Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some CONFESSIONS to make…
#1: I’m livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I’m allowed to be irate, don’t you?
#2: I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who “might” be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.
#3: High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and “seeing red” means being angry-get it?)
Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.
(Don’t know what they mean? Look them up yourself.) (Sorry. That was rude.)
I fell in love with this book and Rose from the very first sentence. As an English major and lover, her use of words and definitions amused me. Confessions of an Angry Girl is one of those books you don’t see that often. I usually prefer some sort of fantasy/paranormal genre book however this book was truly refreshing. Everyone on of those character were relatable. I loved Jamie in his role of the bad boy; the one Rose knew not to get involved with but still found irresistible.
In real life not everyone makes it through high school perfectly, we weren’t all popular, and for some of us it was one of the hardest time sever. I got lucky because I had been going to a private school since sixth grade but as a result of me transferring schools my senior year, I was able to relate with how Rose was feeling. Rozett, the author, did an amazing job in crafting this book. I can say without a doubt that this one of those books everyone should read. There are always book trends with genres going in and out of style everyday but books like this won’t.
So go pick up your copy today, grab a box of tissues, and prepare to laugh and cry your way through this book. Oh and also, especially if you are about to enter high school, read this book. I wish I would have had it when i was younger, it really lets you know that in the end, no matter what, you’ll persevere and everything will sort itself out 🙂
