Confessions of an Angry Girl (Confessions #1)
Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some confessions to make
1. I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?
2. I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who might be dating a cheerleader. She is nowenraged and out for blood. Mine.
3. High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry—get it?)
Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.
(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.)
(Sorry. That was rude.)

Confessions Of An Angry Girl is addictive and unputdownable but leaves a nasty aftertaste.
First of all I find the title a little misleading. I didn't think Rose was angry for the majority of the book. She was rude and snarky YES but not angry in my opinion. Just saw the definition of anger
Having a strong feeling of or showing annoyance, displeasure, or hostility; full of anger.
Well, Rose was experiencing these emotions so she was an angry girl. I guess I just associate anger with violence and lots of screaming at people at all times and Rose did those things but not for the majority of the novel.
I liked Rose. She was snarky and sarcastic and I just liked being in her head. I loved the fact that she was a wordsmith and how every chapter starts with a new word and then she relates it to her situation.[I know WORD NERD ALERT is going through your head right now! I know :P]These are the best parts of this story and if I read the sequel it will be because of this.
What I didn't like was Rose's obsession with Jamie. WHAT is so great about this guy? I thought he was a jerk.
Rose is also pretty mean to her friends. Especially a guy who has a crush on her.
You don't like him but you don't let him off the hook either and you're obsessed with a guy who you haven't had a conversation with?
I was really frustrated with Rose in loads of specific situations.Her friendship with Tracy is also weird.
The weirdest part is the fact that I couldn't stop reading this book. I guess I expected Rose to rise above and come to her senses or maybe the fact that Rose was a trainwreck was weirdly fascinating for me and thus I couldn't put it down. I give props to the author for keeping me hooked though.
Overall, I might read the sequel but I'm not going to be dying to read it. Rose is an interesting character that fascinates and irritates me at the same time.
