A- what diana and seth would never do is to leave their patients in theemergency room like giving up their work, they never would leave the motorcycle accidented boy, the gunshot wound victim, and muchless the baby. Nov 15, Ceri rated it did not like it Shelves: So this was a book I read a million times in middle school and is hilarious to return to now when I'm working as a chaplain at a Level 1 trauma hospital, often on call for the ER.

Cooney got a lot right; the ebb and flow, the weird little world unto itself that the ER can be, the interplay of personalities and hierarchies within the ER--all of that is pretty close to what I'm experiencing, which made it a little jarring when I would leave work to read about work.

Cooney also nails the brevity of So this was a book I read a million times in middle school and is hilarious to return to now when I'm working as a chaplain at a Level 1 trauma hospital, often on call for the ER. Cooney also nails the brevity of ER patients; just like most of the characters here, you don't get to know them and you don't get to see the end of the story. Life and patients move on. The structure is great, the setting is solid, but the characters, unfortunately, are ridiculous.

Cooney suffers from her own melodrama, to an extent, and I hated both of the main characters are flat fools slotting neatly into gender expectations with little fuss.

I do appreciate the ways Cooney gave us both sides of a scene and the interplay between Seth and Diana, but especially at the end I was absolutely on the side of the nurses who found them insufferable. The subplots were really quite good, but Seth and Diana kind of spoil the whole thing.

There were also a number of ethnic and socioeconomic stereotypes that just felt too easy for this, although many of them are often true. Good for a foray into ER culture though dated , but not something I'm going to keep around. Feb 01, Kerry rated it liked it Shelves: I bought this at a public library book sale, looked interesting.

It was a short tale, with a college girl getting shot in the first chapter. But to me, the really interesting part is that inside the covers the words "Greenbrier junior high" were stamped. This was a Jr high book? It wasn't graphic, but I'm not sure I would like my 11 or 12 year old reading it. I really just thought that was odd. Couldn't really get into this book, spelling awful in places. May 31, Ashley rated it it was amazing.

Mar 15, Christina rated it liked it. I loved everything going on in the story but it did leave me feeling like I needed to know more about what happened to the other patients.

Sep 26, Jen Gomm rated it did not like it. Maybe this is a good book for a teen reader, but definitely NOT for an adult. Jul 31, Paige rated it it was ok. This book was sort of confusing. There were just way too many storylines to follow, and it took the last few pages for them to all coincide. Was not a fan of this book. Jan 05, Lauren Dahl rated it really liked it.

I thought that this book was really good. This book was really interesting and made it really easy for me to connect to this book.

The reason that it was so easy for me to connect is because I really want to work in the medical field when I get older. So, for this book there was a few things that I didnt like about it, for example, when it would switch the charters from one chapter to another got a little confusing for me.

But, in the end this book was really interesting and made me want to read I thought that this book was really good. But, in the end this book was really interesting and made me want to read more. Feb 28, Thalia is currently reading it. Cooney which is a work of non-fiction. My observations about a character name Diana is that she is a nice person and everyone in her job takes over her kindness.

She works in the emergency room. Ever time a patient comes to get auxiliary they always leave her the drunk ones to her and everyone makes fun of her. While reading this book i learn three things. They always leave the drunk patients to Diana. Secondly,Seth hated having to learn new things.

He liked knowing everything already. Sometimes Seth is a jerk in front of people and strangers and his friends. Everyone in the job has nick names that they like to be call but Diana just want them to call her by her name , but everyone call's her Volunteer. Would Diana do something that everyone would thank her for and they start calling her by her name?. Diana office is a small cubicle therefor other people has bigger rooms. This book makes me think that do people actually gets treaded like that in real life?

This book makes me realize that people everywhere in general there's people that are sweat and other people are cold hearted and take advantage of them. Treat others how you want to be treaded, Never judge people on how they look or base on what you looking. Login or Register. download Hardcover: E-mail this page Embed book widget. What is an eBook?
