"This was a book I loved to hate and hated to love!" 
Confessions of a High School Disaster is one of those books that you know you should  probably put down but you just can't, it's a train wreck you can't look away from! It is kind of like the Bachelor, I probably shouldn't watch it but I record it every single week and silently cheer for one of the girls... silently, because I don't want anyone to know I'm watching it.

This story focuses on Chloe Snow's diary and her high school experience as a freshman. It is very rare that I don't support the main character of a book and I could not handle Chloe because she is extremely self-centered, hypocritical, and naive.  I didn't find her to be relatable at all, and her life at high school was unrealistic. I was constantly thinking to myself, are people really this mean? If I'm completely honest though, this is the reason the book was so entertaining. Chloe is shockingly similar to Celeste from The Selection series, and you just love to hate her

I did like the meanness of this story and there were several parts that I felt would be inappropriate for young readers, this is definitely for older kids.  I enjoyed the story more than I thought I would and suggest that people looking for a funny, light, and easy read pick it up!
If you loved Mean Girls then this is a Diary for you!
