In the tradition of Bridget Jones’s Diary, a lovably flawed high school student chronicles her life as she navigates the highs and lows of family, friendship, school, and love in a diary that sparkles with humor and warmth.
I’m Chloe Winter, and my life is kiiiiind of a disaster.
On the plus side, I got the lead in the musical!
On the down side…
1. I’m a kissing virgin (so so so embarrassing). 2. My best friend, Hannah, is driving me insane. 3. I think I’m in love with Mac Brody, the most popular senior guy, whose girlfriend is so beautiful she doesn’t even need eyeliner. 4. My dad won’t stop asking me if I’m okay. 5. Oh, and my mom moved to Mexico to work on her novel. But it’s fine—she’ll be back soon. She said so.
Mom tells me everything is copy. So I’m writing down all the horrible things that happen to me in this diary.
This is the worst year of my life so far, unless maybe it’s the best.
I loved that this was an epistolary novel. Those are definitely some of my favorites. Especially when they are told by a witty, honest, and humorous girl like Chloe. I had a lot of fun flipping the pages of this book. It’s a book that I would reread.
I also love that this format lets the reader really get to know Chloe on a deep personal level. It lets the reader enter her life and it just felt like it came to life to me. I love how it’s relatable because I, too, was once a teenager. I remember living some of these scenarios that Chloe goes through.
I think that many people would enjoy this book and that it’s for many different people. If you like books like Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty, you would like Confessions of a High School Disaster. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more by Emma Chastain!
