Stalker Girl- Rosemary Graham

I'm sorry it has been so long since I have posted a review, but I am posting a few reviews tonight.

It's back to school time, I hope everybody has a wonderful start to school whenever y'all go back!

I can't wait until tomorrow! Mockingjay comes out, FINALLY! I'll also be posting some hints about the contest in one of the posts tonight!

Rating (1-5): 2
Cover rating: 4

Description: Carly never meant to become a stalker. She just wanted to find out who Brian started dating after he dumped her. But a little harmless online research turns into a quick glance, and that turns into an afternoon of watching. Soon Carly is putting all of her energy into following Brian's new girlfriend-all of the sadness she feels about her mom's recent breakup, all of the anger she feels over being pushed aside by her dad while he prepares for his wife's new baby. When Carly's stalking is discovered in the worst possible way by the worst possible person, she is forced to acknowledge her problem and the underlying issues that led to it.

Well, I was kind of excited to read this book. I thought the plot sounded very interesting, but I was disappointed. Now, that's not to say it is a bad book. This book is just not for me.

I kept getting confused with the writing. I found it...jumpy. It was a little hard for me to keep up and after the first few glimpse of the new girlfriend, I already felt Carly was going too far. I can sort of understand wanting to see someone you've never met before. Someone who has replaced you, but I don't think I would ever actually go out of my way to see someone.

I did like that this plot is original. The plot was very interesting, I just think it could have been carried out better. If you're looking for something new to read, I'd suggest going to you're library and checking it out. It wouldn't hurt to form your own opinion of it.
