When Brie’s stepfather moves the family for what he calls a new beginning, it’s not the new beginning the beautiful, yet guarded, senior would have hoped for. Brie is instantly targeted by jealous girls at her new school, and the only available seat on her bus is next to the school’s star wide receiver, Jake, who for some reason, finds her offensive. After a humiliating article and picture of Brie is posted in the online school journal, a demon she thought she’d overcome resurfaces, and her life unravels. A newly compassionate Jake has finally taken an interest in her, but can Brie learn to trust her heart, or will she miss out on the best thing that ever happened to her?
Uncaged Review: Aimed mainly at a younger audience, this book is a good story that tackles some of today’s issues, like bullying, abuse and cutting. It tossed me back into high school, and some of the issues that we see happening in the school are some of the things I remember, not necessarily with me, but the drama, the cliques – all present in most high schools from the past and present.
Brie is the new student in school for a senior year, and is already being dissed by the popular girls in the school. Jake, a popular football player, shows an interest in Brie and risks his popularity to get to know her. But Brie and Jake break down each other’s walls, and it becomes a sweet romance that you will cheer for. The characters are well developed and the storyline will have you feeling you are back in high school, whether that’s good or bad for you Reviewed by Cyrene
