Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers

Parker Fadley used to be perfect. She was an excellent student, head of the cheerleading squad and had the perfect boyfriend. But then one night changed everything. Now she couldn't care less about anything in her life, and nobody can help her except herself. But her guilt stops her from returning to who she was. She can't change what she did and she doesn't feel she deserves to move on. That's her punishment: to live with this guilt for the rest of her life.

Cracked Up To Be is an amazingly written novel. The characters are believable. Parker's faults make her realistic and complex. Seeing who she is now makes you want to keep reading to find out why she changed. The plot is mostly unpredictable. I love the way that one night is revealed in little bits throughout the novel, adding to the suspense and making you want to read more. Overall it is a really great book!
