Saucy, shimmering, loud and larger than life - come get your sugar fix!. That is so true of the way people use "gay" nowadays, and with that paragraph, Julie Burchill (celebrated controversial author of Brighton - the British enfant terrible of journalism!), manages to convey something much more poignant and real and teenage than Katy Perry could ever.

Julie Burchill only adds to the problems facing older teenagers with Sugar Rush. Even as you read this, the squeaky-voiced one (according to her publicist, she is 'Britain's most famous and controversial journalist', though why that should be a selling point for 'older teenagers', the people for whom this book has apparently been written, I have no idea - they only read Heat, don't they?) will no doubt be busy. How many books have YOU written, then?' it will say or words to that effect.

Fifteen-year-old Kim is horrified when her dad tells her she's got to leave her posh private school and go to infamous Ravendene Comprehensive, `the source and inspiration of five thousand urban myths and horror stories.' How will she survive in this wild and hormonal adolescent jungle? But then Kim meets gorgeous Maria (better known as Sugar) Sweet, queen of the `Ravers', and falls instantly under her spell. Leaving her restrained, good-girl past far behind, Kim finds herself not only drawn into Sugar's exciting and daring life - but also asking herself a disturbing question: has she fallen deeply in love with her best friend?

This is a good book, not just for teens but for adults as well. I bought it after I watch the tv series hoping it would give me more background stories on each characters, and indeed it did. I was expecting a lite chick lit of course and what do you know, it actually have an unexpected depth and makes one thinks. I love this book so much that I bought the sequel "Sweet"

I saw practically all of the series on E4 and thought it was absolutely fantastic, if a bit weird. Olivia Hallinan is a fantastic actress. Then I learned it was based on a book, so I got it out the library. I was amazed at how un-like the tv show it was.

I was expecting a lot more to happen in it. The tv show is apparantly very loosely based on the book, and personally, I think that's a good thing, because the book was pretty crap.

Kim has to move to a new school, and when she arrives, bumps into Maria Sweet a.k.a. Sugar, the leader of the girls in the school. They immediately become staunch friends, and Kim finds herself falling in love with her. There are a few lesbian antics in it, but hardly anything compared to the series. You can decide whether that's good or bad, I'll leave that up to you. But as for a storyline, I couldn't really find one.

The book isn't all bad, there are some mildly amusing bits, but generally it disappoints.

This was a refreshing look at teen sexuality in that the angsting over being attracted to a girl was kept to a minimum, and the focus was instead on the particular girl - Sugar, aka Maria Sweet, the beautiful party girl who befriends the narrator, Kim, when she transfers to a new school. The style is realistically teenagerish and although drugs and sex play a part, graphic details are kept to a minimum. However, it gets tiresome after a bit - especially with the use of various nicknames - and the ending comes out of the blue and makes little sense. Worth reading in the context of the lesbian YA fiction genre but hardly spectacular enough to recommend to a general audience.

I've read this book many times. I strongly disagree with all these bad reviews. This book is one of my favorites.
I wasn't a huge fan of how it ended but altogether i loved this book.
Jugami
although it has 'claimed' to be one of those forward thinking books on lesbian teenagers, it is a terrible, terrible book. i study teen lit. specialising in books about emerging female queerness, and i think of this as an example of one of the worst. it is poorly written, clearly voiced by a frustrated adult, who often lapses out of a teenage voice to that of a bitter adult, full of purple prose and attempts to be edgy and just comes off as seeming to be trying too hard.
Uste
This book was really great and had the best humor! Definitely sad at parts, but never failed to please.
Gribandis
Read this, nothing special etc. Then I watched the series on E4/c4 in the UK. It is an amazing, well written and acted series which uses the book as an ideas factory instead of using it entirely. [...]
