The protagonist of , Parker, is hard to like. The only thing I can say it's that I didn't want to be me anymore. She used to be popular, heard-of-class and strikingly good at everything. They are awful and vulnerable in equal measure. But on my senior year, I lost it. You're not so wrong after all.
It had nothing but raving reviews and I was looking forward to reading it. They have this format where it's almost like the author has managed to zap themselves between the pages, luring you inside and whispering the words into your awaiting mind and holding your hand as they lead you along the story's path. Courtney Summers However, at the moment and we don't possess specifics of the actual musician Courtney Summers. Because I think that's why I can relate to Parker - I can understand why she's acting out of character, or more accurately, out of what others assume to be her personality. But everything you do here counts.
And I don't really care if anyone reads it or doesn't read it because I can't give people an honest answer. Your life doesn't have to be as complicated as you think it is. Parker sure doesn't make it easy to love her, she is unapologetic, smart-ass, and straight-on bitchy at some point. You become immersed in Parker's mind. But I also hated a lot of parts, as well. If you're just getting started with her novels, I recommend reading first, mainly because I think that one speaks to a wider audience than , which will suit some and not others.
I don't understand where all their care is coming from. No one can be responsible for what happened to Jessica Wellington but the person who actually killed her. Parker Fadley used to be the cheerleading captain, girlfriend of the most popular guy in school, and future valedictorian. The used-to-be cheerleading captain turned angry emo tells us that something has happened to this girl to change her so drastically. I felt so much for Parker because she's been hiding away what she feels. I will say this much, I thought I had it figured out and I was wrong wrong wrong, and that is usually not the case. Another problem that nagged at the back of my brain was the fact that Parker had an ex who still cared about her, and a guy who was falling for her.
The story even though focused on a a destructive character still has humor and Parker even though depressed is very spunky. This was well-written, and the voice was definitely there, but as a whole, the book irritated me. The supporting cast is also completely well-defined. On a serious note, I love reading realistic fiction because it portrays human emotion in scenarios in a way you can actually relate to. She writes the horrifically mean girl like no one else. She doesn' I had very high hopes for this book.
And not necessarily in a good way. You get away with a lot even after you're caught. Your current responses to lease Cracked Up to Be - different viewers should be able to determine with regards to a book. Sorry, I can't stop, I want to say, but I don't. You can't control the way things end up.
She hardly remembers what happened herself, though she's slowly regaining her memory of this horrific event that we're in the midst of discovering alongside her. A nail here, a red heart there. I hated when she pushed him away or made him think she felt less about him than she really did. Chris is popular, cute, all dimples. I picture a mental ward when I read that. But what is similar about these two authors is how well-realized their narrators' voices are. By far, the best part of the novel is Parker herself.
That I'd be able to finish it. I stopped about halfway through and skipped around until the end. We try so hard to find perfection. Not to mention that we can't help but wait to know what happened to Parker to explain why she lost it. I grab my brush, slam my locker shut and race against the flow of students heading to their respective homerooms.
