Side Effects May Vary - Julie    Murphy

"So here's the thing: popular people may have status, but the rest of us have power in numbers and, because of that, we have resources.... I guess you could call it, like, the nerd mafia"


That line made me literally laugh out loud because it perfectly describes how I felt about high school. I am not going to lie, I totally fantasized about terrible things happening to the popular kids. As much as I disagree with Alice's motivation I get why she wants revenge. And hey, who's to say people in the same situation wouldn't do the same thing. Alice thinks she is living on borrowed time so why not put some assholes in their place. Life lessons on both sides of that coin.
