Solitaire by Alice Oseman

The name of the main character is Tori Spring. She watches films and posts depressing stuff on her blog. She prefers being alone and hates people who are talkative, cheery, optimistic etc.. Now meet Michael Holden, talkative, odd, and determined to become Tori’s friend. Series of pranks have been happening around the school, each one more serious than the other, by some group called Solitaire. For the first time in a long while, Tori cared. She cared about stopping Solitaire, about her newly friend Michael, and so much more. This book takes Tori on a journey in which she finally discovered herself and how to “feel” again.

I felt like I could connect with the book, like I was Tori and not just reading in her perspective. The book could make you feel how much she struggled and really made you wonder how she was actually able to keep her sanity for some of the time. The author showed us what it’s like to lose your I would recommend this to book to someone who is struggling, so they can be inspired and discover themselves as a person.
