Grade 9 female athlete Jessie is learning to balance her love of sports and various relationships. When she makes a bad decision at a party, she finds out the effect of viral media on all her relationships - friends, parents, boyfriend, and coaches.
This well-paced and detailed book appeals to the reluctant reader. Canadian venues and language make this book appropriate for newer Canadians as well as solid pleasure reading. The author's straightforward character development and theme exploration would support a fun novel study.
