Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some confessions to make…

1. I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?

2. I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who might be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.

3. High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry—get it?)

Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.

(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.)

(Sorry. That was rude.)

Rose Zarelli has big plans for sophomore year—everything is going to be different. This year, she’s going to be the talented singer with the killer voice, the fabulous girl with the fashionista best friend, the brainiac who refuses to let Jamie Forta jerk her around...

...but if she’s not careful, she’s also going to be the sister who misses the signals, the daughter who can only think about her own pain, the “good girl” who finds herself in mid-scandal again (because no good deed goes unpunished) and possibly worst of all...the almost-girlfriend.

When all else fails, stop looking for love and go find yourself.

Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend follows up to its predecessor, Confessions of an Angry Girl, very easily. It clearly explains the story at the beginning of the book for readers to understand what has already happened so it is easy for the reader to catch on if they don't quite remember what went on in Angry Girl or hasn't had the chance to read it yet. Rose is in the midst of reinventing herself to become a newer, better, perfect version to the her from a year ago, but who says it'd be easy?

What I really love about Rose is exactly what I love about many other female protagonists such as Janelle from Unraveling or Alex from Ashes; her realistic mind. She, while having her own personal baggage and issues, her mind didn't try to disguise those problems as something like a "phase". She sees things as-is, and made realistic observations which really let myself as a reader understand her environment and g
