How it Ends
How It Ends is a novel about two girls named Jessie and Annie and how they became friends. They are starting tenth grade this year. Jessie is nervous because of a certain girl named Courtney. She and her friend Larissa had ditched her in seventh grade because of her hairstyle. Everyone thought that she was a lesbian. So she never had any friends until a girl named Annie came along. Both Jessie and Annie were in the same math and gym class. Annie noticed Jessie at her locker and asked if she wanted to sit together at lunch. During lunch, Courtney appeared with her friends. Jessie was so upset she walked away as fast as she could. Later, Jessie came over to Annie’s house. She expected Dora the Explorer and Barbies all over her room since Annie hadn’t redone her room since she was a kid. Annie started to draw a picture of Jessie. In science class a few days later, Jessie developed a crush on someone named Scott Hutchins. He also just happens to be Courtney’s ex-boyfriend. Unfortunately, Annie had to work with Courtney as lab partners. Another thing you should know about Jessie is that she has an anxiety issue. So she needs certain pills to help her calm down in situations. She was sneaking into her parents bathroom to get more. Her mother caught her and started yelling and making such a big deal about it. She dragged Jessie to her doctor for an evaluation and a prescription refill. Annie and Scott were really liking each other and were getting closer. But Annie didn’t know that Jessie had a crush on Scott. You’ll have to read on to find out what happens.
I find this book to be dramatic and interesting. Jessie and Annie have many ups and downs during their friendship. Annie also wanted to be friends with the people who bullied Jessie. Another thing that happened in the book was that Annie got pregnant.
I give this book 4 stars. I will also warn you that this book has swearing in it. But it’s a good book about teenage drama and frenemies. I normally read funny adventure books or mysteries, but I enjoyed this book. It wasn’t slow or boring at all. It was very emotional. I think that this was a great story about friendship and what happens when you don’t treat your friends well. I would recommend How It Ends to people who like reading about things that happen in real life.
