Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops. Now her old friends won't talk to her, and people she doesn't even know hate her from a distance. The safest place to be is alone, inside her own head. But even that's not safe. Because there's something she's trying not to think about, something about the night of the party that, if she let it in, would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smithereens. And then she would have to speak the truth. This extraordinary first novel has captured the imaginations of teenagers and adults across the country.

For an author to so eloquently and accurately tell us what's going on inside a teenage girl's head is amazing enough...to do it and address a strikingly painful and difficult topic as Anderson does is miraculous. Anyone who works with teenagers -- and all teenagers -- should to read this.

This was a very inspiring book about a young girl who feels the weight of the world on her shoulders because of a secret she feels she needs to keep hidden. I dont think Ive ever wanted to look and see what happened in the end of the book as much as I wanted to do in this one. Laurie Halse Anderson has a unique ability to be in the mind of a troubled young teenager.
