You Are SO Cursed! by Naomi Nash
Smooch, 2004, 198 pages
I remember once being told that if someone is giving you criticism, it is because they are invested and want you to improve. This usually means you see some potential there. For these reasons, my review for You Are So Cursed! will be short.
The saving grace of You Are So Cursed! was its length. Like this review, the book, too, was brief. And that’s really all I can say about that. I try not to be too harsh, but I couldn’t think of a single thing that I actually liked about this book. The characters were poorly developed, the plot was not intriguing, the writing was dry, the concept was trite, and there were multiple instances of slut-shaming or general misogyny. The book also felt incredibly dated – I could tell I was reading something that might have appealed (at least in clichéd content) to early-2000s teens (or, you know, middle school me). But today? Definitely not quality literature.
