For fans of: Realistic Fiction, LOL, Contemporary

Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some CONFESSIONS to make... #1: I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?

#2: I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who "might" be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.

#3: High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry-get it?)

Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.

(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.) (Sorry. That was rude.)


*MY THOUGHTS*
     This will be a hard review for me because I'm kind of on the fence about this book. I was intrigued by the book because of its humor, but at the same time I wasn't blown away by the plot. Rose is a great character that was snarky, sarcastic, and funny, but other times I found myself groaning inwardly over the dumb stuff that she did. Without the funny moments, I'm not sure I would have liked it as much. 
     There were some serious moments in it, but it wasn't enough to effect me in a way to where I was sad or crying. It just felt like just another story line. It just lacked that ummph for me. But don't get me wrong, it was still a great read. The est thing about it was the fact that it reminded me of myself in high school. Because I was just as awkward lol. 
     Overall, it was a light fun read. It was full of emotions, but I just couldn't connect to the character. There were some things about her I enjoyed, but it wasn't enough to keep me waiting for the next book in the series. 
Overall, I give this


*Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin for letting me view and review this E-ARC. There was no type of incentive given to me for this honest review.

  2. I didn't enjoy this one that much either. The story surrounding such young ages kinda took me by surprise because i felt the context, though true, was too intense for 13 year olds.
