After reading a few reviews on Blogging for Books and Goodreads, the consensus on this book was mixed. I knew I had to check it out for myself.
The book is YA book that focuses on bullying. The girl accused of bullying has been adopted by her parents best friend and cousin after they die.
The book is told from the point of view of the caretaker and the young girl accused of bullying. The caretaker doesn’t seem to believe that her “daughter” could possibly have done all this, and you eventually start to believe this is correct while reading her point of view.
All-in-all, I wasn’t that impressed with the book. I liked how the author, Lauren Frankel, attacked the hot-topic of bullying, but the swapping between POVs sometimes got confusing, and it was really hard to like any character in the book.
The book also started going downhill toward the end, and unfortunately the author decided to end everything in a nice sitcom-y way.
