"Good movie, great book"
4 stars"

This is a really good read, I read this book after watching the movie based on the book, starring a pre-twilight Kristen Stewart. I really enjoyed the move, but the book was even better. Its an easy and intriguing read. I would definatly recommend this book.

"Touching"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A good read for any teenager (girl) who ever felt lonely, different. One of my favourite books throughout college, it spoke to in ways that friends couldn't. A rather sad book, but sometimes you need that, to understand that your own life isn't that bad. And hey, makes a great essay on symbolism!

Description

A fiercely authentic, critically acclaimed and award-winning modern classic. 'Speak up for yourself - we want to know what you have to say.' From my first day at Merryweather High, I know this is a lie. Nobody will even talk to me, let alone listen - all because I called the cops on an end-of-summer party. But if I could only tell everyone why I called the police that night... If I could explain what happened to me... If I could speak... Then everything might change. 'With the rise of women finding their voices and speaking out about sexual assault in the media, this should be on everyone's radar... Powerful, necessary, and essential.' - Kirkus
