    One Reply to “Exposure”

    1. This, my third novel, was inspired by a crisis my son and our family endured in 2009. Because of that, it's very close to my heart. I hope readers will embrace it as well.

    2. uh, something went very very wrong between this book and the inside of my head. I mean I picked it up and I thought wow that's such an interesting idea I know, I know that should be a warning to me, any book that looks like an interesting premise should be run my karen to make sure I'm not getting ultimately pulled into some kind of insane silliness. About 30 pages into this book I started to wonder if maybe this is what it was like to read jodi picoult. I mean I've never read her so I have no i [...]

    3. This book packs in a lot--several different versions of parental dilemmas, teenage love, lust, social media, cell phone cameras and texting, the law, and more. Much more. It's about society changing faster than the laws that bind it do, faster than most parents and school counselors can keep up with. It's about broad definitions and narrow minds. It's about what we want for ourselves, and what we want for our children. It's about what we expect of ourselves, and what our family expects of us. It [...]

    4. Young adult books are outside my normal reading genres, but this book came highly recommended by a friend. I was not impressed. Short version of the plot: Anthony Winter (18) and Amelia Wilkes (17) are high school seniors who believe they are in love. Anthony's mother teaches at the private school that Amelia attends, making it possible for Anthony to also attend even though he could not afford to otherwise. Amelia is an only child, whose parents - particularly her father - have her whole life p [...]

    5. What a reader should know before starting this book:_ For most of the duration of this story, you'll probably experience long periods of incredulity. You'll probably feel some violence towards one of the characters. Feelings of rage and angst, can also appear. If you're anything like me and don't especially love dramas, you'll probably want to finish it as fast as you can, and move on to another book. But reading this story has another side effect: It is addictive. Unbelievable _ although unfort [...]

    6. Romeu e Julieta, o original de William Shakespeare, é uma tragédia (literalmente) e eu, tendo já lido a peça original entrei um bocado a medo neste história. Porque fiquei logo agarrada às personagens principais, o Anthony e a Amelia e tinha medo que o fim fosse similar ao da peça. E não me apetecia nada finais tristes! Mas não querendo desvendar nada do enredo, posso dizer que o final bebe da peça de Shakespeare mas não chega a beber o copo todo! Gostei muito da história, apesar de [...]

    7. Exposure is a well written captivating love story about teenagers caught committing the very modern crime of "sexting". It's the author's third book and I can honestly say it's her very best. Her writing has matured, is more assertive and her use of language and vocabulary is beautiful. The characters are likable and the situations are believable. It's a book I truly didn't want to put down! The book's appeal is certain to cross many lines: parents of teens will be able to read it and perhaps op [...]

    8. Wow! Grab your book club and get ready to sink your teeth into this one, ladies! I'm referring to ladies because this is like a lifetime movie on steroids. The subject matter of sexting in this book is very timely, as teenagers everywhere are dealing with what is appropriate to send to a classmate and what is not.This book centers around the relationship of Amelia and Anthony, young teens in love.One day, Amelia's father comes home from work, only to find his daughter's laptop left behind. Then, [...]

    9. Really good contemporary story. I always enjoy this author. I enjoyed the two main characters in the story and a few of the parents but not all of them. I must say when I got near the end of the book, I went to the last page to make sure one of the main characters was still alive. This would not have been as good of a story of there had been a death and it was pretty close. Will look forward to another book by this author. I did read her book about Zelda Fitzgerald which was made into a TV serie [...]

    10. This was picked for my Ladies Book Club and I really enjoyed this book. This reminds me of a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Almost. And if you read the book you will see what I mean by almost.Quick read and would recommend to those who like a good love story without being too sappy.

    11. Having never read anything by Therese Fowler before, I dived into this novel not really knowing what to expect. It was one of those books where I read the synopsis, thought it seemed to have a very nice plot idea and instantly bought it.I can't say I loved it, but I didn't completely dislike it either.The plot is pretty consistent throughout the entire novel and the character's reactions to every single situation is realistic enough to make you want to keep reading. One of the details that I par [...]

    12. A ideia do livro é engraçada e mostra que por vezes, por mais que as pessoas nos queiram ajudar e pensem que sabem tudo sobre a nossa vida, só pioram. Como por exemplo o pai da Amelia, oh personagem mais antipática, a pensar que sabia tudo sobre a vida da filha e afinal foi por culpa dele que Amelia e Anthony foram presos e houve aquele escândalo todo!! Que raiva me deu, sempre que ele aparecia em cena! Gostei do princípio do livro, o romance em segredo de Amelia e Anthony estava a ser mui [...]

    13. Um segredo profundo e enamorado possibilita o reencontro diário entre duas almas gémeas que nasceram para se acompanharem uma à outra, tanto no amor como na paixão que partilham pelas artes performativas. Mas um segredo desta importância, quando revelado, pode ser o gatilho que disparará a mais certeira e conflituosa das balas uma bala capaz de encurralar o futuro de um rapaz inocente, de enfurecer um pai ultra protector e de, aos poucos, matar o interior de uma mulher apaixonada.‹‹Esc [...]

    14. Não compreendo a comparação deste livro com a peça “Romeu e Julieta” nunca li a peça mas vi o filme (não deve ser assim tão diferente) e na minha opinião, não há nada no livro que possa ser semelhante, tirando a premissa de um amor proíbido.Para além da premissa do “amor proibido” a autora aborda também vários temas e alguns controversos. Como por exemplo, as relações familiares, ao contrario de Anthony que tem uma relação de cumplicidade e confiança como a mãe, Amél [...]

    15. Confesso que este livro me irritou um bocado. Não por não ter gostado da escrita mas pela tempestade num copo de água que se fez por causa de 2 miúdos apaixonados, que se calhar não procederam da melhor maneira mas que no fundo apenas cometeram um pecado: amarem-se. Suponho que nós pais nunca queremos que os nossos filhos cresçam mas é a ordem da vida e claro, se calhar achamos que nunca ninguém é suficiente bom para os nossos filhos, mas fazer todo este chinfrim, achei um bocadinho de [...]

    16. In Exposure, Therese Fowler has written her most gripping novel to date—a ripped-from-the-headlines story of ardent young love and a nightmarish legal maelstrom that threatens to destroy two families.Amelia Wilkes’s strict father does not allow her to date, but that doesn’t stop the talented, winsome high school senior from carrying on a secret romance with her classmate Anthony Winter. Desperately in love, the two envision a life together and plan to tell Amelia’s parents only after she [...]

    17. If I could only review this book in a few words it would read like this: "Run, do not walk, to your nearest bookstore and buy this book or download it to your ereader. This is a book that cannot be missed!"Okay it was more than a few words, but that pretty much sums it up for me. This is one of my best reads of the year. Let's move onto why since I have gushed enough and not backed it up, because people generally read reviews to find out why the reviewer liked or did not like the book (or in thi [...]

    18. Exposure was the story of Amelia Wilkes and Anthony Winter who were high school seniors, have dreams of staring in Broadway and deeply in love. Their relationship was an open secret in school--their friends know as well as Kim Winter, Anthony's mother, who was a teacher at the school--but Amelia's strict parents do not know. Amelia and Anthony planned to tell her parents of their relationship when Amelia turns eighteen and legally an adult. However, when her father discovers naked pictures of An [...]

    19. Uma história completamente intrigante e de um certo modo fascinante.Escândalo mostra-nos como o sistema jurídico por vezes não funciona.E como por vezes a família ao pensar que faz o melhor pelos filhos,nem sempre é o melhor.Amélia (de dezassete anos)vem de uma família rígida e principalmente o pai que é super protector, no entanto tem completa confiança na sua filha. Querendo esta seguir para o teatro, o seu pai diz que isso não será nenhum futuro, que a vida dos artistas era uma m [...]

    20. Exposure by Therese Fowler is a story of young love gone terribly wrong. Amelia and Anthony are high school seniors bidding their time until they can go to college together. They plan on going to school in New York and want to try to make names for themselves on Broadway. Until then their relationship is being kept under wraps, so Amelia’s overbearing father, Harlan Wilkes doesn’t get wind of it and tear them apart. Harlan had Amelia’s life all planned out for her, and her theater loving b [...]

    21. Em Escândalo é nos contada a história de dois jovens que por causa de um pai super protector e muitos mal entendidos acabam por ser arrastados para uma situação que rapidamente sai fora de controlo. Ambos os jovens são presos e a única maneira de acabarem com as acusações de que são vítimas é de uma maneira trágica.No geral é um livro com uma linguagem simples e que consegue ser cativante. É-nos apresentado apresentado o ponto de vista de um vasto leque de personagens, no entanto [...]

    22. I won an ARC on . This was my first time reading Therese Fowler. I really enjoyed the novel. I think it's a book that can cross the YA and Adult lines. It is told in third person from many of the characters in the story, which kept the story fast paced for me. The topic is completely current to today, which I find refreshing. The whole idea of the system taking over like it did in this book is terrifying. It makes you really think and question what you would have done if in the same situation. I [...]

    23. Aquilo que de início parecia uma estória bem interessante, foi-se, com o passar das folhas, tornando numa estória cansativaUm casal de adolescentes apaixonados, mas impedidos de assumir a sua relação por imaturidade e receio da reacção de um pai preconceito e que está longe de ser perfeito, mas que exige a perfeição à sua filha de 17 anosMesmo depois de tudo o que o pai de Amélia faz e que a prejudica a ela e a Anthony, ela parece incapaz de o contrariar e de assumir o namoro, deixan [...]

    24. I enjoyed this book until the last couple of chapters. All the build-up about Amelia's mom and what she was hiding, why she acted as she did and then we don't even "hear" the conversation or find out what the deal was??? Same thing with her dad's attitude. He was sooo unreasonable and then POW he does a 180 for no reason. Weird. Maybe I'm just dense but I still don't see the point of going out in the cold and getting hypothermia! How did that change all the minds that had been so rigid for the r [...]

    25. Headlines rarely reveal the truth. EXPOSURE does. This nail-biting story of families caught in a collision of teen romance, the age of instant disclosure, an over-zealous prosecutor, and the media, provides an incisive stay-awake-till-you-finish exploration of hot-button issues. I truly couldn’t put it down.

    26. Reading the reviews I get the feeling she's mining Picoult territory: dramatic ripped-from-the=headlines plots that involve a great deal of legal proceedings, and the fun twist of making the victims those who are normally the perpetrators.

    27. Crammed full of one-dimensional characters and improbable situations, Exposure is positively ridiculous. Written for people who claim that they "don't like to read", Jodi Picoult fans, and teenage girls in the mood for "outrage lite".

    28. I really can't wait to read EXPOSURE! Ahh! I can't believe I won a copy! SO exciting! Review upcoming (of course!) As an aside, I LOVE the cover!

    29. Todos nós sabemos quem eram os personagens Romeu e Julieta. Creio que posso dizer com absoluta certeza que estes são uns dos pares romântico mais falados e adorados no mundo inteiro. A criação de Shakespeare que é conhecida internacionalmente conquistou milhões e milhões de corações e o par ficou imortalizado como um dos mais intensos da história da literatura mundial. E porquê? Todos nós sabemos igualmente, que o fruto proibido é o mais apetecido e o romance entre Romeu e Julieta [...]

    30. Young adults make a questionable, but intentionally private decision. Unfortunately they quickly turn into victims in the plans of those much powerful than themselvesa father who wants tight control and a District Attorney with his own agenda. Fowler draws well developed characters. Although her leads are young, they never come off as "dumb kids." They make a choice that may not have been wise, but it's one mistake. It makes them sympathetic. The constant references to a certain play made the en [...]
