Except she is one.
This story is beautifully crafted, not too over the top. You can tell Hesik is around high school aged kids. The language is perfect, the actions are perfect, and the relationships among the kids and faculty are all perfect for high school.
I love how Abbey and Kate's stories mingle, then separate, but still mimic each other. I don't want to ruin anything, so I won't say anything more than that.
The only complaint I have is what happened to the boy who asked out Abbey? He disappeared, never to be heard from again.
I will buy this for my high school library when it is released. I know this book will help some students who might be dealing with similar issues.
