I love strong female characters. I especially love unique, strong, teenage female characters. It’s hard enough to be a teenager. More so if you’re female and march to the beat of your own drum.
Gabriella lives in a funeral home. It’s all she’s ever known. So of course she’s heard all the jokes and whispers at school. Bothered her at first, but now she’s used to it. She has her own (very little) group of friends to go along with her strange family.
As all teenage things are destined to do, though, her comfortable life comes to an end. When her forever best friend falls for one of her biggest tormentors, Gabriella finds herself lost. Luckily there’s a new kid at school, and he’s almost as strange as Gabriella. Hartman seems to want more than friendship and she’s not sure she’s ready for that. Along the way, her friendship with Bree is tested in ways she never imagined.
This was such a fun story to read. The cast of characters that comes from living in a funeral home is just as you would imagine it to be. Gabe is funny and charming, and her parents are just as much so. One of my favorites of last year!
