A very "realistic" plot as most girls would have experience such a romance once during their teenage years.

And also, it is not your typical kind of novel with never ending sentences and bombastic words. Simple, plain and easy to read. Suitable for all ages without too much explicity and all, but able to convey the confusion that most teenagers experience in a relationship.

Good work!

Jess C. Scott's debut novel is more than outstanding. It proves that there could be a useful reason for blogging. It's certainly difficult to add to the reviews already given since they tell the wonders of his book far better than I good but... Eyelash tells the story of a seventeen year old girl coming into a difficult part of her life in a tech-world such as we live in today and much like any teenager she blogs. I found the way this story is told very interesting and not hard to follow as I feared it might be. Jade is a compelling character that I'm sure many girls her age will understand. It's a YA title that can be read by those older and still be well received and enjoyed. Brilliant work for this first time author!

I sat down to read the first twenty pages or so of EYELEASH and ended up reading the entire novel. The blog/IM style it's written in helps keep up the pace-I had to know how everything between Jade and Novan turned out! I enjoyed the way the author used the nuances of things such as file names to complete the characterization. This added humor and humility to these young adults who, as they are prone to be, were full of teenage angst and confusion at times. At several points while reading EYELEASH I felt like I was experiencing a YA Bridget Jones' Diary.

This book is excellent! Very funny, very true to life, and written in an experimental blog-format. Cutting edge stuff! This is the 'Bridget Jones' Diary' for the 21st Century!! It's been a while since I was a teenager, but I do try to keep up to date with what's happening in the teen world through relatives and friends. I found this book was a great way of bringing to the forefront many issues which concern teenagers these days. There are a lot of references to sex, but I feel this is necessary, in order to get certain messages across to teenagers. I like the idea of using a protagonist who is a virgin to show how teenagers feel peer pressure to have sex at an early age; and also the way the author has used 'cool' characters to send a positive message that relationships are much more about who you can trust rather than about looks and sex.
Seventeen year-old Jade is in love with Novan, but she's not really sure if she is in love with him. She used to go to school with him, and she knows he fancied her then. When she meets Novan again, years later, he is a good looking bass player and she begins to correspond by email with him. Her feelings for him start to grow, but she is confused. Jade keeps a private blog, instead of a diary, setting out her thoughts and feelings. I think the author has done a great job, getting into the mind of a teenager, and has written a book containing many positive messages for teens. It's written in a language that they will understand, and deals with a lot of issues they are facing; very modern, lots of text abbreviated words (I had to look up a lot of these like: ROFL!!). It's the story of one girl's transition from child/teen to adult, and is written in a very humourous way. There are signs of comic genius in this writer. I really enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it, not only to teens, but to anyone who has ever really been a teenager!!
