In the first Ch. she is caught shoplifting, which she vehemently denies. When she views the tape, she quickly fabricates a story to vindicate herself. So her honesty issues are of 2 natures, telling the truth, and stealing. She does not get along with her mom and now her preppy friends are distancing themselves because of her compulsive [...]

    3. Review to come. First (and subsequent) impressions, though: meh. It was okay.***finally drafted my review. This isn't final, mostly because finding a polite way to say "blaaaaaaaaaaaaah" is hard to do.Mia thinks her life is hitting bottom when she gets busted for shoplifting, but it’s about to get much worse: her two best friends announce that they’re tired of dealing with her and don’t want to be her friends anymore. Her grandfather--the person she’s closest to in the world--is in poor [...]

    4. I have recently read a book called “Living on Impulse”. It was a very good book with great characters. It had a great plot as well. I will now tell you about this enjoyable book. The plot of this book was a very good plot. It included interesting characters. It also had a satisfying ending. Some parts made me want to cry, while other parts made me want to laugh. The author was able to control the emotions the reader feels, which is always nice. The book itself teaches a lesson. It starts [...]

    6. This book teaches you a lesson on not to to steal. The girl in this book doesn't have a care in the world of what will happen to her future. She just wants to have fun, check out boys and party all the time. Well, that all changes for her when she gets caught shoplifting. Mia Morrow learns a life lesson the hard way by having to work her butt off. In the end she realizes how things can go wrong pretty fast and not to steal.

    7. The book Living on Impulse was amazing! This book conveys that without loving people in your life you will do crazy things. The problems of stealing and having to suffer her concequinces. This book is amazing because the problem, setting, and characters made the problem so realistic which is great. I just love that the problem is so realistic. This is a problem that everyone should learn from and learn not to do and how you have to suffer your consequinces.

    8. Boring characters, barely disguised moral (I'm sorry but you can find another way to say "impulsive behavior" that would be more true to a teenager's vocabulary), too-easy character development--honestly, had to skim through the last half to get an idea of how this would be wrapped up, yet a few chapters before the end stopped caring enough to even do that. Obviously won't be placing on recommendation lists anytime soon!

    9. This is quite possibly one of the best books I've read. The character development was absolutely flawless, life lessons in the book were completely relevant and worthwhile for the younger people in our generation and the fact that the characters dealt with hardships and had to figure them out on their own was something that books no longer have or teach and I loved every page. I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend this book to anyone

    10. The book started out slow, but it started to get more interesting. The book really delved into the character of Mia and why she started acting out. When you finally learn that Mia's mom is an alcoholic, things start to make more sense. You understand the urge Mia gets. I'm not sure a change in a person can happen that quickly, but the ending seemed to tie things all together.

    11. 3. 5 starsMia is a shoplifter; she loves the excitement and the rush from stealing things. Then she gets caught and has to find a job in order to pay back the store for a $300 pair of shoes. She ends up working in a science lab on the college campus. In addition, She is dealing with an alcoholic mother and a dying grandfather. Lots of issues in this but it all ties together well enough.

    12. She steals. She is failing school. She dosen't have a job. Sounds so familiar. Her mom is a perfect replica of her daughter and there is many problems with that. She was caught on tape one day, stealing a shoe and then yelling and cussing at the guard that it was her shoe. Join her on her journey, step by step, to making her life better.

    25. At first I found the characters kind of wooden, but in the end I liked the fact that it was very different from most realistic fiction. Interesting message.
