    1. Rachel McIntyre Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Me and Mr J book, this is one of the most wanted Rachel McIntyre author readers around the world.

    2. That ending. That ending?Are you kidding me with this? FUCK this book. Fuck the way it handles sexual agency, fuck the way it pats itself on the back for being "socially responsible", and especially fuck the pathetic, limp-dicked, pedestrian ending, which was one of THE cheapest things I have ever read. Seriously, FUCK it. This book thinks it's edgy and dangerous but all it is is one big lame after school special, some sort of finger-wagging that you didn't ask for from parents who aren't yours. [...]

    3. There's two aspects to this story. One; the teenager having a relationship with her teacher, as the marketing tells us. Two; a teenager who is VICIOUSLY bullied. To me this book is more about bullying than anything else. Emotional, physical, humiliatingly foul bullying. The novel is written in the form of Lara's diary, as she records her feelings and reactions to the things that are happening in her life. Exams, money troubles, her parents separating and the aforementioned DISGUSTING bullying. S [...]

    4. I'd like to point out that this has some serious bullying in it and I don't think that's mentioned enough in the blurb, but it was such a huge and important part of the book. I loved this!

    5. When I spotted Me & Mr J up on Netgalley, I was intrigued. We've all seen the news stories and read the articles about teachers and students who fall in love. I mostly read them in disgust, because ew. But it's not very often you get the chance to read a fictional story that takes on such a taboo. It's a hard one to decide to read, because you're just not sure how this kind of novel will be received. My absolute kudos go to Rachel McIntyre for writing such a topical, difficult, bound to crea [...]

    6. Ich möchte gar nicht viele Worte über dieses besondere Buch verlieren, möchte es nicht auseinandernehmen oder analysieren, doch bevor ich euch gar nicht von ihm erzähle, versuche ich wenigstens ein paar Worte zu finden, die meine Gedanken zusammenfassen und mein Lesegefühl beschreiben.Dieses Jugendbuch zu lesen war wie eine Achterbahnfahrt der Gefühle. Lara ist solch ein goldiges, gewitztes, offenes, intelligentes und tolles Mädchen, das jedoch die Hölle durchqueren muss. Aufgrund der se [...]

    7. I don't think I can read anymore of thisI don't usually rate books I don't finish but I need to say things about this one. I stopped for a variety of reasonsFirstly being a teacher this book and where it was going made me feel really uncomfortable and there was no way I could turn that teacher head off whilst reading it to be able to enjoy it. Secondly I felt the girl came across as a lot younger than what she was supposed to be. Don't get me wrong it's not that the voice was a bad one but I jus [...]

    8. Danke Frau McIntyre für dieses im ersten Moment heftige Ende, das aber vernünftig und realistisch ist!

    9. "When I close my eyes, I see him lying next to me in bed. I can almost hear him breathing and feel his arms around me. Feel his skin. The pure, clean version of that afternoon, not their dirty, perverted account; that's what I'm clinging on to. The truth!"Anyone that really knows me knows that I will read every book about student teacher inappropriateness before I kick the big bucket into the sky. Why? I don't know why. It's one of those taboo subjects people get their panties in a twist for and [...]

    10. Ma vaffMa che diamine!!!!Uno dei pochi libri capace di influenzare così il mio umore. avevo sempre i nervi a fior di pelle, e per cosa??QUELLO sarebbe un finale???? Essere così nervosi durante la lettura speravo avrebbe portato ad un finale degno di questo nome! E invece mi è rimasta addosso solo la voglia di prendere il libro e scaraventarlo dalla finestra.Per fortuna tengo troppo al mio Kindle. MAI PIU'.

    11. Mein Eindruck in 5 Sätzen:1) Der Humor ist wirklich abgefahren.2) Die Protagonistin war sehr schlagfertig.3) Mobbing als Thema wird sehr gut dargestellt.4) Die Lehrer-Schüler-Sache war schlecht gemacht.5) Das Buch ist in reinen Tagebucheinträgen geschrieben.Etwas ausführlicher:Sternschnuppenstunden besteht nur aus Tagebucheinträgen, was ich vor dem Lesen gar nicht wusste. Ich muss aber sagen, dass diese Art der Romanform hier doch recht gut funktioniert hat und besonders der sehr exzentrisc [...]

    12. Quello che ho sempre temuto per uno Young Adult si è verificato con questo libro. Mi spiegherò meglio, ma prima vi racconto brevemente la storia.Lara T è una quindicenne vittima di bullismo, del genere più spietato: che sia verbale o fisico, diretto o indiretto, sia per essere una ragazza troppo capace, sia per non avere una buona situazione economica. Non ha amici, non vuole aiuto, non ha speranze, non ha una buona considerazione di se stessa. Tutto cambia con l’arrivo di Mr. Jagger, il p [...]

    13. Seitdem die Firma ihres Vaters insolvent gegangen ist, hat sich Laras wohlergehendes Leben schlagartig um 180 Grad geändert. Das Haus wurde verkauft, stattdessen wohnt sie mit ihren Eltern und ihrem jüngeren Bruder nun in einer Mietswohnung mit hauchdünnen Wänden. Statt sich um den Haushalt zu kümmern, geht Laras Mutter nun arbeiten, als Putzfrau bei einer reichen Familie einer Mitschülerin. An allen Ecken muss nun gespart werden, vor allem da die Schulgebühren für Laras Mädchenschule a [...]

    14. Obwohl das Buch ja schlicht gestaltet ist, gefällt es mir optisch richtig gut. Vom Inhalt her hat es mich stark an"Atemnot" von Ilsa J. Bick erinnert, doch es liest sich ganz anders. Wir bekommen hier nämlich das Tagebuch der fünfzehnjährigen Lara Tittle in die Hände. Vor zwei Jahren musste ihr Vater Konkurs anmelden und ist seither arbeitslos. Die Familie musste ihr Haus verkaufen und die Mutter geht putzen, damit wenigsten etwas in die Kasse kommt. Lara ist gross, dünn, rothaarig und vor [...]

    15. Me and Mr J is written from the point of view of Lara, our fifteen year old protagonist. Lara is at a difficult enough age as it is, but her parents are having troubles both financially and, as a result, in their relationship, and her family life is suffering. Add to this, the bullies have singled Lara out and are treating her really badly at school and making it absolutely clear her family will suffer even more if she speaks to anyone. This, I believe, is the root of this story, the poor girl h [...]

    16. **ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**I didn't want to like this book. (I say that a lot.) Teacher/Student affairs (understandably) kind of gross me out, and seeing them romanticized it not something that I generally find appealing, especially with a character this young. This book though, I couldn't stop reading. Even after I told myself, "Okay, I'll read one more page and then be done with it, because GOD I CAN'T HANDLE THIS TROPE", I kept reading. Told strictly in diar [...]

    17. Thèmes forts, sujets importants, ce roman les multiplie et l'auteure aurait pu trouver tellement d'autres manières de les traiter. Le choix narratif n'a pas été pour moi optimal. Le récit ne s'attache qu'à l'essentiel, en plus de mettre trop de distance avec les personnages, alors que ce dont l'auteure parle aurait mérité d'être plus approfondi. Si ce qui se passe, ce qui touche au harcèlement est arrivé à franchir ce mur qui me séparait de l'héroïne, l'histoire d'amour m'a laiss [...]

    18. This is the story of a young girl called Lara who's family are on the breadline after the family business went bust. If things were not hard enough she is getting badly bullied at school , and being ginger haired with an unfortunate surname is just about all the bullies could possibly need to begin a war against her. Lara's interior dialogue is hilarious and even though she really is struggling with these bullies and having no real friends to speak off she is very brave and gutsy and I had to ad [...]

    19. 4.5 starsI really enjoyed Me and Mr J. Even though I wouldn't normally choose to read a book involving forbidden romance, I found it a moving and funny coming of age story.Lara's parents are getting divorced and she is the victim of some serious bullying at school. She has no-one to confide in until a new teacher arrives and soon she realises she is falling in love with him.What made this stand out for me was the central character's often very funny reflections on her place at home, at school an [...]

    20. Loved it. Yes, the subject matter is a bit grim, but the main character, Lara's POV is so convincing that I was swept along with her feelings and lost perspective on the reality of what was going on. Because it deals with a teacher-student relationship I can understand that it may not be for everyone, but I found it to be subtle, very funny at times, and overall hugely enjoyable.

    21. This is an incredibly intense, strong story about love that just shouldn't be. It's amazingly written, wonderfully accurate and relatable and full of excitement and energy. I really, really loved it from cover to cover. It was a great read!Only marked 4 stars because I love my happy endings. So the actual rating is 4.5. Full review to come.

    22. Affanculo anche questo finale. Cioè ma si può rovinare un libro così??????????Ho letto questo libro in un solo giorno e PRETENDEVO un finale diverso.Affanculo con affetto #_______##Aleseiscurrileesincera

    23. "even when something feels right, it can still be wrong."I commend the author. This is a very tough book. It doesn't hold back any of the ugly stuff. Lara is horribly bullied. She is tormented and terrorized. It's awful to read. And the midst of all the bullying and awful abuse, there is one beacon - a new teacher Mr. J. He is sweet & gorgeous. He is a new English teacher - a subject she is very good in - and he has noticed Lara and how great she is.But it's a fine line between the teacher a [...]

    24. Originally reviewed for Bookaholic ConfessionsI’d been hearing lots about Me & Mr J (all of it good!) so I was really looking forward to discovering this story for myself. I was intrigued to see how things would play out; Rachel McIntyre is tackling two mahhhooosvie subjects here with both pupil/teacher relationships and bullying being brought into the spotlight.I always go for books written in diary format; I think they’re great. You get such a personal insight into the narrator’s min [...]

    25. „Sternschnuppenstunden“ von Rachel McIntyre ist ein sehr realistisches und authentisches Buch. Die Autorin versteht es wirklich sehr gut und überzeugend aus der Sicht eines sechzehnjährigem Mädchen zu schreiben. Da das Buch in Form von Tagebucheinträgen geschrieben wurde, erhält der Leser klare Einblicke in die Gedankenwelt von Lara. Dennoch gab es ein paar Kleinigkeiten, die mich persönlich nicht zu hundert Prozent überzeugt haben.Die Thematik des Buches wiegt sehr schwer und befasst [...]

    26. 3.5 StarsI think I need to start this review by saying that I had not read the synopsis before reading this book. All I knew was that it was YA with student/teacher elements. I was honestly expecting a light and fluffy, student/teacher romance. I'm still trying to process what happened, and where my thoughts are at right now. Books are usually pretty predictable, so I was confident that this would be an easy read about love between a girl of around 17, and her young, gorgeous, student teacher. B [...]

    27. This is such a challenging and different book it's sure to divide opinion. I'm not sure what I was expecting, perhaps a book about grooming,(which I don't think it is). I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The book is Lara's diary and we only see her version of the events surrounding the illicit relationship which is where the interesting part comes in about how we judge Ben. It's very uncomfortable as a parent of teenage girls to consider the possibility that these situations occur but the wr [...]

    28. I received a free advanced ebook copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Me and Mr J is written in the form of a diary by 15-year old Lara Titliss, who likes to write out her problems: she is getting bullied by others from her year, she has some problems going on at home and on top of all that, she has fallen for her young English teacher who is the only one who is kind to her and knows her true potential.I found Me and Mr J to be an interesting book. I wasn't too sure of how it wil [...]

    29. I found this book to be very annoying. The main character went on constantly about how she was better than the other girls at her school, and although she wasn't as vocal about it as they were, she was basically a bully as well. For example the part in which she calls the overweight boy a "fat bastard." I was disgusted to be honest. I felt the entire book was inappropriately handled. It glamorized student teacher relationships in my opinion. The subject had a lot of potential, but I feel like it [...]

    30. This book was really interesting, because I loved it whilst wanting to slap Mr J! Focusing on a variety of controversial issues such as bullying and student/teacher relationships, the story is very current and therefore it's easy to relate to what is going on. At times it was laugh out loud funny, at others it made me think about how I'd deal with the situation if I was Lara. It's clear that this is going to be a book that people either love or hate, but I was firmly in the LOVE camp and read it [...]
