    "People don't volunteer or give money out of the goodness of their hearts. They do it out of guilt, for bragging rights, to follow a trend, to get into heaven--whatever. In the real world, everything is business and everybody has an end game." -Alyssa Weaver Alyssa, Miss Popularity ...

    Teen readers who gravitate toward "sick lit," those stories about individuals facing challenging health issues, will enjoy this one. While I'd like to think that someone could be as forgiving and generous as Janelle, I'm not sure that I could buy the premise that she'd be able to get o...

    I got this book because my library was giving away ARCs and this was one of them I chose. There are some books that just aren't as good when I read them more than once. And then there are some that I can read again and again. I saw this book on some list on this site back in Novembe...

    Sorry Not Sorry is a sad book. I gave this book four stars because it is a very entertaining book with some twists and turns, but I didn't give it the last star because a lot of the plot is explained on the back cover, and I would like a little bit more suspense and unknown. ...

    This book was over all a great novel, but if you were to read the back like most people, you would already know what took place in the novel. Even though there were a few surprises here and there, I still feel like it was not as thrilling to read because I already knew the main plots a...

    This book was over all a great novel, but if you were to read the back like most people, you would already know what took place in the novel. Even though there were a few surprises here and there, I still feel like it was not as thrilling to read because I already knew the main plots a...

    I realized why this book irritated me so much... At 30 years old I?m too old for all of these new words or phrases that I have to Google in order to understand. ? But in all seriousness this was a good book. I LOVE how diverse the characters are. That is one of the best things abo...

    Teen readers who gravitate toward "sick lit," those stories about individuals facing challenging health issues, will enjoy this one. While I'd like to think that someone could be as forgiving and generous as Janelle, I'm not sure that I could buy the premise that she'd be able to get o...

    Life lessons abound in Sorry Not Sorry. My students love this story. I purchased extra copies to fill the need in my classroom. If you've ever had a BFF and had a huge fight with your BFF, you can relate to this book, no matter what your age. Thanks to Jaime Reed for this touching, ...

    A fun read - this is more of a YA read, but every now and then I need a mindless read. This is one of those. The characters were in high school, but were wise beyond their age. The plot was fast moving and the book was fun. It was like stepping back into high school, but I wasn't 100% ...

    I got this book because my library was giving away ARCs and this was one of them I chose. There are some books that just aren't as good when I read them more than once. And then there are some that I can read again and again. I saw this book on some list on this site back in Novembe...

    Sorry Not Sorry is a sad book. I gave this book four stars because it is a very entertaining book with some twists and turns, but I didn't give it the last star because a lot of the plot is explained on the back cover, and I would like a little bit more suspense and unknown. ...

    This book was over all a great novel, but if you were to read the back like most people, you would already know what took place in the novel. Even though there were a few surprises here and there, I still feel like it was not as thrilling to read because I already knew the main plots a...

    Teen readers who gravitate toward "sick lit," those stories about individuals facing challenging health issues, will enjoy this one. While I'd like to think that someone could be as forgiving and generous as Janelle, I'm not sure that I could buy the premise that she'd be able to get o...

    @kidlitexchange #partner Thank you to the @kidlitexchange network and the publisher for the advance copy of Sorry Not Sorry by Jaime Reed. This book was released in February 2019. Janelle and Alyssa used to be best friends. They shared secrets with each other that they never tol...

    @kidlitexchange #partner . Thank you to the #KidLitExchange network for the review copy of #SorryNotSorry. All opinions are my own. . . Have you ever had a friend who felt more like your sister? Janelle and Alyssa are like that. Or more so, WERE like that. But now Alyssa is one of ...

    Thank you Goodreads Giveaway for a chance to read this book early! As an adult I still really enjoy YA and love a chance to find new books for my students. I think teens would love the realistic characters, friendships and drama wrapped up in this book. I personally did not feel...

    Life lessons abound in Sorry Not Sorry. My students love this story. I purchased extra copies to fill the need in my classroom. If you've ever had a BFF and had a huge fight with your BFF, you can relate to this book, no matter what your age. Thanks to Jaime Reed for this touching, ...

    A fun read - this is more of a YA read, but every now and then I need a mindless read. This is one of those. The characters were in high school, but were wise beyond their age. The plot was fast moving and the book was fun. It was like stepping back into high school, but I wasn't 100% ...

    Between 1.5-2 stars. ...

    I got this book because my library was giving away ARCs and this was one of them I chose. There are some books that just aren't as good when I read them more than once. And then there are some that I can read again and again. I saw this book on some list on this site back in Novembe...

    Sorry Not Sorry is a sad book. I gave this book four stars because it is a very entertaining book with some twists and turns, but I didn't give it the last star because a lot of the plot is explained on the back cover, and I would like a little bit more suspense and unknown. ...
