I understand the point of trying not to take sides, to tell the story from the bully's point of view. But I wonder if the teenage kids reading this book will. In the last pages Sara seems to finally understand what she did but most of the book she blames Emma and everyone else for what she did. The author does a great job of capturing a high school girl's voice. So well I think young readers may agree. And it is not a neutral subject. Just like the Prince case it is fictionalizing there are people who harmed others. There are bullies. And Sara is a bully. Not a victim. I worry that's not always real clear and that sometimes the book makes bullying seem okay and excuses or downplays terrible behavior. If a young person I know were reading this book I would be sure I had conversations with them to make sure Sara didn't end up a hero.
Really enjoyed this book, since it was unabridged it was a little long, but it's a good story for anybody to read/listen. bullying is a real issue. Writing was amazing! love the way she described situations
