Love Young Adult (YA) genre? Or, have too much free time at hand? Or, got bored with reading making-sense books and just want to dip into totally non-serious chick lit genre of books? Well, here is the one for you!

I was a Bitch, written by Emily Ruben, has all the recipe of what teenagers feel like, to expand any seemingly innocuous thing into drama and movie like panorama. Here, the main protagonist loses two years of her memory. Will she get it back? Or the story will be like the K-series drama that unfolds on melodramatic Indian television?

The book is very very easy to read, which one can read, sleep, wake up, and the story will still be pacing around at almost the same slow pace. But this book finds its innocence in its characters, and the seemingly fluttering romance where monkeys jump. Slangs are kept at the minimal, however the book trying to explain a lot of stuff (with a sense that it went through censorship) was quite exhausting.

Ok as a one time go. And again, repeating, read my first para to understand who does this book really cater to!

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
What if you forgot the last two years of your life?

After a horrific accident Lacey Jones wakes up from a two month long coma only to realize she’s lost all memory of the last two years. In that time, she turned from a wallflower into the Queen Bee of her high school: Gorgeous, popular, girlfriend of the hottest jock, wanted by every guy, and feared by every girl.

She became The Bitch, but has no memory of it.

Together with the mysterious and attractive Finn, she starts to put together the pieces of the puzzle that was her life.
Will she go back to being a bitch or will she turn her life around?
