Waiting on Wednesday (17): Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett

From Goodreads:
Rose Zarelli, self-proclaimed word geek and angry girl, has some CONFESSIONS to make... #1: I'm livid all the time. Why? My dad died. My mom barely talks. My brother abandoned us. I think I'm allowed to be irate, don't you?
#2: I make people furious regularly. Want an example? I kissed Jamie Forta, a badass guy who "might" be dating a cheerleader. She is now enraged and out for blood. Mine.
#3: High school might as well be Mars. My best friend has been replaced by an alien, and I see red all the time. (Mars is red and "seeing red" means being angry-get it?)
Here are some other vocab words that describe my life: Inadequate. Insufferable. Intolerable.
(Don't know what they mean? Look them up yourself.) (Sorry. That was rude.)

So many female protagonists nowadays seem so docile, rarely expressing intense emotions unless the author wants to make her seem "edgy" or emotional. What I like about this book is that, right from the start, Rose describes herself as angry. And it sounds like she should be! She has things in her life she has a right to be upset about, and Rozett has written Rose to experience more real emotions than are often found in female main characters today.
