7 Kinds of Ordinary Catastrophes
Title: 7 Kinds of Ordinary Catastrophes
Author: Amber Kizer
When her boyfriend makes a confession that puts their relationship in jeopardy, Gert must also deal with working a job as a donut filler, and coping with her father’s health scare in the midst of trying to stay focused at school in order to get into college.
Okay, so here’s the deal: there are books about volcanoes erupting and meteorites hitting Earth and plane crashes where the survivors have to eat people—those are extraordinary crises.
That’s not what this book is about. I’m more the ordinary catastrophe type. This second semester of my sophomore year, there are basically 7 KINDS OF ORDINARY CATASTROPHES: high school, boys, heartbreak, family, job, friends, and the future.
Well, I guess everyone’s life is full of ordinary catastrophes. These are mine. Hi, I’m Gert Garibaldi. Welcome to my crazy life.
