This was an okay-ish book about a girl who has had something really bad happen and is struggling to move past it emotionally.
Courtney Summers is a perennially popular author - I've read reviews of people going nuts for her books and rating them like they have literally changed their lives. That's great, but I just don't get the same feels. Even All The Rage, which had me jumping out of my skin with anger at the treatment of the MC, didn't grip me and leave me thinking what an awesome book I'd just read.
I really rate Courtney Summers for the issues that she tackles in her books - she seems to be able to home in on exactly what a nightmare it is to be a teenaged girl sometimes. However, I'm not really sure about her writing style. Her plots seem to meander a bit and her characterization is patchy. I don't have to agree with the protagonist of a book, but I do have to be able to root for them (even when they're evil). I just don't seem to care about Courtney Summers' characters that much. I know she's famed for writing unlikeable girls, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't care what happens to them.
A real problem I had here was that I could see exactly what the 'big issue' was that had screwed Parker up so badly, but the book took an incredibly long time in actually getting there.
This was an okay book, but it didn't rock my world. I'm not sitting here still thinking and wondering about the characters. In fact, I had to double check Parker's name before I started writing this review, and that's never a good sign.
