I just finished the book and am not sure how I want to review it. I could hardly put the book down due to the author's craft of keeping the reader wanting to know the answer to the newest mystery. Yet the book was not spectacular. I really don't mean that as a negative statement. This was a solid five star YA book.
I do believe middle school and high school girls will devour it as I did.
I just fell in love with the main character, Portia and admired her terribly. I felt sorry for the predicaments she got herself into due to wanting to be kind and respect others. Portia told herself she did what she did for acceptance, but I felt her motives were deep down compassionate even though she herself didn't recognize that.
Here is a statement Portia makes only to herself about Mindy. Mindy has claimed to be Denise's friend for years. You decide. There is a lot of hard truth in her following statement.
I think Mindy should talk to someone other than Denise. Maybe a mental health professional. Anyone with problems so severe that it drives them to hurt others in order to feel better about themselves needs help.”
