It all started with a little secret... Zoe Von Lynskey is a typical 13-year-old girl with an idyllic life and a bright future ahead of her-that is, until her 16-year-old brother is accidently shot by his friend Kirk Anderson. But is Josh's death truly an accident? Zoe suspects not. Kirk's parents and Zoe's parents are friends, and the two dads work for the same company, but Kirk has always been a bully to Zoe. With her big brother no longer there to protect her, she is now alone and vulnerable. When Zoe makes a fatal decision to protect herself against Kirk, her world begins to crumble under the weight of her secret. Her computer diary is her only confidant as she documents the wrenching depression, anxiety, partying, pregnancy, and suicide attempt that result. Everyone Has Their Little Secrets is a sharply observant and moving portrait of a teenager grappling with very adult problems-a stunning coming-of-age novel that pulls no punches.

We need more books on bullying in my opinion. This book was sort of hard to get into it may have just been me but it's very slow and not an attention getter.
I will say it needs to be told bullying is so bad this day and time so I'm happy that someone took the time to write such a book.
I gave the book 3.5 stars based on the writing and the not holding my attention I had to force myself to read it.
I was given a copy by the author for my honest review.
