Some Girls Are

Some Girls Are - Courtney Summers Once I got about a fourth of the way in, I could not put this book down. I worked an 8 hour shift today and I stayed up until 3am reading this last night. It's terrifying, beautiful, and real.We start off with Regina Afton, miss popular, who is apart of the Fearsome Fivesome. Until she is accused by her supposed best friend, Anna, that she cheated with her boyfriend. Regina is "frozen out" of the group, and starts taking serious hits of embarrassment and harassment from the "popular" group. Having no one to turn to, she finds herself starting to befriend a boy who, she herself, tortured. Michael Hayden. Realizing, that she herself was a monster... but once a monster always a monster? Or can things change?I really, really enjoyed this one! I flew through the pages. This book is crazy true. Things like this really happen in school; All the time. People get bullied, they get abused, and no one does anything about it. They just let it happen, and it's horrible! It truly breaks your heart.Honestly, I don't know how Regina kept going after everything that was done to her. She was one extremely strong character, that I kind of felt myself admiring. I would have most likely just given up in her shoes. Of course I would have tried something at first, but after continuous bullying, I would have failed. My favorite character was Michael of course. Gorgeous, tragic past, sentimental, emo boy.
