But sister, it s the opposite of hallelujahIt s the opposite of being youYou don t know cause it just passes right through youYou don t know what I m going through So goes the title track of Jens Leckman s 2005 EP, The Opposite of Hallelujah It s also one of two epigraphs that appear in Anna Jarzab s sopho novel, which shares the name The song is deceptively upbeat, almost perky, yet the lyrics beautifully fit Jarzab s contemplative and sincere novel about faith, grief and familial relationships [...]

Obviously I think this book is amazing because I wrote it, but it s not like you re looking to me for an objective opinion about it or anything Five stars

Going into The Opposite of Hallelujah, I had mildly high expectations, knowing that my friend Katie of Blook Girl loved it Still, I wasn t so sure about the subject matter, and just really didn t know that much about it, since I pretty scrupulously avoid reviews of books I plan to read, even from my favorite reviewers Katie was completely right about this book The Opposite of Hallelujah gave me so many feels sadness, awkwardness, hope, and fangirling happiness.My very favorite thing about The Op [...]

I rarely say this, but after 450 pages of this book, I actually wanted about 100 or 150 Jarzab s story had me hooked and her writing was well paced and engaging but there were a few things that felt like they could have used a little development to take this from a good book to a great book.Also, this is one of the most misleading book descriptions I ve read in a long time Caro has pretended her sister doesn t exist for 12 years She never mentions Hannah because the one time she did, way back [...]

2.5 5What s interesting is how absolutely unlikeable Caro started out to be, yet I continued hoping that there was something to the girl Seeing herself as an only child is what starts it all she s spoiled, whiny and all the flaws pointed out in her were accurate From lying to being self unwilling to bend, I was seriously hard pressed in finding anything to like in her Bit by bit though I could see a little into her why s The interaction with her family, her sister and mother especially, had me [...]

I loved this book The story centers around sixteen year old Caro, whose life as an only child is interrupted by the return of her much older sister, Hannah, who has moved home after suddenly leaving a convent and life as a nun As Caro struggles to deal with her changing family dynamic, she must also navigate the rest of her teenage life friends, school, and of course, boys One of my favorite things about this book is the way it shifts back and forth between Caro s two worlds On one hand is the s [...]

I loved the cover of this book and the font on the front was calling me Something about having your sister move away to be a nun and then suddenly moving back home because she has decided that was not her calling , it got me to thinking What would cause someone to finally decide to switch gears and move back home after 8 years of being in a convent and how would that be for everyone involved There had to be a deeper mystery involved and I was ready to spend a few days with my nose inside this bo [...]

The Opposite of Hallelujah October 9, 2012 Random House Children s Books 464 pgsCaro Mitchell was a just young girl when her older sister, Hannah, left home to join a cloistered convent Hannah never really explained her reasons for becoming a nun and now, eight years later, she is not offering an explanation for her sudden arrival back home Caro has gone from feeling like an only child to sharing her home with a stranger The sisters relationship is strained and awkward, to say the least Caro s i [...]

Anna Jarzab writes eloquently about the sometimes enigmatic nature of sisterhood blood isn t always thicker than water , and discusses spirituality and Catholicism in such a way that makes readers want to know , rather than less And that s no easy feat, especially when it comes to including religious themes in a YA book unless, of course, the reader is specifically seeking inspirational literature this book doesn t fall into that genre, I don t think.It s been several years since Carolina Caro M [...]

Anna Jarzab s sopho novel is a contemporary that doesn t resemble most of the others I ve been reading lately For one thing, the romantic plotline isn t the focus Protagonist Caro Mitchell s relationship with her sister and her parents is much important to the story But it s also about Caro and her relationship to herself, who she wants to be and what she believes.Caro isn t always the most likeable character She lies, a lot, and like most habitual liars she does it for stupid reasons She can a [...]

I was hesitant to pick up this book Mainly, because of the whole religion thing.I m not religious I mean, I go to a catholic school and everything but it just isn t my thing and my school just made me loathe it A while ago, I came to terms with the fact that my problem is not God himself he might or not exist, we don t know At least, I don t but religion itself, any religion The hypocrisy of it, one of the things I observed at school and all the bullshit I ve listened Not that all religious peo [...]

I m sorry, but I was kind of disappointed with this I was so looking forward to it, but it fell flat Caro wasn t likable enough, Hannah s issues seemed both convoluted and spread too thin, and many of the characters reacted how the author needed them to react rather than a realistic reaction Caro didn t need two best friends because of the slim role they both played A lot of little bits and pieces included were wasted, as they were never mentioned again The science project came out of nowhere, [...]

BlookGirl s Summary The Opposite of Hallelujah is a thought provoking contemporary novel for young adults that addresses real issues, such as grief, forgiveness, faith, and self discovery Using familiar and comfortable subjects, such as art and science, The Opposite of Hallelujah is accessible to a wide audience, no matter their religious persuasion I would highly recommend this novel to any teen, and believe that it will give them a great starting point to thinking critically about life and its [...]

450 pages gulp Not that it s a big deal, I ll be done with this in less than one and a half day, but still I ve been avoiding this book, telling myself, one quick light hearted read over and over again because I get this vibe from the book that it s gonna be sad if not down right depressing I mean, even the cover makes my mind slump it s shoulders in part grief feeling the sadness this book will give me and part resignition since it knows I will really read this now _______________________Don t [...]

2.25 stars.I didn t like this book as much as I thought I would Some chapters were so incredibly boring, but this book was okay I didn t feel like there was anything interesting that happened until the book was almost over This book could have been shortened A lot I couldn t connect to the characters, and felt they lacked in development.I honestly don t know if I would recommend this book Probably not.

This was strangely paced and uneven Also, I feel that several of the subplots detracted from the overall story, but the story wasn t necessarily involved enough, either I don t know Therefore the dreaded 2 star rating.

When Caro was eight, her 19 year old sister joined a convent, and Caro has hardly seen her since But now, eight years later, Hannah is returning home No one knows what happened or why Hannah left the convent Now it feels like a stranger is living in Caro s house Something happened to Hannah, something that Caro has no memory of, that is still haunting Hannah today, and won t let her move on.I didn t like this when I first started reading it, but then I ended up liking it a lot I wasn t enjoying [...]

I just don t know about The Opposite of Hallelujah Good writing, decent characters, interesting premise But, it was so looooooong, and really nothing happens until the last 1 4 of the book.Caro s sister, who has been in a convent for over 10 years and left when Caro was 8 years old is leaving the convent and coming back home to live Caro doesn t know her sister, Hannah, who is now 27, and doesn t feel any great attachment to her.When Hannah comes home, there is obviously something wrong She does [...]

I love when a book just completely takes me by surprise I wasn t expecting much from The Opposite of Hallelujah, but I ended up loving it It s the kind of book that sneaks up on you there wasn t one special moment where I found myself going wow , and only after finishing it did I notice how amazing the book had been The Opposite of Hallelujah is subtle in all the right ways.Caro is such a fun MC I didn t like her or agree with her a lot of the time, but I didn t mind, because it was just so much [...]

I randomly selected The Opposite of Hallelujah from the Young Adult shelf at the library, and I am so grateful I did Caro Mitchell is a 16 year old high school student living in a typical self centered bubble she spends hours with her friends each day, comes home to talk on the phone, and then sneaks out to spend time with them She is also an exceptional student who studies hard and excels in her honors courses Caro has just one secret, which is devastating to her her sister Hannah is a nun who [...]

At the heart of The Opposite of Hallelujah, I think the message is that your actions don t just effect yourself A lie, a decision to leave, hiding from your problems, and pain can t be isolated to just you, it creates a wave to the people you love and that love you.Caro is a very relatable narrator I could relate with her anger, pain and doubt about what was going on in the world around her as well as her curiosity whether related to learning or uncovering the past of her prodigal sister She is [...]

Review originally posted on my blog hobbitsies 2012 11 the oppI really enjoyed reading The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab I haven t read All Unquiet Things, but after reading The Opposite of Hallelujah, I m definitely going to pick it up.The Opposite of Hallelujah is a slow moving, but emotional and enjoyable contemporary I wouldn t recommend it to people who need constant action because it is definitely on the slower side, but that really worked me I enjoyed getting to know each characte [...]

This is a big book filled with big ideas What does it mean to be sisters How do you deal with grief What about jealousy What do you think about faith and God How do you handle change Caro is just about to start her junior year in high school when the sister who left to join a convent when Caro was eight comes home Hannah comes home sick and depressed and without a plan for her life Caro doesn t know how to cope When she was younger she got the name Caroliar for telling her school friends that Ha [...]

Anna Jarzab, author of All Unquiet Things, writes a passionate mystery in her novel The Opposite of Hallelujah In this novel Caro, the sixteen year old main character, has lived most of her life as an only child Her only sister is eleven years older than her and has been absent most of Caro s life When Caro was still in elementary school her sister, Hannah, left home and moved into a convent to become a nun Caro never understood why, but as the years past she thought less and less of her sister [...]

Admittedly, when I started this novel I wasn t a fan Carolina the protagonist screamed quintessential grouchy teenager I hated her I even told some of my students that the struggle was real to get through this But, in the end, I was wrong Carolina isn t abnormal in her behavior in fact, she s spot on.Jarzab has created a witty, sharp tongued female lead that is struggling with the sudden return of her sister, Hannah Hannah left at nineteen to become a nun at Sisters of Grace Her family grappled [...]

This was another Netgalley ARC which I chose for the slight mystery element mentioned in the blurb I loved the way the author wove discussion of religion and belief through her narrative it never came across as preachy or overbearing I wish YA would address these deeper questions, because teens are SO searching for meaning answers at this stage of life Anyway, the main conflict in the story is between Caro and her recently returned sister, Hannah, who has renounced the convent and is at loose e [...]

Caro hasn t seen her sister for years, and for a while told people that she was dead, since it was easier to explain than the truth that Hannah was in a nunnery But when Hannah returns after 8 years in the nunnery, Caro discovers that the truth is never all that easy to explain, or even to understand.This books starts like a fairly typical teenage coming of age story, distinguished by the extremely strong and well done voice and by the hint of mysteries buried in the past But while it goes throu [...]

Caro s sister joined a convent 8 yrs ago Caro doesn t remember much about her sister She s 16 and has basically been an only child for half her life So when her sister announces that she is leaving the convent and moving home, Caro has a hard time dealing with this For one she never told any of her friends that she has a sister She isn t use to sharing her parents attention And they are so happy Hannah is back that everything needs to revolve around her And last Hannah seems to think they can be [...]

The voice of Caro was beautifully done The author had an amazing ability to use Caro s POV to 1 express what she is really feeling2 give huge insights into many family dynamics3 give huge insights into many school and relationship dynamics.Bravo This book shows a way out for families who are struggling through something dark in this case really dark in the past It was beautiful in that Caro needed all the support of her family, friends, teachers and which was very nice for me to see a minister T [...]
