When a video of Carolyn and Shane making out is sent to everyone, Carolyn goes from golden girl to slut, as Brooke and her best friend Gemma try to restore their popularity. Gossip and bullying hound Carolyn, who becomes increasingly private and isolated. When Shane and Brookenow back togetherconfront Carolyn in the student parking lot, injuring her, it's the last attack she can take. Sarah Bannan's deft use of the first person plural gives Weightless an emotional intensity and remarkable power that will send you flying through the pages and leave you reeling.

If you like dark high school stories you'll like this. Depressingly accurate about teen bullying and really powerful in evoking a small town, no outsiders here atmosphere. I have no idea if parts of the US are really like this, but the description of lemming like behaviour and power in the hands of the few was pretty scary. Not without fault but I really enjoyed it. Read on the train to Trieste.

CocoReads Depressing to say, it does happen all too often. The book sounds good though, I‘ve stacked it. 7mo
