Star athlete and straight-A student Nanette O’Hare has played the role of dutiful daughter for as long as she can remember. But one day, a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper—a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic—and the rebel within Nanette awakens.

As the new and outspoken Nanette attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, she befriends the reclusive author and falls in love with a young, troubled poet. Forced to make some hard choices that bring devastating consequences, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion can sometimes come at a high price.

This was one of those random books that I've come across that I've never checked the description first. I've seen this book around and just never really thought much of it. After reading I found myself really enjoying this. It was unexpected, unique, and I found it really interesting. It was a unique experience seeing Nanette's view on things when she like the turtle quit. (Curious what I'm talking about go read the book) It was tough seeing what her character went through at some points seeing her sink deeper. I found myself really enjoying her character and seeing her go through the confusion, third person and trying to just figure out things rather than sticking to the mold most of the teens were sticking to no questions asked. I loved that there was a book to really impact her to make words into actions and finding others much like herself. And talk about Alex, ultimate fanboy seriously took it a bit too much. He was a bit too impulsive and I didnt' like him much. Overall this is a pretty great book.

I think if your a fan of All the Bright places you might like this book.
