I believe that this would have been a good book, if only I didn't hate the main character so much. It's hard to like a character when all they do is complain. And that's exactly what Carrie (the main character) did. After suffering a tragedy, she was feeling blue. But it never seemed to occur to her that other people had lives that were just as worse, or even more awful. Instead, she wallows in self-pity and makes other kids lives misreable because she torments them. I do think she became a bit more likeable in the end, but most of the book was hard to read. I did enjoy all of the lyrics and songs that were mentioned, because it was a nice surprise from what I usually read.
