Review: Here Lies Bridget
Author: Paige Harbison
From GoodReads, "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…."
This is one of those books that when you finish it you say to yourself, “I didn’t see that coming!” At first I was thinking, this is just another story about a bratty teenage girl. I was so wrong! Trust me when I say….read to the end and you won’t be sorry! I definitely had that smile and feel good feeling at the end. Paige Harbison did a great job of writing the main character, Bridget Duke. Bridget was so annoying, bratty, and a total snot! But…..can you change a teenager like this? I will say yes, but I will not tell you how! All I can say is I loved the book and totally recommend to anyone, especially a bratty teenager! HaHa I look forward to reading Paige Harbison next book.
