A note from Jade Leighton's journal Years ago, a tragic accident robbed me of my mother and emotions. Because I find beauty in darkness and thrive outside social norms, I've been labeled a "freak" at school. I know my continued apathy hurts my loved ones, but I'm not about to change. Nothing will ever hurt me again.Then I wake up in an alternate reality...and everything else has changed. Goth is in. I'm considered cool, and my archenemy--the formerly popular Mercedes--is the freak. But my real friends won't talk to me...and the new boy is getting under my skin. As my world spins out of control, I'm desperate to return to normal. But the more time that passes, the less I'm sure what "normal" really is....

Oh My Goth Reviews
As a child, Jade witnessed her mother's death in an horrific car accident. In an effort to protect herself, she decided to stay detached and numb herself from the world. A conversation with her dead mother and a bump on the head brings her into an alternate reality in order to help her see the dangers of living her life behind her emotional armor.
The freaky things shunned by mainstream can be beautiful.

'The Thirteenth Floor' back in its girlish puberty.
I'm so surprised that I'm writing a negative review of this book. When I first got Oh My Goth, I thought it'd be one of those books that I'd recommend to all my friends. The premise was great! I mean--here's to showing everyone is human on the inside and labels/appearances should not be the defining factor of a person or their worth.
Well, first off, we get this huge contradiction right at the opening. Each chapter is prefaced with a blurb from Jade's private journal--here's the firs ...more
Jade is so spoiled. If I had acted this way at her age, I'd have gotten my little ass kicked sky-high to Mars and back.
Name choices are quirky at best. Clarick? Was that really necessary?
Moral of story: all popular people are shallow and all nonconformists are deep thinkers - not.
Totally mindless teen fic. Loved it, but it could never be called "good." It was good reading for the plane, kept my mind off the fact that I was 40,000 feet off the ground. That alone earns it 2 stars rather than the 1 it probably rightly deserves. :)
Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well when I started this one I thought I was going to hit it right off and it was going to be the love of my life this year. But sadly here I am writing a DNF failed read review for it. I am very sad right now.
Do I Recommend this book? Not really
Notes and Opinions: When I picked this one up I was so excited man! I love Showalter and I really wanted to love this one. I mean look at that premise it looks SO GOOD!!! It's all about showing that every ...more
This book is extremely cliché. I feel like there was no actual meaning to this book, about 20 pages in, I was ready for it to be over.
The story of this book is that Jade and her enemy Mercedes are hit by a car and go into this sort of freaky Friday reality. In this reality Jade, on day 1, seems to care about all sorts of things she had no care for at all in her actual reality. (view spoiler)[When Jade finally wakes up, she's completely changed and starts to call her stepmother Mom suddenly and c ...more
