associated with how depression works and if that was what the author was going for I feel like she didn t really get it right If it wasn t, I feel like it s kind of a mockery to those who do suffer from it I liked the mystery but it seems a bit cliche, which usually never happens with me I ll read a trope I love about 50 million times but I knew what was happening while at the same time I was quite confused lol I don t really think a book has ever done that to me I knew where the plot was going but at the same time I really didn t understand what was happening.Robin just didn t seem like a real person, she wasn t relatable which I m assuming is what the author was aiming for some of her dialogue was quite funny though I don t understand how she just up and leaves for Nova Scotia withoutreallytelling anyone I actually don t even really know how old she is Levi s character is just way too convenient for my liking though I get the whole parallel thing but idk it doesn t sit well with me Mimi is a whole nother story I just, I don t understand how she view spoiler shared custody of a child with a man who wasn t her fatherI get that the secret had to be a big deal but if she hated the man so much then what was with the sharing custody OR with the accidentally stealing Rosie s wallet, or accidentally never giving the money back or accidentally being the daughter of that man Like it s just idk too many things had to have gone exactly right for this to have happened hide spoiler In the end I wouldn t say this book was horrible, it wasn t outstanding or anything to really recommend but I did finish it and I wouldn t exactlysteerpeople away from it I m not one to finish books I hate so that must mean something Overall, I wouldn t reread it and I ll probably end up sending my copy to a friend or donating it This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Ehh It was OK It s a good waste of time I have to say I really like the

Anyways, if you want to pass the time, read this book 3.5 stars such a cute and easy read Really enjoyed the characters and the plot twist at the end was good I d read all Austen s books a million times I practically knew them by heart I m always interested in characters who say things like that I really enjoyed this novel and I m glad I picked it up right after I read Vicki Grant s newest

Packing her bags to leave New York City, she lands in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada As she tries search for her mother s real identity, Robin unexpectedly runs into romance and the buried secrets that made Mimi a celebrity today Vicki Grant is a favourite Canadian author of mine I absolutely love her novel for preteens, Quid Quo Pro, which is full of delightful humour that kids and adults can both enjoy Most of her novels, however, are for reluctant readers, which are all quite short and simple So when I saw Not Suitable for Family Viewing, I had to get it Compared to Quid Quo Pro, there was not a load of in your face humour Instead, the funny stuff were done subtly I love the atmosphere of this novel as it is very contemporary.I pitied Robin in the beginning and there were a couple of times where she lightly touched my nerves, but overall I loved her as a character She is very realistic and I liked how instead being the type of person who uses her mother s fame to her advantage, she is very withdrawn and knows that those who befriends her uses her Her relationship with pretty much her only friend, Selena, is quite tight Although Selena acts like she doesn t care, she comes around in the end to aid an old friend.I found Robin s time in Nova Scotia to be very charming and new Her first meeting with her boyfriend to be, Levi, was absolutely hilarious Their relationship is absolutely adorable and not overexaggerated It was nice for once to see that a novel was not wholeheartedly based on the romance because the main story was trying to find out who Robin s mother really is.Not Suitable for Family Viewing is such a page turner, where contemporary book fans will devour it in an instant The ending will take readers by surprise and glee for that it is done amazingly well with uniqueness and love A recommendation for all girl readers and realism fans Reviewed by Rachel SeigelRobin Schwartz should be happy With famous talk show host Mimi Schwartz for

a tiny Nova Scotian fishing village where she discovers love, the truth of her background, and the startling secret that helped to make her mother a star Vicki Grant s latest novel for teens is part mystery, part romance, and a humorous and thought provoking read Readers will be immediately intrigued by Robin She has money and means, and the opportunity to be happy, but she appears to be deliberately miserable She is friendless, uninterested and sarcastic, and she can barely bring herself to get up off the couch As the novel progresses, readers discover that Robin is much deeper than she appears She struggles with body issues and, despite having everything, she feels lonely, and abandoned by her mom As Robin gets further along in her quest to solve the mystery of the ring, she discovers a great deal about herself, and is finally able to forge a tentative connection with her mother What really makes this novel work is the humour that Grant infuses into the story With so many heavy, issue based books on the market for teens, it s refreshing to read a book that makes you laugh out loud, without becoming silly or losing sight of the message Excerpts from Mimi s talk show lead into each chapter, and they are both revealing and entertaining Teens who are looking for a lighthearted and entertaining read will enjoy this novel, and thanks to Grant s mastery, will come away having learned some valuable lessons as well Canadian Children s Book News Winter 2010, Vol 33, No 1 3.5 starsI was in the mood for a contemporary, so I picked this one up off my shelf I wasn t sure what to think of it for a lot of the time In the beginning I was interested, but that sort of dropped off a little in the middle, and then toward the end Yeah, it definitely had my attention again And I can tell that a solid story has been told, because I m still thinking about the community and its history a few hours after finishing the book.The romance in the book is not as big a part of the 3.5 starsI was in the mood for a contemporary, so I picked this one up off my shelf I wasn t sure what to think of it for a lot of the time In the beginning I was interested, but that sort of dropped off a little in the middle, and then toward the end Yeah, it definitely had my attention again And I can tell that a solid story has been told, because I m still thinking about the community and its history a few hours after finishing the book.The romance in the book is not as big a part of the story as the cover would make you believe, but it is a cute part Levi s pretty adorable, and I wish I could have heard his accent every time I read his lines, but apparently I m not that good at imagining an East Coast accent So yes, Robin and Levi are pretty cute, and they have some hilarious scenes together, but they re not the heart of the book.The best thing about this book, I think, is the setting small town Nova Scotia and mystery of Robin s family background, which is all wrapped up in the history of the area I also enjoyed all the characters that Robin meets in Shelton I had guesses about who Mimi was, or what exactly went on, but I have to say that I didn t totally guess all the details some of them, yes, but not all of them until right when Robin was figuring everything out.This is an enjoyable book overall, and it s pretty unique, both for the subject matter and especially for the setting.P.S Random, but it took me a while to figure out why the talk show was called You, You and Mimi I was like why are there two YOUs long pause Ohhhhh, you you and me me Yah Got it
