Ballads of Suburbia

Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert
Kara hasn't been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad-boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park....Amid the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

Ballads of Suburbia was the first book that i read from Stephanie Kuehnert and its an amazing book! She did an awesome job , no questions! I couldn't put the book down. There was more and more things going on I just had to see what happened next. My favorite characters would have to be Cass , Kara, and Maya. I loved how you felt like you where right there along side of them. It showed life has many struggles and sometimes people just cant handle it and sometimes this is what helps. This book is freakin amazing. I absolutely loved it and cant wait for another. I would recommend it to everyone.
