I'm not easily offended, but it took only 10 minutes for this book to alienate me so thoroughly that I returned it. The review system forces me to give stars, which might not be fair given that I haven't listened to the whole book, but be warned: frequent and gratuitous use of really bad language, gratuitous sexual detail, slut-shaming, snarky, unlikeable main character.
You might like it, but know what you're buying. REally not suitable for younger YA readers.
This book reminded me a lot of the movie Mean Girls with a splash of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The hallmarks of adolescence are all present including the typical high school social hierarchies and multiple love interests. Anika, our protagonist, struggles with remaining the second-most popular girl at school behind "mean girl" Becky Vilhauer or standing up for herself and owning her uniqueness - regardless of how this could affect in her social life. I loved the story and found myself looking forward to each new chapter. Anatomy of a Misfit is a great choice for anyone looking for an entertaining tale about the microcosm of high school and how roles are created, developed, and even mutated for the good or bad.
