I feel a strong obligation to review this book for you guys because I think the disturbing and slightly terrifying cover is keeping people from reading this fantastic story. Gabi is a larger-than-life teenager who is dealing with difficult obstacles with admirable honesty, aplomb, and wit. Written in a diary format, Gabi’s voice is so hilarious and authentic that Quintero is able to take a quantity of dramatic events that would be melodramatic and soap-operatic in other books and make them both realistic and sympathetic. Even if you have to check it out digitally on OverDrive just to avoid that cover, please get to know Gabi. You won’t be sorry.
