You know that catchy song you keep hearing on the radio? It’s about you.
Natalie Jamison has spent five years trying to forget the girl she was in high school: popular, pretty…and, okay, mean. Now in her twenties and living once again in her small town, she’s right back where she was: following Queen Bee Amber and keeping secrets from her best friend, Sarah.
Secrets like Jack Moreland.
Everyone knows Jack Moreland—his new album, Good Enough, is everywhere. He’s famous. Impossibly handsome. Completely untouchable. But what none of Natalie’s old clique knows is that in high school, Natalie and Jack fell in love. And their secret relationship was incredible, painful—and earth-shattering enough to inspire an entire album.
Facing friends and enemies isn’t easy, but Natalie will go to great lengths to prove she is good enough—to her friends, to herself, and most of all, to the small-town boy turned worldwide heartthrob she never forgot.
Ohhh … the perils of being a teenager. In Stephanie Monahan’s The Mean Girl Apoligies, it’s apparent that being a teenager is really tough sometimes. Especially when the things we do and the way we act follow us long after we’ve graduated from high school and are on the way to being an adult. Mean girls are always awful, hence the name, and our heroine, Natalie Jamison is still following the herd of mean girls that she surrounded herself with while in high school years later. These women are everything you’d expect – petty, vindictive, and snobby – and Natalie is torn between still wanting to fit in and being herself. When the boy who stole her heart so many years ago shows up again, well, she has a choice to make. Jack Moreland is a successful musician and when these two cross paths, he’s more than a bit wary of Natalie seeing as how she broke his heart. I liked the way this book moved back and forth between past and present, though I would have liked more present timelines than past. This book was a sweet second chance at love book with some emotional moments thrown in to pull at your heartstrings.
