Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.”

This was a really good story, about one girl and how her bullying ways backfired on her.

“It all started with a text.”

I liked Regan, although she really did say some nasty things about people at the start of the book. I did feel like she was only saying nasty things because she herself felt insecure, but that didn’t stop her words from hurting people.

“Regan Flay should just do the world a favour and kill herself.”

The storyline in this was pretty good, although I did feel really sorry for Regan and what she was going through. It seemed quite unfair that she was the only one singled out, when other people had been just as guilty as she was.

“Here’s what Regan Flay thinks about you.”

There was some romance, although I did find it awfully predictable. I guessed really early on who the love interest was going to be, even when Regan claimed to not like him.

“Welcome to the other side, Flay. You won’t last a week.”

The ending to this was okay, although it wasn’t my favourite part of the book. Everything seemed to end reasonably happy though.
7.5 out of 10.
