Review by: Stephanie Ziegler on June 23, 2013 :
Wow! I could not put this book down. I felt like I was reliving my younger years.

The book is written in Lizzie's point-of-view. It is fast reading and is exactly like a teenager's mind. Pure honesty of mind versus speaking words that people only wanted to hear.

The title, Watch Me Disappear, applies not only to Lizzie, the main character, but to Maura as well. This book teaches important lessons through Lizzie, but pay attention to Maura. Sometimes issues are far greater and easier to hide than my best friend stole the boy I like.

I felt so many emotions reading this book. Happiness reflecting on my first kiss, anger remembering the popular girl who made my middle school years hell, pity and sadness knowing what these kids were going through and no one recognizing any of it to help. My mother is a mirror of Lizzie's mother. And I was Maura. I felt great empathy and understanding and I hope this book opens the eyes of teens and their parents.

Until next time, live life one page at a time!

Review by: Joanne Molay on Dec. 19, 2012 :
This was an interesting and well written YA book. It's about a high school senior that is finally breaking out of her shell and learning about life. I enjoyed reading the book because it made me reminisce about my high school experience. I recommend this book to my friends that enjoy Young Adult novels.

Review by: Megan on Dec. 18, 2012 :
I wasn't sure what to expect what I started this, but I absolutely loved it. Lizzie is starting senior year at a new school and has never quite fit in. She is very real and very honest. She calls herself out on selfishness and being quick to judge, acknowledging that she's disappointed in herself. She goes through making and losing friends, popularity and all that entails. She actually reminds me a lot of my high school self, and a lot of people could probably relate.
