image 500x375 One Star Review Guess Who? (#16)

The main reason for my dislike is that [character] is a terrible role model. We, as readers, are constantly reminded of [character]‘s philosophy of vengeance, an eye for an eye, for the people (and there are many) who may have rubbed her the wrong way. This includes her classmates, her brother, her mother, her father, and her principal.
