review 1: I truly loved this book and even though Blaze seemed like a silly character, I honestly confessed that I could relate to her whole experience of having an obssession with a popular boy at school. I felt all of her emotions particularly the times when she was dissed by Mark, it brought back some relatable memories of my own. Somehow I was glad because she had a supportive best-friend and little brother, Josh, who I had come to adore. My only complain is there were too much exaggerated descriptions and too much references to comics that interrupted the flow of the story. I understand that Blaze is a comic geek but perhaps the whole comic thing can be toned down a bit so the story would sound a little casual for none-comic fans like me who happened to read this book. Overall,... more Blaze was an endearing story of finding inner-strength, self-confidence and most of all, true love that often present when we least expect it.
review 2: I really enjoyed this book, the nerd girl in me loved every page. Blaze is a girl who wants to be seen and desperate for a guy to want her, and tries to find ways to be seen by a guy- a douche named Mark, I really wanted to punch him in the face one time (no, a lot of times). She wanted the spotlight, she got it in the form of her wearing something left to the imagination which has been sent to Mark which he puts on the Internet for all the world to see. No one should ever have to go through what Blaze when she had to go through the aftermath of 'the post'. But this book teaches you about yourself and you shouldn't care what ANYONE thinks about you, whether they are speaking good things or bad things. less

It's a really thrilling book. Great for young adults. But a tad graphic
good fun quick read. really enjoyed the comic inside the book.
I instantly fell in love with Josh at his first appearance.
