    1. I really appreciated how Gene took the time to set up the story. With lines like "I didn't mean to do it - things just got out of hand" the first chapter was devoted solely to hooking the reader. The next several chapters introduced this crazy family and the events that led to the book's misadventures. It took a little too long to get to the meat of the story for my taste but the set up was interesting and funny enough that it kept my interest despite its length.I see this as a great stepping st [...]


    2. "The Family That Wasn't" was entertaining and only took me a couple hours to finish. When I heard the plot of the book, I knew it would be interesting and the book delivered. Even though the book started off a bit slow, there was a lot of character development for John's family, the rest of the book sped by. Usually I am not one for added length to books, but I actually wish there was more of "The Family That Wasn't". I think the book would have been better if there had been more time spent with [...]


    3. Originally published at my blog Chasing Empty PavementsWhen Gene Twaronite contacted me about reading and reviewing his two novels The Family that Wasn't and My Vacation in Hell, I was a little apprehensive because they seemed geared towards the MG audience and not that I have a problem with that, I just wasn't sure if it was going to be my cup of tea. BUT, I was so surprised by these novels! I absolutely loved them!The Good: Oh my lord, this book was hilarious. It was tongue-in-cheek funny and [...]


    4. There's such a thin line between middle grade and young adult that I'm not so sure there's a definitive line at all. I realized by the blurb that this was more middle grade than the young adult I typically enjoy, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to take the chance. However, the concept and the cover drew me in, so I decided to give it a shot.I'm glad I did. It started off a little slow as we are introduced to how John's crazy family came to be, but it soon picks up and the action doesn't stop from t [...]


    5. The Family That Wasn’t is an interesting story that focuses on John Boggle (Boggle is actually just an acronym for his actual last name of Bazukas-O'Reilly-Geronimo-Giovanni-Li Choy-Echeverria) and he one day writes his family off and ends up going on an adventure to get them back after the new family he created turned out to not be so fantastic.The Family that Wasn’t is a really quick read so it didn’t take me long to read through it at all. It starts off with a little bit of background i [...]


    6. What a fun, quirky, eye-opening story that really reminds you that you can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family, and also that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, although it may appear that way from where your standing sometimes. John Boggle who's the main character whose a 13-year old boy who hates his family, and thinks their weird, and don't people to know how weird they are, so he constantly escapes up to the attic and writes about a family that he wishes he w [...]


    7. Be careful for what you dream / wish for it might just come true. John's dream comes true and he is now loved, rich etc all the things he wanted. But at what cost. He goes off to hunt his old family as he feels guilty and realizes there might not be a better place then home.I enjoyed this book. It will appeal to both teenagers and adults. The story was humorous at times which help with the dark side of the story. I though the characters were well thought out along with the story line. I understa [...]

    9. Originally posted at Fragments of Life.John Boggle was not comfortable with his family. Each member had his-her own brand of craziness. His brother, Bruno, was a giant who was fond of performing surgery on animals and singing the blues with his harmonica and zither. His half-sister was weirdly fascinated with the planet Venus and claims the existence of Venusians. His mother works at a garbage collecting facility, constantly bringing home ‘good trash’ that they could still use. Her collectio [...]
