Críticas:


"[A] knockout...[a] bold, brash, up-yours coming-of-age story rubbed raw with gritty sexual awakening."--The San Diego Union-Tribune
"In her debut novel, Portes paints a poignant picture of a teenage girl fleeing her past and landing in Vegas, where she's forced to grow up fast."--OK MAGAZINE
"A bracing drama, a study in tenacity against the gnarled teeth of domestic storms." --The Los Angeles Times
"Portes is an edgy writer whose talent is apparent on every page. Her honest, raw portrayal of Luli is harrowing, yet Portes also punctuates many of her observations with a keen and jaded humor. Hick announces the arrival of an exciting young voice. Portes' snappy prose shines through despite the disturbing plight of young Luli..."--The Rocky Mountain News
"Portes' writing and Luli's courage make this book a standout and, at times, beautiful novel." --The Omaha World-Herald
"A terrific and addicting read. It just barrels along, fueled by the adrenaline and enthusiasm of its youthful narrator."--The Kansas City Star
"[A] smart and sassy tale."--The Oregonian
"Her approach is so subtle and non-preachy that Hick's cinematic equivalent would be more indie drama than after-school special...Through Luli's eyes, Portes expertly captures the loneliness of poverty and the harsh monotony of being a child with no one to take care of you...She's the antithesis of the modern American teenager; she has grit. Her story is especially interesting as it is based on the real-life experiences of Hick's author, Portes...Eccentric and wild, her characters are larger than life, but they never become unreal...Luli's endurance...can only inspire."-Popmatters.com
"Compelling."--Library Journal
"Wonderful, touching."--The Nougat Magazine
"There probably was a time in the U.S. when parents read books to their kids at night; a time when people really cared about their neighbors and acted appropriately. Luli is America gone wrong personified. Hick is the coming of age novel for our twisted times."--Jeffrey A. Tipton, author of Surviving the City
"[C]ompletely blew me away...It's the best novel I've read this year...do not not read this book. this is a spectacular debut."--Tony Dushane, Drinks with Tony radio show
"Luli's road trip makes Holden Caulfield's experiences in "The Catcher in the Rye" and Huck's in "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" seem almost quaint. It is truly a coming-of-age story for today... Portes tells a fast-paced story and has created a memorable character in Luli." --Lincoln Journal-Star
"Impressive...Luli is so well-drawn and her voice so original and authentic that the reader can't help but get caught up in her story...engrossing..." --Dallas Morning News

Descripción Unbridled Books, 2007. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This fall, the film festival circuit will be introduced to the indomitable Luli McMullen in Hick, the new film made from the acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, who also adapted the screenplay. The film--directed by Derick Martini--stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Blake Lively and Eddie Redmayne and features Rory Culkin, Anson Mount, Juliette Lewis and Alec Baldwin in supporting roles. Hick is the story of Luli (Moretz), a bright kid from a hick town who s had enough and strikes out on her own with some borrowed cash, a .45 and her wits. On the road, Luli is taken under the wing of a glamorous young grifter named Glenda (Lively), who has experienced worlds barely imaginable to Luli. As the two make their way across the American landscape, they encounter a captivating and dangerous young man named Eddie Kreezer (Redmayne), a disturbing criminal subculture, and some hard truths about what it means to be a young woman on the run, grasping at a future. Hick the movie is produced by Lighthouse Entertainment and Taylor Lane Productions, with Stone River Productions serving as executive producer. Though its first-person narrating voice is fast-paced, powerful and unquestionably authentic, Hick is a debut novel. Beyond this voice, what makes the book so extraordinary is that, although all of the worst things imaginable do befall this 13-year-old girl, she is never defeated by them. Luli always fights back; she always resurfaces. Set as a coming-of-age novel, Hick tracks the real perils that modern teenagers so often face. And it does so with bright wit, energy, and an indomitable spirit. This is a book that will grab the reader from the first page and not let go. And it is written by a woman who is becoming a cultural force in the hippest parts of Los Angeles. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAS9781932961324
