Guest Review- Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers

So, Sarah of Sarah's Random Musings wrote this review, and I thank her.


At one point, Parker Fadley was a straight A Student, a Cheerleader, had a great boyfriend, and overall just a nice girl. Suddenly something had one night at a party. Parker is now failing every class and in jeopardy of not graduating. She dumped her boyfriend, Chris. She had been caught drinking in class. What is the secret that Parker holds?

Sarah's Review:

The character are amazing. I could picture Parker, Jake, Chris, and Becky, so well. I loved Parker's Spunky, Witty, and an amazing narrator for the story. I don't want to dig in to the plot that deep, because it is a very strong book that you just have to read. The plot was amazing and had me reading on Christmas Eve till I finished it at about 4 AM. Cracked Up To Be is a real page turner.
I loved the fact that as you read you got flashbacks into the past and that they were done so well. This is easily in my favorite books ever and definitely of 2008. I highly suggest going to your nearest bookstore and pick up this book that is too amazing for words. This is Courtney Summer's debut novel, and I can't wait to read the next one.

Ohh...I've been wanting to read this one forever and missed it coming out. I wish I saw this review before I went and used my 40% off Borders coupon during lunch.
