I was provided a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review
So really quick... I saved this to be the first book I read on my first iPad mini and I'm so glad I did!!
Holy Amaze-Balls!! Tijan did it! And I knew she would!! I know there was so much hype for this to be the book for the year among us angst-loving Sam+Mason book lovers, but she pulled through with this one. Going into this I had high hopes because it's Tijan and as a reviewer I understand that no matter what she writes there will always be a reason behind why she chose a character to go down that path. that being said I'm accepting the way the book's direction took itself and where Tijan is leading us.
The book starts on Sam's first day of Fallen Crest PUBLIC....dun-dun-dun. She's leaving one pit to jump into a new ditch. She's leaving the Academy Elite behind, but she's getting what Heather, Sam's best girl friend, likes to call the Tommy Princesses. Masonused to hook up with the Tommy P's Queen b*tch Kate. So many new characters it's wonderful! Sam's not only dealing with Kate and her minions, but she's dealing with her growing anxiety over her relationship with Mason. He's about to graduate and move to college where he will probably go pro with football, and she's going to get stuck behind. I think we see a lot of Sam's vulnerability almost coming to the surface, but not quite. We've still go more development on her end.
I LOVED MASON'S POV!!! I was so happy to see it!! He's such a BAD-A**! We see Logan and Nate and how there is tension with them because they're both intrigued with getting Mason's attention. There was so much going on in this book that you wouldn't be able to really get it wrapped around your head unless you were to read the book. And look at that perfect segue...
Overall, I think this book is worth 5 STARS out of 5 STARS. Tijan is living up to her audience's expectations. Will I read more of her books? Oh you bet! Will I recommend this to any romance/teen-angst-loving book reader? Heck YES! Keep up the great writing Tijan!!

Tijan started writing later in life, after she had already graduated college with a different direction in mind and a different degree under her belt. Hitting the brakes on that path, she taught herself how to write a good book and began posting at sites such as Fictionpress, along with Wattpad. After receiving such encouraging messages from readers, she self-published Fallen Crest High and has continued throughout the year. She continues to keep writing NA books!
Kate’s sneer turned into a snarl. “You think you’re funny?”
One of the three added, “Maybe she’s taking lessons from Logan?”
Another snorted. “Probably. She needs all the lessons she can get.”
My smile had stretched from ear to ear now. It was genuine, too. “Is this another warning from you? I thought you moved past the cliché insults and name calling. Oh wait. You said lessons. Yes, that’s referencing that I’m dumb. That’s another cliché insult.” With my hand in the air, I lifted a finger with each point. “I’m ugly. I’m dumb. I have too much sex. Those are the three main ones most simpletons use to insult others. The clothes and the mannequin gave me hope. I thought you were starting to progress, but then I heard that you’ve already done that before. It’s recycled material. You guys need to find new stuff. You know what they say about comedians?” At their blank faces, I nodded. “What I expected. If they use old material, the act is boring. People move on. If you’re going to keep drawing fresh fear from everyone, you need new stuff.” I stood and patted Kate’s head. “You can do it. I believe in you.”
Logan stood by the door and held it open. Mason came in behind him. Both found me immediately. I wondered who had notified them, but then Kate grabbed my arm. She twisted it and got into my face. Her hand tightened on my arm and she lowered her voice, “You have until the end of the day to drop out of school. This is the last warning.”
A taunt rose to my tongue, but I swallowed it. The jokes were gone.
Three thoughts happened at the same time. David’s image flashed again. “Fuck it,” came next. Third, when I knew what I was going to do, I thought, “Let’s see how this goes.”
Kate’s eyes widened as she watched the myriad of expressions before she saw my intent. Her hand let me go, and she started to back away, but it was too late. My hand latched onto hers instead, and I took one second to comment, “Bet you weren’t expecting this,” I said before my other hand grabbed the back of her head and used all my body weight to slam her head into the table.
