In the tradition of Bridget Jones’s Diary, a lovably flawed high school student chronicles her life as she navigates the highs and lows of family, friendship, school, and love in a diary that sparkles with humor and warmth.
I’m Chloe Winter, and my life is kiiiiind of a disaster.
On the plus side, I got the lead in the musical!
On the down side…
1. I’m a kissing virgin (so so so embarrassing). 2. My best friend, Hannah, is driving me insane. 3. I think I’m in love with Mac Brody, the most popular senior guy, whose girlfriend is so beautiful she doesn’t even need eyeliner. 4. My dad won’t stop asking me if I’m okay. 5. Oh, and my mom moved to Mexico to work on her novel. But it’s fine—she’ll be back soon. She said so.
Mom tells me everything is copy. So I’m writing down all the horrible things that happen to me in this diary.
This is the worst year of my life so far, unless maybe it’s the best.
I don’t really have feelings about this one either way. It didn’t grip me the way I was hoping it would. The characters are kind of horrible. Same stupid mistake after another, but it’s understandable considering the ages of some of the characters.
It’s very much a figuring out who you are story, and I think that was done well. My favorite item was friendship. The relationship Chloe has with her friends is pretty great. They may fight and disagree at times, but they still work through it.
Mostly it was just a meh read for me.
