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 My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time.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?)

~ Review ~  


Confessions of an Angry Girl is certainly not what I expected in a good way. I actually don't know what I expected, but one thing I do know is that Louise Rozett excelled and surpassed my expectations. My predictable assumption of an angry teen who reforms at the end is certainly not what we get in Confessions of an Angry Girl, or I should say that's not ALL we get, this story has depth and it's characters are very multi-dimensional and the writing easily has the Readers delving into Rose's life as if we are simply part of the story.

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's life as she knew it changed dramatically after one of those early morning phone calls, the ones where you know that it must be something bad, as no one in their right mind would call at that time for anything else. Her Father has been killed in Iraq, whilst he went there willingly as an Engineer to raise more money so both Rose and her older brother, Peter, could attend College.

Rose is angry! She's lost her beloved Father, to what she feels was a totally avoidable situation, her older brother is running off to College, leaving her and her Mother alone to deal with their grief all by themselves. Her Mother, a Counsellor, can't seem to deal with her own grief, let alone help Rose with hers. That's just her problems at home. School is another story, she's crushing on an unavailable bad boy Senior, Jamie Forta, who happens to be taken by none other than the head Queen B cheerleader, Regina.

Confessions of an Angry Girl is Rose's journey as she tries to tackle all these problems and do it whilst staying sane and not attacking anyone!

When I was first introduced to the characters I was worried that it'd be stereotypical because we have:-

Best friend Tracy who is in love with a bad boy jock that Rose doesn't get along with because he treats her BFF badly.
Bitchy cheerleader Regina and her minions who torments Rose.
Broody and bad boy crush, Jamie, who's with the popular, beautiful but bitchy cheerleader Regina.
The "friend" that wish he could be more, Robert.
The confusing big brother Peter, sometimes fantastic and caring, other times...let's just leave it to confusing.

That's just a few of the characters above, so as you see where I thought "Oh oh, this is going to be just like any other non-standout YA novel" but fear not, because despite the inclusion of these characters, Louise made the story unique, certainly not at all what I expected or guessed from the Synopsis.

Confessions of an Angry Girl is a well written YA novel, Louise Rozett can certainly write and create wonderful characters. Confession of an Angry Girl in three words; real, raw and heartfelt.
