Hate List – Fitting in can be very hard

Hate ListTitle:  Hate List

Author:  Jennifer Brown

Summary:  After a tragic school shooting, Valerie Leftman is a complete outsider who is either seen as a hero or villain.  After writing a “hate list” with her boyfriend that was never meant to cause any harm, she will go back to face all the people she hurt and work towards solving the mystery of who she really is, and how she fit into what occurred that day.

Gut Reaction:  Compelling action, easy to connect with characters.

Stars:  8/10 stars because of the descriptive characters and suspense.

What I loved:  It is easy to relate to how the characters are feeling, and there is always a new part coming up that you didn’t expect. This book keeps you thinking and makes you feel like you are facing the obstacles along with Valerie.

Why:  Fitting in can be very hard at times, and this story shows that you never really know what people are going through. This book also shows how one careless action can lead to a lot of harm if you don’t think before you act which is a good lesson to learn.
