Jazmine Crawford doesn’t make decisions. She doesn’t make choices. She doesn’t make friends. Jazmine Crawford only wants one thing: to be invisible. For Jazmine, it’s a lot easier to take out her hearing aid and drift along pretending that nothing’s wrong than it is to admit that she’s heartbroken. She starts to come out of her shell when she’s forced to be in the school play and even makes friends with bouncy Gabby and chocolate-loving Liam. But can she stand up to the school bully, and is she strong enough to face the truth about what really happened to her dad?
I’ve had a string of bad books and I’m glad to say this might have broken that string. I really enjoyed this book.
Jazmine was a girl that touches your heart instantly. I knew a few people in highs school like her. They were completely fine blending in with the crowd. I think her transformation from wall flower to someone who stands up for herself was done wonderfully. Mrs. Fraser was probably my favorite character. She was there whenever Jaz needed her and gave her a great kick in the butt when she refused to do something.
I loved that Jaz was able to stand up to her bully, because it shows girls that you don’t have to put up with those kinds of people. The added journal entries were wonderful and really gave you a feel for who Jaz was.
This is a wonderful coming-of-age story with a little romance added. I would suggest this book to anyone.
