4 out of 5
Meet Elise. She doesn’t want to be popular.  She just wants some friends.  The more she tries, the more she fails.  I believe this book may just save some lives. It provides the lesson that you only need to find your own passion and you find yourself, therefore friends that share your passion. It’s a coming-of-age story about unpopularity – to downright mean peers.  The author has the special talent of making the reader want to be friends with Elise themselves. Not everyone will connect with her feelings, but if you ever felt lost in your teens years this is a must read.  If music is your thing, I also recommend Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and Beautiful Music for   Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills.
