My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
Alright, when I first received this book I was excited to read it because I love stories that showcase true, realistic characters/situations. I did enjoy the book but the ending is not what I expected.
Plot: This story is about a girl how bullied a kid online and he killed himself. In the midst of court/school/family drama, Tori receives a phone call that changes her life forever. I felt like this plot is a good plot that not only flows well but tells a really good story. So many times we see these situation in the news and it can be hard to understand yet this story places the reader where the can see it from every point of view.
Bullying: Before I go on to my last point, I want to say that what this girl did is wrong. She may have thought she was “playing around” but words hurt. I definitely do believe that she should have consequences for what she did.
Ending: This is a major spoiler alert, so please highlight is you want more detail. HIGHLIGHT BELOW:(show spoiler)
Anywhoo, I’m not sure if anyone else felt that way but the ending just threw me off. Overall, the book is still quite good in the lesson it is staying. Don’t bully. Even if you think that it is a joke, words can not be taken back once said.
