FirecrackerCh politician who makes his money building nuclear warheadsIt's all good until We think you should go to the public school Dad said This was just a horrible mean thing to say Just hearing the words public school out loud made my mouth taste like urine which not coincidentally is exactly how the p Firecracker is the story of Astrid Krieger a seventeen year old girl who lives in a disused rocket ship on her parents' estate because she has just been expelled from her posho boarding school for breaking into the dean's office and stealing test papers To teach her a lesson her family decide to send her to the local public high school where she meets Noah a socially awkward boy with a great line in seventies shirts and Lucy a hair chewing loser As Astrid finds her feet in her new school that smells of urine unlike her old school which smelled of diamond earrings she starts building a plan for revenge on whoever it was who set her upOkay the first thing to say about Firecracker is that I really really enjoyed it The second thing to say is that it won't be everyone's cup of teaThe main thing that will put some people off is the MC Astrid is arrogant obnoxious power crazed rude misanthropic and slightly sociopathic and yet for me she totally worked as a character She has no morals whatsoever but she does have standards For instance she has no problem smooshing a Twinkie between her hands and wiping it in the chief bully's hair in the middle of the school cafeteria but she would never ever do the same thing to the socially inept hair chewing loser That's not coolShe does grow as a character as the book progresses and we find out a little about exactly why she's so very chippy and unpleasant but she doesn't do a complete personality one eighty and start wearing a hair shirt for all her past misdeeds I was glad of this because I think it would have weakened her as a character Instead she develops new ways of looking at life whilst retaining her hilarious snarkinessI liked Astrid and Noah's relationship and the way she lowers her defences a teeny tiny bit to get to know him but never gets all lovey dovey In fact I just generally liked Noah He wasn't like a Book Boyfriend or anything but he was exactly the right compliment for AstridThe plot isn't anything groundbreaking it's kind of a classic tale of loss of something important gradual adjustment to new circumstances followed by big revealbetrayal and then a kind of be careful what you wish for moral but the story is interspersed with so many great anecdotes and asides usually about Bharani princes or shady politicians that it actually becomes something pretty specialAnother thing that shines the plot up is the writing which is superb Isersen has a really cool way of writing that's slightly off the wall and yet descriptively spot on and he can be truly hilarious at times This book actually had me laughing out loud in that irritating way people do when they're reading a funny book in the company of someone else and the other person keeps asking what's so funny and the laughing person just goes 'Oh it's something funny in this book But it's the context If I say it out loud it won't sound funny' That was me last night reading this book Now I have to give fair warning there's a love triangle in Firecracker But it's such a ridiculous love triangle that it made me laugh rather than throw the book across the room I doubt anyone is going to be putting up a Team Pierre icon on the sidebar of their blogSo yeah Firecracker was a really fun read If you're looking for something serious and profound that rocks your world and makes you uestion your metaphysical existance then it may not be the book for you If you're looking for something to take to the beach and laugh irritatingly at then you should pick it up

Being Astrid Krieger is absolutely all it's cracked up to beShe lives in a rocket ship in the backyard of her parents' estateShe was kicked out of the elite Bristol Academy and she's intent on her own special kind of revenge to whomever betrayed herShe only loves her grandfather an incredibly ri Can't remember the last time a book has made me laugh as hard and painfully as this one didETA reviewAstrid Krieger is a trouble maker And a hilarious one at that She's both admired and a little feared as a notorious one woman show that loves to break the rules Until she gets caught and thrown out of yet another private school Her uber rich family then decides it would be a wise decision to give Astrid a taste of what it means to be without the privileges and independence their money gives so they enroll her in public school Not only is this supposed to serve as a wake up call but it's clear this lesson is meant to lead her to well grow up Of course true to the title Astrid is a uite the firecracker and it's going to take than switching a big fancy school out for an ordinary one to change her Cue the Astrid style chaos antics and schemes of epic proportions This book is seriously awesome And hilarious Hilariously awesome It is just filled with my kind of humor I almost understand the not so stellar reviews it's gotten instead of the raving fangirl suees I think it deserves I have an odd almost offensive taste for the funny and uite often what I see as a ROTFL kind of joke isn't so much the case for others If you have a laid back sense of humor and want a nice change up from the usual YA protagonist Firecracker is the book to pick up I'd even recommend it to fans of Courtney Summers that love her MC voices but want something a little or um A LOT lighter and fun for summer and beach reading And it's especially for those like myself who like character driven stories It has less conflict I guess you can say than many other YA books and your constant need to turn the pages comes from wanting to know what Astrid is going to think or say how she's going to react rather than wanting to see how things play out and end; it's all about the hilarious and wild journey Astrid takes you on not the ultimate place her endeavors lead to Basically in total opposition to what her family is trying to teach her about life throughout the story it's all about Astrid she runs the show And I wouldn't have it any other way
