Alas, I found it mediocre and some of the writing just down right silly.
Handcuffs by Bethany Griffin
The plot meandered and I’m not really handduffs that sure what the central idea was for the story. Oct 26, Carmen Rodrigues rated it it was amazing.
This wickedly-humorous novel will have you rooting for its heroine, ice princess Parker Prescott. Make sure to settle into a comfortable chair because once betjany pick up this book, you won’t want to set it down.
Griffin is a fresh new voice in the world of young adult literature! Apr 29, Dana J. Moore rated it it was ok Shelves: Honestly, I’m not sure this book is worth the time it’s gonna take me to review it. So I’m keeping this brief. This is not a book about handcuffs. If ever there was an asinine title, this is it. I read the blurb and the bethxny is that Parker’s beethany bringing handcuffs over is the catalyst to some crazy story. I thought he came over and kidnapped her or something. I was all ready for a thrill.
So it’s not that she’s not good with words. I think hriffin could be, but her storytelling is Will Parker’s obsession with her ex-boyfriend mean she finally gives in and has sex with him even though he doesn’t love her? And will he love her if she does it? Will Parker’s parents get their ish together or will they lose their house and have to move and ruin Parker’s life forever? Will Parker’s sister Handcurfs prove herself to be a human being or just stay a mean, heartless slut?
It doesn’t affect the character at all. And it doesn’t inform the reader at all. The message here is: No payoff for all that build-up.
This here is why the story loses bu many points for me. It doesn’t serve any purpose, and if you’re going to commit to a bit like that it bethny needs to serve a literary purpose. And also what are we supposed to think of him? He’s dark and mysterious. He’s too many things at once and I don’t feel his character was fully developed at all. I guess the point is to see him through the lens of Parker’s obsession, but I can’t believe in her when she’s I guess dad gets a job and they get to stay in the house they bethayn afford?
This was also somewhat anticlimactic. More like – we’re rounding the end of the book, let’s slap a good ending on this. No surprises whatsoever with the West and Kyle thing. But still mildly interesting.
The Ice Princess thing was stupid. Let’s get that straight. A title with the word “princess” bethanu something different from a shy tongue-tied year-old who is considered the good girl.
Handcurfs book could more accurately be called Obsession. And in the end, she apparently changed or something, but particularly when it comes to her boyfriend, I didn’t really see her change. So I don’t buy it. PG for language and sexual content. I’ve definitely read worse. But this was a waste of time. View all 3 comments.
Nov 20, Beth rated it really liked it Shelves: This was an excellent book. All the better for being, a rare thing in teenage fiction, subtle.
I’m not a huge sexual chemistry fan or a romance betjanybut I felt it here. That being said, I was amazingly glad that the love interest ended the way it did. That was realistic and mature, because it just was never going to happen. It felt sad and real.
I just adored little brother Prescott and the relationship Parker had with him was heart-melting without being unrealistic. I loved Kyle and Marian too, even though I know Parker cast Marian in the role of a bitch all the bethsny.
I would have liked to see more of them and the way Griffin created realistic three-dimensional characters from apparent stereotypes is just perfect. One thing that bugged me? Their love for Radiohead.
I don’t personally like Radiohead, but I can get past that. The problem I had with it is that bj didn’t feel like a very Parker thing to appreciate, and I could tell that Griffin herself was a Radiohead fan.
It was just an unnecessary self-insertion, but it wasn’t continued hriffin anything so I could forgive it. Also, Parker and her love interest annoyed me at times, and not just in a “they’re teenagers” way, but no biggie. Still, a great book that deals with romance in such a mature way. I want to have a few stern words with whoever compared Bethany Griffin to Sarah Dessen on the front cover.
Griffin is no Dessen – Dessen could never be this realistic, honest, careful and subtle and deep.
