Review: Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison

Bridget Duke is the uncontested ruler of her school. The meanest girl with the biggest secret insecurities. And when new girl Anna Judge arrives, things start to fall apart for Bridget: friends don't worship as attentively, teachers don't fall for her wide-eyed "who me?" look, expulsion looms ahead and the one boy she's always loved—Liam Ward—can barely even look at her anymore.

When a desperate Bridget drives too fast and crashes her car, she ends up in limbo, facing everyone she's wronged and walking a few uncomfortable miles in their shoes. Now she has only one chance to make a last impression. Though she might end up dead, she has one last shot at redemption and the chance to right the wrongs she's inflicted on the people who mean the most to her.
And Bridget's about to learn that, sometimes, saying you're sorry just isn't enough….

This book is about Bridget. A girl who was a "MEAN" Girl. She had no respect for anyone or anything. She treated her friends Nasty. She pushed away her boyfriend to the point that he broke up with her And had fights with her step-mom.

Until suddenly something happens to make her walk in their shoes And sees herself as others see her. This journey with her was remarkable. It is well thought out and well described. Great execution of each situation. The characters are likeable and you even feel sorry for them with the way Bridget treats them. I took a lot away from this book. I wasn't sure where it was going at first but when it took the turn that it did I was pleasantly surprised. If you get a chance to read this PLEASE DO. It reminded of the book "If I Stay" This is a journey you wont want to miss.
