    In preparation for the course on Young Adult library users I am taking this summer I started reading Jezebel's Fine Lines column and this book was featured at one point I've never read Zindel despite a hefty appetite for this kind of junkThis book could not be written today Zindel writes so expertly about the ambivalence that kids feel towards relationships towards themselves and a confusion that is so real I hope YA a

    I must be an idiot or something because I did not find this book charming like everyone else Yes there was teen angst that we can all relate to but it all revolved around sex The entire story does I could not relate to any of the characters or feel compassion for any of them They started out flat and ended flat The book takes over the course of a school year but there were no changes in them Then ending was awkward and left a lot of unanswe

REVIEW My Darling My Hamburger

My Darling My Hamburger

Stood by their parents Their best friends Maggie and Dennis are shy and awkward but willing to take the first tentative steps toward a romance I don t know if any author has ever poignantly or perceptively captured the essence of what it means to be a teenager than Paul Zindel has done in My Darling My Hamburger The specific crisis situation that this book revolves around perfectly recreates the atmosphere that many teenagers nearing graduation from high school face in their own personal ways the feeling that all of the sudden their life has started to move a little bit too uickly after seeming to have traveled at a snail s crawl up until then and they re scared of what s coming next and not at all sure how to make the right decisions as a long series of life altering choices suddenly swoop down and demand to be made right now Sure some of those decisions could be seen coming by the student with good foresight but how easy is it to be lulled into the false sense of security of thinking that you have forever at your disposal to decide the course of your life when you re still inside the safe walls of the primary school domain When faced all of the sudden with the real world it can feel as if no choice is right and everything you do is only going to get you in deeper That s the feeling of helplessness that My Darling My Hamburger captures to such sobering perfection It s a feeling that I know assaults many teenagers when they find themselves on the brink of legal adulthood What can you do when you re not ready for your own life What remedy is available when it feels as if your future is wrecked before your dreams can ever even get off the ground Two senior couples Sean and Liz and Dennis and Maggie are the focus of the book as it begins Sean has become bold in pushing the boundaries of physical intimacy and Liz isn t afraid to push back which has created some hostility between the two in recent days Sean can t understand why Liz clings so stubbornly to the belief that he won t respect her in the same way if they give in to their carnal desires he loves her and she loves him so why not take their relationship to the next level and see how far they really might be able to go together Liz finds her own reluctance to grant Sean s reuest for intimacy a difficult stance to articulate She does believe that he loves her and vice versa but she knows that if they cross that line before a permanent commitment is made then he s not going to have the same respect for her he just won t Liz doesn t want to antagonize Sean but she sees no other way to maintain her personal dignity and Sean s unrest grows with each time that she politely refuses his advances Maggie and Dennis the other main couple of the book are just beginning their relationship and neither knows how far they want it to go Dennis has issues with insecurity over what he considers to be a lack of handsomeness on his own part but like anyone else he wants to be in a relationship Maggie for her part isn t sure if Dennis is the right one for her A series of planned dates with Dennis that Maggie has to call off at the last minute in order to help Liz who happens to be her best friend out of some tough situations stirs up Dennis s unhappiness and his deeper issues of insecurity about his physical appearance flare up and form a barrier between himself and Maggie Why is it he wonders that his unattractiveness cuts him off from the chance to experience normal happiness in the world Why does this same problem keep knocking him down again and again Shortly before graduation Liz reveals to Maggie the shocking secret she has known about for the last two months It will rock their future plans and change their lives forever and nothing will be the same when Liz makes an enormous decision that will affect everyone involved in the deepest way possible I don t want to talk much about the specific issues that are brought up in this book so as to guard against spoiling the plot for future readers but I do want to say that the subtlety of this story s emotional undertow is incredible My Darling My Hamburger feels way like real life than it does like a fictional story Not everything becomes resolved by the end of the book not by a long shot and the deconstruction of the feelings of immortality of the four main characters as they begin to realize that their personal Shangri La of high school life is not as impenetrable as it had seemed is masterfully and honestly written showing all the nuanced work of a prodigious painter This is the kind of book that one reads and emotionally identifies with so closely that it s a challenge to describe exactly why it s so moving One only knows that it is and that the experience of reading the book is a uniuely special one I would give three and a half stars to My Darling My Hamburger A House of My Own Stories from My Life know if any author has ever poignantly or perceptively captured the essence of
