    3. Kirsten Smith s newest novel TRINKETS is a humorous read filled with high school drama, shoplifting, and above all, friendship.Moe is a 16 year old troublemaker that, to no one s surprise, has to attend weekly Shoplifters Anonymous meetings The dulls ville gatherings start to become a bit interesting when it girl Tabitha and goody two shoes Elodie show up Who would have thought these seemingly perfect girls would have such sticky fingers What starts off as acquaintanceship soon turns to friends [...]

    6. This book was interesting the premise is unlike anything I have ever seen before I think the author definitely took a risk in writing this book, but I think it payed off This book is a multi perspective story that follows an unlikely friendship that develops through a Shoplifters Anonymous support group I liked that this book was multi perspective The story was graceful and flowed nicely Seeing the story through different points of view helped the reader draw similarities and differences between [...]

    7. I won this book in a give away so I didn t have the chance to take a peak inside to see if this book would be a perfect match for me or not.I was hoping it would be detailed and little bit complicated in the writing style The story is very short and to the point and written perfectly for people in the 13 to 14 age group.The story is told from three perspectives of three very different teenage girls in high school I felt at times that the cliques were sort of cliche and, in my personal experien [...]

    8. Told from the varying points of view of three high school girls who couldn t have less in common, this title is sure to be snapped up by teen readers who will see parts of themselves reflected in Tabitha, Elodie, and Moe The three meet at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting after getting in trouble for taking things without paying Readers will have several of their assumptions about the reasons behind theft challenged by the author s depictions of the girls In the case of Tabitha, shoplifting is her [...]

    9. Kirsten Smith co wrote two movies I love Legally Blonde and 10 Things I Hate About You and one I hated The Ugly Truth That sentence will probably tell you whether or not you want to read this book.Like the movies I loved, this book won t change your life and it probably won t be something you end up re reading.But if you re in a reading slump or if you even just want to read a book that s cute and sweet but is also unexpectedly deeper than you d expect it to be, this may be the book for you.I li [...]

    10. It s been awhile since I ve read a book I ve been so busy with college stuffs I m reading starting today I hope I still pass So on to the book reviewI loved their personalities I never got annoyed with their attitude and all I loved how the story progressed I loved everything about the book It didn t focus on romance Instead it focused on family and friends It was a refreshing read And yeah, I just wanna say I m the combination of the three of them lol

    11. I really enjoyed this book, three girls Moe, Elodie and Tabitha all with a different story, who probably never would have connected as friends had they not shared something in common, a compulsive need to shoplift Kirsten Smith s development of their characters was very believable.

    13. I don t know if it s the because of the red wine I was drinking when reading it even though the only people of drinking age in the book were the parents , but I found this book to be a delight.

    15. My opinion on this book would be that it was very interesting, it had a bunch of funny parts and the twist towards the middle of the book had me hooked and on the edge of my seat for days After finishing the book I handed it down to a good friend of mine so she can share a laugh or two as well this book, in my opinion, was based on friendship and sisterhood Yes, the teens began talking to each other because they were in a group full of kleptomaniacs and they were there to get help but as the boo [...]

    16. Usually I don t like stories that are told from the point of view of than one person, but this one did it pretty well Since it s about three teenagers, I think I m a bit past its time, but it was still a fun read, and since it was set in Oregon where I used to live it was fun to find a spot mentioned and be like Hey, I know where that is So if you re a teen it s worth a read, and even better if you live in Oregon

    17. Nothing too interesting I loved the writing and the voice But the story felt very much like something a mother would buy her teen daughter to veer her away from sex and crime The characters needed depth and the story needed STORY This book gave me no sense of fulfillment but I do think it helped me personally as a writer.

    18. A perfect view of how unguided teens resolve their problems making even bigger mistakes and then then ultimately growing from the bigger mistakes This was a humorous take on very unlikely friendships between the social classes in high school.

    19. I ve had this YA novel on my watch list for over four years, and upon finally reading I found it a pleasant surprise The three different narrators and short chapters kept the story moving and kept it interesting A little bit of The Breakfast Club meets Mean Girls A well done unlikely friendship story.

    22. Originally reviewed on my blog Reading the Best of the Best.Trinkets was a book I normally wouldn t read Shoplifting No thanks But when I decided to give it a chance and I m still unsure if I liked this book or not For one, the book is told through the three different point of views Elodie s are in verse, Moe s are in shot, diary formats, and Tabitha s are in normal paragraph form I ve always been hesitant about books told in dual or in this case, triple POVs because it s rare that actual charac [...]

    23. It s been a while since I ve read a book aimed for teenage females so I thoughtI d read this one on recommendation from Rookie by recommendation I mean by the site covered in advertisements for it, but nonetheless, Rookie has rarely lead me astray which actually made me a little uncomfortable when realising that the cover art, praise, acknowledgements and even a subtle mention of Tavi were rather Rookie central Perhaps I m being paranoid about how much consumerism I m buying into, but it did fee [...]

    24. This is one of those lesser known books that, in my opinion, deserves heaps attention Trinkets wasn t even on my radar until I read Magan s review and realized that it was exactly the kind of book I love Next time I was at the bookstore, I made a point of reading the first few pages, just to be sure And then, so proud of myself for thoroughly researching a book before reading, I requested it from the library Except I totally should have bought it Basically, I loved Trinkets I loved it so much K [...]

    25. I really enjoyed Trinkets Going in, I was expecting to be put off by these three teenage girls who steal, especially when I really wound up not liking Pretty Crooked, which had a main character that also stole, albeit for different reasons But instead of a book that focused only on the stealing, we got a look at three girls who have their own sets of issues, who ultimately become friends It was this journey from semi acquaintances to really good friends that I enjoyed most about the story.The bo [...]

    26. Source LibraryI think had seen this book around as an upcoming 2013 release but it really got my attention when one of my favorite bloggers reviewed it obviously I m talking about Jen Ryland see below for link to her review Her mention of its glossy portrayal of shoplifting and its aftereffects as well as the healthy dose of humor drew me to this book Additionally there was the promise of strong female friendship and sweet romances We so often agree and I had a good feeling about this.All the af [...]

    27. 3.5 5On the surface, quiet, goody goody Elodie, popular, rich Tabitha and lazy burnout Moe have no similarities But when the three of them show up, under varying circumstances, in the same Shoplifters Anonymous group, Tabitha can t resist challenging the other two girls to a thievery contest An unlikely friendship is formed as they come to discover that they have in common than they thought.I had fun casting these roles in my head the fact that Kirsten Smith is a screenwriter and producer her w [...]

    28. This was an engaging and lovable story about thieves and friendship.Elodie, Tiffany and Moe are 3 girls from different social groups within high school who have had nothing to do with each other all wind up in Shoplifters Anonymous together This story follows their unlikely friendship as they bond over their kleptomania.This story put a different spin on shoplifting, and even though the characters were doing something immoral and illegal, they still came across as likable protagonists.Elodie Elo [...]

    29. What do Moe, Tabitha, and Elodie have in common Not a whole lot In fact, pretty much nothing, if you were to ask any of them before the day they meet up in, of all places, Shoplifters Anonymous.These are girls from all different walks of life Tabitha is a typical pampered princess, Moe a so called rebel living with her Aunt, and Elodie is the new girl in town, still struggling with changes in her family They go to the same school, even take some of the same classes, but never, ever would have ta [...]

    30. I really liked Kirsten Smith s writing style in here Although the three main characters are complete opposites of each other, she manages to convey their personalities so well through her words And even though they have such different personalities and writing styles, Smith is still able to create a sense of unity through them with her flowing words and humorous diction However, one thing that really bugged me in the beginning was that there were so many names thrown around that I got confused S [...]
