Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

To say my friend died is one thing.
To say my friend screwed me over and then died five months later is another.
-Vera Dietz
A.S. King's 2010 Printz honor book is at once a funny, smart, edgy, gripping story about frienship and a searing portrait of high school bullying. Give to fans of Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why and Tim Tharp's The Spectacular Now. If you only read one young adult novel this year, make it this one. Grade 9+
