Review: After seeing countless of reviews, claiming that Cracked Up To Be was pretty amazing, I couldn't help but order this! I wasn't planning on reading this until after I finished my other books, but I couldn't resist it any longer!
Cracked Up To Be is a fast-paced story that will keep you up reading all night. I'm almost at a lost of words for this book. The voice of Parker Fadley is incredible. She used to an A+ student, captain of the cheerleading squad, had a great boyfriend, and was popular. Something happened to Parker that changed her and everyone around her is trying to figure out what went wrong.
I really enjoyed Jake's character, the new kid in school, who tries to figure out Parker. Like she is with everyone, Parker is rude and sarcastic towards him. I liked reading about their partnership with an art project they have to do. All of the characters were nicely done. It was easy to envision each of them as I read.
Courtney Summers does an amazing job writing the flashbacks scenes throughout the book. These scenes are intriguing and you'll want to find out what happened to Parker.
Cracked Up To Be is excellent and such a realistic story! I could not have read a better book to read for the start of 2010!
