This book was NOT what I expected, it was so much more! I really thought I was getting a silly little girly book and then.. wham! it was this dark look at a young girls tormented life. Barbie has it rough and she wears her skanky-who-gives-a-shit attitude like steel armor. It protects her from the pain and reality of her life. Dylan is the boy she has always felt something for and he fails to recognize Barbie for who she is rather than who she portrays. But not Third! He sees right through Barbie and all her armor and he, along with Roxie, become her best friends and ally's in the book. I truly enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading more!
