I would highly recommend this book. Although it was tense at times I thought the author nailed the voice of Judy. I couldn't put this book down!!

Some of my favorite quotes:

"No one said anything mean, even after he jogged away with his shorts riding up so high he looked like he was naked. Maybe simply because it would have been too easy. And all I can say about that morning is - how did we three know instinctively where the lines are between being funny and being brutal? I mean, why is it that everywhere I look, other people seem to be crossing those boundaries constantly ? Jumping, falling, leaping over the line from banter into cruelty. Sometimes it's on purpose and other times it's by accident, but in any case, people savage each other. "

And

"It's better not to pander to teenagers, since we have super sharp pander radars. "

It's FULL of these types of insights. Loved it!
