Review

“Gripping from cover to cover, Disconnected is one of those books you really can't put down. I haven't been so impressed with a novel for quite some time now and Sherry Ashworth has, on the merits of this one novel alone, become one of my favourite authors… It's not often that a book makes me think I must go out and find some more of this author's work now, but that's the effect Disconnected had on me. I was well and truly blown away.”
Fiona McKinlay, teenage reviewer for whsonline.co.uk

From the Back Cover

It’s hard to know where to begin. I’m not even sure who I want to talk to. Or what I want to say. But maybe if I try to put all the different parts together it will make some sort of sense. So here’s my story, and it’s for each of you to whom I own an explanation.

But remember, i’m not sorry.

'Catherine Margaret Holmes
Loving and dutiful daughter.

Cathy Holmes
A-level, A-grade student

Cath Holmes
Friend and confidante

Cat
Risk taker, thrill seeker, rebel

'Will that do as an introduction?

Format: Paperback
i bought this book while trying to find myself a new bell jar, or catcher in the rye, or really anything that would hit that self involved spot, and i was incredibly disappointed. To use Holden's language, this whole thing came across to me as totally goddamn phony, the main character just flounced about with no convincing motivations, and the ending was surely the worst, with her views and ideas changing with the flip of a switch, as if identity is as instantaneous as witnessing a morality tale. Not something i could ever believe.

Ever sat and thought, "I just can't be bothered" or gone to pick up your books and instantly felt too tired to study.
I know. I'm there right now. Upon reading a review for this book, I picked it up and was instantly hooked. It seemed to be all the thoughts in my head written down in continuous monologue.
It made me laugh a few times with just how accurately this title hit the nail on the head. We study all our lives (up until now) just o get a place at Uni. so we can study more.
Although it is written from girl's perspective, I can relate to allot if not all of its contents.
On the more positive side, it makes you realise that there are some things in life that make it worth living and that everything is worth the effort in the end.

Format: Paperback
I felt extremely hypocritical reading this book being as the main character, Cathy Holmes, could have been based upon me, or any 17 year old with half a brain. The way the middle classes are attacked by the girl seem so wasted and pointless because at the end of the day, that is where she belongs.
However, the way the story goes full circle and shows Cathy for just another middle class kid gives the story such honesty and realism that made it seem almost non-fictional.
The epistolary style gives the book an ease to read, and break it up so you never get bored, and you get see how the story is told when being directed at a different audience.
Not the best book I'll ever read but I feel I gained alot from reading it

This book expresses so many feelings that I had. I am at uni now but I felt exactly the same. The book is really engrossing and it shows how different we act with different people. I would definitely recommend it- I read it whilst doing my A Levels and it changed the way I think. I am not from a middle class family, quite a poor family in fact, but I could still relate to it.

I stumbled across this book whilst browsing amazon and knew immediately that I had to buy it. I spent most of my 2 years in 6th form feeling the same way as Cat - In fact, her words could so easily have come straight from my own mouth (if only I was that eloquent). This book illustrates perfectly just how easy it is to take for granted that you 'should' follow a certain path in life and more importantly, just how scary it is to suddenly realise that there is more to life and that that path may not be right for you!
