Review: The Complete History of Why I Hate Her (Jacobsen)

Title: The Complete History of Why I Hate Her
Author: Jacobsen
Genre: Friendship, Fiction, Identity
Pages: 192
Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

So, I brought home a giant box of books from the public library over the weekend (last minute summer reading list hopefuls!) and this was one of them. When my mom saw it on the top of the pile, the only thing she could say was "nice title," and not in a good way. Yes, moms never stop being moms.

Nola has left home for the summer to live on her own, away from her family and her sister's cancer diagnosis. She gets a job as a waitress in a resort but realizes that she doesn't know anyone and is out of practice making friends. She is excited when the outgoing Carly befriends her, but Carly turns out to be much more complicated than the typical summer buddy. Nola slowly realizes that she may have gotten much more than she bargained for with this friend.

Now that I see the cover in this blog post, I realize that the public library barcode is covering up the best part of the cover. The cover design really works for the book!
