Neighbourhood Girls, written by Jessie Ann Foley, is about a girl named Wendy Boychuck, whose father gets arrested unexpectedly, especially for the fact that he was a cop.
Because of this, Wendy suddenly becomes the talk of the town. She is isolated and rumours start to form about her. So when Wendy starts her new school year, she gets approached by ‘the popular girls’ and doesn’t get bullied anymore. The only price was to leave her best friend. So yeah, she ditched her only real friend.
What’s more, is that her private school is closing due to low budget and staff. In a quest to get over the pressure, stress, and guilt, Wendy decides to lie low and stick with the popular kids. However, Wendy starts to realize just how bad of an influence her new ‘friends’ are giving her. Her only reason for not leaving is her fear, which would increase her chance of getting made fun of, so she stays with them unwillingly. It’s the right choice…right?
This book was okay, but I seriously died and I hated the ending soooo yeah. I’ll give it 3/5 stars.
P.S I bought this book so it’s not at the library yet.
