Présentation de l'éditeur

The Shoplifters Anonymous meetings that sixteen-year-old Moe is forced to attend are usually punctuated by the snores of an old man and the whining of the world's unhappiest housewife. Until the day that Tabitha Foster and Elodie Shaw walk in. Tabitha has just about everything she wants: money, friends, popularity, a hot boyfriend who worships her...and clearly a yen for stealing. So does Elodie, who, despite her goodie-two-shoes attitude pretty much has "klepto" written across her forehead in indelible marker. But both of them are nothing compared to Moe, a bad girl with an even worse reputation.

Tabitha, Elodie, and Moe: a beauty queen, a wallflower, and a burnout-a more unlikely trio high school has rarely seen. And yet, when Tabitha challenges them to a steal-off, so begins a strange alliance linked by the thrill of stealing and the reasons that spawn it.

Hollywood screenwriter Kirsten Smith tells this story from multiple perspectives with humor and warmth as three very different girls who are supposed to be learning the steps to recovery end up learning the rules of friendship.

Wonderful variety of prose, choppy senetnces, and modern poetry 28 octobre 2014
Par YA Book Madness Blog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Each section is written in a style unique to the character, creating a wonderful variety of prose, choppy sentences that read like modern poetry, and blurbs of epiphany-esque introspection.

The girls are labeled with clichéd, stereotypically high school tags-the beauty queen, the wallflower, and the burnout. Normally this would be a negative, overused and tired method that is somewhat expected. However, by enforcing this process like it's a form of nomenclature and the suppositions that accompany them, it amplifies what separates them from their peers, and really reinforces the notion that there's so much more to a person than their clique, their style, and their mannerisms. The characters are not overly complex but no matter how much money they have, whether they come from a single parent home or an unhappily married couple, each has their own problems that puts everyone on even ground.

Moe has a delightfully, dirty and twisted sense of humor. Her pranks and rambunctious rebellious side are one of the main highlights of the story.

CONS:

One of my issues with stories told from several perspectives is that it's hard to evenly spread out the story between each character.

It felt like Tabitha definitely had a larger part than Elodie, which although fitting with their personalities, a balance would have given more insight into each character, not just Elodie. It seemed a little like a main character, with her secondary supplements.

Some things went unresolved. Several things that should have been very serious were shrugged off and skimmed over. The emotions of each girl were so skewed, they felt almost numb and it was difficult to emotionally commit to the characters.

The whole therapy process of shopaholics anonymous wasn't as in-depth or focused as it should have been. Really it was a bunch of bored girls, waiting for the moment it could end until they could go steal some Betsey Johnson. It also didn't go into enough detail on why they felt the need to shoplift.

TRINKETS is a beautifully told story of friendship between three girls who, despite their outward differences, ultimately help each other discover the people they truly are. Touching, hilarious, and real.

Sharp, wise and funny -- with real observations about girls surviving and thriving through their high school years. An engaging hook that unfolds into a worthwhile literate read. I'll be recommending this one for a long time. One of the best TYA novels of the year --

Definitely interesting 2 mai 2013
Par T. Geo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Three girls who go to the same high school but are not friends end up in shoplifters anonymous and discover sometimes circumstances make friendships. This book was a fast read because one of the 3 main characters speaks in poetic verse. I liked all three main characters, Tabitha, Elodie & Moe and reading about each of their struggles made them come to life for me.

I think had seen this book around as an upcoming 2013 release but it really got my attention when one of my favorite bloggers reviewed it (obviously I'm talking about Jen Ryland/YA Romantics). Her mention of its glossy portrayal of shoplifting and its aftereffects as well as the healthy dose of humor drew me to this book. Additionally there was the promise of strong female friendship and sweet romances. We so often agree and I had a good feeling about this.

All the aforementioned elements are present and I flew through this cute book. Not surprisingly Smith co-wrote some of my favorite films: 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde, Ella Enchanted, and She's the Man in addition to other films and writing. While reading I just felt so comforted

The book is told through three alternating perspectives: poetic Elodie whose chapters are told in verse (which always makes for fast reading); spoiled popular Tabitha; and burnout rebel Moe. On the surface these girls are unlikely to even meet, let alone become friends. But that's exactly what happens when they're all enrolled in Shoplifters Anonymous and set a challenge to see who can steal the most; yeah, these girls aren't very repentant. Fortunately as the story moves, they do start to feel some guilt, they all make some pretty big changes in their lives, and all three become embroiled in very cute love stories.

These was just the kind of book I was craving-a light, frothy fast read that makes me smile while also demonstrating tremendous character growth. All of the girls steal and have problems with their parents and their friends (the first problem is a bit unusual but the other two are fairly common). Through their friendship, they discover what good friends look like, they confront the problems they have with their parents, and they reform themselves, donating their stolen goods to charity.

Overall: A very sweet satisfying story-if you liked the movies I mentioned above, you'll probably enjoy this book a lot.
