This is a cliche topic. I didn't like the book at all. The "miss so called good girl" is dumb for sending the picture to Kaleb (her boyfriend at the time). However, the fact that Vonnie messing with his car causes him to send the picture to everyone is even more dumb. I've seen this A THOUSAND times.
Review by Karla Rodriguez, 10th grade

This book is about a teenager named Ashleigh, who got tangled up in a mess.  Once she sent a text, and not just any text, her world flipped upside down.  Going through a break-up, school, torture, court, and community service, Ashleigh trudges through the first semester of school continuously being criticized.  But during community service she meets Mack, a silent and mysterious boy, who she soon turns into her only friend.  By the end of the book, Ashleigh comes out on top [by settling the] unrest with her friends and deciding that a stupid text message [is not] going to ruin her life.

The beginning of the book was very interesting.  I did not enjoy the ending of this book or how Ashleigh gave a pool party for Kaleb.
