Sometimes your life just needs a little jolt.
This is what Evie's new friend Francesca tells her, and soon enough, Evie's life has had something more like an earthquake. Francesca thinks life is dull unless you go after everything you want and say everything on your mind all the time--and sometimes that includes giving other people a little behind the scenes help to give them what she thinks they want.
Evie can't always tell if she's horrified or fascinated by everything Francesca convinces her to do, but ultimately, she comes to see friendship--and life--in a whole new light.
Evie was a typical teen going through life trying to fit in with out making a big splash. That all changed when Francesca walked into her life. Francesca is a a little strange but so wild and adventurous she seems to shake some life into Evie. Evie's friends on the other hand didn't seem to trust the new comer. They seemed to sense her immaturity and they believed she wasn't always to truthful. This Is Me From Now On was a quick paced book. I enjoyed the lighthearted and funny nature of the book. It took me no time to fly right though it. I really enjoyed the fun in the book. It made me realize that life comes in all shapes and sizes and is happening all around you. Enjoy it while you can. I would recommend this to those who like a quick easy read.
