Book Review: Fly on the Wall by E.Lockhart

Fly on the Wall
Author: E. Lockhart
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Pages: 182 pages
RRP: $16.99

At a school where everyone is unique, Gretchen Yee feels ordinary.

Even with her bright red hair, she's still the quiet girl who doesn't talk to anyone at lunch.

Then there are the Art Rats, a group of popular boys. Funny. Sweet. Annoying. Confusing. Especially Titus. Titus is definitely on Gretchen's radar, but she's too scared to make the first move.

If only she could be a fly on the wall, to find out what boys are really like,

This is the story of how one girl's wish came true. 

My review
Thoughts on the book: Fly on the Wall is a quite small book of only 182 pages long and unfortunately for me those 182 pages were too long. I didn't like the book at all and can't quite put my finger on why. I love E. Lockhart's previous books and was really excited to receive this one for review and dove in straight away as it was so short. But whether it was the unrealistic storyline of a girl being left alone in New York by herself why her recently divorced parents go out of town and ends up turning into a fly for a week. And for that whole week no one seems to notice that she is missing or even goes and tries to find out what's wrong. Really?! That's so not right and why a fly? She could have been something much better than a fly. I don't really have much else to say about the book unfortunately but I am still looking forward to reading more of E. Lockhart's books.
