Title: Here Lies Bridget
Authour: Paige Harrison
Published: January 2011
Bridget Duke is the uncontested ruler of her school. The meanest girl with the biggest secret insecurities. And when new girl Anna Judge arrives, things start to fall apart for Bridget: friends don't worship as attentively, teachers don't fall for her wide-eyed "who me?" look, expulsion looms ahead and the one boy she's always loved--Liam Ward--can barely even look at her anymore.
When a desperate Bridget drives too fast and crashes her car, she ends up in limbo, facing everyone she's wronged and walking a few uncomfortable miles in their shoes. Now she has only one chance to make a last impression. Though she might end up dead, she has one last shot at redemption and the chance to right the wrongs she's inflicted on the people who mean the most to her.
And Bridget's about to learn that, sometimes, saying you're sorry just isn't enough....
Ok, this review will be short and sweet. To start with I haven't finished the book, I know, I know! I love the authors writing and can not fault the premise of the book but oh my gosh I can't stand Bridget! It grates on me to think people in the real world are actually like that!! I can't help but feel the author wants readers to dislike Bridget!
I kept putting this book down and picking it and then putting it back down. At the moment it is down and even though I'm not liking Bridget I find myself wanting to find out how she changes and I have read other reviews that say the book gets better as it goes along.
I think for now this book is going to stay
As I said I love the authors writing and I'm more than happy to read more by her in the future.
