This book was something of a disappointment for me. In her debut novel, Karen Avivi has a promising concept—female protagonist sets a goal for herself and chases after it in spite of obstacles like parents and temptation of fame and gender-bias. Really, Shredded sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, things just didn't work out.
Shredded wasn’t a terrible read, and I didn’t dislike it. I found it boring and obvious, though, and lacking in anything special to make it stand out. I liked the concept, but Avivi’s overall execution didn’t exactly pass muster.
