I did enjoy this book. There were some parts I was laughing out loud. I could relate to the lead character. I think a lot of girls were her in highschool. The only thing I didn't like was there were a lot of characters that were brought up and given a little story and then they kinda faded into the background. Or if they were brought up it was for a page and then gone again. Some of these characters had a serious subject brought up and should have been explored more. I didn't mind their stories, but either have them in or out. All in all I really liked the book.

I loved this book! If this book had been around while I was in high school, I think my high school experience would have been that much better! This is a must read for all high school students. I've always been a fan of Ms. Crane's books and this one does not disappoint. This may be a young adult book but readers of all ages will enjoy this! If you're even thinking about reading this book, stop hesitating and read it! I promise you'll love it!!

Caprice Crane's latest book (and first for young adults) is captivating and is a great story from start to finish. After waiting weeks from the sneak preview to be able to read the whole thing, I found it was completely worth the wait. As usual, Ms Crane is able to develop her characters into people you feel you get to know and identify with on a personal level. The feelings and interactions are vivid and real and the book really pulls you in. Aside from being a compelling story which is both funny and sincere, the book has some great messages for teens and their parents alike. My 14 year-old son is entering high school this year and he will be reading this - and I'd recommend it to anyone who has a teenager

Confessions of a Hater is another book I picked up without knowing much about other than it being a contemporary. I have to say, while the synopsis sounds like a fun read, I didn't know how much I'll enjoy it or if the main protagonist will be another shallow one I can't stand. However the progression of the plot line as well as the main protagonist actually having a guilty conscious, made this book very enjoyable and resulted in minimal frustration from such a topic. Hailey Harper has always been in the shadows of her older sister, who is now away at college. Her older sister is the opposite of her, popular, overly pretty, with a great fashion sense. Hailey on the other hand, while not a complete loner, has her small clique of friends but always wished her high school life was more enjoyable and effortless. Little did she know that popularity is reached with a ton of effort and an initiation where you squeeze your heart of any compassion or sympathy for anyone that isn't worth your time (sigh). When Hailey ends up moving with her family, she stumbles upon her sister's journal which is titled "How to Be a Hater" A.K.A popular. That's when Hailey realizes that she has a clean slate with the move and starts following her sister's steps. I understood Hailey's desire to be popular, to feel like she mattered the same way her sister was. It is kind of sad when all you're known for is your sibling, as if that is a big achievement in itself. Even though Hailey became part of the popular group, I loved that she questioned everything they did and that most of it didn't sit well with her. She didn't brush it off and blame their heartless actions on the victims because they asked for it. She ends up switching sides soon in the book and I'm happy for that. I find it painful when protagonists don't have the guts to stand up against the popular students. The plot doesn't end here but we get a ton of laugh out loud scenes when both sides try to prank each other. Something that I really enjoyed reading about. Crane's writing is like a comedy skit. The dialogue between the characters was always full of humor and sarcasm and I loved all the real friends Hailey ended up making. Also, while this is a lighthearted and funny book, there are actual messages in this book that all high schoolers should know. I also loved the intro of each chapter that starts with a popular song title. Confessions of a Hater is a contemporary book that I would definitely recommend to readers, especially ones in need of a humors one.
