Breslin deals with drama in his own family after the death of his father while trying to deal with the drama at his high school. He falls in love with Daisy, a bookworm who is the captain of the school’s dance team. He is pulled through lies and manipulation brought on by the head cheerleader. Breslin is confused when he sees his girlfriend kissing the head cheerleader’s boyfriend. Having a girlfriend becomes even more stressful when he is beaten up by Daisy’s ex-boyfriend.
Plot: The plot contained conflict as well as twists and turns that I was not expecting.
Characters: The characters were interesting and had elements of depth. Breslin’s character was affected by his father’s death and that played out in his actions. He also had thoughts that were entertaining to read.
The lack of quotation marks in parts of the book was distracting but overall it was a good read.
