I enjoyed reading Leslie's Journal and I hope it serves as a lesson to young girls who are too naive to recognize when they have gotten into a poisonous relationship. My only qualm with the book is its credibility - why would Leslie risk putting her entire life, in such detail, into a school journal that had the possibility of being read by a teacher? There are a few minor details concerning her relationship with Jason that I found to be a bit off as well. Overall, though, a good read.

I'll admit I didn't have the highest hopes for this story about Leslie, a daughter of divorced parents, who starts to write her most personal thoughts in a journal assigned to her by her English teacher. It seems like Leslie's only outlet, and since her teacher promised never to read it, what's the harm in putting down personal stuff, like the fact she likes Jason? Jason isn't exactly your average boyfriend however. His first "date" with Leslie involves too much alcohol and it isn't until later that Leslie realizes she's been raped. Leslie continues to see Jason after this, seeing something in the much older and richer guy. His behavior just starts to escalate, and then a new English teacher turns over Leslie's journal to the principal. Leslie's scared for her life and so are the readers in this disturbing story of teenage relationship violence.

I would like to start off by saying that i really enjoyed this book! As i read it, it seemed like i had grown with the character as she went through her trying times with the boy Jason! I feel that most girls between the ages of 13 and 17 can sort of relate to the problems that Leslie went through in some manner. Maybe not as extreme as Leslies but the peer pressure really is a issue in high school! The only thing i was dissapointed about in this book was the ending! In the end you start to think, hasn't she gone through enough... i guess the author thought different! But overall this is a really good book and i would recommend it to any girl between the ages of 13-17!!!!

Before I read this book I wasn't much of a reader. When I discovered Amazon.com I looked at the books for teens and this book seemed very interesting. I ordered the book and when I got is read it in one sitting.
This book was so amazing it had everything I needed it had suspence, drama, action, and conflict. I would reccomend this book to any Young Adult reader.
Leslie's Jornal is about an angst ridden teen who's parents were going through divorce. She kind of a bad A$$ and wanted to impress these girls that she hated. so she started going with Jason(the new kid)and the first night she had to much to drink and passed out the next thing she finds out is that he had sex with her passed out body. He starts to get abusive and controlling giving her pills and making her have sex. When she brakes up with him he starts to stalk her and tells her he has pictures of her passed out naked at his house. She went into his house and found her picture along with other girls pictures....I don't want to give away anymore....hope i didn't give away too much . Read it!

This is definitly one of my favorite books! I couldn't put it down. The characters are very realistic and relatable! It's great for the middle school and high school age. Leslie teaches us to stand up for ourselves and handle a hard situation with help from her best friend, Katie. A lot of girls struggle with date rape and abuse, and this book really gives the reality of it with a believable set of characters you'll get to love and respect. There should be a sequal!

Sometimes it is hard to stand up for yourself or your beleifs. It takes much courage to face something very tragic. Learning to listen to your friends is an important factor in life. Sometimes it takes a big event to realized what friendship really is. Leslie's journal is a suspenseful, fast-paced story about love, friendship, and what it means to stand up for yourself.
Leslie is a normal teenager who hates school and wants to be popular. Everyday in school she writes in her journal and tells about her life. Her parents are divorced and she has a hard time getting along with them. She feels like popularity is more important than friends and family. Leslie meets a new popular guy named Jason at school one day. She thinks he is perfect even though her friends tell her different. The first night alone with Jason, Leslie and him go too far. Because of drinking too much that night, Leslie wakes up not knowing what happened to her. She asked Jason and he tells her that she was the one that wanted to go all the way. She feels weird about it but believes he is telling the truth. As time goes on, Leslie writes in her journal about how Jason starts abusing her. She lies to her friends and family about the bruises. She starts realizing she needs to get out but Jason wont let her go.
As Leslie's life spins out of control, she learns how to stand up for herself. Her only hope is her best friend and family. Through it all, Leslie realizes what is really important in life.
This book is great for teenagers everywhere. It is a great example about how to make the right decisions. You will not be able to put it down after you start reading it.
