Thank you Goodreads!!

This is the second in the Confessions series - it follows sophomore year of Rose Zarelli's life. If one knows high school, one knows that things don't always get easier. Rose is still dealing with her issues of her father's death and that of the elusive Jaime Forta.
The author has decided to hit on some very hard issues in this book - from hate crime/bullying to drugs, from child abuse to boyfriend/girlfriend abuse. I found the way these issues were brought to surface and worked on very enlightening.
I found Rose's character to start off rather two dimensional but as she grew a depth to her grew (but isn't that what high school girls must do) and I found her to be much more. I liked how she begins to shape herself, find her voice, and even some direction --- even when it leads to a very complicated boy.
Sometimes who we thought we are, isn't at all who we really are or are intended to be.
