A Devil and Her Love Song by Miyoshi Tomori

This is a really promising series. This is the first volume, this book is the story of Maria, the new girl who was expelled from a Catholic school because she hit a teacher. I didn't actually find out why she hit her teacher; Maria doesn't seem to be a very violent person in the book.
She also faces  some vicious bullying by her new classmates, Maria decides to give herself one last chance to be for herself by trying out Yusuke's approach of putting a lovely twist on everything. She even starts a romance with Yusuke's best friend Shin. This is book 1 of 13, so I imagine it will get more interesting as I continue reading the series. Below there is a youtube video where you can read number 1 of the series.

The most interesting thing about the book or Maria, is that to me, she decided to change and focus more on herself instead of  trying to be like the popular girls. She wants to be able to love her self , and that she needs help.

My only complaint is that the dialogue seems to be a little simple at times. But overall I will definitely recommend the book, because it focuses on a very big issue in our school system, which is Bullying.

I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but the cover of this book really called my attention. I like these types of books were a character is a young adult because the character will become relatable to other young adults. I like the fact that Maria being a young adult, she likes herself for who she is. Some young adults are not happy with who they, especially when they are being bullied. It is great to read about how someone copes with being bullied, and seeing how they deal with this. I like your post, but I would recommed that you add some more links to provide more insight information about the book.
