This book is a so up to date type of story, dealing with a socializing online and offline,people looking for drama, and bulling. A modern plot with modern and not so modern problems. Narrated in first person, Lucy, it make the reader get in the mind of a confused, hurt, scared teen who doesn't know what to do with the scandal everyone thinks she created. I have to say that Lucy was not my favorite character, thou I liked how she reacts to everything in the end. She shows strength and heart. My favorite is her sister, Jayla, I so loved how she talks, which in some way totally make sense and is the truth.
"Sorry you've wasted four years of your life with a bunch of bottom-feeding ass-vampires who thrive on inventing tragedies just so they can suck blood of the innocent, turning a young woman's private pain into a public feeding trough for a pack of raisin-balled drama-whoring maggots who'd trade in the ashes of their own grandmothers for five seconds of pleasure at the expense of those women on whom their sham-factory, boob-envying livelihoods depend."
I liked the character interaction in this book. So real. Specially Cole and Lucy's relationship, it may seem wrong at the beginning but it really is beautiful. How he makes her pain go away just by being there for her.
"Sometimes the right hug from the right person at the exact right time makes all wrong in the world disappear."
This book makes a statement about bullying (online and offline), and what could be done. What is happening to teens all over the world. How social media could be harmful if not used right or for the right reasons, to bring together people not pulled them apart.
"Social networking should bring people together, not serve as an online gladiator arena."
A different and modern book. 3 #scandalous Stars.
BTW Loved Lucy's dog name. Night of the Living Dog. Awesome.
