I don't even know where to begin. This book is being added to my list of favorites. I've been stuck in such a life rut lately and I feel like this book gave me a push of motivation. It's a book about taking chances and doing things outside of your comfort zone. Plus there is a great plot to go along with it.
Parker Frost never deviates from the choices her mother makes for her. She never breaks the rules or even skips class. Her best friend, Kat, wants Parker to do something unexpected before they graduate high school. Not even something crazy. Kat just wants Parker to do one unexpected thing before they leave the comfort of high school. Stealing the journal of a girl who died ten years ago is unexpected, right?
I loved being able to read parts from Julianna's journal. It really gives you a deeper look into her life and proves the saying, "things aren't always as them seem" right.
Okay, now I just want to gush about how much I loved this book and tell you to read it. But instead I'll leave you with a quote from the book. This book is seriously full of quotes that I can relate to SO much. This is a favorite:
"But almost moments don't count, and it all comes down to the choices I could've made but didn't".
