I had to think on this one for a few days...
3.5 stars from me...

It was a great read - confession - my first YA read and I struggled a little with the youth.....

3.5 stars because I really struggled more with the concept of BULLIES. As an older person, I remember that this has been going on for years and years, but with today's RIGHT NOW WORLD where anything is available for a youtube, twitter or Facebook download it makes that more prominent that it has been in the past. So I had very mixed emotions about that part of the story. I kept trying to wonder what someone who had been on the receiving end of those taunts would feel reading this book. THAT was first and foremost in my head as I read - I couldn't push it aside...

It was well written and had all the elements of a good story, I'm glad the book had a "HEA for now" ending, but... It felt like it drew you more to the BULLY part of the story...
"This is how bullies are made..."
