Secrets of my Suburban Life by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

Back Cover: Everything changed for Lauren ("Ren") after Harry Potter killed her mom. no, it's not what you think-Harry Potter didn't come to life and stab her or anything. A stack of those thick books crushed her. Now Ren is stuck out in the suburbs of Connecticut, dragged out there because her father is too grief stricken to continue living in New York. Ren tries to fit in at her new school, but the most popular girl, Farrin, keeps icing her out. Then Ren discovers that Farrin has a secret: She's been communicating online with an older man, and they are actually planning to meet! Ren can't let Farrin go through with it- she's witnessed enough tragi events as it is. So she comes up with the perfect plan to stop the perv. But then she finds out who he is... This was a good book, kinda weird the way her mom dies, but it's all good. It's a likable story and Ren is a likable characters, who has some crazy things going on in her life. But it's like what, she thought her dad was the perv! I mean, it kinda made sense, but that was def concluding something way too fast. It is def scary how people can find so much information about you online and everything, unless of course you never go online, but still! It was sad how she had to write to her mom instead of being able to talk to her, even though she thought she wasn't handling it too well, it seemed to me like she was. This cover is kinda scary though, like a scary dollhouse or something haha so ya it was good though!
