Woohoo! I read at least one paperback every month this year! I still have a ton in my unread stash, but it's slowly dwindling. This month, I chose Four Secrets by Margaret Willey because it was a relatively small book for what's a busy month and I really like the cover. 

It was an interesting book with four secrets, obviously, and it's told in varying point-of-views as you slowly find out what the secrets are and see how the story unravels. The POVs were really distinct and it was cool to see what really happened. For me, I didn't expect any of the secrets to be what they were or for it to happen the way they did. That's always a good element to have. The ending left me wanting a little more, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Overall, a good book that I'm glad I finally got around to reading! 

"To you the idea to kidnap Chase Dobson might seem like a mistake. But to us... we were just trying to stop him from being so...evil. We just...we had to stop him. No one helps kids like us. Not at my school. We aren't the important kids. We knew it wouldn't stop unless we stopped it ourselves." Katie, Nate, and Renata had no farther to fall down the social ladder. But when they hit bottom, they found each other. Together, they wanted to change things. To stop the torment. So they made a plan. One person seemed to have everyone's secretsand all the power. If they could stop him... But secrets are complicated, powerful things. They are hard to keep. And even a noble plan to stop a bully can go horribly wrong.
