I WAS A BITCH(REVIEW) by Emily Ruben
At first I was reading this and I thought “WHAT A GREAT STORY” this was gonna be . I loved how it started off. Lacey was in a coma for 2 months woke up with a 2 year memory loss. I felt like this was going to be great, trying to figure out all the secrets from her friends, family and boyfriend. I myself had monkey’s jumping up and down when her “friend” Finn was around. As her memory was giving her hints to the life she had before the accident I was on the edge of my seat. 60% of the book was read and that’s when I realized the secrets weren’t as great as I hoped it would be. Surprise!!!!!!!! It was basic High School Drama.. Derek (her actual boyfriend) was a big self absorbed football jerk, her best friend Melissa was sleeping with the big jerk behind her back. And Lacey and her friends were the biggest Queen Bitches at school. (not really the greatest secrets). Lacey ended up staying with Derek for a scholarship to NYU. Really?! That was a bitch move???…I am still questioning it. FINN actually was the one Lacey was in love with. Ummm Duh!!!! He was perfect.
I think the concept of the book has potential, but the secrets weren’t as good as I would of hoped. Maybe if Melissa ended up pregnant or Derek did something alittle more horrible then drinking and drugging her. Not say drugging Lacey wasn’t bad enough but her almost being pregnant and him worrying about football wasn’t a great secret. Maybe her finding him doing something as awfully incriminating like walking in on a rape or something REALLY horrible.
The writing was really good a few spelling corrections but otherwise, I like the writing. I just didn’t really like the last 25% of the book. Definitely not the ending I was hoping for. I will have to try to find another one of Ms Rubens other stories. Maybe something with a better ending
