I was totally confused through most of the book, and really the flashbacks of the main character made things worse for me. Once I kinda caught on to what the story was about I loved it! I have been reading a lot of upbeat teen books lately and this was a great change of pace. Parker is no longer the "perfect" teen character and that just made me love her more. She was once head cheerleader and after a party at her jock boyfriend's house; where something happens ( don't worry.. you'll have to wait for what it was); she goes on a downward spiral that ends with her trying to kill herself. We come into the story after she has been found and is back in school after her suicide attempt. She is no longer head cheerleader nor is she still dating the jock. I love that we got to see the popular side from a different perspective, she once was popular, but has alienated herself ( or at least tried) so we see the popular clique from someone who is still kinda in there but not really. And then Jake comes in, you knew there would have to be a "love" interest.. Jake takes a liking to Parker, no matter how mean or rude she is to him. He slowly weasels his way into her heart and Parker freaks out. But all good things must come to an end and it happens when a blast from her past shows back up at school. The story quickly wraps up from there and I was not at all happy with the ending. I want to know how Parker progresses and if her and Jake actually get a happy ending.… (mere)

So good that when I started it at 2 in the morning I couldn't put it down until I finished it, five hours later. I loved the characters and hated them too. I gave it five star rating, but it's not completely five stars because the ending was so rushed. I was like, "what, that's it?!" So more like a 4.9. I needed a few more pages, like with all books.

Gr 10 Up—When Georgia's dreams of working at exclusive Aspera intersect with investigating the death of her
crush's little sister, she dives headfirst into a world of extravagance and secrecy that no one can survive unscathed.
An unflinching look at the myriad dangers facing teenage girls that is at once jarring and deeply resonant, tender,
and furious.

DNF at 43%. Just not that into this. Lo's intense ambition isn't that relatable or appealing to me; it's obvious it's going to get her into trouble and I don't need the gory details. Plus I have a bunch of other library books I'm excited about.
