I HIGHLY recommend this book you will love it. Its a great coming of age book it teaches you to love yourself and appreciate who you are. I learned from this book that people aren't always what you think they are, they can be deceiving. You will love the suspense that is put into this book. This bbok definitely add up to something big. If you like teen drama and romance, and betrayal this is your book.

Lessons Learned:

I learned in this book that you have to be comfortable with who you are because your peers will sense that I and try to find your weaknesses and destroy you. In life we often think we have to follow a crew to fit in. But in this book it taught me that sometimes the people we hangout with can put us in danger and challenge our morals. In this book I saw how Siobhan made Emma change in drastic ways and Emma was put to the test constantly. To the point where it started to become deadly. People should respect who you are and what you stand for if they don't their friends. Don't be afraid to have your voice heard to be the change in the world and actually make a difference in people's lives.

My Opinion:

I picked This book because Love reading about teenager's life because it teaches us that the world that we live in not always at we think it is. Afterparty encourage me to really interpret people in a different way because people use different emotions and personalities to get through a day and you never really know what a person is going through. Also like books that teach you about how tough this world really is. Where Do you fit in? How did I get my voice heard and when do you people start to appreciate me? Those kind of words allure me to those books, because I like to read about the underdog and how that they grow over time.
