|The book cover|
Parker is perfect at anything except escaping. She couldn't escape her ex-boyfriend, she couldn't escape Becky, the New Kid, the guidance counselor, the principal, well, she can escape her parents, she can't escape school and she most especially can't escape her past. Nobody gets her and her attitude doesn't help, but being a reader is what makes us get her.
Summers is a delicious author, she removes herself from the rules and laws of writing and just creates as if taken out of a 15-year old girl's diary. She makes her readers feel young and whole high school and she can maneuver their minds to a very interested state. She is new, she is fresh, she is great and she is a must-stalk type of author!
In an engrossing read like Cracked Up To Be, Summers captivates her readers into a world of reality high school where escape isn't always where the Exit Sign hangs. With a curious character and a great mix-up of everything "adolescent", Cracked Up To Be makes one heck of an unputdownable debut that will surely, as the word has said, leave you stuck reading 'til the end.
