Confessions of an Almost Girlfriend - Review

Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend (Confessions #2)

by
Rose Zarelli has big plans for sophomore year—everything is going to be different. This year, she’s going to be the talented singer with the killer voice, the fabulous girl with the fashionista best friend, the brainiac who refuses to let Jamie Forta jerk her around...

...but if she’s not careful, she’s also going to be the sister who misses the signals, the daughter who can only think about her own pain, the “good girl” who finds herself in mid-scandal again (because no good deed goes unpunished) and possibly worst of all...the almost-girlfriend.

When all else fails, stop looking for love and go find yourself.

My Review...

First off! Let me just say that I think Louise is a genius when it comes to teen angst and coming into your own. With this book and the last, I think she has captured the pure essence of growing up and the drama of friends, family and relationships.

Now let's start with Rose for some reason she keeps getting herself in the middle of everything.
It starts to take a toll on her.
For her she is just trying to fit in without truly knowing herself. Now let's add Regina the school bitch
But we start to find out more about Regina this time and realize there is a reason for her being the way she is. Which only confuses the matter for Rose.  Now lets add Jamie back into the mix.
But Jamie is just as confused as Rose is but he might even be more unaware of it than she is.  He doesn't show too much emotion but he does show his stubborn and protective sides with Regina and Conrad.  He shows Rose this side by pushing her away. 
Now if this isn't enough try having your BFF and brother get together.
As much as near the end was frustrating it was also reality. There are so many possibilities still to come and also the art of communication if Jamie will put down his walls and let Rose in or at least just listen to her instead of ALWAYS jumping to conclusions on his own.
But in the end, it's about Rose and the growth of her and finally starting to find her OWN identity in a big world of bullshit called reality.


4.5 teenage angst ridden thumbs up!
