Chelsea lives in Los Angeles with her mother. Miya lives in Tokyo in a children's home. Chelsea's precious brother disappeared three years ago. Miya lives to protect her brother. They both have an obsession with the same romantic manga. Both girls are interested in Gothic Lolita. The girls have never met or talked, but the two are connected in more ways than they realize.

Finding each other through a girl blogger site years before, each girl posted about their life and happenings. Each girl found an avid reader in the other. But they never left comments or talked. Now, three years later, Chelsea has stopped blogging completely and is feeling lost and alone without her brother. Miya lives in fear that someone will take her brother away and starts to plan their escape.

Now is the time when the girls need each other the most. Will they break down the barriers, open themselves up to who they really are, and help each other?

This is a fascinating tale of friendship and love. Told in alternating voices in short quick chapters, this tale reads like poetry. The story is accompanied by black and white photographs taken by the author that added a sense of mystery and beauty to the story.

I loved how the author unveiled more and more about each girl and the reader is able to uncover just how their lives are connected. It felt like I was slowly unwrapping a delicious candy bar but I could only have it piece by piece. This is a book to be savored.

I was not mystically thrilled. 27 novembre 2008
Par *Caligirl_08* - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
So, okay, I hate giving bad reviews so I am really trying hard to find a way to sugarcoat this one.

I think what the author was going for was to express this emotion of longing... longing for what? I guess... a soulmate? A friend that knows you so well that the two of you are almost like the same person?

Here is a quote from the first page of the book (which is written in FIRST PERSON PRESENT TENSE):

"do you ever wish you had someone (not the sky someone, but a real person) who could share in your reality?
there would be nowhere you couldn't go, down to the details of your last strange dream. you'd be in this game together, just you and the other person creating the entire world."

(Also, there are no capitalizations in the entire book...)

So the two main characters, Miya and Chelsea find each other through livejournal.com... oops I mean girlbloggers.com (which just happens to be the author's webpage.) Chelsea thinks Gothic Lolitas are awesome and Miya happens to be one (or pretends to be one on the internet anyways...)
But it doesn't really matter she's from Japan desu!!! So they bond... sort of... they never actually speak to each other they just lurk each others journals... And they both love this manga/comic book called Sailor Moon... oops I mean Shounen Rainbow Warriors.

AAAANYWAY....

the first several chapters are pretty incomprehensible it's almost like reading gibberish. you finally get the sense that you are reading the thoughts of two girls, Chelsea, a 15 year old half-Japanese girl from Los Angeles and Miya, a 15 year old girl from Japan. problem is, both girls write exactly the same way so that sometimes you have to keep going back just to make sure you're reading Miya or Chelsea. The writing is so disjointed that I really had trouble figuring out what was going on and even more trouble caring. (I am 29 years old, read a lot and have been to law school so I like to think I'm not an idiot, maybe I'm wrong.)

It seemed to me like Miya's father dumped Miya and her little brother in an orphanage and then died, I couldn't figure out whether the death scene happened in the orphanage or not. Then there was this creepy American woman living at the orphanage slobbering over all the little Japanese babies and there was this ominous tension like OH NO! DON'T LET HER TAKE AWAY MIYA'S KID BROTHER!! and then... you realize what's gonna happen at the end of the book even though you're only a few chapters in and you just cringe and go 'No way, it can't really be that obvious... can it?'

On the other side, Chelsea's whole thing was *~*~*~something happened to my brother 3 years ago and i cant tell you about it because this is a mystical thriller so i have to keep mentioning it and not telling you about it for the whole entire book...oh yeah and...elephant.~*~*~*

AND THEN!!!!

I'm not going to spoiler the ending. I just want to say how disappointed I was. Dakota Lane's other books have really high ratings and though I've never read them I expected this book to be good. I like looking at pictures of Gothic Lolita girls on the internet sometimes and I was really expecting this to be a book about them not some incomprehensible emo whinings of a grown woman trying to emulate the spirit of 15 year old girls.

She researched for three years but the book feels like she has never been to Japan. I really feel like she just sat in front of her computer and stared at pictures for 3 years.

Looking forward to seeing the film version 29 décembre 2008
Par Tamar Senyak - Publié sur Amazon.com

Dakota Lane continues to create characters that draw her audiences into their dark and poignant worlds with awe and respect for their braveness in the face of tragic loss in her newest young adult novel Gothic Lolita. Understanding how the lives of the two young protagonists connect keeps the reader's suspense, and in Lane's poetic writing, the experience is haunting and magical. As a New York City public school teacher, I would recommend use of this work for literacy curriculum, in particular for multicultural literature, as this type is sorely underrepresented.

Not really a thriller. 21 mai 2009
Par Lauryn Angel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Gothic Lolita is a very quick read, and I found it very intriguing. The story is told in an interesting style with the alternating narratives. I have to admit,though, that the choppy fragmented paragraphs and the numerous grammatical errors drove me crazy. I wasn't particularly moved by the story, and I didn't find it at all thrilling. However, I am not in the target audience for this book.

A page turner 22 janvier 2009

My teen was pleasantly surprised to receive this. A novel about friendship. Friends who met each other through blogging. Both love gothic lolitas and both has never met each other in person. Has pictures in it that are very eye catching and not your usual drawings. A very good read she says and has already given it to another friend who loved it also.

From a different viewpoint.... 23 décembre 2008
Par Reading It All - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
To say I enjoyed this book seems a little dark to me - the whole concept of teen angst and the darkness that surrounds some teens is explored in an innovative way in this book by Dakota Lane.

Blogs are a huge part of our online world today and this book looks at the random yet meaningful attraction of two bloggers - thousands of miles and cultures away from each other.

It really hurt to see the depth of the darkness these girls try to work out through their writing - in my day we journaled and kept it private! But I guess with all the things teens deal with today and the inablility of working parents to stay in touch - it truly does take a village.

These girls find that with all their difference they are connected.
