About the Author

Dawn O'Porter is a broadcaster, novelist and print journalist who lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, cat Lilu and dog Potato. She has made numerous documentaries about all sorts of things: polygamy, childbirth, Geisha, body image, breast cancer and even the movie DIRTY DANCING. Dawn is currently a columnist for Glamour Magazine in the UK, and writes regularly for many other publications. Her first novel, PAPER AEROPLANES, was published by Hot Key Books in 2013, to critical acclaim. GOOSE is the sequel, and two more novels in the series are planned. She is also a highly prolific Tweeter (@hotpatooties) and manages her own website www.dawnoporter.co.uk. Dawn is obsessed with vintage clothing and can be seen in This Old Thing on C4, trying to convert high-streetaholics to the way of old threads. Dawn is also in the process of setting up her own clothing label, BOB (she also has a bob...)

Paper Aeroplanes was my 2013 YA book of the Year, so I had extremely high expections for Goose.
I was so excited to be back in Guernsey with Renee and Flo and to see what had changed and what on earth they could be getting themselves into.

OK, what to say?
It's extremely dark.
It's practically a teenagers worst nightmare.
Flo is still extremely insecure and Renee is still her loud mouth protector.
erm....

To be totally honest with you I just wasn't engrossed enough to get the big shock factor that Goose gives. The first book had me gripped from the start and didn't let go at all. Even now if I think back I'm instantly gripped again. I so needed Goose to be like that, and although it is very good it just does not have that metal fist that grips you hard, pulls you in and doesn't let go. I just felt like there wasn't much point to some of it. It focused a lot more on Flo and her Bible bashing which was a bit on the boring side. I do see that both charcters need and deserve their own plots and time, and this was a test in their relationship hence two different stories merging into one, but it just dragged a bit.
It's good, please don't think I hated it because that's not true. The plot is strong and the characters still amazing. Their are issues that have been treated with care and it's extremely funny. I just wanted it to on the same level as Paper Aeroplanes and unfortunately it wasn't.

3/5

Format: Paperback
I actually feel a bit mean about what I am going to say about this book because I love Dawn, she is so warm and friendly and funny to all of her twitter followers and I really loved the first book. However, I feel like this book was a little bit flat. I didn’t feel the empathy for the characters that I felt in the first book. It almost felt like the book was written in a rush. That said, I would love to read a short story catching up with both Renée and Flo NOW in 2014. I want to know if they are still friends, do they both still live in Guernsey or not?

For me, the stories weren’t intertwined enough to grip me. I felt like i was following 2 completely different stories. I didn’t actually care what happened to Renée, I started to dislike her…..a lot! Maybe this was what Dawn wanted because just when you started to think “what a dick”, WHOSH something happens which throws you. I didn’t expect that to happen and I actually didn’t care too much about Renée and what would happen to her, i felt like she was the cog that moved Flo’s story on at that point and it made you want a happy ending for Flo.

Maybe it was because it had been 2years since i read Paper Aeroplanes or maybe because I am a little older than I think Dawn’s target audience is but it’s not a book i would go out of my way to recommend. If you have read the first book, read this one. If you haven’t read the first one, read it and then read this one.

Do make sure you have tissues handy though because it did make me cry towards the end!

By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 May 2015
Format: Paperback
I really like Dawn O'Porter. She is witty, and funny and I have enjoyed her television documentaries and a lot of her articles. I read Paper Aeroplanes and was slightly less enamoured than I wanted to be by the book. This sequel, Goose, I found less appealing than the first book, despite wanting quite desperately to like it.

I think the main thing for me is that although the themes are strong and the storylines are commendable, the girls voices, both inner and in dialogue with others seems quite juvenile in relation to what they are experiencing and what they are supposed to be like. It is as if a primary aged child is talking sometimes, and after a while I found this really grating, particularly for Renee's voice, as she is supposed to be the more precocious and 'mature' of the two girls.

I think if you loved the first book you will need to read this and you will probably enjoy it just as much, particularly if you're in your teens and the target audience.

I had to laugh as I read this, not because the situation is funny but I went from reading a sedate Amish fiction romance book (with only a kiss/glance shared) to a read which has extremely colourful language and intense romantic situations which taught me things I possibly could have done without learning.

But overall this is a sweet tale, definitely one I couldn't put down as the two girls help each other out at a tricky time in their life. It was hard to watch the friction between then, although it didn't bother me that I hadn't read Paper Aeroplanes where the story first started. Their friendship isn't without issues, but they manage to surmount them and get through life's ups and downs together, even when that meant having to be apart for a while.

I received a copy from the publisher for review on my blog Nayu's Reading Corner http://nayusreadingcorner.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/goose-by-dawn-oporter-young-adult-910e.html

If you want something that is a quick read , maybe whilst travelling then this is for you. Nothing bad about it, just lacks the depth I enjoy when I a read.

I enjoyed Dawns first book paper airplanes and wanted to know more about what happened to the characters. I read this book extremely quickly. Started well but it just descended into silliness and I was quite frankly bored towards the end. Shame as the first novel was better thought out. I love Dawns documentaries on TV so would read another book of hers just not this one.
