A ton of people out there love this book. I’m not one of them, but you should give it a shot if you are a fan of NA romances.
What is it about?
(Blurb from Goodreads – yes, still in a bloody cast…)
“Girls like you aren’t exactly welcomed at a place like this, so keep your head down and look the other way.”
Those were the exact words of my social worker when she dropped me in my newest hellhole, a place for “troubled teens”.
I didn’t listen, and now I’m on their radar.
They expect me to play along in their games of hierarchy, to fall in line in the social order they’ve deemed me fit.
Too bad for them, I don’t follow rules.
Too bad for me, they’re determined to make sure I do.
Inconceivably attractive and treated like kings…these are the boys of Brayshaw High.
And I’m the girl who got in their way.
I’ve heard so much about this book from many corners – from recommendation threads to Facebook group posts. It appears to be well loved by many. Sadly, it seems it is not my type of book. There’s a lot to enjoy in it, but the writing style and the way it flowed put me off. I’m rating it a 3.5 because, minus the stilted flow, there is nothing wrong with it and the author obviously crafted a complex plot that is worth exploring.
Give it a shot – you may find its you next favorite novel!
First Person, Multiple POV
- Well edited.
- FMC is kick@ss.
- Characters are unique.
- Writing style was hard to connect to.
- Transitions are stilted or non-existent.
“Reality can’t be typed on letterhead and sealed with a stamp.” (41%)
Some will love it, some hate it – give it a shot, you never know how you’ll fall unless you try it.
