Twigs by Alison Ashley Formento
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really got a kick out of this book. Yes, it was silly and over-the-top in places, but I laughed a lot. Reading some of the other reviews on Goodreads, I'm surprised that so many people disliked the main character, Twigs. I thought she was pretty funny. But maybe that's because I've thought about hitting people with my car, too. ;) I do agree that some of her nicknames for people were rude, but poor little Twigs, she was unhappy and angry and lonely, and she was just doing the best she could in her soap-opera life.
As far as a YA book goes, there is quite a bit of cussing and sexual references, but there's not a lot of violence (unless you consider hitting people with cars, iPods, and shampoo bottles violent). I might not recommend this book to my younger teenage friends, but I would definitely recommend it to my friends who read Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series.
