I caught this one on the bargain shelf at Barnes and Noble The whole packaging just drew me in not to mention the 6 price The drawings the package of stuff at the beginning the whole journal set up For the price I decided to give it a tryWell this was definitely an interesting one I loved Cathy's voice even though her persistence in the whole situation got a little grating every once in a while I have to agree with her mom in the you better find a rich guy to support you mantra because of her tendency to brush off her studies What can I say I'm a school person And in a world where the Bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma trashing out on school to dream and stalk an ex boyfriend is not the best of ideas I'm a creative dreamy type of person but I'm not deluded enough to think my dreaming will pay my bills So the story tweaked that logical side of my brain every so often But not nearly enough to give up on it Not even closeI really liked all of the characters especially Mr Tsao but Emma well I didn't see what Cathy saw in her Her ego maniacal insistence to carry out her 3030 plan at the expense of Cathy I didn't see that I'm there for you now you need to be there for me type of thing Offering a helping hand is one thing Offering yourself up to marry a rich psycho just to help your friend fulfill her superficial dream of being rich so she doesn't have to be poor is a little much Wasn't too fond of that dynamicBut aside from that it was a really interesting story I kept getting really frustrated because I wanted information and explanation that what we were given but thus is the burden of remaining in first person We only know what Cathy knows and how frustrating it must be for her being in the middle of it I was right there with her the entire time especially every time she went to San Francisco I love San Francisco I blew through this book because I just kept wanting to find out what was going to happen next And I love the set up of the entries and their little titlesI love the little doodles throughout the book and I even pulled up some of the websites in all the paperwork that came with the book What I especially liked was the ending SO didn't see that one coming I won't spoil it but what I will say is I love the scientific aspect of a very prevalent trope in a saturated YA market It was very refreshing especially the build up to it all It leads you down one road only to have a bum rusher come along and thrust you into another lane at the very last second Very awesomeIf you can find this in the bargain bin like I did I highly recommend snatching it up If not buy it anyway It's money well spent

Cathy's Book: If Found Call (650)266-8233 review é eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ The publishing phenomenon Cathy’s Book redefined the way teens approach novels and set a new standard for interactivity using the most popular kids’ technology to enhance the experience of reading a really good story As a new chapterThe publishing phenomenon Cathy’s Book redefined the way teens approach novels and set a new standard for interactivity using the most popular kids’ technology to enhance the experience of reading a really good story As a new chapter is about to unfold with the publication of the seuel Cathy’s Key later this spring the original novel is available in trade paperback All of the supplementary items from the “evidence pack” are reproduced on pages in the back of the book making this edition accessible. This book gets 5 stars for being the most immersive reading experience that I've had in uite some time From the plethora of clues stuffed in the front pocket of the diary to the intricate doodles that decorate the diary’s narrative this read is uniue Newspaper clippings Chinese restaurant menus torn of pieces of a photograph an actual napkin with a lip print these are just some of the amazing extras that are provided to the reader as “proof” of the story If that isn’t enough try calling some of the characters’ phone numbers YES YOU CAN CALL REAL PHONE NUMBERS to listen to the voicemail records and if you are a diligent reader you can find the clues to the characters’ pass codes to access their messages Internet search engine use is encouraged throughout the book; Cathy suggests Googling certain terms in her own diary All and all it wraps the reader in a new reality and makes the story authentic in ways that merely reading the book would not Cathy’s Diary is an experience of sorts an experiment in storytelling I for one loved it Cathy is a seventeen year old aspiring sketch artist who is reeling from being recently dumped by her mysterious older boyfriend Victor With the help of her best friend Emma Cathy sets out to investigate the uncertainties surrounding the break up What she discovers however is complicated and other worldly than she could even imagine In fact the entire narrative is told through her journal – left for Emma to discover in the event that Cathy disappears For all the great things I loved about this book I have several rather large complaints Fortunately these complaints don’t outweigh the merits of this book 1 Advertising The book has blatant and repeated references to CoverGirl cosmetics – exact lipstick and mascara shades are scattered throughout the book At times this can seem a direct advertisement for makeup – which works against everything the author attempted to create Yes Cathy is a teenage girl but no most teenage girls don’t meticulously record exact shades of makeup in their journal 2 The length It is short Too short I wanted 3 The ending – in particular Victor’s secret that is revealed through Cathy’s persistent detective work I let out a huge groan when I discovered what he was hiding Without delving into too much detail or spoilers I’ll say the paranormal makes an appearance – bringing this book that tried so hard to be realistic and immersive into the territory of science fiction and fantasy I like those genres but nestled among the fine details of this story it felt like a radical departure Something hoaxyThat said I’ve got the second in this series on my to read list Perhaps I’m inviting disappointment but I loved the whole concept of this first book too much to ignore the rest of the series
