The Unpredictability of Being Human – Linni Ingemundsen. Reviewed by Mango Bubbles Boy (12)

Malin is a 14 year old girl, who live is Norway. She lives with her messed up family. A dad who is forever shouting, a brother who is never there and a mum who is distant. Malin was dared to steal a chocolate bar from the local newsagents, by one of the popular girls at school, Malin would be rewarded with title as Prom Queen. She wasn’t popular, so she thought that this might be her chance. However….. She was caught. That was when she met Hanna, though.

At school, Malin had been asked the question, If you were God for a day, what would you do. Malin thought about writing, not stealing the chocolate bar (or attempting to), but then she wouldn’t have met Hanna. Malin thinks she is happy! But when Hanna starts hating Malin, it all crashes and burns.

Find out why Hanna dislikes Malin, and who the mysterious Ruben is, that I haven’t previously mentioned. And find out if Ruben likes Malin, like she likes him. Find out those, and a load of other stuff, in ‘The Unpredictability of Being Human’.

I think this books absolutely great! Like Banana Girl, I read it in two days. I loved the gripping-ness of stuff in it. And I love Ruben (it’s my real name!), is it a Norwegian name?

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the front cover? Isn’t it awesome!!
