Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend by Louise Rozett

How did I get the book? Netgalley, thank you Harlequin (UK) Limited

Genre: Contemporary

Previously reviewed:
Confessions of an Angry Girl

Synopsis: 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

200words (or less) review: I enjoyed Confessions of an Angry Girl but Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend is so much better. It’s more emotional, complex and really hard to put down.

About to return to school after the train-wreck of her the previous year Rose is at a party and ends up in the spotlight again and not in a good way. From an outside perspective Rose is doing the right thing but none of her classmates agree and neither does the person she helps.

Throughout Confessions of an Almost-Girlfriend you can’t help but feel bad for Rose because no matter what she does it always seems to blow up in her face. At times it really feels like everyone and everything is conspiring against her.

Unlike the previously book I was completely convinced by Rose’s emotions in this story. Despite the fact that she is more sympathetic this time round Louise Rozett doesn’t distract from Rose’s faults. Sometimes I sided with her family/friends but more often than not I was on Rose’s side.

Louise Rozett now has me hooked, there is no way I won’t be reading the next book.

Recommend it?

Absolutely
