Anatomy of a Misfit (YA)
Book #89 Read in 2014
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes (YA)
This book details the pressure of being one of the popular kids, maintaining that popularity and the affect that bullying can have on high school students. Anika is most likely the third most popular girl in her class and, to keep her standing, she bows to the whim of Becky, the most popular girl. Anika begins a secretive relationship with Logan; this relationship must be hidden because Logan isn't deemed a cool boyfriend by Becky. Add in to this some dysfunctional familial relationships as well as stealing and domestic violence and you have a book full of edgy teenage angst. This book was well written and just flowed. I recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
