// SYNOPSIS //
Who does she think she is? Annalise’s audacious freshman-year hookup with Cooper Franklin has a trio of friends thirsting for revenge. So they catfish Annalise by creating the perfect virtual guy, with Noelle playing along reluctantly only because her lifelong crush, Cooper, is in love with Annalise. As Annalise falls for it, even buying tickets for the concert of the year for her and her mythical new guy, Noelle feels more and more guilty. Then, the whole thing blows up and Annalise faces her betrayers. But when Annalise forgives, the reunited friends learn that adults–even famous adults–can be even more bogus than teenagers.
// MY THOUGHTS //
Hiya fellow book worms! I’m finally back with another review! So without further ado I’ll just jump right on into things!
Identity Crisis was sent to me from Merit Press in exchange for an honest review! Thank you again Merit Press for sending me a copy of this lovely book!
Okay, so this book is told from a dual point of view. We meet Annalise; a shy, smart, fangirl of Brassknuckles! (Think 1Direction kinda band except with one lead guy!) Annalise is trying to make it through high school seemingly unnoticed since the scandal that rocked homecoming, but with a band of girls thirsting for revenge like sharks searching for blood it’s not that easy. The second voice we meet in this novel is Noelle. Noelle seems to have it all. The perfect friends. The perfect parents who have money. All she needs is the perfect boyfriend; Cooper. But not everything is always as perfect as it seems. Noelle wasn’t your typical mean girl, which I liked. She had doubts about her and her friends cat-fishing Annalise. She felt guilty and knew it was wrong, but she still went along with it, but only for so long.
This was honestly a very cute book that I really enjoyed reading. It had a lot messages for young adults throughout the entire novel. You should always be careful of who you are talking to online. You should stand up for yourself and you shouldn’t let others define you. I loved how strong willed both leading ladies were in this book!
If you’re looking for a cute light funny read then look no further! Identity Crisis is the perfect fit for you!
