Viviana Rabinovich-Lowe, aka Viv, was a model student and daughter for most of her life. As she headed toward the penultimate year of her high school career, nevertheless, her life began falling apart. The beginning of the end was when she fell in love with the wrong guy and trusted him with a rather personal (::ahem:: nude) photo of herself. After the breakdown that resulted from the photo being shared all over social media, Viv’s life started to unravel even further… Her parents no longer trusted her, she didn’t really have many friends, and panic attacks crept up out of nowhere. Because her grades started to suffer, too, she feared that she would never get into a good college and had ruined her life entirely. And, just when it seemed things couldn’t get any worse, Viv realized that her parents’marriage was beyond saving — but had no idea how to break the news to her mother.
Not only does this story serve as a great warning of the dangers of sexting, but it is also a great examination of the power of love, trust, friendship, and self-forgiveness. I can only hope this book makes it into the hands of the young people who need it.
