Reviews

"The propulsive, riveting novel that started it all." - Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us is Lying and Two Can Keep a Secret

"Cracked Up to Be was my first introduction to the vicious brilliance that is Courtney Summers. Right from the opening lines, that breathless hammering of beats that illustrate the terrifying and true experience of high school, I knew I was in the hands of a writer who would be honest with her readers, who would even be brutal. This book changed me as a reader and as a writer. I could never go back again. After being gutted by a Summers novel, why would anyone want to?" --Nova Ren Suma, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Walls Around Us

"Cracked Up to Be is a blisteringly realistic exploration of high school and the trauma that can occur during adolescence. Its brutally honest portrayal of Parker Fadley and her world is unforgettable. A modern classic." --Brandy Colbert, award-winning author of The Revolution of Birdie Randolph and Little & Lion

"This book is a raw, exposed nerve: all the mess we shouldn't see, shouldn't be, wrapped up in the story of one unforgettable girl. Courtney Summers and CRACKED UP TO BE rewrote the rules and for that I am forever grateful." -- Rebecca Barrow, author of This Is What It Feels Like

"Parker Fadley is THE seminal unlikable female character of modern young adult literature. One of my favorite books of all time, CRACKED UP TO BE is absolutely riveting from first page to last." - Laurie Devore, author of How to Break a Boy and Winner Take All
