Review by Courtney
Alissa and Katherine are best friends. Dealing with the drama of high school, being a teen girl and just growing up in general they are a constant in each other’s lives. While Alissa begins a relationship with Matt, Katherine is on her own in the craziness that is teenage girl-dom. However, no matter the directions that their lives take, they are always there for one another as support and best friends.
Beginning this book, I thought that main theme would be bullying. While it was a large focus, there were so many other themes within this story that just hit the nail on the head. Being a teenager is hard, being a teenage girl can be hell! It was easy for me to relate to both characters, to understand them and in a way to be there with them emotionally with what they were dealing with. Alissa and Kat go through some serious issues between their Junior and Senior years in high school. I admire their friendship, that no matter what is going on in their lives they always turn to one another instead of deserting each other. There were a few unresolved issues at the end of the book, but I am extremely anxious to see how the rest of the story unfolds and what lies ahead for Alissa and Katherine. 5 out of 5 books
