There Are No Spoilers In This Review

Words cannot describe how much I adore this book. I think I loved from the first line of the book. The book follows a girl named Parker who isn’t your average protagonist. She isn’t the nicest of persons to sum it up. The thing though that draws you in is that she wasn’t always like this. She was popular and captain of the cheer team, but now she is falling behind in school and ruining her relationships. Enter Jake the new kid who just won’t seem to leave her alone and you have a beautiful story about finding out what caused Parker to fall from the top.

The writing of this story was beautifully done. The chapters weren’t too short or too long. It was easy to read but not too easy that you felt like you were reading a child’s book. There were dark plots to this book as well. Everything was realistic, all the relationships and the characters’ reactions, even the characters were so realistic. This book also has a very good mysterious tone to it; I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what happens next.

Overall, I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars for a reason and that is that I loved it and I would recommend it to anyone especially any young adults.

Some Girls Are is about a girl named Regina who is best friends with the most popular girl in school, Anna. She is the second in command of the Fearsome Five. But then, she is ‘frozen out’ by her new ex-best friends after vicious rumors spread about her and Anna’s boyfriend. She is brutally bullied by the people she thought were her friends and was forced to seek solace with the only person who probably hated her the most; Michael Hayden someone she had taken part of bullying into isolation. Just as their friendship starts to become promising threats make her rethink their relationship. It is Mean Girls meets Pretty Little Liars.

Courtney Summers writing is beautiful in this. I loved it and I want more of this story. I hated Regina at times, but that is because she was a bully, then I loved her at times because she really seemed to be trying to be a better person. Overall, Regina has somehow found a way to make me like her even after all she has done. Give this book a try if you like revenge and seeing it unfold. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of The Plastics.
