So they catfish Annalise by creating the perfect virtual guy, with Noelle playing along reluctantly only because her lifelong crush, Cooper, is in love with Annalise. As Annalise falls for it, even scoring tickets to the concert of the year ...more
I went into this book without expectations, to be honest, because this genre is a hit or miss for me. And this time it was a hit!
This book kept me busy for few hours and I had so much fun reading it, trying to guess what was going to happen, and I failed, and I ended caring so much for the characters, even though I tried not to.
But I can't speak about the plot without giving you spoilers, so I'll shut up. But I can tell you that if you want a fun and easy read this ...more
Identity Crisis follows the story of a girl named Annalise whose high school career goes downhill when a rumor spreads about what happened between her and the boyfriend of the school's queen bee Eva at the Freshman Fling. It's a year later, but no one's forgotten about it, especially Eva and her minions, Tori and Noelle. When Noelle's crush Cooper starts flirting with Annalise (who is totally not interested!), Eva forms a plan to catfish Annalise to get revenge for the Freshman Fling ...more
I really enjoyed Identity Crisis because I felt like it was a somewhat lighter take (though not too light) on what can be a very serious issue – and sometimes we need that. There are lots of “issue” books out there, and they’re all important, but they might not always feel accessible, especially to a younger YA crowd. This one does.
The synopsis describes the book pretty accurately, so I’m just going to jump straight in ...more

Melissa Schorr tells a modern story of technology, romance, and the problems that come with it.
Technology, specifically the Internet, is a risk. Everytime I post, tweet, email, etc., that data will forever be there. I can't erase it, which is why it's important to be careful of what you put online. I'm not trying to lecture you all about Internet saf...more
Identity Crisis cover a very important topic in this era of technology, the fact that a computer screen is easy to hide behind and that not everyone is who they say they are. This story alternates back and forth between the perspective of Annalise, a sophomore that has been wrongly accused of hooking up with Eva's (the most popular girl in school) boyfriend at the freshman fling, and Noelle, who is smart, shy and close friends with ...more
Noelle was my favorite character by far, despite being the "bad" one in the book because I loved seeing her character develop, as she tried to battle between doing what she assumed was right, and doing what rea ...more

The internet is a scary place for many people. We hear a lot of things about a man selling something on Craigslist and then butchering people when they approach him for a sweet buy. We hear about mysterious scammers in Nigeria taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting individuals. But what we haven't heard is the emotional toll on these victims. And that is where Identity Crisis comes in.
Catfishing is a very serious crime. (Plea ...more
That's as far as I got into Identity Crisis before I couldn't read anymore.
I'm sure if were reading this as a 14 year old, I would have loved it.
But the juvenile language ("puh-leeze", I rolled my eyes at this), the dissing of Kanye (even the god awful chick in Fangirl loved Kanye) and country (but have you SEEN Luke Bryan), was all too dramatic for me.
From what a read though, it seems like a mix between Mean Girls and Catfish and a One Direction concert. ...more
I read the book Identity Crisis by Melissa Schorr. Overall, I did not like this book very much because it was kind of basic and generic.
Annalise is a huge fangirl of a band called the Brass Knuckles. Her rumoured hook up with an it-girl boyfriend has Eva, the it girl, and her friends Noelle and Tori, all over Annalise, trying to make her life a living nightmare. Eva, Noelle, and Tori create a fake online account to trick Annalise. They use the name a ...more

I received this book for free from Merit Press via The Fantastic Flying Book Club in exchange for an honest review.
This book tells a story of cyber bullying from two different views- the attacker and the victim. One of the good things about this book is all of the gray area. This is definitely the book for someone looking for something original that stands on its own.
What I liked

I don't know what enchantment Identity Crisis has but I'm totally charmed by this book. Okay wait, I think I do know. The excellent blend of the characters and the plot made this book the perfect read especially for young readers. I'm not overstating things but I really believe that EVERYONE needs to read this book. It's relevant, honest and a lot of different things you'd be glad to find in 1 book.
We get the gist of the story just by reading the synop ...more
Identity Crisis follows two characters: Annalise and Noelle. Annalise has gone through a pretty scandalous past, though only she knows what actually went down. Rumors can ruin lives. Noelle is best friends with the girl whose boyfriend was also involved in the scandal. She also has a huge crush on Cooper, the guy who has been eying Annalise quite a lot lately. That's why her best friend, Ev
Have you ever been catfished? In the book I read, a girl got catfished by a bully. It is called Identity Crisis, and it was written by Melissa Schorr. It is a realistic fiction novel that will be published by Merit Press on January 18, 2016. There are 240 pages in my copies of this book. It was a just right read that was really interesting

'Identity Crisis' delves into so many issues, from friends and crushes to in-fighting, bullying, and the ever popular problem of figuring out how to fit in when you sorely stick out. This is due in no small part to the spread of rumors that main character Annalise's enemies have inflicted o ...more
Noelle is a member of a trio of mean girls. She’s not necessarily a mean girl herself, but she goes a long with them whenever they do mean things.
Last year Annalise had made the mistake of trying to comfort the boyfriend to Eva the head mean girl after Eva had broken up with him. It seemed that she didn’t want to be humiliated in front of the whole student bo ...more
(This review may contain spoilers).
When I read the blurb of this book, I found myself quite intrigued by the plot… even though it’s not something I would necessarily choose to read normally.
Although I’m not very keen on dual first person perspectives, I did find this book to be fairly easy to read, despite getting confused over whose head I was in a couple of times. Both Annalise and Noelle were characters I found likable and easy to ...more
