really liked it
bookshelves: audiobook, youngadult

What actually happened is revealed in a trickling fashion that is not frustrating. While you are also learning WHY Melinda is being ostracized by most of the members of her freshmen high school class you are also being shown what a clever girl Melinda is and how wrong it is that she is failing most of her classes. She is trying to find out what she likes, where she fits in, and what she is willing to do to have friends. Ms. Anderson's writing style is very readable and the characters are drawn quite well for such a short read.
