Melville, New Jersey, is the perfect place to have a pretty medicre life for like seventy years and then die. In fact, that might be on
the WELCOME TO MELVILLE sign you see when you get off the turnpike at Exit 6A, right above POPULATION: 5,500 EMPTY FUNYUNS BAGS, 1 BORED JEWISH GIRL.
This is a coming of age novel about a girl named Scarlett.She is obsessed with a show "Lycanthrope
High" and writes fanfiction about it.She also has a crush on Gideon, who has known her since elementary school. I have to be honest at first I didn't like this book. Scarlett was worred about petty things like getting a boyfriend and she was also jealous of
a "Popular" girl named Ashley. Scarlett is friends with Avery and Ruth. Avery does Scarletts' homework. UHH! Ruth is an old woman who likes to smoke weed. By the middle of the book my opinions change. Scarlett's dad hurt her mom and scarlett stands up for
her. This is when the book gets way better. This book deals with death, freindship, love and is filled with teenage trops. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it does have a powerful message.
