Bleed is a story of 10 teenagers, woven together, over the course of a single day.

Nicole's decision to betray her best friend is a shock, mostly to herself. Maria, who believes her only true friends will cut her and make her bleed. Kelly deciides to meet the felon she's been writing since he was convicted. Derik, who can get any girl, except the one he actually wants, until now. Sadie's family is out for the day, leaving her alone in the house, making the snack cabinet a must, seeing how her mother is obsessed with weight. Robby just wants a girl to love him back; a girl to hold him and kiss him and whisper in his ear. Mearl (that's Pearl with an M) wants to actually be from some place. Ginger needs to find one thing to bring that girl down from her high post. Joy is sick and tired of boys messing with her; now it's her turn. Sean needs to decide which girl he likes more.

Grade: A

WOW! This book was pretty amazing! I recommend it to anyone, but just a warning, it is pretty sexual. It was a fast and easy read, and I couldn't stop reading it. It pulled me in from the first sentence. The only thing I disliked was that it was only 1 day in their lives, which makes me really curious to find out what happens the next day with everyone. It leaves me hangin'! Anyway, go read this. It was great.
