2010 book 257

A.S. King's Please Ignore Vera Dietz
Vera Dietz's best friend Charlie--who she secretly loved--died a few months ago, but she had lost him to the Detentionheads long before that. Still, she's haunted by what she knows about the night he died, all while dealing with the usual teen crap--her Dad, her crappy job, the cute guy at her crappy job, and school. The story flashes back and forth in time, tracing her and Charlie's relationship as well as her dealing with his death. I found the end a bit lackluster but enjoyed the story and characters quite a bit. B+.
