Twisted – Laurie Halse Anderson

screen-shot-2016-10-05-at-9-40-48-amHigh school senior Tyler Miller was a nerd until he got busted for graffiti and given outdoor community service. Now 6’3 and built, he attracts the interest of the girl he’s always crushed on, queen bee Bethany Milbury. She’s also the daughter of his father’s boss and the sister of a bully. Tyler is dazzled until Bethany proves less than loyal and their relationship ends. When her nude picture shows up on the internet, Tyler is the obvious suspect because of their fight and his criminal background. The fall out has him questioning his newfound popularity (now on the skids), school in general and the dynamics in his dysfunctional family.  An interesting read by a terrific YA author who writes imperfect yet relatable characters.

  1. I have only read Speak (because it’s basically required reading), but this sounds so good. I should really stretch out into Laurie Halse Anderson’s other works. Thanks you the recommendation 🙂
