Reviews

Isla - Kimberley School - 2019

I really enjoyed this book because it is very descriptive and is written from Miss Nobody's point of view. It is an emotional book about a girl who has so many emotions and things she wants to say but can't quite get them out. The people at school used to bully her but she couldn't stick up for herself because she can't talk. I would highly recommend this book because it never gets boring and when something gets calmer a twist in the story appears keeping it interesting. It is one of those books you really get into and then when you have read it you read it again.

Hannah - Kirkby College - 2019

I really enjoyed the book. It is the kind of book that really opens your eyes to the kind of issues people can have hidden behind their masks, I loved every moment of the book and it is one of the best I have read. It was also funny and it is one of the very few books that have made me cry. I would recommend it to my other friends on the spot. 5 out of 5! UWU

Molly - Kimberley School - 2019

It was a powerful and emotional book about a girl that is being bullied that just wants a voice. The story has real life situations that the reader can relate to. I think there was a definitely a plot twist in the fact that everyone turned against Miss Nobody. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that would like a new book to read.

Sarah - Kimberley School - 2019

I loved this book. Firstly, because it was written from Miss Nobody's point of view so you really saw her deepest darkest secrets. Also it had a good story line; she started a new school and got bullied because she was an easy victim as she couldn't say the things that she wanted to say back. But, she found a way to resolve that but it got a bit out of hand. Her brother is also very ill which gives the story big twists.

Paris - Kirkby College - 2019

Being Miss Nobody is an amazing book. I would definetly recommend it to anyone. I loved it.

Natalia - All Saints Catholic Voluntary Academy - 2019

It was a good book to read with a nice story and emotional moments . The one thing I wasn't a fan of was of the ending as I think it was quite sudden and could have hinted at what happens after the book (like a mini sequel)

Millie - Kirkby College - 2019

I really liked how Rosalind dealt with bullies by writing the blog and convincing nobodies to stand up as well as fighting SM. I also liked how she managed to overcome her condition and reveal who miss nobody was while also helping her sick brother.

Jaia - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I thought this book was OK but I think it took a while to get going.

Florence - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I really enjoyed this book and I loved how all of the characters had their own personality. However I found that it was too long and took too long to really start. I felt that Rosalind should have started getting clues that she had become the bully earlier.

Elyssa - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I absolutely loved reading this book! It was packed with a range of heart stopping, sad and surprising scenes which were very unpredictable. This made the book a really good read. I would DEFINITELY recommend this book to anybody who enjoys reading.

Emily - The Suthers School - 2019

I really liked this book because it was really interesting to read and a great detail. The bit that I found most interesting would be all the plot twists, they were really good and I didn't see most of them coming

Faith - George Spencer Academy - 2019

I gave the book 5/5 because it was really good and it made me cry. I loved the characters and felt like they were real.

Saanvi - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

It was a nice book that showed the feelings of a girl who couldn't speak but wanted to speak out against bullies. But she created a blog and inadvertently turned into a bit of a bully herself. I liked the book. Although some parts of the book were boring and not needed, overall this was an awesome book to read!

Narisse - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I enjoyed this book as it was interesting to read and I found it informative. The book is written in 1st person which sometimes makes it easier to understand the narrators emotions. The book had a good storyline although for me, the blurb was not as close to the storyline as I interpreted.

Lucy - George Spencer Academy - 2019

Being Miss Nobody was really good because it made me cry and also laugh. When I read this I thought that it was a really good idea for a book. I found that I couldn't stop reading it and the characters were amazing. It had a really interesting story line.

Ella - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

This book brought up many themes including loss and bullying which really made me think. Although I enjoyed the book I thought it went at quite a slow pace and had a lack of momentum.

Anika - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I think that this is a brilliant book which keeps a realistic yet relatable topic that is enjoyable to read. I think it includes the right amount of sad and happy moments yet I think it could have moved on quicker instead of repeating the same topic. It is still great.

Angela - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I enjoyed this book very much because it was very relistic and you could put yourself in the characters position sad but very touching.

Emily - George Spencer Academy - 2019

Even though it was a bid sad there was a very good storyline. And I really enjoyed it.

Connie - George Spencer Academy - 2019

I like the idea that the nobody's stood up for themselves. I enjoyed it thoroughly it kept me up all night! My parents got so angry because I was so engaged with the book. The book is amazingly epic overall.

Carys - Kirkby College - 2019

I like 'Being Miss Nobody'. It is really good. I liked it a lot and it touched my heart. The story is good and the moral is really good too.

Emily - George Spencer Academy - 2019

Being miss nobody was an inspiring story with ups and downs I would definitely recommend this book to others.

Natasha - All Saints Catholic Voluntary Academy - 2019

I liked the plot as some parts can be relatable and I like how the author can make you feel emotion towards the character even though they aren't real

Catherine - All Saints Catholic Voluntary Academy - 2019

A good book good choice of characters but could be a little better situation and shows how Rosalind overcomes her problems

Aleksandra - Ashfield School - 2019

Miss nobody is a very touching and interesting book.I'd struggle to stop reading it and find out if will she eventually talk in public?What will happen to her brother?And will she make any friends?I decided to not give it a 5 because I felt the same scenarios were just repeating themselves.Other than that I did enjoy this book and recommend it. Thank you :)

Lily - Ashfield School - 2019

This book was really good. it was interesting to understand the character's thoughts through her writing instead of her words. It was an original idea for a story and was full of emotions. The end was heartbreaking and it was a really nice book to read with a credible ending. I would definately recommend this book.

Anna - George Spencer Academy - 2019

This is a really good book. It tells an amazing emotional story about a young girl desperate for a voice & who has a wonderful brother.

Lynsey - Bulwell Academy - 2019

Being Miss Nobody was a motivating story from the point of view of a girl overcoming her fears. It inspired me showed me a point of view that I have never seen. I loved it.

Lottie - Nottingham Girls High School - 2019

I did not like this book or the way the sentences were put together. The story was alright.

Lily - Kirkby College - 2019

I love this book it is one of the best I have ever read ;however, I cried and wasn't very happy with how Seb died in the end. Other than that the whole concept of the book was brilliant and it raised awareness about bullying. It was really fun to find out the emotions Rosalind was going through throughout the book.

Shayne - Kirkby College - 2019

The book was really good, although I didn't really have time to read it. The characters were were funny such as Seb [Rosalind's brother] and Rosalind herself. The ending was sad but it makes you feel like all happiness seems lost you can find it again. I would happily read it a thousand times more because I loved it so much.

Oscar - Kimberley School - 2019

A heart-breaking and heart-warming story with twists and turns that show the existence of the little guy, and how using a platform that gives a voice to those who have none can be turned into a villain. My only problem was that it had a slight religious undertone that didn't need to be there.
