    This book was received as an ARC from PENGUIN GROUP Penguin Young Readers Group - Razorbill in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

    This book for me was not what I was expecting at all. Usually when you hear the words small crimes, you feel like it would be a story of overcoming obstacles and regaining your life back but for Tiffany Templeton, whenever she made an opportunity for growth, someone stopped her or got in her way.

    So many readers have said that they bought or wanted to read a book solely based on the cover and I always was convinced they were 'crazy' until now, until I saw this book.

    I had hoped for a little more with this book, however, I was pleased. Tiffany spies on people and so having spied she is a keeper of secrets. At the start of the story, Tiffany is being sent home from detention school. Not because she is done, but the detention center was shut down. Her mother has a caustic tongue. Her brother is a waste of space and her father is deceased. I really enjoyed the growth of Tiffany. I loved Kelli, the probation officer. I thought several characters were just wacky ...more

    I received an ARC of this novel from NetGalley. I was drawn to it partly because of the cover; those neon letters are fantastic! Also, I was drawn to the reference to The Serpent King in the teaser—I loved that story!

    The plot is threaded together with current action and reflective letters from Tiffany to fill in backstory, and I think the formatting layout of a final copy will clarify some of the confusion I had here and there about whether this was happening now or in the past. The character

    Tiffany Templeton has the reputation of being tough, so tough she had to be sent to a facility for juvenile delinquents. When the center is closed, Tiffany is sent home early, on probation. Her dad is dead, her mother is distant, and no one in the tiny town where she lives trusts her Not because of her small crimes but her bigger crime of wanting more than the her surroundings allow her. A cynical coming of age story for jaded teens who like their fiction dark and realistic.

    I found Tiffany Templeton intriguing and a very real kind of character--the misunderstood delinquent The supporting characters are mostly well defined. The plot about the play enacted by ladies from the local nursing home irritated me almost to the point of minot finishing the book. I think, overall, there is an audience for this novel.
