    Trent has a Miccosukee father and English mother Neither of them seem to be on his side, although he goes to live with his father, an ex convict A spiteful ex girlfriend proves to be a pain in the butt, and he s trying to get closer to Pippa, a girl he s known for years who now seems incredibly gorgeous and cool to hang out with.Yes, there are people in his way who aren t looking out for his best interest, and Trent is imperfect himself, messing up in school and in relationships He doesn t feel [...]

    Once again, I find myself wanting to protect a character, from himself, from the flawed people around him In the end it s about choosing to take responsibility Loved how in this book, there are no perfect people No good guys or bad, just complex and normal human beings.

    More Than Good Enough is a very interesting novel It was hard for me to get into the story while reading the first chapter, but by the end of the second chapter I really wanted to know where Chappell was going with Trent.While there is obviously a plot, More Than Good Enough was really a character driven story Trent is constantly having to examine himself and question not only who he is, but who he wants to be For years, he has been bombarded with the idea that he s worthless He s been physicall [...]

    I have a love hate relationship with this book Some parts were good, some parts so so, some parts bad It was all over the place and I really didn t like the main character or his decisions The book really made me mad most of the time and I honestly don t know if I can recommend this book to anyone.

    An interesting short read The main character flopped through the book but ended upright at the close.

    Actual Rating 3.5 Born to a British mother and Miccosukee father, seventeen year old Trent Osceola feels like he doesn t fit in anywhere he goes not Indian enough for the Rez, but he certainly doesn t pass for a white kid either After some trouble in school, Trent is sent to live with his father on the Rez, despite not having much contact with him since he was a child Feeling ostracized, and attempting to escape the pressure of his homelife and school, Trent begins down a similar path to that of [...]

    Not only has Trent Osceola just been kicked out of the special music school he attended, his parents are making him go live with his ex con father on the Miccosukee reservation As only half Miccosukee, Trent doesn t feel like he really belongs, plus he s still driving all the way out to go to public high school in his mother s jurisdiction His ex girlfriend Michelle is toying with him, he keeps getting in trouble for skipping classes, his father is still drinking all day and bothering him, and a [...]

    More Than Good Enough is the story of Trent Osceola, half Miccosukee and half white, a teenager who is living with his father for the first time since his childhood on the Miccosukee Reservation, a piece of his culture he really doesn t know much about Having recently failed out of his prestigious music high school, Trent is drifting through life without much direction There are aspects to this book that I like I think Trent s identity struggle, not knowing where he belongs and feeling disconnec [...]

    Hmmm I received this book for free from a giveaway and was looking forward to reading it especially as it wasn t to long My copy is singed and features notes and doodles by the author It appeared to be the perfect quick read book As indicated by the low star rating of 2 5 I didn t enjoy it, and I m not even sure why so I ll just run through some main points First Reason The CharacterI just couldn t relate to Trent one iota and most of the time I couldn t understand his actions at all, which I fo [...]

    I wanted to like this one I don t feel like there are too many books out there about Native American teens, and I thought this could be an interesting look at a kid caught between two worlds Unfortunately, it didn t keep my attention After I got about halfway through and realized I didn t really care about what happened and wasn t interested in the characters, I just skimmed through to see how the plots resolve, so I can t give it a fair review if I really only read to see if anything jumped out [...]

    2.5More Than Good Enough was a quick read, and had a couple noteworthy quotes here and there But it dealt with some heavy issues without actually dealing with them I didn t feel like any of the issues were explored as much as they should have been It might have been better if it was meant to be a fluff read, but I don t think it was.Full review to come.
