Almost a SeniorAlmost a Senior by Brenda Faye Collie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Do you find the characters convincing? The characters are definitely convincing but the writing could have been a lot better. The dialogue was very stunted and not how teenagers speak. Some of the text was also a bit crude and I am not sure if this was intentional or bits missed during editing.
How would the book have been different if it had taken place in a different time or place? There is no mention of social media in the book so readers can assume that this book is centred on a character that exised long before the Internet played a central part in our lives. This was definitely a different experience and refreshing read in this sense.
What I liked. Loresha is a realitic main character. She makes many different decisions throughout the book and not all of it are good ones. However, the reader is able to connect with her and understand these decisions without thinking too badly of her.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
