I enjoyed reading The Upside of Regret by T. K. Rapp. It is an easy to read young adult romance. Great read for a rainy day.
It has a great ending, but the getting there was the best part.
Brighton has a great family. I loved how they watch out for her. The romance between her and Matt was handled really well too, with nothing getting out of hand.
One of the main characters, Leah, kept making me mad during the first half of the book. She liked a bad guy, who just plain was not nice, and let him get away with lots of crap. As I learned more about what was really going on, it reminded me that we don’t always know everything we think we know. Especially about other people.
And really good friends are hard to come by. Hang on to them. Tight!
About the book:
Brighton and Leah have been the best of friends since seventh grade. Where Brighton is the quiet one who is focused on school, Leah is the bold and daring one who craves the adoration of an audience. It’s always worked for them, until now.
Heading into their senior year, Brighton is challenged with an opportunity that can change the course of her future. The only problem? She just might have to step out of her best friend’s shadow.
But when Leah doesn’t support the choices she makes, Brighton is forced to reevaluate what true friendship is.
Brighton is changing and exciting doors are opening. A new world of music, friends, and even love are falling at her feet. But it’s hard to enjoy it when Leah’s life is spiraling out of control.
Now Brighton must try to not only save her friendship, but also her friend, before it’s too late.
