    One thought on “If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor”

    1. 3.5 stars, rounded up.Definitely not my typical reading material. I was expecting (hoping for!) something a bit more dark and angsty. Jennifer Taylor is a popular high school cheerleader. She's blonde, slender and rich. Carolyn Samuels, in great contrast, is not. Naturally, Carolyn envies Jennifer and wishes she could be more like her. That is, until she actually gets to know more about her life and realizes that sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side.This story was definite [...]

    2. Barbara Ehrentreu offers a taste of those nasty old days of beginning high school when you're not the cheerleader with all the friends. Most of us, right?Carolyn is the nobody who wants to be somebody, and that somebody is Jennifer Taylor. Blond, beautiful, dating the star quarterback. Jennifer has it all, and Carolyn envies and fears her ridicule.By chance, the two girls are paired to complete a math assignment involving statistics. That means they have to cooperate to get it done. Thrown toget [...]

    3. I pretty much only give 4-5 star reviews. If a story doesn’t grab me opening chapters, with limited time, I set it aside. This debut novel hooked me opening page and didn’t let go. I felt like I was completely immersed in Carolyn’s world. Without an excess of drama or unrealistic focus on getting a boyfriend, clothes and makeup, this 14 year old told her story from the viewpoint of an honest kid who genuinely respected and cared for her parents. So refreshing! Her relationship, especially [...]

    4. This book should be given to me for free since it uses my name. :) OK, there are a LOT of Jennifer Taylors in the world, but I have to admit that I was drawn to this book because of the title only.

    5. Great voice and also addresses a topic that most teens know about.YA Books Central review:yabookscentral/yaficti

    6. Jennifer Taylor seems perfect on the outside. Carolyn Samuels would give anything to be her carbon copy. On the outside Jennifer Taylor appeared put together, secure, smart and confident. But, was that the real Jennifer? Deep down Jennifer had a secret that she wanted to keep hidden from everyone. Jennifer wore an invisible mask or shield that covered up truths hidden beneath them. Appearances are everything to teens and being popular and beautiful paramount in their minds. Author Barbara Ehrent [...]

    7. High school is a difficult time in anyone's life, even for the overly popular. We all struggled with finding ourselves, dealing with bullies, talking to our crush, and so much more. It was a time of discovery and self-awareness and acceptance. And it's these things that Barbara Ehrentreu has managed to capture so wonderfully in her debut Young Adult novel, If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor.The story starts out much like you'd expect, a young girl is going off to her first day of high school, su [...]

    8. This review, as well as an Author interview and a giveaway (ends 6th June) has been posted on my blog bajanrosabooks/20Blurb: Carolyn Samuels, is your average everyday teenage girl, and that is her problem. The last thing Carolyn wants is to be average and unnoticed on the first day of school but what can she do about it. She wears size 14 clothes that are baggy and out of style. The boy she's pinning after doesn't even see her and worst of all, she has to face the perfect Jennifer Taylor at sch [...]

    9. This book urks me in the most fantastic way. The writer, Barbara either had some experience with bullying herself, or witnessed countless as a teacher throughout her 17 years of teaching experience read from her biography in an article on examiner. Strange the writer's biography wasn't listed on Barbara's Meanderings blog that I could read.Okay, back to the book. I started by saying the book urks me but its more because of the relevant content and drama of the characters that makes each reader f [...]

    10. I don’t want to be like Jennifer Taylor. I want to be like Carolyn Samuels.I knew what I was getting into when I picked up If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor. I knew it would be a high school coming-of-age story. And I knew there would be a great ending. What I didn’t know was how good the entire experience was going to be.It was more than good. It was great.What struck me most about the book was how easy it was to read. I started reading this book and did not put it down until I finished re [...]

    11. HIGH SCHOOLWill it be any different than gulp MIDDLE SCHOOL?Carolyn Samuels sure hopes soBut how can it be any different when her arch-enemy, the all too perfect Jennifer Taylor passes into High School right along with her?Cringing with the memories of how Jennifer and her best friend ridiculed her all through the last year, Carolyn prepares for the worst.IF I COULD BE LIKE JENNIFER TAYLOR is a journey through the rites of passage between adolescent angst and dawning maturity.Ms. Ehrentreu, a [...]

    12. Carolyn Samuels wants it all. To be perfect and popular like many 14 year olds. But she soon realises that it isnt all it's cracked up to be. This novel raises awareness of important issues like bullying, anxiety, and eating disorders. Realistic fourteen year old voice and character development. I am impressed.

    13. thank you for letting me reviewvery easy to read was hookeda coming of age storywith very good ending Carolyn wants everything Jenniferas and wants to be just like herbut soon sees is not easy or all its cracked up to bedrama bullys and eating iusses this book as it all

    14. I think this is a novel every teenage girl should read. It brought out every emotion in me from embarrassment, to anger, to fear, to joy. For me, it's up there with Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret.

    15. This should be a must read for any teen or adult. A compelling story written by a master of the English language. If I didn't know better, I'd assume the author was a teen herself.

    16. The other night I began reading If I Could be Like Jennifer Taylor by Barbara Ehrentreu. Having read so many paranormal romance books recently, this one was a breath of fresh air. Not that I have anything against paranormal romance, it was just nice to have a change.If I could be Like Jennifer Taylor introduces us to freshmen student Carolyn Samuels. She is far from popular, overweight and often times the brunt of jokes at school. There is one girl, Jennifer Taylor, that has made Carolyn’s lif [...]
