Regan Flay has been talking about you.
Regan Flay is on the cusp of achieving her control-freak mother's "plan" for high school success―cheerleading, student council, the Honor Society—until her life gets turned horribly, horribly upside down. Every bitchy text. Every bitchy email. Every lie, manipulation, and insult she's ever said have been printed out and taped to all the lockers in school.
Now Regan has gone from popular princess to total pariah.
The only person who even speaks to her is her former best friend's hot but socially miscreant brother, Nolan Letner. Nolan thinks he knows what Regan's going through, but what nobody knows is that Regan isn't really Little Miss Perfect. In fact, she's barely holding it together under her mom's pressure. But the consequences of Regan's fall from grace are only just beginning. Once the chain reaction starts, no one will remain untouched...
Especially Regan Flay.

“I had no idea that I was… destroying people.”

 

 

The thing I have been loving the most about Entangled Teen books this year, is the message they send to people.  Some are full of romance, some action packed and full of adventure, and then there are books like ‘Life Unaware’ that hit you in the feels, and give you an idea of how some teens spend their High School lives. I love when a book I am reading, touches on daily issues we tend to face in life.

I find a lot of people in life, tend to be hurtful or say mean things to others, because they themselves are hurting in some form of their lives. I feel the same way about Regan in the beginning of this book. At the start of things Regan is your normal school student. Cheerleader, daughter of a congresswoman, Student council, Need to be the centre of the world teenager. She is always in the spotlight. And like most teenagers, she tends to talk behind peoples back, call names and be an all around bully. Regan spoke with head cheerleader Amber about so much, including what she thought of her peers. She wasn’t a big fan of Amber, but she knew she needed to be ‘friends’ if she wanted to survive the social food chain. Then something happens that she didn’t see coming – All of her texts between her and some friends were printed out, and posted around school for everyone to see. Everything she ever said about anyone, in the open for everyone to read.

Her life changes, her best friend stops talking to her, and a boy who she hated was the one person who came to her side, when she felt the lowest and worst about what was going on. There are some hints along the way as to who did this, and I won’t give any spoilers as to who did.

I love when books touch on subjects that a lot of people tend to remove themselves from. Bullying is something we dealt with when I was younger, we still do now, and we most likely will in the future. One book is not going to make it stop at this very moment, but it’s a fantastic way to bring it to the light for people who may turn a blind eye.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.
