A Perfect Disaster

Author: Amanda Maciel
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: January 1, 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Boys have always liked Rosie Fuller, and she has always liked them back. Which is how she has developed a reputation as being the most beautiful - but also easy - girl in her small town in Tornado Valley. Now at the start of her senior year, her best friends Madelyn and Ryan are acting more judgmental of her 'easy' ways. Rosie doesn't let it get to her, though - she's just having a good time.

Then Alex, the cousin of her most recent fling, moves to town. Last year Alex earned hero status by stopping one of his classmates from carrying out a shooting rampage at his old high school. Rosie is immediately drawn to Alex - in a way she's never experienced for a boy before - and he has no pre-conceived notions about her and for once a boy is treating her with respect.

Things are looking brighter . . . until a party turns disastrous in more ways than one, throwing her life into a tailspin. Forced to face uncomfortable truths about herself and high school culture, Rosie is set on a journey to discover the type of person she is - and who she wants to be.

Amanda Maciel, the author of the acclaimed Tease, unflinchingly explores ideas of beauty and reputation, as well as issues of slut-shaming and homophobia, in this story of a teen girl learning to truly see herself and her world.


Why I'm Excited:
Tease was unbelievably good. I'm so very,  very excited for this one. I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

  6. Yeesh. I don't know about this one. Something tells me there'll be a lot of slut-shaming to be had.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
