He says: You're an awful person.
He says: What makes you think I would ever ask you out?.
He says: The world would be a better place without you in it..

Lara just got told off on Facebook.

She thought that Christian liked her, that he was finally going to ask her to his school's homecoming dance. They've been talking online for weeks, so what's with the sudden change? And where does he get off saying horrible things on her wall? Even worse - are they true?

It's been a long time since Lara's felt this bad, this depressed, this ugly. She's worked really hard to become pretty and happy - and make new friends after what happened in middle school.

Bree used to be best friends with overweight, depressed Lara, but constantly listening to Lara's issues got to be too much. Secretly, Bree's glad Christian called Lara out. Lara's not nearly as amazing as people think. But no one realized just how far Christian's harsh comments would push Lara. Not even Bree.

As online life collides with real life, things spiral out of control, and not just for Lara. Because when the truth starts to come together, the backlash is even more devastating than anyone could have ever imagined.

What are you waiting on?

  1. Kay

    I read her previous book, Want To Go Private? – scary stuff. I’ll put this one on my list. To me, these are the kinds of books that parents of teens need to read.

  2. I hadn’t seen this one before – I need to be better about Scholastic’s upcoming releases now that they’re not on NetGalley. I have read another book by the author and this one sounds really good so I’ve added it to my tbr list. Thanks!
