I also think this book is really about a girl who wants to change her life and try not to be a stalker anymore.

1 quote from Carley Moore: 'The BOYS sign was different from the GIRLS sign, the letters more blocky and squared-off, more masculine than the curvier almost cursive letters of the GIRLS sign. Who decides these things, I wondere. ho decides that the boy and girl signs should be different, one hypermasculine and one hyperfeminine? Jeez, even these signs tell us how to behave. Boys-stocky, blocky, solid, and firm. Girls-wavy, curvy, pretty, and flowery. The BOYS sign was different from the GIRLS sign, the letters more blocky and squared-off, more masculine than the curvier almost cursive letters of the GIRLS sign. Who decides these things, I wondered.

Despite the use of the word "stalker," which (even though the author explains it) puts a pathological spin on a character who is essentially just overanxious and far too curious, Moore’s initially hard-to-like protagonist, Cammie Bliss, goes through a believable journey and transformation.

I had so much fun reading this book! It is refreshing to find a story with quirky and REAL characters. Cammie has an interesting perspective on her world, and you can't help but root for her as she finds her way in it.

Cammie Bliss has a problem. She really just wants to know what's going on with other people, but sometimes she takes it too far. She just can't help it. Maybe that's why everyone at her high school thinks she's a stalker. Cammie's not proud of the label, but she doesn't know what she can do to change people's minds about her. But when cute new guy Toby moves into town, Cammie realizes that this is her chance. Toby doesn't know anything about her or her history, and if she doesn't mess up, he never will. Cammie can be normal for once, at least in one person's eyes. But old habits die hard, and before she knows it, Cammie is back to her old ways. As the situation at home worsens and her social life plummets even farther, Cammie will have to figure out why she tends to act like a stalker and how to stop before her life completely falls apart.

The Stalker Chronicles is a hilarious yet thoughtful account of one girl's more unusual high school struggles. What I loved about Cammie's character was that she knew she had problems and was determined to work them out, even if she didn't know how. At the same time, though, her issues were definitely not as big as she made them out to be. Cammie really isn't your classic stalker. Yes, she does follow classmates and goes through someone's trash in this book, but she does these things because she's curious and, at the time of those actions, doesn't realize that what she's doing isn't really acceptable. Cammie's real problem is when it comes to filtering; her inability to determine what's okay to say or do in social situations is really what gets her into trouble. I would have liked for Moore to be a little more specific as to whether Cammie's "stalker" problem was just social ineptness or an actual psychological compulsion, and I think it would have made the story stronger. Otherwise, there isn't that much point to the central focus on stalking. Aside from that, The Stalker Chronicles is a very solid debut, and I look forward to seeing more from Moore (no pun intended!) in the future.

Such a good, well-written story. Yay for the weirdos and yay for the author's refusal to sugarcoat the realities of high school social life (even as she presents a perspective that's more complex than the usual mean girl fare).
