Rating: 3.5/5

This book follows a girl named Chloe Snow and all of her crazy drama written in her diary. Chloe thinks she really has it rough compared to other kids in her school. She thinks that her life is a mess because her crush is not being loyal to her and that her mom moved to Mexico to work on her book. This makes Chloe feel like she has no one who really truly cares about her. She is consumed by drama and heartbreak that leads to a bad path. The one thing that’s making Chloe go on is acting and putting her heart on that school auditorium. Her mother tells her to write in a diary everyday to explain the pain of being a freshman.

I personally was not this book’s biggest fan mostly because I don’t really love drama filled books, but I understand that a lot of people do. Something I did like about this book is that it covers some topics that haven’t been talked about in  books very often. I really liked how the emotion from the characters really affected me as a reader. When Chloe was sad so was I, which has its ups and downs. Overall this book was a good read and I would recommend it to people if I knew that they liked this genre and topics.
