Hot Mess by Madeline A. Rosenberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Final Score - 4 What Did I Get Myself into Stars!
*received ARC from Author in exchange for honest review*
This story was a total soap teen opera come to life, but in book for. And what a story it was to read! I could totally image this as one of those after school specials that used to play back in the 90's when I was growing up.
It was actually hard sometimes to follow because lets face it, it's been YEARS since I was this young/stupid/crazy/etc. However, I actually found myself hooked on the story line - when I could follow it that it. It was all over the place at times, and I found myself lost quite a bit.
I however could not connect with any of the characters. I don't quite remember high school being like this. I guess this is a look into the new generations though process? If so, I'm scared and sacred for today's youth.
The tragedy that happens among the characters had me tearing up a bit. I can't imagine how they'll deal with it or not quite deal. While I did enjoy the story, the ending? Was that an actual end or a continuation? It felt so abrupt and wasn't at all what I was expecting.
