Alexa Y. - I’m certainly looking forward to reading this book! I just recently read PERFECT ESCAPE, and loved the way that Brown was able to tell her story. Her characters were really well-written, and the story was simple but still very meaningful. I loved it, and would highly recommend it!

Laura @ the Booksmartie - Hi there! Here’s another Jennifer Brown newbie *waves excitedly*!! Well, not…a newbie, exactly, as I still haven’t read anything by her – yet! I really want to, though. You make this book sound really, really good and interesting, but I think I’d like to read another one of hers first -just since I don’t really feel attracted to the topic…Hate List sounds like a good novel, as well, I think!

Kelly - I love how many issues this explores! You’re so right about this being such a hot button issue right now, with the amount of teens sexting without realizing what the consequences might be if their nudies were to end up in the wrong hands. High school is hard enough without a naked photo of yourself circulating for everyone and their dog to see!

Lori - I’m so happy to hear that you loved this one! I really, really loved Hate List, but then Bitter End fell flat for me. I really need to give her others a try. This sounds like a good place to start.

Bookworm1858 - I think this topic is so timely and I hope it opens up some discussion with young people (and not so young people) who seem to increasingly be caught up in situations like that. Still can’t believe that Ashleigh is the one given community service!

Rachel - Oh yay! This is the first review I’ve read for this book and I’m happy to hear that you liked it! I’m looking forward to reading this one because of it’s extreme relevancy, as well as the fact that I don’t think I’ve ever read a book on this topic before. I’ve read one novel by Jennifer in the past and loved it, so I definitely have high hopes for this one!

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - I’ve heard that Jennifer Brown is an incredible author, so I’m happy to see you enjoyed this book. I definitely need to check out some of her work, I’ve heard Hate List is especially good. Fantastic review!

Andrea @Cozy Up With A Good Read - Wow, I’ve seen this book around a few times, I think it sounds like such an amazing book. Issue books really have such a strong message. This is one I definitely want to read, it sounds like Jennifer Brown is an amazing writer. Thanks for the review!
