Really Heavy

Typically I'm not a fan of Lauren Myracle, because her books tend to be kind of girly and contain numerous failed attempts at pop culture references. This book, however, is excellent. It's compelling and well written. It's hard to put this book down. I like Cat because I feel that she is a strong female lead, who will stop at nothing to find out who hurt her friend. But this book is really depressing. Every character has some sort of sad or bad thing that has happened or is happening to them. Some parts are hard to read. I would recommend this for a mature person looking for a serious but very interesting read.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
