LOVESICK JAKE COBURN PDF

But as I got into it, I liked it more. It only gets 3 stars from me because of my feelings at the beginning, and some issues I had with characters, especially Michael. I think we need to be careful about such easy answers. January 1, Sandra Strange Yuck. The premise of the book is unbelievable: a millionaire "hires" a young man, who has messed up his life by his alcoholism, to trail his bulimic daughter.

But as I got into it, I liked it more. It only gets 3 stars from me because of my feelings at the beginning, and some issues I had with characters, especially Michael. I think we need to be careful about such easy answers. January 1, Sandra Strange Yuck. The premise of the book is unbelievable: a millionaire "hires" a young man, who has messed up his life by his alcoholism, to trail his bulimic daughter.

The young man, predictably, falls in love with the girl, and chaos results. The explicit sex and prevalent bad language really marred the story for me.

Not recommended for anyone. January 1, Jasmine So this is a good book, bordering on unbelievable but still quite good. I really like the portrayal of AA. Even today, I drink some, I use to So this is a good book, bordering on unbelievable but still quite good. Even today, I drink some, I use to smoke cigarettes when I felt like it, but people act like not finishing a beer is akin to murder, sometimes things that matter and "things that matter" have nothing to do with each other.

This book is kind of about what happens when your life is consumed by things that actually matter and how lonely that can be surrounded by "normal people" for whom only the "things that matter" are noticeable. If you know what I mean. January 1, Amelia Overall, this book turned some completely unexpected turns and kept me on the edge of my seat. Ted is an alcoholic who lost his leg in a basketball incident, taking away his full ride to college. Not only does Ted accept the offer, he ends up cherishing the friendship he builds up with her and starts to be distant in his report emails.

Michael Overall, this book turned some completely unexpected turns and kept me on the edge of my seat. Michael gets very mad and starts to threaten him. What made me shocked is the strong bond that is formed between Ted and Erica and how open Erica is with him despite her struggles. I am also very surprised by Michaels actions at the end towards Ted even though he did so much for him. I am very happy that Erica got some help she needed from someone besides her therapist.

January 1, mfay2 I should start by saying that according to the author, this book is based on a true story. The book is about this guy named Ted York, a high school graduate that had everything going for him. He played basketball and even had a scholarship for college. And during one short trip to pick up a drink, he got into a bad car accide I should start by saying that according to the author, this book is based on a true story. And during one short trip to pick up a drink, he got into a bad car accident that damaged his knee.

And just like that, his scholarship was taken from him. Now he goes to work and attends AA Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. And he feels stuck, with nowhere to go. But one day, a man named Michael knocks on his door with the opportunity of a lifetime. He would go to college, with all expenses paid, if only he would be the look out for this rich girl, Erica. Sounds easy enough, right? Erica has bulimia and his father wants to make sure that she could handle being in college by herself.

So, Ted after asking questions and talking to his dad about it, accepts the offer and that decision would change his life forever. Okay, a Young Adult book that takes place in college? I love it already! The plot was so interesting and unique! The story is told very creatively.

It takes place from August to November. The book is very descriptive, but not in a bad way. I love how the author told the story. I mean, in the beginning it was great, normal and slow building. That was to be expected. But then something happened and they both had feelings for each other, and it felt rushed and I was like, "Huh?

When did that happened? I just wish we had more biuld up to their relationship. I was so into it in the last chapters. Definitely worth checking out. January 1, Kelseysterk LoveSick was a very inspiring book for me. It starts out slow and begins to pick up the pace after the first 3 chapters.

A teenage guy named Ted is a basketball player at a local high school, and very very talented on the court. He has everything going for him, and a college scholarship lined up for him to play ball at a decent college.

But it all ends one fateful night when Ted gets involved in a drunk driving accident. His life becomes ruined and he loses his basketball scholarship, and ends u LoveSick was a very inspiring book for me. His life becomes ruined and he loses his basketball scholarship, and ends up being forced to attend AA meetings with other troublesome people. Just when Ted has given up on life, an unexpected visitor appears at his doorstep. Michael, the wealthy father of a bulimic Manhattan rich girl has a tempting proposition.

Ted sees this as a simple task, but he never would have expected to fall in love. The book contains a lot of symbolism, and its clear language makes it easy to understand and comprehend. The tone is moderate, never forceful, but lightly put. Some of the rhetorical devices used included hyperbole, alliteration and antithesis. Coburn included a lot of parellism in his book, when leading up to the final climax in his story. This book is crazy good. It is so suspenseful and keeps you flipping through the pages eager to see what will happen next.

It is a realistic situation and very entertaining! It was one of the best books I have ever read! Ted was forced to choose between money and love and he chose love That is why it is a favorite among many teen girls and is just an amazing novel. You all should read it! January 1, Lola I really enjoyed this novel. It has everything a novel needs to keep readers hooked; it has drama, love, and adventure.

This novel is about a college girl named Erica, who struggles with bulimia. He does so by offering him a free ride by paying h I really enjoyed this novel. He does so by offering him a free ride by paying his college tuition to the same college his daughter is going to. After they talk to each other a few times, they end up falling in love and caring for each other. By the ending of the novel the readers are hooked and thinking what will happen at the end, will they end up together in love or will they not and both be heartbroken about the whole situation?

The drunk-driving incident lands him in AA, crushes his leg, ruins his dreams of playing basketball, and ultimately his scholarship is revoked. Ted thinks his life is basically over until one day a strange man makes him an offer he cannot refuse. Ted thinks he is up for the task until the unexpected happens; he falls in love. What an interesting story line! It is not every day you read a book about an alcoholic guy falling in love with a bulimic girl.

This story would have been pure love for me if it were written in alternating point of views. Instead, the story was written in third-person so it made it confusing when it was switching from one character to another. Nevertheless, it was still a pretty good book! January 1, Kellie I thought that this book was really hard to get into but once i got there this book was amazing! The girl that the book was written for touched my heart! I know people have eating disorders. My friends could have an eating disorder but you might not know.

The book is written from the view a newspaper journalist. This review sounds a little jumpy and everywhere but i loved this book I thought that this book was really hard to get into but once i got there this book was amazing! This review sounds a little jumpy and everywhere but i loved this book and talking about it makes me so excited.

What would you do if you were paid to spy on someone and ended up falling in love with them? That is what he had to figure out. What he saw and what he had to do made falling in love with her pretty easy. If i was in that position i think that I would fall in love with that person. January 1, Salina I tried reading this novel twice in highschool, once my junior year and once my senior year. This was an outstanding read. The descriptive language was spot on.

Brat Jan 27, Bill rated it liked it. The emails were also confusing. I liked the ending, where the characters were at that point. Please provide an email address. Something that caught my eye and caused me to pick this book up is lovesidk subject matter and the format. He gave her someone to talk to and a sort of support system that was always encouraging. That was to be expected.
