  • This book s packaging is a great injustice to the story inside From the cover and jacket description, it seemed like silly teen chick lit However, it is truly a wonderfully told coming of age story Many times I forgot it was fiction and thought I was reading an actual memoir I was so drawn into the story of Nina I am actually surprised by it s YA classification Baker and Taylor recommends it for 7 9 grades , as I believe its story would appeal much to grown women.


  • Every Crooked Pot, is an amazing book made by Renee Rosen Renee Rosen explained the life of a teenage girl, Nina Goldman, and the birthmark that stops her friendships, or as she thinks Renee Rosen made me want to read of her books, by making her story feel real I recommend this book for 11 because of its matureness.


  • Sounds like a good one I ve read the first chapter Can t wait to read the rest.Update I read this book in one sitting disappeared for hours Couldn t put it down It s a beautiful and heartbreakingly real story about a girl with a facial birthmark How she and her family deal with it, how it affects her personally as she comes of age and the effects of her deformity on the family dynamic is fascinating Characters are well developed I feel like this family could be my next door neighbors you know, t [...]


  • Adult review of YA fiction This entire book can be summed up from a single sentence within paraphrased view spoiler If Nina s father went into therapy, the whole family would benefit hide spoiler Nina is our likeable main character She ages from 7 to early 20s as she deals with normal kid teen family stuff but everything is compounded by a facial birthmark and a wacky father There are some good themes here, in spite of some issues I had with the book If you enjoy coming of age tales Judy Blume, [...]


  • Nina has a port wine stain on her face It s a bad one the skin is bumpy, the white of her eye looks red all the time from the excess blood vessels, and the whole area is swollen so much that the kids at school called her Big Eye Little Eye when they were young It doesn t cause her any physical pain, but she spends a lot of time obsessing about her birthmark and thinking that it makes her unloveable.Nina also has an incredibly manipulative and controlling father He s always the life of the party, [...]


  • This is an awesome book about a family that becomes close Nina, the daughter, has a hard time to find acceptance among her family She has a birthmark located on her body that makes her very shy Nina felt very unattractive to everyone because of birthmark that is located on her eye During her family vacation, Nina somewhat, finds a cure to make it not so noticeable For a reader who is self conscious, this book would be a good one to read It has a great storyline dealing with something you cannot [...]


  • At first,I wasn t looking forward to reading the book,because I chopped it up to being a boring book I was wrong I loved every minute of it, and although I don t have a birthmark holding me back I still felt like I could relate to Nina s wanting to fit in The characters are memorable and I d recommend it to everyone.

  • I was sucked into Nina Goldman s life the minute I started to read this little gem of a book from Ren e Rosen Nina was born with a strawberry birthmark that covers one of her eyes, and early on she learned that it brings both good and bad attention to her I agonized along with Nina as she struggled to fit in socially through middle school and high school, sure that her eye was the only thing keeping her from being popular Nina s story brought back memories from the mixed up social scene of my ow [...]


  • I must admit, I almost lost hope for this book halfway through But I m glad I braved my way until the end, for that s when it all became worth it.Nina Goldman was born with a hemangioma around her eye, the result of having way too many blood vessels around the affected area Since childhood, she has always been convinced that the only reason she isn t popular is because of her birthmark In an attempt to fit in, and finally be accepted despite her abnormality, Nina does anything and everything to [...]


  • The novel Every Crooked Pot by Renee Rosen is a fiction which I enjoy reading Even though the novel is a fiction, the story is very realistic that many girls can relate to I would recommend the book for girls but I m not sure about the boys Because the story includes how girls view about guys and how girls want to look pretty for guys and the novel has many girls talk involved The main character in the story, Nina is not confident about how she looks because she has a red, bumpy birthmark on one [...]


  • 3 1 2 starscommended by one of my friends This is a coming of age story about a teenage girl who has a hemangioma across one eye I really liked it, especially the second half, and thought the author had a good understanding of the psychological makeup of many teenagers, including the body image issues, insecurities, attention seeking behaviors, and complex desires surrounding family proud one minute, embarrased the next, and a desire to make everything okay for the needy members of the family I [...]


  • Ugh This book is ostensibly about Nina, her portwine stain and how she overcomes her disability, if you will While that s not something that appeals to me I was primarily reading it because of its Akron setting the author could have won me over by writing a lively, interesting story.Instead, you have a whiny main character who s never happy, even when things are going right, and a plotline that s really centered on the character s and author s relationship with her father Because what it is is r [...]


  • I loved this book I haven t enjoyed a book this much in awhile It s the coming of age story of Nina, a young girl with with a hemangioma on her eye it follows her from about ages 13 to 20 or so Of course, reading the book it become apparent that all the things she worries about are universal to most teens, hemangioma or no Whereas most teens might think why doesn t this boy like me she was thinking it s because of my eye She had a reason I found myself wondering many times whether this made it b [...]


  • Every Crooked Pot by Renee Rosen tells the story of a almost larger than life family, with the main focus on Nina She is the youngest child She was born with a birth mark on her right eye and lid The story starts in 1968 and continues I grew up during the time frame that the story is placed Talking about bell bottom jeans and tie dye shirts At times the story would seem to drag a bit but it was to help build the story line Nina felt that if she could be without the birth mark then her life would [...]


  • It was an okay book I wouldn t tell a friend to not read it if they picked it up, but I don t know that I d recommend it either I feel like it took a little while to get into the book and the characters don t grow or develop until the last chapter or two of the book You hate the protagonist s father, you feel bad for the protagonist and then just feel like she s whiny, you don t learn much about the rest of the characters such as the protagonist s mother, sister, brother or friends and just when [...]


  • This book is a timeline of Nina Goldman s life, from a youngster to and adult Ninna Goldman has a big pink strawberry birth mark on her eye Nina thinks that she will never find true love, and everybody will make fun of her When she goes back to school everybody makes fun of her except for a fat girl named Patty, who turns out to be Nina s best friend Nina is having trouble understanding life as she matures Nina s and Patty s friendship loosen and soon Nina is asking Patty why so many boys like p [...]


  • In my opinion, this book was not the best There was no drama or suspence The book was very predictable There should have been different things that went on instead of everything repeating.Every Crooked Pot is about a girl named Nina who was born with a swoolen eye It is all purple and black She is bullied and does not fit in with the people at school New neighbors move in and Patty, a girl her age becomes good friends with Nina As Nina gets older she sees different eye specialists for seven year [...]


  • Every Crooked Pot is a really good book Its about a girl that has a problem with her eye It doesn t hurt her but she doesn t like it at all She feels that her eye will always look bad until her mom starts taking her to a clinic to have her eye examined The doctors begin to tell her that after she has surgery her eye will be normal Her mother also takes her to get special make up to make her eye look smaller She meets a boy and she thinks he s the one but he ends up leaving her for another woman [...]


  • This book is about a girl named Nina who has a big birthmark on her and hates it She gets bullied and teased because of it and the only way her eye will look normal is if she gets surgery She meets a guy and falls in love with him, but he doesn t like her back and leaves Nina thinks it is because of her eye She thinks that if it wasn t for her birthmark, she would fit in, be normal and find love I picked this book up because I was curious why the girl on the cover had her hair like that I finish [...]


  • This was a wonderful coming of age tale, detailing the very horrors one faces with an abnormality on the road to become normal Nina is born with a Strawberry birthmark which consumes one whole eye When she is younger it doesn t seem to matter but once she starts become a teenager she realizes it s what makes her different So she continues to endure treatment after treatment to try to minimize the affect her eye has on other people When it s practically unnoticeable any that s when she decides sh [...]


  • I thought this was a great story and I liked and rooted for Nina Her father was loyal and loving, and despite Nina s insecurities at school, she knew she was loved and appreciated at home It had some funny and some poignant parts, and I have to admit that I shed some happy tears at the end.Teens and young adults will identify with Nina s insecurities Everyone has had at least one physical characteristic they are insecure about and imagine that it is glaringly obvious and unattractive Nina is lik [...]


  • Girl growing up with an hemangioma, strawberry mark, on her eye thinks her life would be great if only she was beautiful Plus she has a father whose attention seeking behavior seems to border on bipolar disorder It reads like a memoir, very linear, which flattened it out some Very funny in spots Though marketed towards teens, to me it had of an adult feel, as though written by an adult looking back.


  • Catalogued by my library as a teen novel but in my mind, it s not Although the book recounts the trials of Nina s youth, it is follows her into her twenties and some of the subject matter is not suitable for younger teens Anyway, it was a believable account of a girl who feels her birthmark defines her in the eyes of all who see her She wants to be visibly perfect and has a hard time accepting that she need not be model perfection to be worthwhile.


  • This is one of the best novels I ve read in awhile Was easy reading and written in a very uncomplicated way A story of a young girl s journey into adulthood and the trials of carrying the stigma of having a birth mark on her eye It was very well written and you could almost feel yourself getting pulled right into her character, feeling her pain and her challenges One of those novels that you were sorry to see end and hoped there would be a sequel written to it.


  • Over the course of the long weekend, I have read all three of Renee Rosen s books, which speaks for their quality I read Every Crooked Pot last It is astonishingly good for a first novel and an excellent coming of age story I highly recommend it and am anxiously awaiting Renee Rosen s next book.


  • I personally would consider this closer to an adult novel It s too grown up for YAd yet it s an adult novel that would appeal to 20 somethings like me who prefer YA style I liked that it was set in an earlier decade, when there were less advanced medical options for dealing with her condition, and found it to be a gripping story.


  • A wonderful coming of age story, told in an authentic, accessible voice that blends both the emotions and thoughts of the girl, with the changed perspective of the adult she becomes Told with an authentic voice reflecting the times of the late 1960s into the middle of the 1980s Well paced, with a great blend of reflection, action and dialogue.


  • really enjoyed Every Crooked Pot I was captivated from the very beginning by the Goldman family laughed cried throughout The most fun was having the book set in our hometown and the way Ren e brought landmarks, stores and places to life many of these places long since closed That brought a flood of my own memories back highly recommend
