Taste Testing Tuesdays + GIVEAWAY!

Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers! Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

On the menu this week...a book from the Young Adult genre with teens facing real life issues, or should I say NOT facing them.  Curious read so far, ready for a taste?  Here goes...

A Really Awesome Mess
Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin

There was no freaking way I'd worked this hard to look half decent only to have it taken away from me by some blubber-loving freaks.  Although I only resorted to purging on days I accidentally ate a little too much air-popped popcorn or grabbed a second fat-free, sugar-free yogurt, it was becoming clear I'd have to rely on this tactic a little more heavily here.
-- pg 32

Nobody knew who was going to blow it for us.  But everybody knew somebody was.
-- pg 74

Two little tastes of one interesting book.
As I write this tease, I'm only partially through the book, but hey, THAT'S what this sorts post is for, right?  Right!
