Haters by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez.
Reviewed by Lensa

This book has a lot of interesting things but the best thing about the book is it is a page turner. U want to read more, as U read a chapter U just can't get enough of it. It is the best book i ever read. I don't thing there is any worst thing about the book but when the book ends it is really hard to accept it because it is that interesting. I know some people who read the book twice already. The reasons are that the characters do seem real, all the things that happen have shocking endings at the ends of the chapters and the setting is really interesting. It just looks like it happens right there as you are reading the story.

The story takes place at high school in California which makes it much more interesting. Paski, the new girl, didn't have a nice week because of the snotty kids in the school, except a really cute guy whom she liked named Chris who helped her through the the conflict in the school and helped her be a hero by saving lives with her visions and by winning a big race. I recommend this book for girls who like funny stories and a little romance - not too much. I don't recommend this book for boys because i think it is a little girlish book. I think U should really read the book for enjoyment or to laugh out loud. My opinion for this book is --- Ii reallllllllllly liked it so much that I can't wait till part 2 gets out....
