In Case You Missed It

Finished In Case You Missed It by Sarah Darer Littman. I received a copy for review. This review was originally posted in August. 

I’m a huge fan of Sarah Darer Littman and have been since I read Want to go Private? Her books are all incredibly timely/topical and this one is no exception. 
Sammy’s life is pretty typical: she’s busy with friends and school (AP tests, SATs, driving test–does her crush like her back?). It’s stressful but she’s handling it. And then her dad–the CEO for a bank–gets hacked. And, thanks to the cloud, so is she. And everything gets posted online…including her diary. 
I felt so awful for Sammy. Of course there’s a lot of fallout and a lot of humiliation (are you always nice about other people?). And her parents now know everything she’s done wrong. Which isn’t much, honestly; she’s a really good kid. But still, she’s not perfect. 
I feel like Sarah Darer Littman’s biggest strength is writing these incredibly flawed characters that the reader still cheers for. Sammy is the perfect example of this.  She’s not always a good person but there is a world of difference between Sammy at the beginning and Sammy at the end.
