Kate Elliot isn't trying to fit in – that's the whole point of being a goth, isn't it?Now here is Perfect 10 Member Nicole's review of I'll Tell You Mine:
Everything about her – from her hair to her clothes – screams different and the girls at her school give her a wide berth. How can Kate be herself, really herself, when she's hiding her big secret? The one that landed her in boarding school in the first place. She's buried it down deep but it always seems to surface.
But then sometimes your soul mates sneak up on you in the most unlikely of places. Like Norris Grammar Boarding School for Girls, where's she's serving a life sentence, no parole, because her parents kicked her out.
So, how do you take that first step and reveal your secrets when you're not sure that people want to see the real you?
I'LL TELL YOU MINE was a very truthful and refreshing account of a girl who is sent to boarding school due to family problems that she's caused. I really enjoyed reading about the dynamics of the family and discovering bits and pieces of the main character's past, and of course, I find it hard to resist books with boarding schools in them (who doesn't?)!
The book was simple but effective, and I formed huge emotional attachments to the characters in the story--they were so real, how could I not? I'LL TELL YOU MINE was an enjoyable and truthful contemporary read that really grew on me, and I would recommend it to many.
