  • Haddix was my go to author when I worked with elementary and middle school kids so high hopes for a true YA book from her The premise had meaty potential But the relationships between most of the characters didn t ring true The consistently unpleasant dialogue between Becca her mother was equally unpleasant to read I don t think you have to like a character to enjoy a book but I found Becca quite off putting The scholarship interview and setup was odd, awkward and added nothing to the plot Just [...]

  • This reminded me of every other experience I ve had with a Haddix book it was vaguely interesting as a concept, but the book itself bored me to tears There s just not a lot there to intrigue me, and nothing to the character, not really.



  • This review is also available on my blog, Okay, okay, enough examples My point is that I could totally own what Becca was going through, college wise, and that Full Ride came alive to me in a whole new way because of it But the really neat thing was that when I read it for the first time, I didn t have that angle and I still really enjoyed it Full Ride is multi focused enough that you could read it from quite a few different backgrounds, and get different things out each time This makes it a gre [...]

  • Best Haddix book I ve read in the past few years After her last few middle grade novels, I had begun to think I had outgrown her writing Game Changer and the Found trilogy were interesting and had some good ideas, but their writing was just so simplistic But Full Ride reminded me of Leaving Fishers or even Uprising in tone and style realistic and thought provoking with excellent pacing Her depiction of the college entrance phenomenon is spot on As someone who has recently lived through the stres [...]


  • I really enjoy the fact that Ms Haddix writes YA with female protagonists that are not love stories I enjoy love stories as much as the next person, but there s something refreshing about the fact that she tackles interesting and intriguing issues with female leads that doesn t end with a kiss or center around a boy Stress about college and the future is something very real and I found myself identifying with Becca s fear and anxiety about it all, even if my life is nothing like her circumstance [...]


  • I ve been a fan of Haddix s books since I read the first few pages of Among the Hidden With Full Ride, she did not fail to impress me once again Becca, the main character, made you love her and support her fight to become a college student The problem, or joy for the reader, was the surprises in store behind every attempt Becca made to continue her education I never expected the various turns of events that happened throughout the book, and in turn found the book hard to put down I ll admit,the [...]


  • After her father is arrested and tried for embezzlement, Becca and her mom go into hiding They already happen to have a generic name, but they leave their home state and relocate to a small town in Ohio Terrified that someone will recognize her, Becca spends the next 3 years with her head down, making few friends and studying than is normal But can she ever escape the damage that her father did As time comes to apply to college, Becca realizes that she may have to reveal her secret.


  • So I think this book was pretty well written out, but I would have liked less depression in the middle because every time Becca runs into something good, it turns into something bad The ending is the best part because Mr Trumbull, their lawyer, is finally exposed and his true colors are revealed Although depressing throughout most of the book, the mood ends up happy in the end for all.


  • Sorry, I just couldn t get into this book The main character was very annoying and whiny The premise was just too unbelievable.

  • I read Full ride by Margaret Peterson Haddix You think the book is about a girl getting a full ride scholarship but it s much than that, like the title has a deeper meaning to it You realize that you re about to go on a full ride of a girl named Becca Jones life when reading this You ll read a lot about what she s thinking and how she s dealing with her situation I kind of feel like most of the things she says to herself was just a bunch of filler but some of it does add to the story This story [...]

  • At first, I thought the book was pretty boring But as I kept reading, the desire to keep reading pulled me in bit by bit I think that this book is really relatable, especially with teenagers who are in high school The author has a interesting way of describing the pressures of high school and balancing that with the difficulties of family problems that the majority of the population has I think that this book is realistic and the only thing that I dislike about the book is the title of the chapt [...]
