    I really enjoyed reading 'Fill Out This Application And Wait Over There'. There were so many aspects of this book that I liked, hence my rating of 5 stars. - It was refreshing to read a YA fiction book written by an Australian author - I actually understood the references!!! (like Jim's Mowing, a Bryce Courtney novel, Kmart) - I found it easy to relate to the main character, Hailee Moxie, and I believe other 15+ teens probably would too. - Hailee's diary was written in a very realistic, light, fun I really enjoyed reading 'Fill Out This Application And Wait Over There'.

It was way more interesting hearing about all the different people Hailee met in her various jobs, like Jules, Tahlia, Micheal, Paisley and Marlene. - Hailee didn't spend all her time whining about her breakup!!!! - All Hailee's bad experiences were written in a humorous way (it wasn't just her complaining all the time) - All the characters in 'Fill Out This Application And Wait Over There' were well thought out, unique and different, they all had their own quirky personalities, like Melissa the grumpy supervisor and Micheal the environmental enthusiast. There was no mistaking one character for another! - It was amusing reading about the customers at all Hailee's jobs, and so true in real life. This was a hilarious, light story and great for cheering you up!

    I'd say I'd give it a 2.5, leaning more towards the two, for a very good reason. This book is about 200 pages too long! You find yourself reading similar situations over and over, and wondering why you should care. There are snippets of really good writing, and some laugh out loud moments, but on the whole it is a bit of a drag. Hailee reads like a 12 year old at most points, and sounds like an extremely immature 17 year old.

As I said, there are some small gems of writing in this book, but I don't think it's worth dragging yourself through the rest to read them. But drag I did, and I finished after thinking I'd put it down half way through, so I guess that's something.

    Well that was a bit depressing, not looking forward to finding a job now... I've figured out that the reason I didn't like this book that much is simply because despite being the same age and even living in the same city (which, for Adelaide, is rare in a book) as the main character, I could not relate to her *AT ALL*. (Probably not a flaw of the book or characterisation or anything, just a personal reason why I didn't like it much.)

Also the other thing is that Hailee got an interview at literally every place she applied for. *okay... that sounds fake but okay* I like the fact that the entire book is basically a recounting of things that happen in various casual jobs with customers and such, but it still manages to make that entertaining. OH AND ALSO I love all the Aussie references like Jim's Mowing, and the girl who paints her nails in Crows colours. (yes go Crows!!)

    Ruth Starke is from Adelaide! I had to reference her a lot in all my children's lit essays at uni and kept spelling her name 'Strake' for some reason, apparently that word brings out latent dyslexic tendencies in me. Anyway I liked this, it was funny and realistic. I do like 'slice of life' type books that deal with everyday, ordinary little dramas instead of big unusual dramas. They're only boring if they're badly written, and this wasn't. Hailee was maybe a bit immature and clueless for an 18 y Ruth Starke is from Adelaide!

    This fictional diary of a girl's gap year and the minimum-wage jobs she does to earn money for travelling to Thaliand is quite funny, although it's not one that's going to stick into my mind. If you like journal-entry-style diaries, complete with irony, wicked humour, and daily life, then this one's for you.

    As I am currently in the process of applying for a few different jobs, I thought this novel would provide some humor and insight to the subject and while there is a little bit of laughter to be had with our protag testing the waters with a range of positions from Check Out Chick to Junior Journalist, it ultimately felt like something was missing.

    The writer is from Adelaide so I can easily imagine what she writes. I guess that is the main attraction for me, but it is not a bad book so even if she is from the Antarctic I will still read it. I have always wondered if the cashiers are ever sick of saying "Hi, how are you?" to every single customers that go to the counters. Turns out, they do.
