I feel pretty bad that I'm the first person to review this, but I really did not have fun with this book.

So, the only reason I didn't give it a one star is because it did have some parts when I was like hmm, maybe this book isn't so bad? Or maybe this book just isn't for me? Maybe middle school/early high school Julie would've liked this better? Hell, maybe middle school or high school Julie wrote something similar lol. I definitely flashed back to 8th grade NaNoWriMo during some parts. I feel

First of all I want to say that Nicole Williams is a very talented author. I have read almost all of her adult and new adult novels and really loved them. I have also read one of her other YA novels.

Girl Upside Down by Nicole Williams is the story of girl learning to adjust to her new life. After her mother’s death she is forced to live with her father who had abandoned them ten years earlier. At age fifteen perceptions are a bit muddled because they are based off of pure emotions rather than l

I adored this book so much. Quinn's story broke my heart. And Kel... SWOON! I loved him and wanted to hug him.
I loved the way it all unfolded. I didn't know exactly where Nicole was going to take us with Kel's story, but I loved the way it was woven into Quinn's. I loved that they both were broken for different reasons, but that it brought them together.
Of course I loved the bad boy! Nicole writes great bad boys!!!!!
The ending was great.

I loved this book. It made me feel happy after I finished it.
It's about a girl name Quinn who has to go live with her dad after her mother died, leaving the life she was happy in. She was 15 and her world was upside down. But she didn't spend time venting her frustration. Instead she started learning how to adjust how to manage her life. She was helpful and did not give up on people and let other people give up on themselves.
Its quite a short book but It was something.
And I loved it ❤

Girl Upside Down was a wonderful YA story. Quinn and Kel have kindred spirits from the start. I really enjoyed her journey to a new school, dealing with her grief and new situation. Kel was someone she could connect with, even though he tried to stay away. His situation was a mystery for awhile. I kept wondering what was going on with him. The truth was heartbreaking. I really felt for these characters and wanted the best for them.

Honestly, I am an avid Nicole Williams fan having followed her career since she wrote the Crash series. And although I am a sucker for a YA romance, unfortunately this book just didn’t do much for me in terms of capturing my thoughts or rousing any kind of emotions besides regretful discomfort.

“Find the good, and you’ll deflect the bad.”

For a quick and uncomplicated read, this book was all right. But it is definitely not Nicole Williams’ finest work. The prose and the storyline is easy to follo
