 This is a Young Adult pick for those readers that love your less-than-typical leading lady, kicking butt and taking numbers all in the name of love, for friends and those that could have been more.  There's the usual journey of learning to show others your true self regardless of what they might think.  There's young love despite the fact that's it's hidden in more ways than one and by more PEOPLE than two.  There's jealousy and reputation.  There's rumors heard through the grapevine and the die hard search to cut through all the bull**** in order to get to the TRUTH of the matter not simply for truth's sake but also so the heart can settle.  It's a labyrinth of feelings and emotions strewn across a familiar landscape made disconcerting by the mysteries  running round like kids on a sugar rush.  It all blends together into a story that's much bigger and better than you would ever first guess, and lives up to the buzz that's been building here of late.  Though I had my gut feelings about who did what, the story was never transparent to where the journey to reach the certain end felt unnecessary.  Definitely an author to watch. **review copy was received in exchange for my honest review...full post can be seen on my site**
