Goose (Paper Aeroplanes, #2) Read Online Free - It's a year and a half on from Paper Aeroplanes, and Renée is now living with her Aunty Jo. They even have geese, and Renée likes to sit and watch them, wondering if she'll ever find 'the One' - someone who will love her no matter what, and be there for her no matter how bad things get. She and Flo are in their final year at school, and they've got some tough choices to make - like will they go to university? And if so where - and will they go together? Renée's usual ambivalence on the matter shocks Flo, who had assumed they'd continue as they were, the best and closest of friends, forever. She feels as though she needs Renée's support more than ever, so when a handsome young boy enters Flo's life, she finds herself powerfully drawn to his kindness, and his faith. Renée and Flo's friendship will soon be tested in a way neither of them could have expected - and if Paper Aeroplanes was a book about finding friendship, Goose is the novel that explores whether it's possible to keep hold of it.

Goose is even better than Paper Aeroplanes and I absolutely adored that one! Dawn O'Porter is quickly becoming one of my auto-buy authors. Her work is so honest, creates such nostalgia and juggles both humour and deep issues so well. These books are absolutely unputdownable. Goose is much da...

Oh dear, what a disappointing mess of a sequel to a brilliant first novel:
- Goose is shortlisted for the UK's first ever YA Book Prize, probably for the fact that it deals with some important issues: sex, religion, death/mortality, self-worth, family, misogyny etc. However the whole novel felt ex...

Actual rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
I really think Paper Airplanes could have easily been a stand-alone. I really enjoyed that book for being a honest portrayal of teenage girls growing up and finding new friendship. Although similar issues are still present here (although more focused on the friend...

[GKBT 16. Tur] Kağıttan Hayaller - Dawn O’Porter | Kitap Yorumu
İlk kitapla ikinci kitabın kapak ve tasarım uyumuna bayıldım. Rengi ise benim en bir sevdiğim yeşil, fıstık yeşili! İçi de dışı kadar beğenimi kazandı. Yeniden.
Gelelim kitaba. İki kitaptan oluşan serinin son kitabı Kağıttan Hayaller....

Even though I wasn't bowled over by Paper Aeroplanes, I decided to persevere and give Goose a chance...well, I wish I hadn't!
I find it hard to believe that these two friends, at 18, would be so naïve and childish.
I found Flo thoroughly irritating. I understand she was bullied by Sally and has low...

I just don't think the content of this book sat well with me. It felt a little abrupt, and wasn't really what I was expecting...
I didn't relate well to either of the characters, and the content I was looking forward to, from the blurb, was not executed the way I wanted.
Almost didn't finish and p...

if there's something I admire, it's O'Porter's honesty

Review by Beth
It is no secret that I loved Paper Aeroplanes. In fact it featured in my favourite books of 2013 and so I was determined to be top of the list when it came to reading the sequel, Goose. Already knowing the characters meant there was an element of returning to old friends with Goose...

Goose is set a year and a half after Paper Aeroplanes, Renée and Flo are eighteen and pondering what lies beyond their final school year. Goose explores the nature and of friendship, love, sex and even the delicate subject of faith. I didn't love this as much as I loved Paper Aeroplanes and I'm n...

I made myself finish Goose, instead of DNFing it like I wanted to. Renee and Flo were such unlikable characters, and I had such a hard time connecting with them. I kept hoping there would be some redemption, that they'd actually have a reason for being so high-strung and mean.
