conflict/resolution

Jodee encountered character vs society and character vs self. The reason for character vs society is she was bullied all thought school. It wasn't until her high school reunion she forgave all of the kids for the things they had done. The reason for character vs self is at one point in the book she just gave up and let everyone take over her mind and pretty much her body because the other kids would beat her up and throw things at her.

theme

things might be hard but look for the bright side of things

textual evidence

“The hardest thing about being an outcast isn't the love you don't receive. It's the love you long to give that nobody wants. After a while, it backs up into your system like stagnant water and turns toxic, poisoning your spirit. When this happens, you don't have many choices available. You can become a bitter loner who goes through life being pissed off at the world; you can fester with rage until one day you murder your classmates. Or, you can find another outlet for your love, where it will be appreciated and maybe even returned.”
Jodee Blanco

book review

I would rate this book a 5 out of 5. I'm giving it this rate because I loved the detail that she gave throughout the book. I liked how she was able to fit her whole life in one book. Another reason I feel it deserves this rating is because the over all book was just really good.
