    1. Julie Klausner Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Art Girls Are Easy book, this is one of the most wanted Julie Klausner author readers around the world.

    2. To the shitheel reviewers on here trying to peel this book's skin off and dunk it in acid: go die. This was a first novel. Frikken brilliant hero of America John Green's first novel sucked in exactly the same ways--this is what it looks like when a careful, intelligent author with excellent technical proficiency grapples to find the heart of the material. For Green he oohed and aahed too much at how precious and marvelous girls can be, for Julie she hissed. This woman is going down in the histor [...]

    3. The first line of this book reads: “Indigo Hamlisch stared out of the window of her father’s gray Mercedes Coupe and thought about sex.”Personally I find this opening tasteless, like it’s attempting to be shocking and edgy but failing miserably, kind of like the wannabe screaming vulgar things at an intimate concert in an attempt to be cool and being met with dead silence by the much classier crowd. However, after suffering through the whole book, I duly acknowledge the utter appropriate [...]

    4. I had originally rated this (in my head) a solid one-star, but then as the book progressed and the name brand-dropping slowed to a trickle, I didn't loathe it as much as I had and perhaps bumped it up to a 1.5. But then after writing a review it might be a one again.The story is completely predictable and based on "misunderstandings." You can guess within the first twenty pages what is going to happen, and then you are going to be right. There are no surprises here, none, not one. The only reaso [...]

    5. Stopped at: 7% I will read any and all books that deal with summer camps because I have never been to summer camp in my life. I never knew about it when I was younger and by the time I learned what they were, we couldn’t afford it. So when I first got the chance to read this book, I was incredibly excited. The cover was gorgeous and the summary was great and lets not forget the art bit. What I got, on the other hand, was a pretentious, annoying fifteen-year-old rich girl who was more intereste [...]

    6. I read this book because I really really like Julie Klausner. I feel like I sort of forgot that it was a YOUNG ADULT novel, which was why it made me shudder a few times. Had I read the book 14 years ago, I would have loved it and it would have inspired me. It was truly written for it's audience, which means as grown ups we probably shouldn't love it 100% because 15 year olds are mostly gross and weird, however rating it one star just because it's below our reading and emotional maturity level is [...]

    7. Good books about shallow topics have been written. This does not qualify. I could rant about a lot of things I disliked: the over reliance on physical description, the 'it's all a great misunderstanding' plot devices, the lack of depth of even the main character but really it all boils down to the fact that this story, maybe even this type of story is just not my bag. There's not really even enough to rant about.

    8. Indigo wins the 'most irritating, self-obsessed, entitled character' award. She's kind of the worst. She is judgmental of everyone she encounters, and even though she doesn't often give voice to all of her critical thoughts, she thinks really rude things about people. She's mean on the inside, where it counts the most. Gross. I hated that she put in one single day of hard work on her art project on the last day of camp and won that big showcase award. The. Worst. Just didn't care for this book a [...]

    9. While this is by no means a thought provoking, deep read. It is a quick, fun story any one who has ever been 15 year old girl can relate to. Indy is the every- girl. Torn between pursuing her dreams, and trying to fit in. She experiences heartbreak, and learns the importance of true friendship. The story seems cliche at times, but it is a good reminder of how hard times make us appreciate the good around us.

    10. I've been a fan of Julie Klausner since I read her memoir, I Don't Care About Your Band, so I figured I'd pick up her YA novel for a fun afternoon read. Overall, it was an entertaining read with a somewhat disappointing ending. I think the book deals with teen issues (such as sexuality, drug & alcohol use, body image, etc.) in a fairly tactful and realistic manner - not sensationalist or Afterschool Special-y - and I appreciated the themes of female friendship, even if this wasn't always exe [...]

    11. It’s trying to be so many things all at once, but fails so miserably at whatever it was gunning for. Because what was this about really? The blurb says something, something or other on being best friends. So, now we have the best friend but not friends thing that Lucy and Indy are going through. Indy is talented protégé to Lucy’s beautiful girl role. There’s a change in who they are for each other and the reactions that Lucy has to that change are sad and depressing… with her doing all [...]

    12. This is a great example of the difference and significance of a Hipster vs. a person from/part of the community. AGAE is a Hipster. It is doing everything it can to put of this image off cool like talking about sex openly, but without depth. Instead, it's tasteless and annoying. The "substance" of this book is this idea of artsy characters with mystery and originality without any actual story to tell or original thought to share. Do I think this book could have had some potential? Yes, actually, [...]

    13. Yeah, this book isn't great. In all fairness to Klausner, I think she did a pretty good job of approximating the tone and general themes of young adult fiction -- I asked a friend of mine who is a more avid reader of YA if a key plot point in the book was a common theme in YA, and she confirmed it was -- but there's something really awkward about this particular story. There is obviously a lot going on in terms of sexuality as a teenager, something that I think Klausner does a decent job of tapp [...]

    14. I saw this book sitting on a shelf at the library and I was immediately drawn to it. The story itself is okay. It's all about misunderstandings, and what happens when you don't trust your friends, and a lesson is learned about not always jumping to conclusions based on what you see. It has a lot of upper class kids all together at "summer camp", although this version of summer camp includes AC, and no cabins like other camps have. It's an art camp for the rich kids. I did not feel a strong conne [...]

    15. Why’d I Pick This Book To Read?:Friends, Art Girls Are Easy by Julie Klausner was SO appealing to me. First, that cover is gorgeous, I love the sunglasses and the fierce lipstick. Second, I love books about characters who have a passion, especially if that passion is art. Third, there is totally not enough summer camp in YA, so that little phrase immediately appealed to me. I loved camp when I went, from cabin rivalries, to bonfires, to color war.You can find out why I DNFed by clicking hereFY [...]

    16. I'm not the target audience for this one (read: I am old), but I downloaded it based on the preview and was disappointed with it as a whole--it's like it can't decide whether it's a satire or a super earnest coming of age story. I was also turned off by the narrator's constant focus on the body types of all the characters--it was always shoved in our faces that the mean girl is "anorexic" and the unpopular girl is overweight. Tired and disappointing.

    17. I love Julie Klausner, and I really wanted to like this, but it just wasn't quite there. There's potential, for sure, but I wasn't sure what age the actual intended reader of this book was supposed to be. Like, the entire character of Yvonne? And all the body hate, it was hard to get through. There are good ideas here, but it just doesn't come together.

    18. I am torn between 3 and 4 stars. I really enjoyed the honesty in how the authors described the confusion and chaos of being 15 and thinking every move you make is being observed and judged. But on the other hand at times the whole, privileged rich kids at super fancy art camp become heavy and distracting. Overall it was good with maybe a little too wrapped up ending.

    20. I wanted to read her memoir but opted for what was available for loan as an ebook from the library. Young adult, not my favorite. Two because she doesn't end up with the boy in the end ( sors for the spoiler! )

    21. I really and truly adore Julie Klausner, but this was a very forgettable read. it almost read like a parody of a YA novel, but not enough to be funny. and certainly didn't feel like her normal voice at all. disappointing

    22. The best book I've read since The Power Broker. Why aren't more humans talking about this book?

    23. Just in case there is anyone in my life who doesn't already know: I love (or in this case really like) everything Julie Klausner does/says/posts/performs.
