Con­fes­sions of a High School Disaster, by Emma Chas­tain

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Empowering Books For Teens -

A di­ary-style con­tem­po­rary tale made crazy binge­able by way of its Austen-level ob­ser­va­tional wit, Con­fes­sions of a High School Disaster is the fun­ni­est, most painfully real high school story you’ll read this year. Over the course of 365 di­ary en­tries cov­er­ing her fresh­man year, Chloe Snow has high highs—school play star­dom! Flir­ta­tion with a sexy up­per­class­man!—and low lows—BFF awk­ward­ness, sort of ac­ci­den­tally try­ing to steal the coolest girl in school’s boyfriend—all un­der the shadow of miss­ing her mom, who has jet­ted off to Mex­ico to fi­nally fin­ish her novel. Chloe is a hi­lar­i­ously sharp, ridicu­lously re­lat­able teen, who grows up a lit­tle bit (but not too much) dur­ing a year of disasters both comic and heart-tug­ging. I’ve al­ready read her di­ary twice.
