That Freak Kid by Samantha Stemler

An honest and real re-telling of the adolescent struggle: blindly trying to understand the world, the people in it, our own place in it and ourselves whilst still trying to make as few insane, idiotic decisions as possible. This coming-of-age tale spliced with a tumultuous romance is told for young adults by a young adult, written during and inspired by the author's own high school saga.
Amy Stevens is a high school freshman in a rough spot; she's not pretty, she's not smart and she's got no friends, none that can stand her, at least. Amy knows she has to make a change, or else get eaten alive in the new pecking order. She finds herself crossing the lines of groups and conformity, eventually coming face-to-face with the Goth king himself; Jack Holly. But the tall, black-clad boy and his friends that once terrified her are not what she once thought. Something has changed. Maybe everything.

I was a little leery about buying this because im one of those people that judge a potential book by its rating and customer reviews. However i was intreaged by the cover because i am an avid lover of goth boys and the goth style so i decided to give it a shot anyway since it was only a dollar and i am so glad i did. I immediatly fell in love with Jack and Amy. They were written very well and i loved the surrounding characters. I can see myself reading this book again in the future. My favorite thing about the story was how Jack never changed his style. A lot of goth stories are about how they change in the end or makes the character sound really immature about being goth that it becomes annoying, but Jack wasnt making an adolecet statment. He just liked the style even if he was immature about other things. Couple of things that could have been improved upon was a little too muc drama, but i understand its high school and every event is gonna seem like the end of the world. Also the way it was put together seemed like a bunch of short stories slapped together. Over all i really enjoyed the book and hope the author makes some more stories about goth boys.
