    1. My faith in the public's ability to choose good literature has been completely destroyed by this book. Written by a 15 year old French writer, I cannot believe it has been published in multiple languages, and that it's average review is nearly a four. You must be kidding. The writing is incredibly stilted (I am feeling a great deal of pity for Middle School English teachers, if this passes for "really good" teen writing), and the plot has so many holes that it isn't even coherent in places. Near [...]


    2. Jade, Opal and Amber are three totally different girls.Jade is rich living with her father, spends half her time daydreaming, and the other half landed in reality.Opal is living in with her aunts in a normal town, with everyday-life destroying her fantasy.Amber is poor living with her sick mother, with her mind never in the real life, always dreaming.They all have the same birth day, and when they turn 14 their parents tell them they are adopted and give them their birth stones. After that they [...]


    3. I first read this when I was 10 or 11, and rather liked it (probably partly because it was written by a teen, and I also want to be an author), so much so that when I saw it available in the used book store I shop at frequently a year or two later, I bought it. When I googled the book to learn more about the author, I was pretty surprised to find out that it had mainly negative reviews. For the intended audience of ages 9-12, it is certainly an entertaining read (for example, I loved the idea of [...]


    4. What the fuck?I mean, what the fuck?I'm not sure I've ever read a book this terrible before. The only one that could possibly be as bad as this one is Trapped by Michael Northrop. And even then, it's close. This is very close to the worst book I've ever read. I have so many issues with it that I'm afraid I'm going to forget some. But, here we go. Here is a list of things that made this a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad reading experience:Black-and-white moralityI'm not sure if this is the [...]


    5. This book was quite lacking, to say the least. The characters were underdeveloped, the plot was a little shaky and the two or three instances of love at first sight were what really made reading this book a chore. I think that there were some very good ideas and parts in this book, but the writing just wasn't very good. Honestly, I was relieved when I finished it.


    6. Before I begin, I'll admit it. I haven't read this book in sometime and it is an old childhood favourite. This is, in fact, a review that I've edited from 2012. So forgive me for how terrible it is, but I really want to share with you one of the books that made my childhood special.It was actually a giant fluke that I found this book. When I go to libraries and can't find anything to read I generally stand in front of a shelf, close my eyes and pull out a random book. Sometimes they're good, and [...]


    7. It is obvious that this book was written by someone that cannot actually write but was published anyways. The age is irrelevant, people can write masterpieces at whatever age they write their work, this is far from a masterpiece. There are very talented young people, and old people, out there that have written literature, whether for young-adults, or elderly women, truly valuable books. But this is the type of book that gets published. I have read so many brilliant books with less ratings and re [...]


    8. 3 stars! Das Orakel von Oonagh is definitely an intersting book and I think the fact that it has been written my a teenage girl commands respect. The whole concept of three girls that have never met each other and are now forced to fight together in order to protect their world against evil forces has been intriguing and I loved the first few chapters, where we get to know the girls and where they finally meet. I however had the feeling that the world they are living in has been a little underde [...]


    9. I picked this book up in the kids' section at Barnes and Noble a couple of years back. I remember reading it and thinking, "Is this the best she can do?" This story follows the tale of three totally different girls as they a) find these strange gems, b) quarrel non-stop about nothing at all, c) fall in love with completely irrational men over the course of just a few hours, and d) fight the oh-so-scary villain whose purpose is unclear. Along the way, they run into crabby old ladies, orc-like min [...]


    10. Onhan tämä nyt parempi kuin mitään mitä itse olisin kirjoittanut 12-vuotiaana, mutta ei tää nyt silti hyvä ole.


    11. Aren't you excited to read the book which was written when the author was 12? I think this book will crawl up to your Top 3 favourite book chart.The book consists the three girls;Jade, Opal, and Amber but when they turned into 14, their life were changed. On their 14th birthday, they faced the tragic of knowing the people they thought that they were their parents turned out that they were their foster parents. They each were given red velvet pouches which contained stones that tells them about t [...]


    12. Challenge #44 A book that was originally written in a different language (popsugar 2015 reading challenge: tinyurl/mmbkthd)


    13. This review has some spoilers, but if you haven't read this book, you may not understand everything I'm saying. Even if you have read it, you may not understand me:)UmuhwellI finished reading this a few days ago, and I'm still trying to figure out what the point of it was. I can't believe that this girl is a 'literary sensation'! Perhaps it lost something in the translation from French, though. My dad says that in French, flowery language actually sounds good. I don't mind descriptive writing, b [...]


    14. If you come to this book expecting great literature, or the next epic fantasy novel, you'll be disappointed. But if you come to it to read a story written by a thirteen year old girl who loves to write and has a healthy mix of creativity and imagination in her life, you'll probably be pleased with what you find. I've certainly read less solid works by adults. Sure there may be holes in the plot, or some other problems in the writing, but the story works just fine. The plot is pretty straightforw [...]


    15. All of my reviews are spoiler free (unless stated otherwise) so you can go ahead and read my review!First things first, I just want to point out that the author of this book first started writing it when she was 12 and by the time she was 14, it was a published book. Just let that sink in for a moment.WOW. The fact that a 12 year old can come up with such a cool idea and then put pen to paper and create a 400+ page book that is good enough to be published just blows my mind! This is only going t [...]


    16. Imagine a world in a parallel universe, where everything is owned and monitered by the shadowy 'Council of Twelve' Three very different girls from three very different lives are brought together by the mysterious fate that changes everything, starting on the night of their fourteenth birthday. Suddenly, their lives are intertwined by 'The Prophecy' something so old and so important that it's secret is always guarded by the Council of Twelve. Why? Because it reveals the truth about Fairytale, the [...]


    17. I randomly picked this book off the shelf and read the book note by the publisher. The author is 15 from Romaniahe said "Once in a while a book emerges that is a truly captivating blend of adventure, powerful emotion and sensitivity, a novel that is going to be cherished for many years." I decided I HAD to read itOkay, so I am finished and was amazed that a 14 year old wrote itere was some vocab I had to look up. :) I didn't give it a 5 because I felt that some of the conflicts were too easily r [...]


    18. I'm sure if this book had been written by an adult it never would have been published. I suppose it's well written for a teen, but as a teen myself, I know several people who could write books that were much more imaginative and well written. I'm not sure if the writing was so stilted in the original French, but even if it wasn't, the plot was still boring and predictable. I found this book very disappointing. This book was pretty good for being written by a fourteen year old, but not good enoug [...]


    19. 5 Words: Prophecy, war, friendship, family, good.I loved this book when I was a young teen. But reading it again over a decade later it just didn't have the same magic.


    20. Η αλήθεια είναι πως έβλεπα πολύ καιρό το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο στο ράφι του βιβλιοπωλείου και πολύ περισσότερο, στο ράφι της δικιάς μου βιβλιοθήκης ωστόσο, πάντα κάτι μεσολαβούσε και έπαιρνε προτεραιότητα. Αυτή τη φορά όμως αντιστάθηκα στον πειρασμό να καταπιαστώ με κάποιο [...]


    21. Quite possibly one of the worst books I've ever read. I should've known when I saw the title, but even badfiction can be compelling in a comedic sort of way. The frame plot is about a girl in a hospital who is dying and she has some sort of dream in which she either dreams that the main story takes place or has some sort of past life regression, which turns out to be the main story. Now this concept in and of itself can be very interesting, if done well. It's a shame it wasn't because I'd loved [...]


    22. How much was lost or added in translation? The writing is both mature (for a 12-year-old) and blatant fairy princess fodder. I listened to the audio book with the children whenever we got in the car and I felt it was entertaining enough. The reader made all kinds of voices and I felt she did a good job even though her male characters sounded lazy, like surfer dudes. I don't mean to criticize, but the best thing about this book is that it was written by a pre-teen. She was patient and tried to pu [...]


    23. Tas tik bija nostaļğijas gājiens xD Būtībā esmu šai grāmatai parādā savu dzīvi / rakstīšanas karjeru, tāpēc uz sava darba desmitgadi pārlasīju.Objektīvi spriest nevaru, šī ir bērnības klasika. Joprojām vienu mežu saucu par Ornimelu galīgi nepiedomājot par izcelsmi. Sākumā spriedu, ka būs pa blatu jāieliek 3 zvaigznes ne 2, bet ievads bija tik briesmīgs, ka vairāk izskatījās pēc 2-ne-1 situācijas :D Cilvēkiem līdz 18 gadu vecumam vispār derētu aizliegt izdo [...]


    24. I was expecting a good read since I was hearing all these positive reviews about this book but I was extremely disappointed. And since appalled may be too strong of a word, I will just say that I was also unhappy with what I found. The story isn't too bad but this book itself was poorly written. I don't want to say that it's because a teen wrote it since I know that there are many talented teen authors out there, but you can definitely tell that the author was inexperienced. The writing was horr [...]


    25. I tried my very best to give this book a fair chance. However, I found it very tiresome and the plot didn't seem to flow well. The three "characters" had no demensions or depth, except for their financial statuses in life.The chapters were long and seemed to remain on one subject, barely moving forward until the next "chapter", which I also found most unbearable. I gave up on this book half way through, and do not intend to return to it.


    26. Boring, repetitive, desperately in need of some direction. This was a big hit in Europe and young preteens will love it because it was written by a young lady who has been mentioned as somewhere between 12 and 14 years old. However, I had to drag myself through it. I'm not even sure why I bothered. Three girls discover they have a similar destiny and reluctantly embark upon a quest to save their world. Yadda yadda.


    27. It isn't often that I come across my mother-in-law's maiden name, so I thought I'd give this book a try. And it was definitely trying. I looked up the author and discovered that she was young (not quite "The Young Visiters" young, but still) and managed to forgive many of the bizarre pieces in the story as simply immature. But I don't think I'd be willing to read this again.


    28. Even though the book is nearly 400 pages, everything felt too rushed, like Bujor was trying to write the novel too quickly, just to get it over with. Had she taken her time and gone into more detail and plot explanation, the book would have been a lot better and not so much fluff. A rather disappointing read.


    29. lost in translation? I feel that that is what must have happened here. This book was terrible, I had to force myself through it. The plot it cliche to the extreme, the dialogue unwitty, the characters two dimensional, not to mention complete beeotches. I think that must of this was lost in translation because if it wasn't, then this is complete crap.


    30. This book was written by a 15 year old, and it definitely shows. It was soooo incredibly cheesy, totally unimaginative, and not very skillfully written. I read this when I was in middle school, and even back then I thought it was silly. I'm really confused as to why everyone loves it so much.
