ETHOS

This book has gotten many great reviews including one from a reader saying that "I finished this book with a smile. It is a little sad, but I couldn't stop to put it down."

LOGOS

This book would be great of you like romance and/or realistic fiction. It is a mixture of both, talking about Gia's friendships and relationships.

PATHOS

My favorite part of this book was when Gia found out that her parents liked her brother's school project video. She stated multiple times that the video mocked her, no matter how many times other characters said that what the video was saying was evidently correct. I liked this part of the book because it showed how much it affected Gia and her view of things.
