Quarter 1, Blog 2

Sticky Fingers
Niki Burnham

Jenna's good traits are how positive she is and how focused she is. Jenna is determined that she will succeed in school, and she does. She's also very paranoid and has a low self-esteem. She wants to please everyone else, and doesn't really care about her happiness. She finally realizes that to make everyone else happy, she has to be happy to. The author brings out her traits by putting Jenna in situations where she is tested. For example, Jenna is determined to make Scott happy, so she goes to a party and drinks with him. Later she finds out that he put a date rape drug in her drink. She realizes after this that it's not about what everyone else wants, it's about what she wants to. She's also focused on meeting someone that she truly knows, and someone who won't pressure her into doing things that she doesn't agree with.


  1. This is a really good book. It was pretty slow at first but once you get going it gets really good.
    Do you think that happens a lot in relationships today? A lot of lying and things like that?

  2. I'm still curious as to how the title relates to the plot...
