Review: My Big Fat Heart-Shaped Fail


Ever since Paige and Jess spent their spring vacation together - Abby's been feeling left out. She invented a fake boyfriend to cover up the fact that her current crush is dating one of her best friends. She has all these secrets building up inside her. When she and her friends get five free balloons, she decides to write her secrets on paper and release them. She calculates that they will float away and she will feel better,

Abby doesn't expect them to land near the school. She doesn't expect her secrets to become public knowledge. She doesn't expect everyone to gossip about them and attempt to figure out the truth. What was supposed to be a fun day turns into Abby's worst nightmare...
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this middle grade book all about friendship drama, first romances, and being an outsider. I felt really bad for Abby - she had such a hard day and she made such terrible choices. I really did enjoy the I wanted to say vs What I did say moments. I wanted to wrap Abby up in a huge hug. But I do love the way everything turned out. 

Cover Thoughts: Cute
