Review: Life by Commitee

I absolutely love Corey Ann Haydy. I've loved her since about the beginning of time, so it's easy to say that I had rather high expectations for this book. And, as usual, she did not disappoint me.
Tabitha might be the only girl in the history of the world who actually gets less popular when she gets hot. But her so-called friends say she’s changed, and they’ve dropped her flat. Now Tab has no one to tell about the best and worst thing that has ever happened to her: Joe, who spills his most intimate secrets to her in their nightly online chats. Joe, whose touch is so electric, it makes Tab wonder if she could survive an actual kiss. Joe, who has Tabitha brimming with the restless energy of falling in love. Joe, who is someone else’s boyfriend.Just when Tab is afraid she’ll burst from keeping the secret of Joe inside, she finds Life by Committee. The rules of LBC are simple: tell a secret, receive an assignment. Complete the assignment to keep your secret safe. Tab likes it that the assignments push her to her limits, empowering her to live boldly and go further than she’d ever go on her own. But in the name of truth and bravery, how far is too far to go?

Summary:Tabitha has been basically exiled by everyone in her school the moment she becomes hot. She's not sure why, it's not her fault. The only thing that's good in her life is Joe. Joe is sweet to her, he understands her, the only problem is that he has a beautiful girlfriend who is loved by everybody. Tabitha is alone and almost depressed, and she's simply looking for a way to make her life better. One day she finds Life by Committee, and after that, her entire live begins to change. She gets tasks that she has to complete, involving her life, or she'll get kicked out. She tests herself to see how much she can accomplish, until, things start to get complicated... 

PROS: Life by Committee is very relatable, everyone has things in their life that they don't understand and they wish they could change, and this is a girl who does something about those things. I loved all of the characters, they were all very unique and they tied well into the story as a whole. Corey writes in a relaxing style; it's very nice and easy to read. There wasn't a moment in this book where I got bored, or even wanted to put down. 
CONS: This book was awesome, this book was great, but, all in all in wasn't brilliant, it wasn't life changing. 
Rate: THIS BOOK, THIS BOOK IS HAPPINESS. 4.5 out of 5 books (because books are better than stars).
