New York : HarperTeen, 2010
not sure how it came to this. You used to be a good student, a good person.
You had decent friends. You actually cared about things, about life. Now
… well, “slacker” is being kind. What people actually call you and your
friends (if that’s what you can even call them) is “hoodies.” No one expects
anything much from a hoodie. You know, wearing all black, sitting in the
back of class; never contributing anything but trouble. You don’t even
expect much from yourself anymore. What kind of life is this anyway? Even
you know it’s pathetic. So you’ve become intrigued by the new guy
at school. He’s different; he seems to have power over people.
Sure, in a conniving, sneaky sort of way, but still … there’s something there that lures you into his trap. Now, every bad decision you’ve made, your pathetic lack of initiative, and the mediocrity you’ve encompassed will come crashing down. All because of You. – Cara Woudenberg (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
