There are no real words to say just how much I adored Kat, Incorrigable by Stephanie Burgis. This is one of those books that I really wish had been around when I was growing up as I know my 12 year old self would have LOVED it. Heck my much older than 12 year old self loved it so my parents would have probably needed to hide this book away so that I would…you know…eat…and do homework and be all sociable and stuff.
This book hooked me from the very first line…I mean seriously read it…isn’t it just filled with awesome? There is so much about the character of Kat that I loved. As the youngest sibling I was so able to relate to have older siblings who just didn’t understand. Older siblings can be so very frustrating. Yet despite that there was a strong bond with them and the love between them all really shown through…even when they were fighting. Because while a sister might call one sister a name…heaven forbid if a non-family member tries to do the same!
Kat is a strong, intelligent character and a great role model for those who read the books. She isn’t perfect, she makes mistakes but she’s also able to get herself out of trouble and she knows when to rely on others for aid. This book had several laugh out loud moments and a few that make you go awe. And most importantly its a book that you just want to live in. Kat is just so much fun I want to be 12 again and have her for my bosom buddy.
If you are looking for a fun, sassy read then I highly recommend Kat, Incorrigable this is a book that everyone can enjoy. And I, for one, am really looking forward to the mischief that Kat finds herself in next. So much so that I will probably be buying book two from the UK because I don’t think that I can wait until 2012 for the US release!
