The Betrayal of Bindy MackenzieLife begins to fall apart She can't stop feeling sleepy and she fails an exam for the first time ever And worst of all she just doesn't care What could be the cause of all these strange events Is it conspiracy Is it madness Is it murd. I love love love Jaclyn Moriarty but this bookWhat happened It was so odd I thought at first I just wasn't connecting with Bindy's character Then I decided the problem was me and I internally praised Moriarty's way of conveying feelings and emotions But thenthat ending I'm rather baffled by this book It seemsunduly dramatic

Becoming Bindy Mackenzie is probably the Jaclyn Moriarty book I struggled most with at the beginning All of her books have been a little hard for me to get into – I have to reach a certain point in the story before I am totally immersed But then it is almost impossible to stop reading That certain point came very late this time In fact I had already considered giving up Now I have to say While Bindy isn't my favourite in the Ashbury series I am still very very glad I read itFrom the outside Bindy is a very hard character to like Not knowing what the reader knows I can understand that her classmates are not very friendly towards her that some even despise her She looks down on others even if she does not realise that she is a know it all and she often unconsciously hurts the people around her with what she says Yet understanding what has made her the way she is I just felt incredibly sad for her She is a good person kind and caring but she has never learned to openly show it and in trying to be helpful she often just comes across as mean I loved seeing Bindy change throughout the year discover new things about her character and learn her story through past diary entries The mystery surrounding her health is it stress is it an illness might it even be glandular fever is it gasp murder kept me guessing the whole time turning the pages in a frenzy cursing my train to arrive at uni so fast normally it takes ages and the outcome really surprised me – which happens rarely I have to admitAll in all a great addition to the Ashbury series In contrary to the first two installments Feeling Sorry for Celia and Finding Cassie Crazy it focuses a little on family issues and overall is much sadder and less funny along the lines of Dreaming of Amelia but I recommend them all Although each one of them tells its own story I would say they are best enjoyed in the order as you will understand the references made #9 Aussie YA challenge 2011

H She memorizes class outlines to help her teachers She records transcripts of everything said around her She offers helpful critiues for her fellow students And she wears crazy nail polish to show she's a free spiritBut then Bindy's. The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie is my favorite Moriarty novel so far I guess I am now used to the author's writing style or maybe I can identify with Bindy better than with any other of her characters I only pray I wasn't uite like Bindy in my overachieving teen yearsBindy was introduced in Moriarty's previous books as an annoyingly smart student with killer typing skills She excels at everything she is very driven and thinks of herself as superior to other Ashbury students Only in her run for excellence she builds walls around herself and misses out on friendships with her peers As usual Moriarty's books are never just about teen issues there is always some kind of mystery or crime involved Same goes for this particular book This story is not just a sort of makeover tale in which Bindy realizes her wrongs and changes herself by becoming accessible to people around her but a murder mystery too and Bindy is at the center of itOnce again this novel has its signature Moriarty epistolary style and is made entirely out of notes memos and diaries It is hard to put down and it gives a great insight into teen minds I liked getting to know Bindy I enjoyed her nerd wit and her condescending ways but I also enjoyed finding out what exactly had made Bindy the way she wasSimply a great novel I am looking forward to the next Moriarty novel which is out this year and surprise surprise set in Ashbury High and has many of my old favorites in it
