Summary: Rose is back with more confessions! Sophomore year is starting and Rose hopes to make a new start in this new year. She wants to separate herself from freshman Rose and turn herself into Rose 2.0. She's found a new calling of singing, which she has decided to pursue. Her family is still not the best, with her mother dragging her to therapy twice a week. And, the hot Jamie Forta is still messing with her feelings. Rose is back and definitely has more to say in this solid sequel to Confessions of an Angry Girl.
My Thoughts: I just want to thank Netgalley and Harlequinn TEEN for providing me with an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I thought this was a solid sequel to Confessions of an Angry Girl. Rose is back and trying to navigate through the perils of high school and deal with the grief of living without her father.
While I enjoyed the story, I didn't find it to be the most exciting thing ever. It just didn't feel like a lot of stuff happened through it. I think my problem might be that the contemporary genre is not my absolute favorite thing to read. Don't get me wrong, it's a good, enjoyable book and is probably a slam dunk for readers who love a good contemporary.
Louise Rozett creates a true, realistic teenage voice in Rose that readers can believe in. This is a great story for teens going through the treacherous journey that is high school.
BOOKCITEMENT LEVEL 3/5
Rose provides a realistic teen voice.
