This book was funny and quirky. I got caught up in Roo’s life and her friendships, both the laughter and the drama. I think she’s likable, a girl I would have liked to be friends with when I was in high school, someone who’s side I would have been on.
I liked both her character and the supporting characters such as her parents, her boyfriends (not 15 of them no matter what the book’s cover says), the girl she carpools with, her best friends, even a teacher.
This book is essentially about a big misunderstanding and a girl who makes mistakes and what happens when she hurts the people around her. However, to say that’s all that the book about would be simplistic. It’s also about a girl learning about herself, learning how to be honest and true to herself. She also learns what it’s like to be on the receiving end of gossip and learns what it’s like to not fit in.
This is a funny story, a fast read (it took me a day and a half to read it), and I recommend it for anyone who likes realistic YA fiction novels about teenage girls and their social lives.
