Are You Still There

Are You Still There - Sarah Lynn Scheerger Yesyesyesyesyes thank you netgalley thank you thank you thank you!!! *overly excited*

I received a copy of this book from Netgally in exchange of an honest review.

This book started off really good with the protagonist being caught in the bathroom stall peeing her pants out of fear. I just wish the level of action from the beginning of the book had been just as high throughout the rest. The middle of the book was pretty boring and just about normal high school drama; boys, friends, family etc. Excuse me, there's been a bomb threat to your school, could we adjust our focus, please?

I really liked the relationship between Gabi and Chloe. I liked how they could be best friends one moment and the next they hated each other. It felt very true. I wasn't too big of a fan of Eric and Miguel though, and the romance felt flat to me. I just didn't feel anything. Janae was a really good character though, and I also liked that her parents was a big part of the book (but what happened to the mom in the end? Why didn't we get an explanation?).

Overall, this was an okay book, I just wish there would've been more action and focus on the bomb thing instead of the teenage drama.
