Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
File this under "what were they thinking?"
Four teens at a party, and the party is broken up by the cops. The kids run, and decide to steal an SUV to escape. And the SUV has a ton of heroin in it. Ad they may have killed a cop with the car as they sped away.
I mean, this is sort of like Very Bad Things, a brutally dark and funny movie from almost 20 years ago, except this isn't funny at all. It's sad and dark and you keep waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel or someone to get what they deserve or any sort of quality resolution, and nothing is coming at all. It's a dire, unfortunate read that just left me wondering what the impetus for this entire exercise was at all. A cool concept, just tough and terrible and weird execution. The writing is good but the entire tone and point were just way off.
Definitely skip this one. There's better out there like it.
