Comments Counting Back From Nine

    I've recently finished reading this breathtaking novel, 'Counting Back From Nine' by Valerie Sherrard. The novel centres in on protagonist Laren, as she wriggles through possibly the most confusing, abstruse, and difficult year of her life. Throughout this novel, readers are transported through Laren's life in a beautiful world of free verse - a rare experience for myself, but also one that made look at this type of writing in a different light, and not because I was disappointed, but because I [...]

    Valerie Sherrad, the author of ‘Counting back from Nine’ wrote this book explaining the difficulties of a teenage girl after a sudden death and the loss of friendship. Laren Oliver was a 16 year old girl who always with her friends and having a good time, after a fatal tragedy, everything went downhill. When I first saw this book it did not look very interesting to me because the cover made me think that their would a lot of drama with friends and who is dating who. It was not as bad as I th [...]

    Do not leave poetry books lying around me.Review to come.

    Ok, so I was pretty skeptical about this book before I began it. I didn't get (and still don't totally) the whole idea of writing a novel in verse. However, once I was a few chapters in, I was pretty interested in the story and I thought that Sherrard's portrayal of the emotional toll of these two issues -- being ostracized by your friends because of something you'd done, and a death in the family -- was quite well done. High school student Laren (rhymes with Karen) has just stolen the boyfriend [...]

    The novel "Counting Back From Nine" by Valerie Sherrard follows a sixteen year old girl trying to cope with the death of her father. She must also deal with rejection from one big mistake that she made. This novel is written in free verse poetry. What I particularly liked about the book was that all the characters were relative enough that connecting with them wasn't nearly impossible, I also liked that the protagonist had character flaws which, in my opinion was good because that shows that the [...]


  • Mikaila

    This book is about a girl named Laren going through some troubles in her life, her friends give up on her and something else surprising happens, but you have to get it to get it.Well, to tell the truth, I picked this book because my library teacher introduced it to me, I would not even have looked at this book if it worn't for him (shout out to Mr.Gould). I finished the book because it actually related to me in a way, sometimes things happen and you have to chose what you want in life.I'd like t [...]

    This is a great choice for April, a novel written in poetry. Laren (pronounced like Karen) has a secret, and not a good one. Her new boyfriend is her best friend's ex-boyfriend. And what happens when her friends find out is something she isn't ready for. But Laren finds that there are much more difficult things to deal with in her immediate future, and she isn't ready for them either.As Laren works through these issues, she finds herself wondering about her own actions, and about those close to [...]

    Laren Oliver has broken the rules of friendship. At least according to her friends. Laren now needs to learn to accept the exclusion from her friends, and to find some new friends. Laren goes through big changes. Laren finds out who she is, and what she values in life. I picked this book up because I wanted to read another red maple book and this was the only one available. I finished this book because, I wanted to know if Laren's father had an affair or not. I also wanted to see Laren get her f [...]


  • Ila Jellyfish

    For the number of pages that were in this book i felt that it was written to the best of its ability. I enjoyed reading the format of this book and i wish it had been a little longer. however for the fact of the characters in this book, i thought that it was a tad unrealistic. i dont know anybody in my life that could be so selfish that they would not support their friend in a time of need, just to be true to their stubborn feelings. I felt that this book was left untold, my reasonings being i w [...]


  • Kelsi

    I thought this book was okay. I don't think her friends are very good ones if they stop talking to her even after what she did. They should have been way more supportive instead of taking her friends side. Not that it's a good thing what happened to her dad, but good things came out of it. One thing is that she now knows what her dad did. She's learned to be stronger even if she doesn't realize it.


  • Kimberly

    I loved the way this book was written and what it said. The free verse allows the reader to experience both the events as well as the feelings happening on the page. Valerie Sherrard does a wonderful job of drawing the reader in and keeping hold until the very last page. This is my latest birthday-present book for all 13-15 year old girls. A great read about loss, friendship, and finding yourself amidst all the clutter of real life.


  • Kristy

    Written in free verse, this book is about Laren, who feels alone because her core group of friends all ignore her after finding out she is dating one of their ex-boyfriends. Early in the plot line Laren's father dies in a car accident. Throughout the book, Laren is trying to deal with both of these things while also struggling with a bigger family secret that she slowly uncovers.

    This is a Red Maple nominee in the Forest of Reading. I love the writing style. It was a good story. The character makes some choices that she has to deal with the consequences and later learns from her mistakes. She debates having sex with her boyfriend but in the end she doesn't. It's not a huge part of the story. It doesn't say the age of the main character but I place her in high school. It seems a bit mature for 7/8's but I'm not sure.


  • Marsha

    This seemingly simple story will stay with you long after you put the novel down. I don't think Sherrard could have pulled this off in any format other than free verse. The stark words hit with precision. The ending will blow you away.


  • Zainab Aslam

    This book was so stupid i would never have even looked at it let alone read it if it wasn't for my teacher >:(


  • Tracy Tang

    Laren is very strong. She tries her best to forget about the death of her father, losing her best friend, and moving on in life. She is a great role model.


  • Batoul Abdel-rahmab

    This book was good. I really liked how the book is separated into Laren's different life events.


  • Mish

    Great poetry! Nice plot although I wish there was more detail. Overall, a sweet Red Maple selection. :)


  • Melanie

    Laren (rhymes with Karen) has committed a cardinal sin of friendship: she's taken up with her best friends ex-boyfriend, Scott. As a result she loses all of her friends and her Facebook friends list shrinks rapidly. Even Scott doesnt' seem as committed as he did at first.However, all that drama is nothing compared to the death of her father. His death sends the family scattering in all directions. Her 9-year-old brother decides he's a vegetarian and her mother has begun to make over anything tha [...]


  • Barbara

    Teen Laren Olivier has done the unspeaken--fallen in love with the boyfriend of one of her best friends. Not unsurprisingly, when their relationship goes public, her friends shun her, and she is forced to make new friends and see where things go with Scott. Almost from the beginning, though, she should have known better since their relationship is built on dishonesty and he seems more concerned with himself than Laren. When her father dies as the result of a car crash, she no longer has her fath [...]


  • Amy Lin

    Written in poems, this book is about girl named Laren who's trying to deal with her dad's death, and other typical teenage problems. Laren's boyfriend is her best friend's ex, people are saying that her dad was cheating on her mom before he died, and she's going through therapy. She starts to write letters to her dad about her life and what's she's been through since he passed. After making some new friends, and months of therapy, she's finally happier. The book closed up with Scott cheating on [...]


  • Regan

    This book was interesting and had a few twists. The main turning point in the book was when Lauren's father died all of a sudden. Then the author made another turn when she said her father was with another woman in the car crash. It always kept you wondering what was going to happen next. I also liked how the author wrote the book. It was in almost like a diary form, and was easy to read. This book, however is not on of my favourites, because I don't really like books that are realistic. In this [...]


  • Nicholle

    This book I thought would be a kind of romantic type book, I guess. but it was more about a tragedy in the main characters life her name is Laren (rhymes with Karen) she had some problems in her life but it was still a good book. the entire book is written as a poem, it was cool but I'm not sure what kind of poem it was, it was still cool. I thought I was actually pretty good because I thought It would be romantic but it was only like 10 pages in the whole book. so overall I liked it and would r [...]


  • Sarah

    I have mixed feelings about this verse novel. It makes great use of the verse form (an interesting note in the front mentions that the author original wrote it as prose and I think verse suited this story and tone really well). However, there's a bit of a heavy hand at work here in terms of the black and white consequences of Laren having a relationship with her BFF's ex. I guess part of this is because as an adult, I've seen this sort of relationship be quite successful and the friends have bee [...]


  • Nithusa

    Laren knows that dating her best friend 's ex boyfriend is wrong. But Laren can't control her feelings so she to dated him anyway. Her friends ditched Laren because she is dating her best friend's ex boyfriend.Later on her dad dies in car accident . Now she is facing loss and the truth.I picked up this book because when Mr. Gould told us about this story I wanted to read it because it's dramatic. I finished this book because I wanted to know more about the dad because I was more interested in hi [...]


  • Lucas S

    I thought that this book was okay, but I didn't really like it that much. One reason was that I didn't really connect with it at any part and i think that connecting with a story helps you better understand it and for that reason I did not understand most of the book. Her father dying was by far the most significant thing in the book and how she finds out that there was another woman in the car with her dad at the time of the crisisI thought was pretty cool but other then that i did not really l [...]


  • Lauren

    I thought counting back from nine was a well written book that was able to make you have certain feelings towards some characters. I liked how it was written in poems and although it wasn't as memorable, it did remind me of libertad. Some of the things that I didn't like in this story were the more unrealistic events like when Larens "friends" weren't there for her in a time of need or some of the reactions from the characters. Overall, I thought it was an okay book but if the author were able t [...]


  • Johnny

    I personally liked reading this story. I found it to be interesting to understand not only Laren's point of view, but also her friends. I have learned that her friends are the ones that when you make a huge mistake, forgiveness just disappears and never comes back. I find it odd how they expect you to like never make a huge mistake? We are not robots. Also Laren did understand she was wrong. The story is sad but overall it's still a good story. I recommend this book to those who like to read boo [...]


  • Vicky

    It was very cool and unique. I enjoy how this was very easy to understand. It is fully written in short and easy poems! Very different from the usual super descriptive books with so too much details on the surroundings: windows, curtains, floors, skies,everything! This novel brings so much of the plot into focus and less of the unnecessary points. "Quality over quantity" It tells us how much we can say in such few words.


  • Paula

    This is a small (badly titled) story. I had a lot of sympathy, even admiration, for Laren, the narrator and main character, but I got tired of being chained to her point of view. I wanted to know more about her brother, her mother, her friends. These characters were much better than one-dimensional, but they were all given bit parts in the all-Laren-all-the-time tale. I'm sure that was the point of the book, but it became tedious at times.
