Review- Goth Girl Rising

I have been eagerly awaiting this book for a while and was finally able to get my hands, er, eyes on a (completely legal) digital copy. (I still want the book!)

Goth Girl Rising follows Kyra after she is released from the mental hospital after attempting to commit suicide. When she returns, she expects things to be exactly like they were before- particularly that Fanboy is still an outcast. When she discovers that he is anything but, she gets pissed and wants revenge.

Goth Girl is a sequel of sorts to The Astonishing Adventure of Fanboy and Goth Girl, but this one is told from Kyra's point of view. There were times when I felt sorry for her and times I wanted to throttle her for being so self centered by thinking everyone is against her and nothing is her fault.

I did like how the book ended, but I wanted MORE!
