Parker Fadley (Cracked Up to Be, by Courtney Summers)Read about another entry on the list.
This book was pretty much my gateway into my love for the modern incarnation of YA, and more than five years later, Parker is still one of my favorite characters. Once upon a time, she was a popular and powerful cheerleader, and an utterly adored girlfriend and best friend. Now she’s…well, not much of anything, or at least that’s what she’s going for. But just because she’s trying to detach herself from everyone these days doesn’t mean they’ll let her, no matter how cruel she is. (And she is hilariously cruel, and cruelly hilarious.)
Cracked Up to Be also appears on Dahlia Adler's list of five books for Veronica Mars fans.
