Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious Yet Relatable Chris Colfer's Struck By Lightning is a memorable story turned into a movie. The thing that makes this book so memorable is the fact that it accurately portrays the life of a high school student as it actually is in real life; the high school "food chain", the harshness of being lonely and frowned down upon, and the stress of applying for post secondary education. Colfer added plenty of humour and some wise messages. Though the story seemed a little rushed, the whole book (especially the end) was absolutely amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I had low expectations because an actor turned author may not turn out so well. However, this was a great book and the movie was just as great.
