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.
