This is very typical Young Adult fare with every emotion and act being handled with high drama Everything could lead to the end of the world in this girl s mindI don t enjoy this kind of book but I understand its place in juvenile literature It feeds a certain kind of readerThat aside I didn t care for much of this book The premise was slippery at best A girl smart enough to think she can get in to MIT but doesn t apply to any other schools A girl that smart but who lies about applying to other schools A girl that smart athletic and strong enough of nerve to mouth off to a bully who takes on the entire football team but doesn t apply to than one college and lies about it Hmm Doesn t fit for meThe aspect of the girl being a runner and one who often runs as a way to spend time thinking was never explored properly or used efficientlyI liked being surprised that the little boy was actually the son not the brother that we expected of the female bully And the son by the bully s father A great twist and character defining opportunityHaving the boy die seemed totally unnecessary even to create high drama for a YA bookI wouldn t recommned this even to those who like YA books
