The main theme of this book is bullying and how it breaks the victim to the point where their whole self worth is degraded. Teenagers can be cruel and relentless to each other without feeling any empathy for the victim. Words and actions hurt, betrayal hurts, and not having anywhere to go leads to a feeling of powerlessness and desperation. I loved the climax of the book - it was a total twist and keep me up reading way beyond my bed time. This would be a relevant book to read as part of a unit of work on relationships and empathy as well as for any young person who breathes.

Obtained through NetGalley for an honest review.
