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.

Synopsis:

This special anniversary edition of Anderson's National Book Award-winning novel includes an new Introduction and Afterword by the author, resources, a discussion guide, and a special preview of Anderson's newest book, "Wintergirls."

Synopsis:

The quintessential edition for all fans of this powerfully moving book.

This book was very poignant and showed how cruel high school years can be - especially when your "friends" don't know the whole story. I think every HS student should have to read this, and maybe it would be something that would make them think about things in a new light. I felt like I was thinking everything Melinda was thinking, while trying to just make it through the day. Highly recommended.
