Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some confessions to make…1. I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?

2. I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who might be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.

3. High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry—get it?)

Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.

(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.)

(Sorry. That was rude.)

I'm not sure about the title, but I really enjoyed this one! She isn't as angry as I thought she'd be. That's okay because the story works anyway. Rose is a good, well-developed MC in this novel. She has a LOT of drama going on, that's for sure!

So, I was a tad creeped out by the middle of this one that Rose is only 14 and Jamie is "supposed to be a senior" or something. Rose seemed older sometimes, and at others it was pretty obvious that she was young. I also didn't care for all the "Is he my boyfriend?" crap. I don't like it when people are so clueless and don't find things out for themselves. Again, I know she's young, but it's still irritating.. oh well.

Lots of rage and high school drama in here. Regina makes me want to punch things. I hate bullies! I can't say more without spoiling things. Yeah. Grrr.

Okay, so I sound like I hated this book right now.. but honestly, if I didn't have strong feelings about it, then I wouldn't have liked it as much, right? I read the whole thing in two sittings, so I was pretty into it. I felt for Rose. A LOT. I am patiently waiting for the sequel! Sounds interesting :o)

Bottom line: Totally check this one out!
