Review: I Was A Bitch

I Was A Bitch I Was A Bitch by Emily Ruben
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Show Stopper!

A young adult novel that caught me by the collar.

I've always been an admirer of thick books. Being lost in them for hours and hours on a Sunday. This functioned perfectly well for me.

Story gets you to the action scene where Lacey, the protagonist is lying on the hospital bed and being informed that she has come out of coma after two months. More to that, she has lost her memory of 2 years. When inquired what her age is, she is only able to remember the things she did 2 years back. Quite thrilling, isn't it?

There's more. Unknown people keep coming in her room and informing her that we are related to you. As Lacey gets confused, you also have no options but to bear with her memory loss effects. Because since you knew the situation with Lacey, you are stuck with her story. This is the trick, the author does to you.

Lacey is confused with two angel-looking boys. Derek and Finn. We get to know that Derek is Lacey's boyfriend. Her family is supportive to her. They think of Derek like their family member. And there's Finn, with whom Lacey feels a connection but Lacey's parents don't know who this guy is. She can't decide whom to choose.

What's her real personality?

The plot of this book is commendable. I liked the titles of each chapter. How a teenager's life is like, the author has described it very well. It was fun and humorous most of the times. Seeing the protagonist in the dilemma was a treat but at the same time, you sympathize with her condition.

Emily Ruben has written a fantastically engaging novel. She had be caught up with the issues between Lacey, Derek and Finn. With a lot of mystery and drama, I have surely enjoyed her work to the fullest. I can't wait to read more books by the author.

Verdict : Recommended for Young Adult readers!
