Jess @ Gone with the Words - It made me really upset too, seeing her get ostracized for being smart and unique. 🙁 And then really happy seeing her discover the thing she was meant to do/be. 🙂 Great review, Estelle!

Ellice Y - I HAVE to read this one because the MC has my name– that RARELY happens (it’s spelled a little differently, but hey, I’ll take it! haha). Great review 🙂

Marianne @ Boricuan Bookworms - I’ve heard a lot of great things from this book, but I’ve never actually wanted to pick it up. I’m reconsidering now that I read this review! Great review!

katy - This one sounds awesome! I’ve seen a lot of good things about it but haven’t read any reviews before this one. Elise sounds like a fascinating character,and DJing seems awesome. I have always wanted to learn to DJ but I’m pretty sure I’d be notsogreat at it.

“Learning to like yourself and accept your lot in life is a task we have to commit to every day. There is always someone who isn’t going to like our decisions, or agree with us, or like us for whatever reason.” So true, so true.

I’m glad to see it has great supporting characters and family dynamics, too. This was already on my TBR but now I want to read it anymore, awesome review!

Bookworm1858 - The search for identity really resonated with me too. Though I wasn’t bullied at school, I still never really felt like I fit in and it hasn’t been until now, after graduating college, that I’m feeling more in place.
