Nothing by Annie Barrows

Into the Wild

Nothing Read Online Free - Nothing ever happens to Charlotte and Frankie. Their lives are nothing like the lives of the girls they read about in their YA novels. They don’t have flowing red hair and hot romantic encounters never happen—let alone meeting a true soul mate. They just go to high school and live at home with their parents, who are pretty normal, all things considered. But when Charlotte decides to write down everything that happens during their sophomore year to prove that nothing happens and there is no plot or character development in real life, she’s surprised to find that being fifteen isn’t as boring as she thought. It’s weird, heartbreaking, silly, and complicated. And maybe, just perfect.

In the parlance of "windows" and "mirrors," I read a lot of "window" books. I read a lot of books about children and teens who aren't growing up like I grew up: who come from afar, or live in poverty, or are haunted by the ghost of a vengeful classmate in 1919. I mean, *shrug* what do you write a...

This is a combination of Seinfeld and Gidget. No, seriously, work with me here. This is a book about nothing. About ordinary girls, friends, living their regular lives. They have families and homework and boys they like and other friends they hang out with. They talk about stuff, and boys, and go...

I was curious about the premise of this book. Two teenage friends are disenchanted with the predictability of life, and Charlotte decides to write an expose as a school assignment, to prove that it's not all it's cracked up to be. She plans to document what a typical, dull go-to-school life is re...

I have no individuality. I'm a prisoner of my context * 1 / 5 When you pick up a book entitled "Nothing", which on the back proclaims to be about two girls to whom nothing ever happens, you probably ought not to be too upset when that's exactly what you get: a book about nothing. It's not like it w...

This book is trash. The whole premise of this book is that it’s a book about nothing, told from the perspective of two teenage girls who are chronicling how boring their lives are for a high school project. The book is supposed to be this meta self-aware commentary on YA novels and how their prot...

NOTHING is actually a book that focuses on the lives of two high schoolers where nothing happens in their lives, maybe a little something happens but their life is rather bland. Here starts my problem with the book. By 40%, I had put down, picked up and put down the book numerous times because I...

3.5 Stars I have serious difficulty believing that a teenager didn't write this book. Charlotte and Frankie are in their sophomore year of high school, and they're convinced that everything about their lives is utterly boring. To prove this, Charlotte sets out to write a book documenting their l...

This was cute! Frankie and Charlotte have the witty banter that is super fun to read. I think that my favorite thing was how believable this book was. Truly the lives of high schoolers are pretty boring. While reading I did think that a little further character development, and explanation were n...

Finally! A book that comes with its own cover story! "What are you reading?" "Nothing." The banter between Frankie and Charlotte hooked me before they'd even finished their first conversation. I loved their friendship! They were both fluent in sarcasm, were self-deprecating and funny. They got frus...

I found this book to be quite adorable and amusing. There were many times it reminded me of a little show about nothing. Our lives are not as exciting as books or movies, but there are still a lot of small, meaningful moments we experience on a daily basis, and that is my take away from this rath...
