Little White Lies; Brianna Baker

Little White LiesLittle White Lies by Brianna Baker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm rounding this up because Coretta's voice really does sound like a 17-year-old (at least, it does sound like many of my students). But why the author took this where it ultimately went is beyond me... Karl (the ghostwriter)'s POV swamped Coretta's, and the Skools were just too creepy. Had this stayed with the premise of a black teen's take on sh*t her parents say on a blog that goes viral and requires a ghostwriter, an action that ultimately backfires, it would have been a much stronger book.
