Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose, by Gillian McCain


They call me a freak.
I'm sick of it. It makes me want dangerous, bad things. Drugs-hard drugs-and people who are bad for me, but I don't care, because I'm so lonely and no matter what their intentions are at least they're talking to me...







They say that high school is supposed to be the best time of your life. But what if that's just not true?
More than anything, Mary Rose wants to fit in. To be loved. And she'll do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Even if it costs her her life.


Told through the raw and unflinching diary entries of a real teen, Mary Rose struggles with addiction, bullying, and a deadly secret. Her compelling story will inspire you-and remind you that you're not alone.
