to read it, and often needing than 5 stars Thwonk will have great appeal with most starry eyed 7th 9th grade girls who are hoping for that perfect guy to come sweep them off their feet And fortunately, like most novels by Joan Bauer, this one goes a little deeper tha [...]


  14. This book was full of surprises It is similar to other Joan Bauer books in that it follows a well fleshed out character with a passion for her trade in this case, her hobby The first person voice is distinctive, the supporting characters are interesting, and there is a definite emphasis on people who love and pursue their quirky jobs The surprises come with the introduction of fantasy elements and the choppy writing This was the second of Bauer s books and feels experimental It is inferior to he [...]

  19. This book is awesome I read some time ago and read it again It s still so awesome I loved how Joan Bauer described everything and how it felt like you could actually see the pictures that A.J Allison Jean McCreary took When I was reading the book, and it got to the part about what Jonathan the cupid could help her with, I just knew what it was going to be Artistic Maybe Academic Probably Romantic Of course No matter how studious a girl is, she would jump at the chance for someone to help her wit [...]

  22. This is a light, humorous read that I very much enjoyed With all the YA high school books out there, I m wary of how accurate the authors choose to portray that life there that I had to endure once and would never repeat again no matter how much I grew from the experience Bauer nailed certain aspects without being too uncomfortably detailed and still making you laugh about how pathetic teenagers and high school can be My second book to read by Bauer, and I loved it Perfectly along the lines of f [...]

  25. Listening to this book on audio did not detract at all from the enjoyment of reading it It was a fun story with a plot that was easy to follow, perfectly developed and perfectly resolved which makes for a satisfying read The romance was light and comedic, centered around the delightful absurdity of having your very own cupid to make cute boys fall in love with you A.J is an average high school girl, pretty but not very popular, the best photographer in the school, with allergies and an incredibl [...]
