This review is from: Dramarama (Hardcover)
I love all of E. Lockhart's books, and this one didn't disappoint at all. Sayde is a terrific narrator - every bit as smart and funny as Ruby (The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book) - and she's surrounded by a wonderful cast. I admit that I did spend a summer at drama camp, so that might be part of why I loved it so much, but that's by no means a requirement. The relationships Sayde has with her gay best friend, her roommates, a boy who may or may not like her -- they're all exceedingly believable and filled with both fondness and more difficult emotions. Her discovery that she's not outrageously talented, as her friends are, and the jealousy that she experiences struck me as being especially relatable. Funny, warm (and snarky!), mostly unpredictable. I pretty much guarantee you'll enjoy this book, especially if you've liked Lockhart's others.
