EscapeSix eighth graders four girls and two boys struggle to understand and process their fractured glimples into one another's lives as they find new ways to disconnect but also to connect in Rachel Vail's richest and most searching boo. This review has also been posted on The Social Potato I love middle grade but I think we can safely say that middle grade novels focusing on middle school drama are not really my thing although never say never I went into this book kind of expecting a Mean Girls story but that wasn t exactly what I got The book is about a girl who dumps her friend for the popular crowd and the popular crowd doesn t turn out to be bad Her best friend howeverI could get behind this I could but Truly s who is the main characters ex best friend is part of that popular crowd her ex best friend who dumped her two years ago Do you see where I am getting with this It s a cycle that never endssss okay I don t really know thatMy problem on top of everything else was that the writing didn t do it for me The book was definitely geared towards middle schoolers and I didn t click with the voices of all the characters I also felt like the writing was too tell y as opposed to show y We were constantly being TOLD things rather than shown and I was like nopeBut does that mean this book was bad I personally think of it as a case of me not being the right audience for it I think that for middle schoolers this is a great book It is realistic in its portrayal of the complications of growing up It deals with cyberbullying it deals with ALL the things that middle schoolers these days will be able to relate to I am no longer in middle school though it s been a LONG time so I guess this book and I just weren t meant to be Note that I received a finished copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

In middle school nothing is important than friendshipWhen Truly is invited to sit at the Popular Table with the group she has dreamed of joining she can hardly believe her luck Everyone seems so nice so kind to one another But all is no. Unfriended is a modern day novel by Rachel Vail that teaches teenagers how social media can give you freedom as well as cause you harm when used inappropriatelyIn this novel eigth grader Truly Gabriella Gonzales learns the hard say that sometimes the Popular choice may not be the best choice When her ex bff Natasha who dumped her in grade six comes to invite her to sit at the Popular Table and hang out with them Truly is overly thrilled and excited and follows dumping her uirky bff Hazel who was the one that befriended her when Natasha dumped her without thinking of the possible misunderstandings between them Hazel hurt and feeling betrayed retaliates using social media hacking into Truly s accounts posing and posting as her Meanwhile Truly starts warming up to all of them from the Perfect Brooke to the Super Chill Clay but is anyone really who they seem Natasha gets kicked out of the Popular Table and blames Truly adding on to the online hate It soon becomes out of control and crazy with rumors lies and secrets go viral while nobody has the full truthEven when people start easing up on Truly and the whole situation she begins to become and reclused and cuts school as well as throwing her cell phone into the big lake The damage was already done Hazel apologizes in the end but is it enough We don t know if their friendship will ever be the same again This book ends on the start of their History Day project which was what Truly was invited to the Table for to work on the History Day projectOverall I found this book really interesting because of the style alternating straight point of views with a few text messages a to do list and even a social media post It was also interesting since the title on the cover was smaller than the author s name It kind of represented how nobody wanted to be unfriended by someone on social media or in real life It s also like a last resort when people want to get away from someone onlineThe ending was also okay I guess It was a pretty major cliffhanger after all and we don t know what will exactly happen next

    SMALL SPOILER ALERTThis book is really good Seriously I literally could not put it down until I'd finished reading it which isn't a good thing because I have homeworkbut that's how good the book was It wasn't five stars only because five stars is a nearly impossible rating for a book to get from me and even I don't know why I connected in some way with every single main character except for Natasha who understa
