Hyacinth Girls by Lauren Frankel
Joyce and Rebecca were best friends growing up. They shared everything until Joyce falls in love with Curtis. Through a series of unforeseen circumstances, Rebecca ends up raising Joyce and Curtis's little girl, Callie.
Like all mothers, Rebecca wants to believe that Callie is perfect. But what if she isn't? One day while at work, she gets a phone call saying that there has been a bullying incident at school. The principal and the teacher tell Rebecca that Callie has been bullying another girl. Callie and her friends say it's the other way around. Who is telling the truth? What is really going on between the two girls?
This book raises some great questions about the power of social media to negatively impact our lives and more importantly, do we really know our children??
I gave it 4 stars.
