*I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review*
After reading Emily's brave and beautifully honest review of this book I really wanted to read it. Where she spoke about how much she related to Elise because she was like Elise, I’d like to speak from the opposite end of the spectrum because...

So, fun fact: this is the first book I ever read with a character named Elise who wasn't an Archetypal Mean Girl. And oddly enough, this Elise is one of the most relatable characters I've ever read about. She's so much like me, like any of us who didn't grow up popular, that it's almost terrifyin...

A well-written, enjoyable read but in the end I think I favored the premise of this story over what actually played out.
Sixteen year old Elise wants one thing: to become popular and morph into anyone who doesn’t resemble herself. After undergoing a summer of “coolness” self-training, El...

I’ve written a lot of difficult reviews over the past year, but there has never come a point where I planned to just give up and screw the review because I just couldn’t do it. And then, of course, I read Leila Sales This Song Will Save Your Life and it punched me right in the feels and brought b...
