Review: Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph

Released: May 5, 2009
Publisher: MTV Books
Rated: YA
Buy: Amazon
High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare....

What I thought

I absolutely loved this! I had a really hard time putting this down until I read every last word! Tere is such a great character who is so shy, people think she's deaf and mute. But her dream is to be a DJ, where speaking is pretty essential. I was pretty shy in high school, not quite as bad as Tere, but I was able to really identify with her and what she felt when it came to talking to or in front of people. I knew what she was going through and was excited when she pulled through.

I am not a fan of rap or the music that Tere listens to. While it plays a huge role for the book, it doesn't come up in a way that had me rolling my eyes or anything. It was important, but in the background. I really liked watching Sweet T come into her own when offered the chance at spreading her wings a bit and shining.

I'm not going to lie, I loved the whole idea behind this even if Tere didn't. I really had hoped for the best with the contest. It's a huge deal for Tere, who has had control ripped from her when it came to Prom. Loved the contest and loved the ending. It was brilliant and romantic and gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling on the inside. This needs to be on your to be read list, wishlist or buy list!
