This year everything is different for Sherm Russo as he gets to know Bridge Barsamian. What does it mean to fall for a girl—as a friend?
On Valentine's Day, an unnamed high school girl struggles with a betrayal. How long can she hide in plain sight?
- There was a lot packed into this book. It was thought provoking and humorous.
- Some of the issues that were covered were a little heavy for a middle grade novel, but they were important issues that all kids and parents should be aware of.
- The pacing of the story was perfect. I was hooked from the beginning, and I didn't want to stop.
- I wanted to scream and yell at Emily to stop texting that boy, but alas, I knew she wouldn't hear me. I didn't like how forgiving Emily was. She should have been livid at that boy. Why did she believe his story? I don't believe anything he said.
- I liked Bridge's growth, and how she learned who she was and how she fit into the world. Middle school is an awkward age.
- I'm excited to read more from this author.
