Regan Flay has been talking about you.
Regan Flay is on the cusp of achieving her control-freak mother's "plan" for high school success? cheerleading, student council, the Honor Society--until her life gets turned horribly, horribly upside down. Every bitchy text. Every bitchy email. Every lie, manipulation, and insult she's ever said have been printed out and taped to all the lockers in school.
Now Regan has gone from popular princess to total pariah.
The only person who even speaks to her is her former best friend's hot but socially miscreant brother, Nolan Letner. Nolan thinks he knows what Regan's going through, but what nobody knows is that Regan isn't really Little Miss Perfect. In fact, she's barely holding it together under her mom's pressure. But the consequences of Regan's fall from grace are only just beginning. Once the chain reaction starts, no one will remain untouched...
Especially Regan Flay.
Life Unaware by Cole Gibsen is a young adult story that focuses on a common teen problem: bullying (especially cyber-bullying). Regan is the daughter of a congress woman. She has spent years carefully cultivating her sweet All-American girl reputation. She is a cheerleader, she’s running for student council, and she’s on track to head to an Ivy League college. But suddenly, Regan’s world is turned upside down. Every mean text, nasty private message and snarky email has been revealed. Someone printed all of these out and plastered them all over the school. Everyone now knows every thing Regan has said about them.
This was a story that really drew me in. Even knowing that Regan is a ‘mean girl’ at the beginning, I still liked her. She has anxiety issues that she keeps as secret as possible. I think that this story felt realistic in a lot of aspects. I enjoyed the read and felt the author did a nice job telling a story that dealt with sensitive issues.
