Elise really is so self-aware, so clear on how she feels and why...I can see where being in high school can kind of screw with that - make you think that you need to look a certain way, act a certain way...She tries to fit in, but I don't think she tries very hard, because who really wants to be someone they're not? She finally finds something she's good at, makes some new friends, finds a guy (who's a douchebag, but that's later), and starts to figure out that she has a place in the world, and she's comfortable there. Most of her observations and sentiments are spot on, though some of her interactions with her family seem to be her pretending to be someone else. I thought it was a really decent book.
