The Manifesto on How to be Interesting was in no way what I expected. It starts off very jolly and funny, but as you get near the end, you get to see the depth within it. Somehow, Holly Bourne has managed to write a funny, smart book, which is also very sad and deep.
Bree, the main character is a handful. She is funny and has a great sense of humour, but she has a tough life and a secret that makes her seem darker (and more interesting). As the book goes on she makes terrible decisions, which makes you want to rip her out and yell at her (I was so annoyed that I had to put the book down and put my head in my hands in annoyance), but she also understands so much more than not many seventeen year olds understand. She knows what she wants to do with her life and sacrifices everything to make that happen.
This books is amazing and changes your view on life and people themselves.
