In Rachel Cohn's newest book, Very
Lefreak, we meet a girl named Veronica who calls herself Very.  She is
a party girl with an addiction to all things technological.  Very is
the girl everyone wants to know, wants to see and even wants to be. 
There is more to Very than her online and her party life college girl
personas show, but will she ever learn to be just Veronica?  Things in
her real life get out of hand and Very is sent off to techno-rehab at a
place called ESCAPE.  The story then follows her steps to "recovery"
and who she meets along the way.  Very Lefreak is a joyride through
Very's social life, personal life, and eventually her struggle to make
it through.  Will she make it out alive? Or will her past come back to
haunt her?  It is up to you to find out.

This is the second book I've read
from Rachel Cohn and I was not disappointed.  Though this book, was a
bit more sexual then I would have preferred in a young adult novel, it
was still a great story.  Cohn has an amazing talent at writing
characters that are believable and real.  She uses languages that is
true to the age groups she portrays, and her scenarios are realistic
and current.  This book is filled with internet jargon, places, and
things that today's teenagers experience on a daily basis.  I loved the
references to Iphones, social networks, and play lists.  Cohn
definitely created a world where her readers can relate.  The best part
was that I never got the feeling that anything was lacking research or
was not lived by Very. I also loved the depth of Very that you do not
get in books like this.  Though she is very superficial and bland on
the surface, she also has this deep past and has emotions that she has
tried to cover up.  This is a great book for a generation living in
this century.  I would recommend this book for an older teen crowd
because of all the grown up language and sexual content, but it still a
great read.  Rachel Cohn never disappoints and with Very LeFreak she
has won me again.
