“All right,” she says. “That’s enough. I want you all to remember that Ms. Emerson is not dead. Stop acting like she is. Until I have been notified that she is, indeed, destined for a coffin, I refuse to believe she is. So yes, I will hold her notes and schedule a day for her to make up for her quiz, though I’m sure she’ll blatantly ignore both.”
Life’s a bad writer, my father used to say. I think he meant that most of us would write our lives differently, given the chance. If I could choose one year to rewrite, it’d be my senior year of high school, and I’d probably start with that first shack party.
Or I might go even further and make Sid stay in the valley. I always wondered how it would have worked out if the five of us had stayed together. Who knows, maybe Sid could have been the one to stop me from making such a mess of things.
I was wandering around searching for new German manga on a German publisher’s site, when I bumped into the sequel to this book, not manga, but still something I would enjoy. When I went to amazon I found out there was a prequel, this one. And I just had to have it as this one was out already while the other was a pre-order.
I was hoping I would enjoy this book, and at times I did, but at most times I didn’t. I think it mostly because the topics didn’t match and it was just too much. We got kisses, slut shaming, rivalry, popularity, family drama, death, abuse, depressions, dating a teacher and some other stuff. Normally this all might make a good book, but it felt mostly patched together in this book.
