This isn't a typical YA novel. It's like splashing cold water on the face. Plus, it's a book about a book! It's kind of a roller coaster ride--I laughed, I cried!

From the publisher:
Didn’t you ever just simply want to…stop?

Star athlete and straight-A student Nanette O’Hare has played the role of dutiful daughter for as long as she can remember. But one day, a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper—a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic—and the rebel within Nanette awakens.

As the new and outspoken Nanette attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, she befriends the reclusive author and falls in love with a young, troubled poet. Forced to make some hard choices that bring devastating consequences, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion can sometimes come at a high price.

I loved his other book (silver linings) immensely - laugh out loud and much better than the movie! I'll look for this one.
