**I was provided an advance readers copy for reviewing purposes**
Grady Hendrix really captured what high school feels like, creating a visceral connection with his main character Abby and her best friend Gretchen. I found my heart beating faster when they found themselves in tight situations. Definitely caused feelings of frustrated, suspense and at times even disgust in all the right places. I could picture exactly what it must have been like for my mother to be in high school in the 80's.
