Rating: 3 stars



SynopsisEveryone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party.

But did you know Alice was sexting Brandon when he crashed his car?

It’s true. Ask ANYBODY.

Rumor has it that Alice Franklin is a slut. It’s written all over the bathroom stall at Healy High for everyone to see. And after star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car accident, the rumors start to spiral out of control.

In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students—the girl who has the infamous party, the car accident survivor, the former best friend, and the boy next door—tell all they know.

But exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there’s only one person to ask: Alice herself.



My Thoughts: I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this book overall. I liked that the point’s of views flowed well together. I liked Kurt and Josh’s characters/points of view the best. I was not a fan of Elaine and Kelsie what so ever. They were the worst kind of high school girls, the ones who say things and start rumors just because they are bored or so they have something to talk about. I liked that Alice’s point of view was last and she didn’t talk about anything that happened throughout the story really. I also liked that the truth about what happened came out throughout the story. I am rating this book a 3 out of 5 stars for right now, I may change my rating later on. I liked it, but I don’t feel like it was anything spectacular.
