Cracked Up To Be - Courtney Summers
Perfect Parker Fadley isn’t so perfect anymore. She’s quit the cheerleading squad, she’s dumped her perfect boyfriend, and she’s failing school. Her parents are on a constant suicide watch and her counselors think she’s playing games…but what they don’t know, the real reason for this whole mess, isn’t something she can say out loud. It isn’t even something she can say to herself. A horrible thing has happened and it just might be her fault. If she can just remove herself from everybody--be totally alone--then everything will be okay...The problem is, nobody will let her.
The Simplified Version:
Rating: A+, or five hearts.
This book is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Every single good review you've seen about this book is true: it lives up to each and every one of them.
Everything about this book is good: characters, plot, everything. The characters are deep, I'll just let you know that, haha.
But seriously. I'm going to keep this really short and simple: if you haven't read this yet, GO GET IT RIGHT NOW. If you don't.... I'll find you and haunt you until you get it. :p
I'm also keeping it short because you've probably already seen a gazillion and one reviews for this. If you want a more in depth review of this book by me, check out The Read Carpet Podcast here. This is the book I reviewed for it. :)
I can't wait to red more by Summers. :)
