Life Unaware (YA)
Book #55 Read in 2015
Life Unaware by Cole Gibson (YA)
This was a powerful read which I could not put down. Set in a high school where, like most, there are the popular kids and those who are on the fringe, Regan is a popular girl, daughter of a famous politician. Then all of her private messages, where she is judging her classmates, are taped to the lockers belonging to those she had talked about. Regan becomes a social pariah immediately and this book tells of the bullying she faced. Nolan, her friend's brother, becomes her only friend and the two decide to do a video project where Regan apologizes to those she had hurt. This book shows the truly vicious nature of bullying and how it affects its victims. I think high school girls would eat this book up. It was well written and the characters were complex and interesting. I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
