Cameron Bright's reputation can be summed up in one word: b*tch. It's no surprise she's queen bee at her private L.A. high school--she's beautiful, talented, and notorious for her brutal honesty. But when she slips up in front of her crush, Andrew, any affection he may have had for her quickly fades. To win him over, Cameron resolves to tame herself, much like Shakespeare's infamous shrew, Katherine. If she makes amends with everyone she's ever wronged, Andrew will have to take notice. Thus, Cameron begins her apology tour with Brendan, the guy whose social life she single-handedly destroyed. At first, Brendan isn't so quick to forgive, but slowly he warms to her when they connect over a computer game he's developing. To Cameron's amazement, she actually enjoys hanging out with Brendan; he appreciates her honesty in a way Andrew never did, and she's left wondering: maybe you shouldn't have to compromise who you are for the kind of love you deserve.

A little cutesy, but with some added depth. I enjoyed it, but it's not a stand out among the genre for me.

This was really quite good, I don't get why she thought she was popular if everyone except Morgan and Elle hated her😒.......
I didn't like most of the characters; apart from Paige, who is quite a cool, independent, female.😍😍
I also liked ....errr..... what's Paige's brother called?😑
I know it starts with B. Anyway! I liked him two😁😁
FYI. I don't really expect anyone to actually read all of this🤙

Review excerpt: "'If I’m Being Honest' is a contemporary YA version of 'The Taming of the Shrew' with a cotton candy surface and surprising hidden depths. Our story begins in a prep school in Los Angeles. Cameron is super popular. Query – how come in media ('Heathers', 'Mean Girls') popular girls don’t seem to have many actual friends? It’s obvious from the first page that no one, with the possible exception of two characters named Morgan and Elle, actually like her. So how can she be called popular if everyone hates her? I didn’t understand high school when I was there and hindsight hasn’t made things any more clear."
