Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is one of those books that I think is best just to read for fun and not overthink. When I first finished the book, I really enjoyed it for the reasons I’ll get to shortly, but now that I’m working on a review, I keep finding things that, the more I analyze them, the less I enjoy this book. I still like it enough that I want to keep reading the series, and I will definitely add it to my personal library at the school for my kids to read, but I do have some questions as to how strong the message is for young female readers.

I don’t know why I make promises I can’t keep around this time of year. It’s invariably the most stressful time of year for me. Not only is there the STAAR test, but there’s the normal Spring Time dating drama, or, rather, the lack-of-dating drama, that seems to get to me when I find myself dateless around this time of year. There’s the normal bill crunch as I find myself spending more to keep myself sane while I try to survive the STAAR test, and not absolutely crash.
And, lately, there’s a new focus on all the ways my Autism comes through. Like, now that I’ve had a couple of years to start to understand what exactly having “Aspergers”(though the term seems to be less acceptable recently) means, I’m seeing more and more ways that it manifests that I didn’t realize were different from how other people live.

Per request, I’m writing a post… since I’ve been a little AWOL lately. I was trying not to jinx things with the Knight, but turns out there wasn’t anything to jinx.
