"Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some confessions to make?1. I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate,don't you?
2. I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Fort a, a badass guy who might be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.
3. High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry—get it?)
Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.
(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.)
(Sorry. That was rude.)"
Talk about riling up my emotions. This author sure knows how to work me up! I wasn’t even a quarter way through the book and man, even I was pissed!
The plot of the book is what really catches the reader. Rose has been through hell and back. So how come no one has no compassion for her huh? Everyone just’s wants to jump on her case and make it seems like she is “out of control.” UGH! You don’t know how much I wanted to step into the book and slap these characters silly! Seriously, I don’t think I ever had my blood pressure get so high. Oh, wait a minute. Yes, now that I recall, Ms. Rachel Vincent does the same thing to me. Same publisher too. The irony is astounding. *scratches chin*
Anywhoo back to Ms. Rozett. Honey, you are a genius. Her characters are raw yet you can feel them developing right in front of you. I enjoyed being in their shoes and feeling every single depth of emotions that they give off. I like that Rose has so much on her mind to say. Sometimes, and this is totally true, I found myself saying exactly what she is thinking out loud before I even read it HA! Freaky huh?
There is a love interest that I found enduring yet ending so suddenly. I know that these two can be so much more but people just don’t know how to mind their own damn business! And that’s what gets you about this love. They are totally meant to be. Except for the snobby people who I like to slap! *ugh* Given the chance, these two can grow and learn from each other. Already, they are fight for the love that has not even begin yet. That’s why folks, I am already needing the second book.
Confessions Of An Angry Girl is all that you wanted to say and more. Sarcastic thoughts, followed by murderous glares, you just know what she is thinking. I found myself quickly caught up in a beautifully written book who’s emotions are hidden off to the world. This bittersweet tale of young girl just trying to make her way, will blow your mind.
I give it 5 BITES!
