Shallow.

Outsider.

Sedlacek College Preparatory High School's freak.

“Alone isn’t such a tragedy when you’re trapped in a past that holds no future.”

Shallow was an interesting read for me. I’m not typically one to jump for a YA novel but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I thoroughly enjoyed this book much more than I thought that I would (which is always a treat in itself).

Words can destroy just as much as they can heal.
Brinley, the school princess, does whatever she needs to do to fit in at high school. Roderick, the school loner, does whatever he needs to do to survive and graduate. Their worlds could not be farther apart until circumstances change everything and their lives

In Shallow, a mandatory school assignment forces the students to step out of their comfort zone, to work with classmates they'd never speak to otherwise. For a lot of students this is just another assignment, but for a handful of them, it's something that's going to change their lives forever.

Roderick is a loner. Brinley is the shallow, mean girl. Together they break the mold that they've c
