Playing in traffic


Title: playing in traffic
Author: Gail Giles
Publisher: Simon pulse
Pages: 176
So a new way of reviewing borrowed from other bloggers. The synopsis will all be from B&N and I will then put on my review of the book at the end.
Synopsis:
I WAS THE GHOST OF THE SCHOOL CORRIDORS.
SKYE WAS THE DEVIL.
AND I WAS DOOMED FROM THE DAY SHE SPOKE TO ME
Skye Colby? She's the multi-pierced, multi-tattooed girl hanging around the cybercaf├ęs; always out at odd hours in marginal places. The jocks call her "slut puppy," the bland blondes in the plaid miniskirts wrinkle their noses at her, the teachers think she's brilliant, and the counselors call her unstable.
She's all of those things. So why has she singled out Matt Lathrop, an almost invisible nobody, for special attention? Clearly her agenda is dangerous, and clearly Matt should walk away. But how? Skye means mystery; she trails drama in her Goth wake. Skye signals an end to his dreary existence — but at what price?

My opinion:
I thought the book was overall pretty good. It lacked some deepness but then again it was only 176 pages. Maybe it was just me but at first I was like who is the narrator the name on every chapter made me think it was going to be told in more the one viewpoint but I finally got it. I’ve read one of this author’s previous books and she is a really good storyteller. Gives a different meaning to Goth. Overall 3/5
ACT/SAT tip of the day: Get to the test site early, eat breakfast and don't forget your snack. Only for SAT don't forget your TI 89(like i ever leave home without it just kidding i don't think im that much of a dork and um for those who are like what are you talking about the TI 89 is like only the best calculator ever duh!)hehe i have the TI 89 titanium it makes me feel smarter.
