When I started this book I wasn't sure what to expect, from the cover I thought it was definitely a middle grade book so I wasn't sure how I would like it as I haven't read a middle grade book since probably elementary school. I wasn't sure if I would still enjoy them, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I like the idea of the theater changing her - I've always been one who found the arts and fun things helpful in getting out there.
This book very much so reminded me of my middle school/early high school years. I suffered from a disease called confusion and I'm not saying Mia suffers from this but I feel like everyone at this age is confused to some degree about life and just the way the world seems to work.
Early high school is really the first taste of the world in some ways as Elementary school you're still a kid, and you act like a kid, and Middle school is full of the awkward growing into yourself years. Early high school however is full of you beginning to become yourself and that's what I really enjoyed being reminded of in this book.
I would recommend it to you if perhaps you have a younger brother or sister, or if you just want to relive that part of your life and have some fun along the way.
