I realized why this book irritated me so much... At 30 years old I’m too old for all of these new words or phrases that I have to Google in order to understand. 😭 But in all seriousness this was a good book. I LOVE how diverse the characters are. That is one of the best things about this book. The sass of the characters was another great thing. When you strip down all of the extra words and such this is a really good story. I’ve never read anything like it and that’s a fantastic thing. I have no ...more

Sorry Not Sorry is a heartbreaking book. I liked gave this book four stars because it is a very entertaining book with some twists and turns, but I didn't give it the last star because a lot of the plot is explained on the back cover, and I would like a little bit more suspense and unknown.

I got this book because my library was giving away ARCs and this was one of them I chose.
There are some books that just aren't as good when I read them more than once. And then there are some that I can read again and again.
I saw this book on some list on this site back in November and had been wanting to read it since then. I didn't think I could wait until February. And luckily I didn't have to.
My library's "new YA" shelf had run out of good options already. And this was perfect.

Thanks to the @KidLitExchange network for the review copy of this book--all opinions are my own.

About Me:

I’m a self-proclaimed movie and music snob with a playlist for every occasion in life. I’m freakishly tall with large feet, and I have a slight obsession with the gym, cool 80’s references, and orange soda. My weapon of choice: sarcasm.

Teen fiction always captured my interest and I appreciate the newness of that time, and wel
