Summary: Paloma High School is ordinary by anyone’s standards. It’s got the same cliques, the same prejudices, the same suspect cafeteria food. And like every high school, every student has something to hide—whether it’s Kat, the thespian who conceals her trust issues onstage; or Valentine, the neurotic genius who’s planted the seed of a school scandal.
When that scandal bubbles over, and rumors of a teacher-student affair surface, everyone starts hunting for someone to blame. For the unlikely allies at the heart of it all, the collision of their seven ordinary-seeming lives results in extraordinary change [x].
Review: This book was a very interesting interpretation on life in high school. You get all the different aspects of each type of student and home life within each of the 7 characters POVs. When you think of 7 POVs you think that the book/plot is going to be awfully confusing but it was told in such a way that it works. I would say that this is probably the most realistic book about high school. This author got it. They understood.
One thing that is bothering me about new books in this time is the putting in different social media outlets. Like Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter, Instagram etc. etc. I just don’t like how they are making there way into books. I know, things change and I should probably get used to it but it just makes me cringe. To each their own.
However, I really enjoyed this book! Very original and very happy that it was so realistic!
Thank you NetGalley for providing the copy to review.
