9780147511546: Unfriended

In middle school, nothing is more important than friendship.
When Truly is invited to sit at the Popular Table with the group she has dreamed of joining, she can hardly believe her luck. Everyone seems so nice, so kind to one another. But all is not as it seems with her new friends, and soon she's caught in a maelstrom of lies, misunderstandings, accusations and counter-accusations, all happening very publicly in the relentless, hyperconnected social media world from which there is no escape.
Six eighth-graders, four girls and two boys, struggle to understand and process their fractured glimples into one another's lives as they find new ways to disconnect, but also to connect, in Rachel Vail's richest and most searching book.

Review:


"Another winner by Rachel Vail. At times laugh-out-loud funny, and other times heartbreaking., Unfriended is the kind of book I wish there were more of: emotionally complex, beautifully written, and impossble to put down. I never wanted it to end."--Meg Cabot
"Rachel Vail should be required reading for all middle-schoolers. Deft and funny, this tale of the doom and drama of friendships played out in a digital universe is pitch-perfect and sheer fun."--Judy Blundell, author of "What I Saw and How I Lied"
"Rachel Vail's ingenious, humorous, and compassionate storytelling brings her six narrators so fully alive that by the end of her book you cannot imagine ever 'unfriending' any of them."--Mary Pope Osborne, author of the Magic Treehouse books
"With keen insight, Vail reveals the internal struggles with uncertainty and self-doubt that can plague young teens regardless of popularity status. . . With a resolution that is both realistic and hopeful, Vail captures the complexity of middle school social challenges, insightfully addressing the issues of friendships and integrity." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Vail has a great ear for dialogue, and her characters. . . are well differentiated and realistic." --"VOYA"
"Vail has always had her finger solidly on the pulse of middle-school social dynamics, with an uncanny ear for young teen dialogue and a real empathy for the wide and awkward range of social and physical development that characterize this age . . . Vail's considerable fan base alone would justify multiple-copy purchase plans, but the hot-button topic of cyberbullying will further increase requests."--"Booklist"
"A realistic portrayal of middle school life . . . A solid choice that will ignite meaningful discussion."--"School Library Journal"
"Vail captures the complexity of middle school social challenges, insightfully addressing the issues of friendships and integrity."--"Kirkus Reviews"
