About the Book:

A note from Jade Leighton's journal Years ago, a tragic accident robbed me of my mother and emotions. Because I find beauty in darkness and thrive outside social norms, I've been labeled a "freak" at school. I know my continued apathy hurts my loved ones, but I'm not about to change. Nothing will ever hurt me again.Then I wake up in an alternate reality...and everything else has changed. Goth is in. I'm considered cool, and my archenemy--the formerly popular Mercedes--is the freak. But my real friends won't talk to me...and the new boy is getting under my skin. As my world spins out of control, I'm desperate to return to normal. But the more time that passes, the less I'm sure what "normal" really is.


This title will be released on September 4, 2018.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well when I started this one I thought I was going to hit it right off and it was going to be the love of my life this year. But sadly here I am writing a DNF failed read review for it. I am very sad right now. 

Do I Recommend this book? Not really 

Notes and Opinions: When I picked this one up I was so excited man! I love Showalter and I really wanted to love this one. I mean look at that premise it looks SO GOOD!!! It's all about showing that everyone is human no matter what they are going through and that really just sounded perfect for me right now. But this one had some major issues.  

Right when this one started I knew I was going to have issues.  The main character Jade starts contradicting herself right off the bat and that was pretty annoying. She gives us some snips from her journal at the start of each chapter and those were great but just didn't work out for the story at large.  I really ended up not liking Jade for what I read. She compalins about everything and wasn't really doing anything to change that. It made her a very irritating character to read about.  

When I read about different people I want to care if they fall of a cliff or you know get murdered or blown up and this about half way through the book I just didn't care at all. In the end I wanted to fall for Jade and her situation etc but it just wasnt happening.
