      I read this book because I knew what one of its core conflicts was: whether or not the main character Jenna, a high school senior, is ready to lose her virginity. I wanted to see what message books like these send our young girls. While I may not have liked everything in the book, I realized this is reality. I wouldn't recommend it necessarily, but it was good for me to see what kind of literature high school girls have at their fingertips.

      O M G !!!!!! U NEED TO READ THIS BOOK CUZ HS! I CAN'T TYPE IT ALL! BUT ONE THING I HAVE TO TYPE IS ULL NEVER GUESS WHO DOES WHAT! THE BOOK IS LIKE: WOW HES A JERK!u NEED 2 read. LIKE NOW!

    5. Jordyn

      I felt like this had no plot. I think the climax should have been the big conflict and then the rest of the book, how she dealt with it. It seemed like she had no personal flaws.

    6. Emma

      I felt I should start to read some real teeny-real life books, and this was one of them.I liked it. I didn't really like it and I didn't love it. I felt that it didn't really have a plot, and it all led up to the last say couple of chapters, which of course was fine, but I was reading the book solely to get to the major thing - which was major but not as major as I thought. I thought it was going to be more about how she would cope with her boyfriend giving her the date rape drug - or if her boy [...]

      Nothing happened in this book until the very end, and that wasn't even exciting. Jenna is boring. Her boyfriend is boring. Her best friend is the only one with any spunk. The author could have really gone somewhere more emotional with the************************************SPOILER*******************************************The author could have really gone somewhere more emotional with the date rape drug storyline. Instead nothing happens, Jenna gets sick. There are probably better YA books out t [...]

      This book was not bad but not what I expected. It started out with Jenna, a senior who got excepted to Harvard. Her best friend is starting to act different and her boyfriend wants to take the next step, which she is not ready to do. I don't want to spoil the end but it continues slowly and then with in the last thirty pages things start to change quickly and it's not an ending you expect. Personally it would not be a book that I would re-read because it was slow.

    13. Geli

      When beginning this novel I was excited considering it was written by Niki Burnham. After a while I began to wonder when the excitement was to going to begin. For a bit it just seemed to drag on but once the ending came it all made sense. I thank Niki Burnham on writing this novel. I think it has a very important message with it. I encourage all girls to give this book a read. See what you get out of it.

      I like this novel! But Scott was dumb. People can be idiots. Jenna's best friend is Courtney and she (c) is dating Matt. Jenna is dating Scott. Everything is going well as the description says until Courtney and Jenna go shopping for Christmas or something. While in a store Jenna sees Courtney sneakily push so nail polish in her bag. Jenna doesn't know what to do at the time but she kind of gives hints to C. This created tension between them. After Jenna learns she was accepted into Harvard for [...]

      I will first admit that it was the cover that first caught my attention I mean seriously! If you don't want to know more about this book just by looking at the cover then I don't know what you are thinking! But let's be serious folks. Sticky Fingers was a wonderful novel!

    24. Shannon (aka The Tale Temptress)

      This book was not at all what I was expecting, and that's a good thing. I figured it would be the pretty cliched deal about a heroine whose on track for great things and then decides to start partying and chucks it all away. Jenna, and Niki Burnham, really surprised me.Jenna was a pretty consistent character in the story. She stays strong, she stays on track, despite the fact that her friends are the ones self-destructing around her. She does make a couple bad choices, but on the whole, she stay [...]

      I'm teetering somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars. I really liked it. It's one of those books that has serious issues in it as in the characters have very serious things happen to them, so it wasn't like a bubbly-happy book, like I normally readThe whole book oh I almost feel bad liking it! The main character, Jenna--her life just kinda falls apart little by little throughout the course of the book She starts out with a perfect little life. She just got into Harvard (early admission), she's got gr [...]

      When I very first read this book a few years ago, I was able to read it in one sitting. Which is something I have never been able to do. As I was re-reading Sticky Fingers, my first thought was "finally there's a book about teenagers being teenagers," and how all the things that Jenna, Scott, Courtney, and even Mat experienced during high school is believable and can happen to anyone. Being a teenager in high school isn't like a lot of these books and shows these days make it out to be. There's [...]

      Stick Fingers was definitely a relatable book because it was based around small group of kids, in their high school days, dealing with the everyday pressures of drugs, relationships, popularity, and getting into college. Jenna is a usual high school senior. She has good grades, and a boyfriend, who she loves, and amazing friends and family. She wants to get into Harvard, along with her boyfriend, Scott.
