#114 - "Cracked Up to Be" by 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. 

My thoughts on the book:
I enjoyed this book a lot! Through the story, you see how Parker is trying to cope with the horrible thing that had happened & slowly the mystery of what really happened & the reason why she changed her behavior unravels! The writing was good and I liked Parker & Jack! It's really deep & emotional book! I was really wrapped up in the story! I wouldn't say that the ending of the book depressed me, but I have to admit that after I finished it, I decided to read something light & fun! Overall, a beautiful book that I recommend it!

My rating: 4.5/5
