Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
I was debating between 3 and 4 stars and finally decided to give this book 4 stars for the message it sends. It could have been one of those hypocritical books that finds mistakes in everything except for itself but it didn't. This was the story of a girl in a small town that has everything wrong with it - even the things that big-shots think only happen in penthouse suites and billionaires garden parties. It showed that everyone shares common difficulties and common misgivings about the other groups of people. In the last portion of this book, the main character has some serious enlightening going on and she discovers her inner self that she's been holding in for a long time. It's a pretty powerful message.
I didn't give this book 5 stars mostly because I felt no emotion whatsoever except maybe astonishment and the sudden urge to shake the main character until she came to her senses. I didn't get too attached to it so it wasn't amazing to me - just surprisingly enlightening.
This book really is a good read so give it a shot :) 4 stars and I can't wait to read the next one.
