EXCUSE ME WHILE I UGLY CRY
By J. Goffney
This is an emotional YA read about a list-obsessed teen who's private journal falls into the wrong hands leading to blackmail via social media.
She teams up with the last person to see the journal, cute and practical Carter, in an attempt to try and get it back before her reputation is completely ruined. Along the way, she learns a lot about herself, her family, her friend group, and the type of person she wants to become. Not to mention, the type of boy she wants by her side.
Topics explored include race, identity, authenticity, friendship, bravery, and living honestly. Highly recommend.
