**Warning: This book covers a controversial topic.** I cannot put this book down; it's so great & it's also incredibly relevant to middle school in 2015. After Lara is publicly humiliated on Facebook by Christian, a boy who she thought really liked her, things spiral out of control. Lara's former best friend makes things worse by posting embarrassing pictures of Lara to Facebook, where other "friends" post further putting Lara down. The thing that makes this book so chilling is that it's a fiction but it's extremely realistic. The extreme bullying that takes place in this book is not an exaggeration, this kind of stuff happens everyday on online and so many don't consider the real consequences. Some people never truly think about the effects that their "jokes" actually have on the person on the other end.
