Review: Confessions of an Angry Girl

Title: Confessions of an Angry Girl
Author: Louise Rozett
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication date: Aug 28, 2012

Summary: Freshman Rose Zarelli has rage issues. First of all, her father lost his job, took work as a contractor in Iraq...and never came home. Second, she likes the wrong guy and his super-intense, scary cheerleader girlfriend is now her nemesis. Third, her fashionista best friend, Tracy, is suddenly infinitely cooler than she is--and talking about losing her virginity. (What?!)Rose is ahead when it comes to studying for the PSAT, but she's so far behind socially that she might as well be moving backward. She needs Tracy's help choosing the right clothes, she likes all the wrong extracurricular activities, and she can't even make a decision about which photo of her father to put on the memorial website she's making (and hiding from her adolescent-shrink mother). With her brother away at college and her mother always locked in her office with her messed-up teen patients, Rose struggles to get through each day without inflicting bodily harm on anyone.

Review: I really wanted to read Confessions of an Almost Angry Girl. I love the character, they remind me of my friends, family so much, and even a bit of myself. Jamie reminds me of my boyfriend Aaron. He's got that air of mystery, a bit of a bad boy vibe. People view it as dangerous but he in the end shows that he has a really sweet side that is rarely shown. So much pain hidden inside him. Rose kind of reminds me of... well me, she's introverted, cautious, over analyzes and over plans, but she stands up for her friends when she thinks they are being mistreated, no matter the circumstance. The book is filled with many twists and turns it is shocking, sad, scary and just a little bit dangourus. You must read the Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
