Mindi Scott

   Live Through This


From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect.

    I dunno... maybe an 8? I had a pretty good time in high school, though by the end I was definitely ready for it to be over.

  1. Anubha said...:

    I will give it 8... that time was amazing I was finally able to connect with whole class but my own friends group scattered all are in touch with me but not with each other I don't even know till date why exactly my friends are behaving like this. And one more regret is that I did not took part in many co-curricular activities...
    Apart from that I had an amazing time :)

  1. 1... I hated it with a PASSION!

  1. bn100 said...:

    I'd say 8

  1. 3. I dealt with bullies in Elementary school so I went to private school for middle school. My parents let me choose to go to public or private school for high school and I chose public. Sad part was, all my old bullies were still there just meaner and more malicious. I was shy, quiet, wore glasses (since got contacts), was smart, and was always reading... I was an easy target.

  1. Berenice said...:

    I don't know. Its been almost 9 years since I graduated high school. I hardly remember it, hehe. If I were to rate it,] I would say an 8, maybe a 9. I had a good time. But if I could go back I would definitely change some things.

  1. meryvamp said...:

    Hm, about a 6 or 7. It wasn't unpleasant but I wouldn't want to go through it again.

  1. I'm still going to high school. I'll give it 5 or 6. I'm the quiet type who doesn't enjoy pointless chatter or having too many people around me, so others tend to stay away from me. On the other hand, a part of me feels I'm being left out; that part seeks company of others. I've been bullied, but not anymore. Still, it has left a mark on me (I think that is why I keep away from people). I don't hate people though, being all tolerant as always, I just have my moments of sadness. So overall, high school has it's downsides, but it's not all bad.

  1. Cassi said...:

    I'm still in high school, but so far I would go for 9 or 10.

  1. My high school experience was a seven. I was a bit of a geek, but I had some of my most memorable times with some pretty awesome friends. So not much to complain about. :)

  1. Isabel C said...:

    Haven't gotten to high school yet, but middle school's been a 4 at best.

  1. Brooke said...:

    Probably a 6... good times but not good enough that I didn't want out 6 months early.

  1. I would say it was a 5, ok but not great.

  1. vanessa L said...:

    I'd say 9, but then again, the memories are still fresh.

  1. I'm still in the middle of my high school career, but as of now I'd rate it a 5 or 6. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either.

  1. I think a 7. Some things I'd love to have a do-over for.

  1. Hmm...I'm gonna say a 7? I had a fairly good experience, but looking back, I could have done a few things differently that would have made a dramatic influence for the better.

  1. No one has true fun in high school. So I'll say 6. I took on a lot of classes and it was hard for me to juggle all my subjects. I was stressed out the whole time.
    But I was home school and it only took me two years to complete high school and I only had to do school for a few hours every day so I can't really complain.

  1. I would say 5. I liked school from 9th to 10th and then by 11th, I didn't enjoy it as much.

  1. I'm still in high school so I cannot rate my experience in high school

  1. Jillyn said...:

    Probably around an 8. It was an alright time.

  1. 1 for sure. I was made fun of endlessly in high school and it got so bad that I had to drop out, so I started college at 16. It was bad :( Kids can be brutal

  1. I'd give it a 3 cuz most of high school sucked!!! That's why I got my G.E.D.

  1. Christine said...:

    I'd say probably an 8 or so. I had a good experience, but looking back, I wish I'd let myself relax and have more fun.

  1. 7 or 8: I had fabulous teachers and got along with most everyone in my classes, but my softball coach was rough, and there were a few too many group projects.

  1. I'd say an 8. I had great friends and we had a great time but who doesn't get picked on in high school? Senior year was probably a 10 though because all of the cliques disappeared and everyone became friends.

  1. Meghan said...:

    Probably a 6. I went to two different high schools. We moved after my freshman year and it sucked. The second high school I went to to was a fourth the size of my previous school and it was nearly as academically challenging. Plus, I was a good girl in high school. It wasn't nearly as fun as it could be. Since then, I've bumped into people from high school and they don't even know who I am! I've gotten hit on since then by the guys who wouldn't even talk to me in high school. Haha... at least I'm not one of those people still sleeping next to their prom photos.

  1. maybe 5 or 6...
    i hada good time in my senior high school...sometimes :)
    thx u for the giveaway...

  1. I think I'm about a 5...

  1. 1! I hated school. Thanks for the giveaway. <3

  1. I'm still in HS, but I'll probably rate it 6-7 :D

  1. I would rate my high school experience an 8. I could have had a better experience but honestly I had a lot of fun!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    My email: mrsjtucker2012[at]gmail[dot]com

  1. Probably a 7. I enjoyed certain aspects of high school, but the drama/cliques I definitely could have done without!

  1. I'm still in HS. Probably a 2 :(

  1. Cohlina said...:

    I'm in my last year of high school. 7-8 as of now. Because I'm included in the higher section called Special Science Class. I feel pressured sometimes but I know that I'll feel thankful when I go to college. :)

  1. C. said...:

    I'd rate my high school experience a 7. I liked hanging out with friends and enjoyed the subjects. However, I wish I had done stuff like joining a club or sport, just to be more outgoing.

  1. Sam said...:

    I'd say maybe an 8. I did not like high school in the sense that I was excited to leave and head off to university, but I still had a good time. There was no one that I knew of that disliked me and I had a lot of really close friends that I had a great time with. No high school sob story here but it's not a part of my life that I think I would regard as the best. It was an experience that everyone goes through and mine felt average to me.

  1. Christine N. said...:

    I would give it a 7. Senior year was really bad but I loved my freshman and junior year.

  1. karin said...:

    Can't rate it yet-not done
