Whatever

cover art

I wasn’t thrilled about the title or cover this book so I was skeptical about the quality when I started it. As it turns out there was more to the story than first appearances may have revealed. Being stressed about her brother’s illness and the impact that it has had on her life (including a lack of attention from her parents) Darrah makes an irresponsible mistake and must suffer the consequences of community service. She makes a friend and learns she has hidden talent. This is a sweet feel-good book about redemption and priorities. I’m not entirely sure I find the dialogue convincing, I feel like “whatever” is what adults hear as teen lingo but not really the way most teens actually communicate.
