Sticky Fingers by Niki Burnham
Hey everyone! Today's book is Sticky Fingers by Niki Burnham. The description of this book is:
Bulletproof, that's how Jenna Kassarian sees herself. It's all about control: As long as she works hard, nothing can hurt her. So Jenna constantly pushes — for perfect grades, the ideal boyfriend, the best, best friend.
The only problem is, she doesn't know if she can stop. If she relaxes even for a second, she's afraid she'll lose control completely.
Then Jenna decides it's now or never. She goes to a party and has one drink. But one drink is all it takes for her perfect facade to shatter. Suddenly she realizes straight A's can't protect you in the real world.
I thought this book was really good! This book is a fun high school story (for the most part). It's a story of learning who to trust and knowing what you need to do to reach your goals. I'm not too sure what else to say about this book either, haha. I thought it was really well written, and even though I had some idea of what was going to happen at some point in the book, there definitely was a twist that I didn't see coming. So, if it sounds good to you, go check it out! It's worth a try. Hope you guys enjoy :)
