They live above their parents' diner and help out cooking and serving food after school and on weekends.

Jody decides to help Jolene get Liam instead.I really love b [...]

      It's feels very strange to be writing a review of this book, because, honestly the best advice I can give you before you read this book is not to read anything about this book before you start this book. Seriously, stop reading this review. NOW.Only kidding. You know I would never partake in any of the spoiling of the clever story without huge amounts of prior warning. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this is going to be a tricky one. HmmmLet's just start with the things I loved abo [...]

      SPOILERS COMING SO DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THE BOOKOkay. Reading these reviews it looks like I'm the only one who didn't enjoy this book. I have to be honest, I didn't finish it. Normally I would never leave a book unfinished but after the big plot twist I couldn't get back into it. The problem was, I'd imagined Jody in my head and after that I couldn't change that image I had of her so late in the book. WHO CHANGES THE GENDER OF A CHARACTER HALFWAY THROUGH THE BOOK?!Okay, s [...]

      What's up with Jody Barton is a fantastic YA contemporary read which I enjoyed thoroughly. It's fun, original and a breath of fresh air in the current UK YA market which has been flooded with paranormal and dystopian fiction.This review is deliberately short mainly because I don't want to give again thing away or spoil this book for anyone else as I would have been devastated had anyone done that to me. As a warning on that front do not whatever you do flick through this book ahead as you might [...]

      POSSIBLE SPOILERS!When I first saw the book I was very intrigued to read it, I fell in love with the bright colours on the cover. This book is very different to what I normally read as normally I do prefer destopian. When I read this book I thought it was good but then I was very surprised to find out that all along the book was about a boy who discovers that he is actually gay. I did not like this book as much, I have nothing agaist the auther but it just wasnt the book for me. I also thought t [...]

      No šokk oli see igatahes, kui järsku ühel leheküljel peategelase sugu 'muutus'. Ja pisut võttis aega, et ümber harjuda sellega, et mitte tüdruk ei jutusta seda lugu, vaid hoopiski poiss. Samas ei oleks ma kirjaniku suhtes selles osas vaenulik - see on ikka päris kavalalt välja mõeldud nipiga kirjutatud. Ma usun, et ikka 99% inimestest üllatusid ja see oligi ju eesmärk. Pealegi ei ole ma mitte üheski raamatus seda veel kohanud, et nii drastiliselt kellegi sugu lugeja jaoks järsku mu [...]

      Such a gripping book! I read it in one day because it was really hard to put down. I loved the characters, especially Jody and her family. There were some very funny moments and some very deep ideas, which any child would find valuable.The way this book was written is 'awesome' - its not just some boring layout. It has pictures and writing of different sizes to reflect how it was spoken. I just wish that the book was longer and I would definately recommend it to anyone!

    8. glitterkawaiiprincess on said:

      So I don't know if I'm just a bit clueless, but here I was thinking that (view spoiler)[ Jody was a girl(hide spoiler)] for the most part of this book. (view spoiler)[ Cos I thought Jody was a girl's name, and then that thing about Jody's mother going to name him Dolly, well, I thought he was a girl. Apparently not, I don't know if it was the author's intention to make the book interesting but it just confused the heck out of me until I realised, oh, Jody's a boy. I mean, these days you can have [...]

      Really sweet with a nice, if guessable, twist. Loved the local references and characterisation, although some of the references seemed a bit dated to me (that doesn't detract from the book in any way though).

      THE most unexpected twist ever, but other than that, very uneventful

      Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.Before I start this review, I must tell you that there is a HUGE twist in this book that I will spoil. There is no way I can review this book in the way I want without spoiling it. I have permission from Macmillan Children's Books to do so as the book has been released for over a year. Do not read any further if you don't wish this book to be spoilt for you.I've had this book sitting on my TBR pile for a while, but never got round to reading it. The pre [...]

    12. Amy on said:

      Absolutely Incredible.I have to say there was at least one twist and at first I thought that in this book the word ‘gay’ was just being thrown about. Lots of words were just thrown about- peng, dibbling (which I haven’t heard as much as I have read it here) etc. A lot of very british phrases and words but also a lot that I would say are more Americanized but do add to the realism of the story. Some were thrown about more clearly than others.This is a book that probably will differ in its m [...]

    13. Smithjamest on said:

      What's up with Jody Barton? by Hayley Long was a real eye-opener. It really makes you think and is written in a hilarious upbeat manner though the content it approaches is really quite serious. I found the way the novel was written a little young for me, I don't really appreciate words being enlarged and put in bold to emphasis them. I get why it's done but for me it gets kinda distracting. I'm putting the description of it on here because it's very hard to talk about this book without giving aw [...]

      Review: Jody and Jolene are twins who are quite different, as people are. They're also a bit similar. Looking the same. Falling in love with the same person. Except Jody is a bit different. In a way Jolene doesn't know. What's Up With Jody Barton is the story of what happens when the secret gets out.I feel really bad about writing this review. The big reveal thing is about halfway through the novel, which often happens. But in What's Up, the big reveal is something so big that I feel really bad [...]

    15. Lucy on said:

      This is a hard review to write. This book has a really important and surprising twist that I cannot tell you about as it would ruin the novel, absolutely ruin it. This therefore means that there is a lot I cannot talk about in this review, but I’m going to do my best to give you a spoiler-free review for this awesome book, which means this is probably shorter than a lot of my reviews, but trust me you don’t want spoilers!I heard about What’s Up With Jody Barton? on twitter, where the lovel [...]

      This review was first posted on Music, Books and Tea.There’s only one way to suitably start this review, and it’s by saying that What’s Up With Jody Barton is a fabulous book. If ever someone needed a good starting point with UKYA, then this book would definitely be one of my picks for them. This book contained so many positive aspects, and it was just fiction done right.There are so many themes within Jody Barton, and I honestly feel that this is a book that should be taught in schools ac [...]

    17. Lyndsey O'Halloran on said:

      This book tells the story of Jody Barton, maths lover, River Phoenix and Jim Morrison enthusiast and twin to Jolene. All of these different things help to give Jody a very distinct voice and was a great character to read about. Jody was not exactly that character that I thought that I would end up reading about either though. Twists and secrets are added in to make the reader second guess what they’re reading which for me was a good thing. I love to be surprised and this book definitely did th [...]

      I read the book Whats Up With Jody Barton?, by Hayley Long. This story is about twins called Jolene and Jody. They live in north-west London above a café called Chunky's Diner, which is run by their parents.Jolene and Jody are twins but they're nothing alike. Jolene is more popular compared to Jody. Jody likes old bands and singers an is very good at maths. Jolene is more into make-up and clothes. When a boy walks into the dinner after a bus journey he sits down and Jolene and Jody stare at him [...]

      This book is really really sneaky! I envisioned one kind of story and was happily working my way through the book, when Wham! Bam! I discover I am reading a completely different story! The wool fell from my eyes and I couldn't believe I did not see the events coming. Now because I don't want to spoil it for you, I am going to have to be really careful how I write this review. The issues I long to discuss with you, I can't! As it would ruin the story completely. All I can say is this book deals w [...]

      [Review first posted at Quite Spectacular]I LOVED this book so much! It was like a good cup of tea. I can't give too much away because there's a BIG twist halfway through. The twins were great characters. In fact, I loved the whole Barton family. I could picture them and hear their voices so vividly. It was nice to read about a working class family from London who loved each other dearly and weren't involved in anything dodgy. The dialogue littered with colloquialisms were spot on. I laughed out [...]

      PLEASE DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK ITSELF, PLEASE, PLEASE.OK. So, have you read this book? If you have, then keep reading. If you haven't, I strongly suggest you don't read the review an instead scroll right back to the top.Okay, I am going to tell you the truth. The truth is I absolutely could NOT stop reading the book. NOT. AT. ALL. I LOVED IT! i loved the way Hayley L. did not reveal that Jody was a boy until, the happening I totally did NOT get it [...]

    22. CherryCarrot on said:

      WUWJB is clever and fun, with a killer twist. Don't expect it to be an in-depth, serious exploration of coming out and LGBT issues, because that's not the kind of book it is, though of course it features these things sympathetically - it's more about self-realisation and family issues and first love. I felt the story told here makes better use of Hayley Long's style than the Lottie Biggs books (which while enjoyable have little plot, and are more sketchy narratives than stories for me). All in a [...]

      When i first saw this book it wasn't one i would usually pick up and read, however i have enjoyed reading this book and was surprised with the layout. I haven't read one of Hayley Longs books before so i didn't know what type of writer she is, and i must say i like how she creates her stories.She uses illustrations to go along with the text in the book and i really like how she has done this because it is effective in making it more interesting, eye catching and keeps the reader wanting to be in [...]

    24. Arianne on said:

      Cleverly written and totally engaging, this is probably one of the most underrated UKYA books I've read in recent years - which is a shame, as it's a great read with a brilliant story. Perfect for fans of Wonder and The Art of Being Normal, this is a quick, easy read that delights as much as it surprises. It's hugely accessible with a clear, straightforward plot and a down-to-earth feel. It's the kind of book that would feel just as at home on a school or classroom library shelf as it would in a [...]

    25. Nora on said:

      Charming and delightful! This novel takes you from frivolity to heart-wrenching melancholy and then to regular happiness. Jody and Jody's twin sister Jolene fall for the same guy at the same time. Hijinks ensue, and then gritty realism ensues. If you want to read a book where caring adults intervene to stop bullying, keep searching. I liked the illustrations, the math jokes, and the fun British phrases like "jog right off." The one thing I did not like about this book was the design of the text [...]

    26. Michelle Moore on said:

      As others have said, there's a lot which can't be reviewed here, as there is a lot which shouldn't be given away. I can say, though, that the story is told from the point of view of Jody, and 15 year old teenager. Jody and Jolene are twins, and they have a rather typical relationship, often bickering, but close at the same time. The trouble starts when they both fall for the same boy, with wide ranging consequences.The style is perfectly pitched at teens, with a simple chatty style, with just th [...]
