Rose Zarelli has big plans for sophomore year—everything is going to be different. This year, she’s going to be the talented singer with the killer voice, the fabulous girl with the fashionista best friend, the brainiac who refuses to let Jamie Forta jerk her around...
...but if she’s not careful, she’s also going to be the sister who misses the signals, the daughter who can only think about her own pain, the “good girl” who finds herself in mid-scandal again (because no good deed goes unpunished) and possibly worst of all...the almost-girlfriend.
When all else fails, stop looking for love and go find yourself.
“I did the wrong thing, and I lost him for real.
But did you do the wrong thing? Jamie thinks it was the wrong thing. But do you?
No. I don't.
I didn't do what Jamie would have wanted me to do, but that doesn't mean it was wrong.”
Few Wild Words Quickie
Realistic and true to the perspective of a teenager and full off ups and downs throughout.
This series is basically a lot of fun to read.Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend was just as awesome and fun as the first book. Same as the first one, I finished it in one sitting and nothing could tear me away from it. This book is definitely not to everyone's tastes, personally I love how it's such a light and engaging read.
I was extremely happy to be reunited with Rose again, it's fun to be in her head with her random and angry ramblings. She does many things that make her unlikable in so many ways, but I think all the drama that is created makes it interesting and easy to get into. 'Rose 2.0' is much more confident and can speak for herself which I liked a lot. But there is still that scared and insecure girl, I hope to see her grow in the future and slowly mature (hint: more confession books please!)
The other thing that I like about this series is how the author introduces many teen issues and you get to see how different characters respond to them. The therapy sessions with Rose and her mother were entertaining (I'm so bad for laughing at other people's pain).
Moving onto Rose and Jamie. Like what am I even meant to think anymore? I can't quite make up my mind about these two. One minute I'm completely shipping these two and the next I am angry at Jamie for being so badass and Rose for being so caught up in his mess. Secretly I want them to get together though.
All I can think is OMG. Did that actually happen? My heart stopped for a second reading it. If I don't find out what happens next I will go crazy. WHAT A WAY TO END THE BOOK!
I love this series mainly because of all the drama but also the reality that some teens face is presented so truly. Do I have to say that I love it yet again?
THIS SERIES IS TOTALLY WORTH GIVING A GO!
