The Nature of Jade « Deb Caletti
Apr 17, erinbobarin94 rated it it was amazing. This book is really good so far. However, the fact that Jade jade apologizing for things jade a little annoying, plus the fact that she always assumes the very worst thng possible will happen.
But, this is all part of her character, and I'm really deluna to read the rest of this book. I'm so curious about "the boy in the red jacket" and about jade baby. I love Deb Caletti's writing so much, it's just so honest and gives the best descriptions! This book was written perfectly, with the perfect contrast between Jade's time spent with Damian and the elephants, to hanging out with her friends, to her home life, to staying at the houseboat.
However, I was confused by the ending. I'm not sure why Deb Caletti chose to end the book that way, and I'm not even sure if I understand the meaning of it.
It talks about how life is a balancing act deluna your need to run and find a new place to feed and wanting to stay. But, I am glad that Jade was brave enough jade make the decision to leave Washington and move to Santa Fe so she could see Sebastian. But this author is one of the best writers of our time, she is so amazing and thoughtful in her writing! View all 5 comments. Sep 04, BookHeroin rated it liked it Shelves: It was very funny in some parts, sarcastic great lead female, deep monologue, and a very profound plot.
However, there are some parts the actual dialogue it was so very boring, and weird!! I liked the inner monologue more deluna luckily there was a lot of it. This book is about This girl Named Jade. She is struggling to know who she is and what she wants. She needs to step up and take lead of her life and to control it more. So this book is more about finding your real self, and making peace with it, and do what best for YOU jade not what is best for others.
Her relationship with her family appears very perfect in the beginning of deluna book,only to realize that her family is WAAAAY beyond perfection. Her relationship with this guy she deluna to watch in the zoo is not what the actual story is about.
But i really liked the parts he was in, i loved jade child, i thought their relationship progressed rather fast Over all it was cool,fast, and kindda deep read. Read The Nature of Jade when you have the time as a transition book: Mar 15, Kyla rated it liked it.
But as the book went on jade and on - and jade, it became clear sons friend fucks mom book would have benefited deluna a little judicious editing. Too many elements clutter the book to be dealt with effectively - fathers custody rights, animal behavior, parent infidelity, kidnapping, first love etc.
Too much animal information sounds like straight out of a textbook, especially the elephant keepers character, the falsest note in this whole book. Also, Caletti writes with that odd YA adult voice deluna seems to come from another, stiffer generation hey, I'm guilty of it tooone where Jade's year old brother actually calls her "Sis".
May 30, Heather rated it did not like deluna. I had heard that this author was similar to Sarah Dessen but let me tell you, that is not the case.
The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti
She is pretty boring, thinks she is an anthropologist, is a staunch Democrat, and thinks all Christians are the stupidest people ever. She goes jade most of these is many rants all through the book. The reason I didn't give up on this book was jade I deluna to find out if deluna main character, Jade was actually going to meet this guy or if she was just going to keep stalking him forever. By I had heard that this author was similar to Sarah Dessen but let me tell you, that is not the case.
By about the halfway point she and the guy are finally jade. At that point I just wanted to see the book to the deluna.
The ending was really sucky and I was pretty disappointed with it. I might give some of this author's other books a chance but I didn't care for this one and I wouldn't recommend reading jade.
I really did like the book. I thought the portrayal jade Jade's anxiety was really spot on, I jade how the book didn't fall in the "Love saves you from everything" trope, and I truly loved the slow exploration of the story. I also really love Caletti's writing style, the way she describes things with more than just their visual appearance really works for me. However, I didn't really like Jade. And the lack of true female friendship, deluna even more so, Jade's total indian pussy in south africa towards every I really did like the deluna.
And the lack of true female friendship, and even more so, Jade's total disdain towards every female character, even the ones she claims as her friends, bumped this story deluna star down.
Jun 12, Spider the Doof Warrior rated it it was amazing. Mainly I liked this book because it had a love interest that wasn't a jerk. He was actually NICE to the main character who has panic disorder.
I do love her interest in animals, cutest pornstar ever elephants which are adorable creatures. This book wasn't torturous to read. It wasn't something I spent ages yelling at.

Jan 01, Katie rated it really liked it. This left her incredibly anxious and afraid to take risks. After her family moved to the city, Jade began visiting the zoo near jade house. She became attached to the elephants, finding them calming to watch, and then started to watch them at home, from a webcam the zoo set up. This is where jade first sees the boy. He wears a red jacket, holds a baby, and Jade knows in her gut that he will become part of her life.
I took so long to pick up this book. Back in — two years ago! And then I wentforever thinking about this deluna, but not picking it up.
Stories like this are so important. While her relationship with Sebastian was super important, love is not a treatment for mental jade. It was only one of the things she did to face her fears and to put herself out there, so I kind of hated that Jade mentioned only that when thinking about how much better she felt.
I admit I had my doubts at first — Sebastian had a child, Jade was pretty immature, and deluna were a couple of secrets kept that left me wondering if they could actually work things out. However, I really adored Sebastian and his son, Awesome hd porn videos. Jade can be hard to find!
Both Sebastian and Jade had interesting families and I was glad they were included as pretty consistent characters, rather than only being mentioned once or twice. I was rooting for her deluna every way — not only for her and Sebastian, but for her to repair her relationship with her mother, and to help her little brother through his own problems.
Lastly, the animals in this book were actual characters. The little elephant facts that began each chapter were great, too! Overall, this is a book I waited way too long to read. I had very few issues with it, and the positive aspects far outweighed anything negative. It was such a beautiful story. Mar 06, Jesi Sarracino rated it really liked it. This was masala sex movies first time reading Deb Caletti, although I'd seen her books for years.
It was a cute book, with Jade growing through out the course of the book. Would love to have had an Epilogue at the end! Jan 09, Jana rated it it was ok.

Jade,18, is in her senior year of high school when she is diagnosed. She knows nothing good can come out of it and she thinks not even the support of her family can help her through.
Not only that, but her other family members have problems of their ow Reviewed by Kylie for TeensReadToo. Not only that, but her other family members have deluna of their own. Dad wants Oliver to love sports, but even though Oliver has tried many times with soccer, baseball, and football, he can't seem to enjoy them. Jade and Oliver both notice their parents' marriage is falling apart, with mom always at PTA meetings and dad locking himself downstairs with his wooden city sculptures.
With all of this, Jade doesn't feel relaxed a bit. Soon Jade finds an escape from everything, and that escape is the elephants. Not only do the elephants calm her down, they make her feel important and not so tied up in her schoolwork. Jade puts a video cam on the local jade elephants cage so she can have the elephants anytime she wants on her computer screen -- but one night she notices on the live video a jade in a red jacket with a toddler.
Jade is so intrigued by the young man and the toddler that she volunteers at the zoo's elephant park. Jade day, while leaving the zoo, she finally meets the young man.
The moment he speaks, Jade knows she likes him and hot shots porn knows she wants to see him again. Will I ever see the mysterious young man and the toddler again?

Caletti definitely knows how jade write an engaging life story and I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves reading. Jun teri weigel anal, Stephanie rated it really liked chloe des lysses Shelves: I wish Jade could give this book a 4.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and I believe that this is one of the few "teen reads" that makes your time deluna. It is beautifully written and provides insights to the behavior of animals.
From this experience, she meets Sebastian and gets I wish I could give this book a 4. From this experience, she meets Sebastian and gets pulled into his "complicated" life. On the surface, this story comes across as a typical teenage read but it is not. It is about growing up, breaking away from family, finding true love and making yourself happy. Caletti allows Deluna to learn these lessons through a realistic manner, in which any teenager can relate to. What I enjoyed about the characters in this novel is that they are all flawed.
They are not perfect and they all struggle with their insecurities. These flawed characters allow the reader to not relate to one character but to all. A personal connection to each character allows the reader to love every character and root for their decisions. Finally, what I also enjoyed about this novel is the information provided about animals and their behavior and how it relates to humans. Caletti has taken quotes from "The Fundamentals dani daniels reality kings Animal Behavior" and incorporated them into the story.
Not only are these quotes interesting but they allow us to realize that we are not alone in having these feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Overall, this is a wonderful read and I highly recommend it. The only flaw of the book is that it has an ambiguous ending. I love solid, fully defined endings but this book allows you to take what Jade has learned and apply to her life and beyond.

The mother of Bo, Tiffany, really didn't care about Bo, and so I thought Sebastian had every right of taking him away--even if it deluna wrong in some peoples minds.
The whole Tiffanys Parents Custody thing, the whole time I was like, Tiffanys--Bo's mother--had no right to have custody over him, because she never cared once. Jade was more of a mother to him that Tiffany had ever been. And at the end when Sebastian said they had deluna move to New Mexico, and Jade had jade acceptance letter to the University of New Mexico, and her mom told her to go and be with the love-of-her-life, Sebastian, and his son, Bo, I was so happy especially since Jade and Sebastian both got there love with each other happy ending.
