Better than expected

When I got the book, I was excited to read it, but didn't expect TOO much of it. To me it sounded a bit shallow, but I adored the cover, so I gave it a shot. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading the book and I think...

Funny yet touching

First of all, thank you Hachette Children’s Books for this review copy! I’d already enjoyed reading The DUFF a lot, and this book promised to be set in the same world, and might even be better. So thanks again for getting me this book! Lying Out Loud,...
