My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Melinda, a nice, average middle-schooler, becomes an outcast just before she begins her first year in high school. Her friends turn against her and think she's become peculiar, her parents are at a loss to explain her failing grades, and her teachers have all--or almost all--given up on her. But Melinda's sudden change of personality, and her equally sudden break with her oldest and best friend, have a very simple, though secret, explanation. Anderson brings the high school experience to life, along with some of the darker aspects of teen relationships. This is a can't-put-it-down book.
