This book is told through journal entries from 5 different people attending high school during their freshman year. Each one of them has an interesting back story that leads them to intertwine with the others. Secret crushes (and obsessions!), a gay friend, movie-star wanna-be’s, basketball stars, hurt feelings, muddled grades, previous home-schooled experience….these kids have a lot on their plates. AND they are each pretending to have it all together on the outside, while things are really falling apart.
This was a pretty good book, but confusing to keep track of who was talking during each chapter. There didn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to the order of their freshman year being told out during the book. The ending is a cliff hanger that screams for a sequel, so if you can’t stand to wait….read this after the next one comes out!!
