The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo

Lisa Bellow is a middle school “mean girl.” When she’s kidnapped in front of her classmate Meredith both Meredith and her mom, Claire, have to deal with a barrage of (sometimes bizarre) feelings. The truth is, though, Lisa may be an acknowledged mean girl, but Meredith and Claire are not going to be winning any Miss Congeniality awards.

Beautifully written. Slightly repetitive. There were under currents and stories-upon-stories – little asides zinging through this book. Much couldn’t be taken at face value.

I thought the book was interesting, but I kept waiting for something to happen. And then I thought it had. But it hadn’t. Still a cool story and a fun odd read.
