Blurb/Synopsis:
I’ve been a b****. I know this. It’s not something that I’m particularly proud of and it’s not something that I had intended to stop being. At least, I hadn’t until recently. I got what older people call “a taste of my own medicine.” I don’t think I deserved that taste. I have lived through a disgustingly dirty sea of pain and horror. I wanted others to feel that pain, know that fear. People would understand better if they knew my story. Sable probably wouldn’t care after everything that I did to her, everything I put her through. I wish I would’ve had the courage to let her know what was going on, instead of being the coward I was and giving her a glimpse of my pain. 

I am Jenna Nielson Turner. I am the daughter of an abusive, alcoholic mother and the product of a sexual assault or so I’m told. If that wasn’t enough, add to it one of the members of the faculty here at Boardan High School believes I am to be his personal love slave until I graduate. So, yeah, I’m a b****, but I have some pretty good reasons to be. Being that person helps me cope with the hell that is my world, not just my d*** life. 

Is it possible for one that has this as the introduction to their "Who am I?" essay to be open to love and be loved? Will she be able to except what is necessary for her to change? Or will she allow the surprises that come into her pathway to be the needed excuse to be just who she describes?

REVIEW
-----
This book picks up where Sable's story, from Singling Out Sable (Boardan High Series Book 1), leaves off. If you haven't read the first one, I highly suggest that you do. In Sable's story, Jenna is absolutely the "bad" guy. But this isn't Sable's story anymore. This is Jenna's and she has a lot to say. For starters, why do bullies bully? Did anyone bother trying to see past all of Jenna's acting out or mean girl antics? No. Well now it's time to find out why Jenna does what she does and you won't expect what her life is hiding.
This isn't a daisy and roses and butterflies kind of story. It's got a raw core that isn't a laughing matter. To me this isn't right for younger teens (13-15 years old) as the basis of Jenna's story is very adult. The situations are adult situations that no teen, child, or young adult should have to go through let alone live on a daily basis. This book is a dose of reality that unfortunately too many have to face as their reality. So get your tissue box ready because there will be moments that you'll need it.
