The Queen of Bright and Shiny things by Ann Aguirre
Review: Okay, it only took me a little while to get into this book. Only because I have been crazy busy and never go a minute to read two pages in one sitting for the first half of this book.
Sage the main character was so cool and sweet! She made me feel a little bad about how not good and caring I am. I also wished I was back in high school too. So that I could do the Sage hot pink sticky note thing to everyone’s locker. I will now have to make my younger sister do it when she gets to high school. But in the mean time I am now going out and buying pink sticky notes, because they rock!
The other people in Sages group were also cool, just not as much as Sage. She is the Bomb. I wish there were more nice and caring people like her around to show us all up.
Sages hard past was sad to read along with some of the people in her group too. But I was happy to see that Sage and Shane were able to lean on each other to get through their tough times. I’m hopeful that the future is bright for them both.
Overall the book was very touching and sweet, covered in hot pick sticky notes.
4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won’t peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She’s learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it’s working just fine… until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He’s a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted.
Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He’s got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn’t expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage.
But love doesn’t mend all broken things, and sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together again…
