DescriptionPLEASE READ THIS! MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I'm sorry, I'm feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment. Here's the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I'm fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can't remember the last "good "decision I made. I can remember "plenty "of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that "accidentally "burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure. But see, that's why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That's right. I gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else decide which book I read for English. And whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: "chew" the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated! Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can't choose or have chosen for you--like who you fall in love with. And now everything's more screwed up than ever. But don't take my word for it. Read the book and decide for yourself. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll scream in frustration. Or maybe that's just me. After all, it's "my" life.

Reviews for My Life Undecided
Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog
Once I read the description, I knew that I had to read this, and My Life Undecided did not disappoint. It is such a neat and original premise, and Ms. Brody executes it amazingly.
It actually started out with a much more serious problem than I anticipated, but the main character, Brooks had a voice that kept me entertained, and managed to keep it lighthearted.
The characters were great, and it was fun to watch Brooks learn from her blog readers' input and how she grew into making her own decisions. Her best friend turned frenemy was well written and she really fit into her role. Her crushes, Brian and Hunter were completely different and desirable in their own ways. Another secondary character, Ms. Moody was great. I love how elderly have been featured in a few YA books recently, they have so much to offer, and I love old people.
It was fun to watch everything play out, try to figure out what the readers would pick for her, and how she reacts to her new experiences and choices she otherwise wouldn't have made.
This is a spectacular contemporary, with lots of laughs and some tender serious moments sprinkled in. by Brandi Kosiner (Brandi Breathes Books)

Trouble follows Brooklyn. It might have something to do with the horrible decisions she makes. After her arrest, her parents pick her up from jail and she has plenty of time to start thinking of how to make her life better. Because she's grounded for eternity.
To make matters worse, her BFF pretends the last five years didn't exist. Brooklyn, once a girl in the spotlight, becomes a wallflower.
She starts a blog where her readers will make her decisions for her. Should she try out for the rugby team? Should she join the debate club? Should she continue to eat lunch in the library or try the cafeteria? She refuses to make a decision before polling her blog readers.
But can she live with the choices her readers make?
MY LIFE UNDECIDED is a super-cute read. Brooklyn constantly makes the wrong decisions, but it ultimately leads her to discovering her true self. I loved the blend of technology with modern day. A fun book! by TeensReadToo
