About the Author
Jaclyn Moriarty grew up in Sydney, Australia, and studied Law and English on three continents - at Sydney University in Australia, Yale in the US and Cambridge in England. She spent four years working as a media and entertainment lawyer but now writes full-time so she can go to work in her pyjamas. Jaclyn and her Canadian partner divide their time between Sydney and Montreal, depending where the summer is.
Jaclyn's first novel for young adults, Feeling Sorry for Celia, was an instant best-seller in Australia, America and the UK. She followed this up with the equally fantastic Finding Cassie Crazy. Jaclyn also writes for adults.

Jaclyn Moriarty writes in the style of letters and transcripts like her previous books. She makes you interested in this unusually girl, Bindy, from the very first page making it an enjoyable read. This book is humorous, interesting and unpredictable with a good plot. In this book we see the return of Elizabeth (Feeling Sorry for Celia) and Emily (Finding Cassie Crazy), this makes it much more enjoyable for those who have read the previous books, and makes you love these characters instantly (no matter what they do) but if you haven't read the other books it doesn't matter, you'll still love the characters. It isn't my favourite book by Jaclyn Moriarty (Finding Cassie Crazy is my favourite) but I still think it's great and would recommend it. Once you've started it, you have to keep reading till it's finished.
Admittedly, Becoming Bindy Mackenzie has a slightly more off-the-wall storyline than the other 2, but the mixture of bittersweet teenage drama and humour is perfectly combined.
I also like the continuity from her previous 2 books - the main character of Feeling Sorry For Celia and one of the main characters of Finding Cassie Crazy feature quite prominently in Becoming Bindy Mackenzie - but nothing about the storyline of Becoming will be lost if you've not read the previous 2 books. That just adds to the enjoyment.
All in all, a great read.
If you have read any of Jaclyn Moriarty's other books, this one is very similar, and if you haven't, I recommend you to try it as it is very different to the norm.
