Week 51 Review: Life by Committee

From Goodreads:
Some secrets are too good to keep. 

Tabitha might be the only girl in the history of the world who actually gets less popular when she gets hot. But her so-called friends say she's changed, and they've dropped her flat. 

Now Tab has no one to tell about the best and worst thing that has ever happened to her: Joe, who spills his most intimate secrets to her in their nightly online chats. Joe, whose touch is so electric, it makes Tab wonder if she could survive an actual kiss. Joe, who has Tabitha brimming with the restless energy of falling in love. Joe, who is someone else's boyfriend.

Just when Tab is afraid she'll burst from keeping the secret of Joe inside, she finds Life by Committee. The rules of LBC are simple: tell a secret, receive an assignment. Complete the assignment to keep your secret safe. 

Tab likes it that the assignments push her to her limits, empowering her to live boldly and go further than she'd ever go on her own.

But in the name of truth and bravery, how far is too far to go?

My Review:
Reading this book was really great! Tab isn't a perfect person, she makes mistakes. But she does learn from them as the book goes on, so that was really great! Really enjoyed watching her go on this journey!

Honestly, the idea of LBC is tempting. To have assignments to make your life better, with the threat of your secrets coming out as incentive to carry out the assignments, sounds pretty good. Well, the first half. But the way that the assignments were created, and the way that the next anything had to be bigger, not cool!

I felt bad for Tabitha that her friends dumped her because she developed and became interested in make up and boys, saying that she changed and not in a good way. Because that's totally not cool! Body changes like this are based on factors out of your control, and make up and boys are fairly healthy interests for high school ladies!

The way that she brought up all of her issues to light, that was really courageous! And what it sparked was really fantastic! That outpouring of people's thoughts and actions that aren't the best parts of them, was just great, a burden lifted and really emotional! It was great!

Yeah, this book was really fantastic and enjoyable!
