Synopsis:

A devastating Twitter prank yanks Hannah out of the popular crowd and turns her into the high school’s best bad joke. Determined to finish the year and graduate, Hannah must keep the humiliating details from her impulsive mother—who just might pack up their belongings and move. Again.

Hannah hovers below the radar by submersing herself in a new routine. Post-it notes, Dewey Decimal numbers and carefully planned trips to the library are her refuge. That is, until a persistent new student invades her space. Lucas has complete disregard for Hannah’s cynicism and snark, and he seems to know the bullies who targeted her. Can Hannah trust him, or is he part of another ploy to torment her?

REVIEW

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a paperback copy for an honest review.

Hannah Both Ways is book that will touch you, and make you think about real social issues teens are struggling with. Rosie managed to address several different issues in this story, some were being bullied due to not being normal and others were being bullied because of someone else trying to get what they wanted. This is all happening more and more, and was written beautifully. The characters were believable and I really liked the story.

Hannah has a system down, a routine, and it all involves keeping her head down. She doesn’t want anyone noticing her. Hannah eats her lunch in the library, has no friends and does a Writer’s Craft class. Ever since last year and the popular crowd set her up she just wants to keep to herself and can’t trust anyone.

This was very reminiscent of Mean Girls in some aspects, not all just a few. She wants friends, of course and wanted to be popular at the time, but she also can’t stand them either. She sees how stupid they are and vain. They really are not like her but she puts up with it because she want the friendship to work out. Then only to be betrayed.

Lucas is new at the school, it is in the middle of the school year and he feels completely out of place. He is looking for friends and wants Hannah to be one of them. He tries so hard even when she pushes him away because she feels she can’t trust. Lucas knows what it is like to be picked on. He shares his insecurities, and it draws them closer. He feels he can see the real her, and they are alike.

No one in the school talks to Hannah, and everyone has been warned about what happened. Will Lucas still fight for her even when the school tells him not to? Can Hannah fight to have the truth come out about what really happened that day? You have to read this book to find out.

I really enjoyed this book it had great pacing, and left me satisfied. I loved the message the book gave, and would say that all teens should read it. I am giving it 4 out 5 stars.
