Summary:Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has someconfessions 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 nowenraged 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 My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time.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: Well, well, well what a fun cute little novel. And when I say little, I mean it was a pretty short and fast read for me.

We are introduced to Rose who is a freshmen in high school. Things aren’t easy for her, especially when it feels like her best friend is becoming someone new, and she develops a crush on a badass trouble making boy named Jamie. And of course Jamie has a mean mean girlfriend.

Rose just lost her father and everyone feels a bit sorry for her. Her brother is away at college and her mother barely pays attention to what is going on with her.

Rose does the unthinkable. Worried about her friend, she calls the cops at a party when her friend isn’t breathing. From then on out, she is called a lot of names and tormented. She has a tough life.

And Rose has a problem, because she really likes Jamie and wants to be with him.

I really liked this novel because I felt like I could connect with Rose. At times, she did get a bit whiney but I understood where she was coming from. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series which comes out next year.

This was a bit funny, a bit romance, and a good glimpse into what its like to be going into high school and not knowing who you are just yet.

There were a lot of characters throughout this novel who I really liked and loved reading about. Not just Rose and Jamie!

Want to know what happens with Jamie? The mean girl? Her best friend? Her brother? Read this novel to find out!

Overall: I really enjoyed this one. It was somewhat short and easy to get through. Will I pick up the next in the series? Definitely.

Cover: Like it but I don’t really love it. I think it fits good enough though.

What I'd Give It:

It seems like this book is catching a lot of people by surprise, including me. It just has some surprising depth and did a great job of keeping me intrigued. Can't wait for the sequel!

This book always manages to surprise me, because there is more depth to it than I expected. I might even try it out, while it doesn't sound like something I normally read. Great review!
