Busting my ass makes me feel good.
Bulletproof, that’s how Jenna Kassarian sees herself. It’s all about control: As long as she works hard, nothing can hurt her. So Jenna constantly pushes — for perfect grades, the ideal boyfriend, the best, best friend.
The only problem is, she doesn’t know if she can stop. If she relaxes even for a second, she’s afraid she’ll lose control completely.
Then Jenna decides it’s now or never. She goes to a party and has one drink. But one drink is all it takes for her perfect facade to shatter. Suddenly she realizes straight A’s can’t protect you in the real world.
This was one of those young adult novels that I had read good reviews about. So I ordered it from PaperBackSwap and anxiously awaited my turn. I jumped right into it and now I don’t know why.
This book was boring. Nothing happens until the very end, so the majority of this book was pretty dull. Yes, it has a learning experience focused for teens on the date rape drugs that are out there. But seriously, teens could learn about it in school with more enthusiasm than this book will. Lucas was boring and pushy. Jenna is boring. Her friends are boring. This book was boring. Enough said before I bore you.
I did not enjoy this book.
