I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting, I felt that I knew the characters and couldn't wait to see what happened next.
It's a book written for young adults but equally suitable for adults.
Where to start? ‘The Frog Theory’ was definitely a book unlike any other books I’ve read. Kim and Flow are best friends and life their lives selling drugs, having sex and just hanging out. Clea on the outside looks like just another rich girl, but she is having a hard time with a abusive stepfather and no friends. When the three of them meet at a party, they don’t expect life to change much. But soon all their lives will change.
This book really was a little weird. The chapters are short. And the book is written through the eyes of four different people. The book begins with a short summary about who the main characters are. And honestly I didn’t expect to really enjoy this read after the first chapter. But I kept on reading and somehow I found myself enjoying the story of Kim, Flow and Clea.
The writing, with the short chapters was definitely a little unusual but in the end I really enjoyed ‘The Frog Theory’. I loved how these three young people made a better life for themselves, and how they found friendship with each other. Their where definitely some funny moments in this book and it made me smile.
The book was much shorter than I expected, and I would have enjoyed a little more depth and a longer storyline. But this book was definitely a nice read.
It has always been the same crowd all from the same sort of background right way through school until one day things change. Fate throws into the mix a young lady, yes lady from the other side of town, who’s step father drives a Porsche. But just because the outside world thinks she is living the dream doesn’t change the fact that she is actually in a nightmare situation at home. One of abuse. When Clea tells one of the lads Kim about her situation he tells her a story about a frog. He says if you drop a frog into boiling water it will jump out but if it is in cold water that is heated it will stay there not realising and eventually die. Clea knows that only she can change her life.
This is such a great story of love, loyalty, misunderstandings and coming of age type books. It follows the main characters Kim, Flow and Clea from the teenage years to adults. There are lovely romantic moments, times when I was going, ‘tell her for crying out loud’ and very funny times. For me it was one heck of an all round entertaining read. I particularly loved the times with the Principal. Classic.
