Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some confessions to make…1. I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?
2. I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who might be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.
3. High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry—get it?)
Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.
(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.)
(Sorry. That was rude.)
Confessions of an Angry Girl wasn’t the kind of book I thought I would read in one sitting. Yet, once I had started this book, I simply couldn’t put it down. There is something about the story, about Rose that left me wanting more. Maybe it’s because I know to a certain extend what’s rose is going through, maybe it is simply because you cannot not like Rose. All I know it that I’m already dying for the sequel to come out; to know what will happen next to rose.
Louise Rozett created characters that you could easily feel their emotions, here mainly Rose. It was easily to feel what she was feeling, easy to understand (at least to me) why she was feeling the way she was. What really blew my mind with this book was how well I could recognize all those feelings that come with losing a parent, how real they felt. That’s probably one of the reason why I really liked Rose the way I did, why I couldn’t put down this book. To me, it’s probably one of the books that portrayed the grieving process the most similar to the way I had grieved (not with the Jamie back story and everything, but mostly in all her feeling regarding the world and her family).
I’m seriously having trouble putting words on what I’m feeling, so soon after having read that book. Louise Rozett did an amazingly awesome job at creating this story. Her writing was simply perfect for the story, leaving me only begging for more. I’m already counting the days until Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend comes out, because this book was that amazing. A book I would certainly recommend to any contemporary lover, or anyone looking for a breathtaking and captivating novel. Personally, this book took my breath away, because it really spoke to me, and it simply rang true to me.
