's review
May 09, 14

I would normally stay far away from books that sound like typical high school drama stories (they are often egregiously exaggerated and predictable), but the reviews for this book hinted at a shocking revelation that changes the complete course of the novel. How could I resist after seeing that?

I must admit that I skimmed through the first half of the book, carefully reading just the first five or so chapters before the four different POV's got on my nerves and I felt bored. Once I got to the twist, however, my interest was piqued. I appreciated how this book addressed an issue that is not normally found in fiction novels, and I'm surprised that Alissa Grosso managed to handle this subject so well. This twist added a great deal of depth to the story and transformed it from a Mean Girls special to a haunting, desperate, and hopeful tale about identity.

Readers interested in psychology would enjoy this book!
