    Disclaimer I know the author she has been to my store to do signings and I have hung out with her at book shows She's a great person and a great author This does not sway this review my opinions are my own I did not receive this book for the review Though it was offered I had already purchased my own copy What can I say I love her writingOk disclaimer done onto the reviewThis book takes place in high school in NJ shout out The MCs are high school students teachers parents etc There is a love interest who if he were a few years older would SO be my book BF He is SO SWEET Seriously if only he were a little older which means there is some physical stuff going on so older readers No home runs but thoughts about it and some intense make out sessions Also some scary threats and some scenes of violence that fits with the storyline The female MC Casey wants to be an investigative reporter so she does what she can to dig up the dirt on what is going on in the school to print in the school paper I don't remember my high school ever being THAT busy with all sorts of things going on but then again I lived in a cave Never saw drugs or drinking or anything like that and I know now that it was there I was just oblivious I'm going to be honest I'm not into gossip or unearthing the truths at all costs like Casey is She's a bit on the obsessive side BUT she and all of the other characters are written extremely well and I don't have to agree with the MC in order to enjoy the book but that's why the four and not five stars The characters were ALL living and breathing to me They felt real if a bit over the top at times but hormones That's kind of how it rolls when one is a teen I also LOVED that it took place in NJ Whut WHUT REPRESENT and that it wasn't at NJ's expense Vic the love interest was patient and sweet and kind and all sorts of sexy The PERFECT guy to help level Casey out She was really kind of mean to him but that was because she wanted to focus on her career and not waste her time on boys Which makes sense because boys suck everything that is precious in your life out and want all of your attention so instead of going to grad school you get married to a low life POS and realize you scuttled your yacht for a rowboat with one oar Et hem Continuing on So as I was saying you can't blame Casey for ignoring boys Until Vic comes along and she realizes he's not a boy he's a man SIGH ON A HORSE SIIIIIIIIGH Or in my case a JetSki heading to a lovely tropical island D So this is a solid 4 star book I just don't get the obsession Casey has with being an investigative reporter but I respect her drive despite being threatened and harassed for it Her friends were solid even if her family wasn't Worth the read if you like mystery contemporary YA with some romance thrown in for good measure

    Lost Reputation is a must read Forget the fact that it’s young adult even though that part is fabulous if you enjoy a good mystery this should be on your list to read

  3. Ashley McLeo Ashley McLeo says:

    Lost Reputation is an easy fun YA novel with romance and mystery What I liked best about this novel was the main characters voice It's believable as she's pretty sarcastic like a lot of teens I know including myself as a teen and knows what she wants but flip flops on that a lot especially when she's considering her love interest Totally relatable I feel like I did that a lot as a teenager I also love how the main character interacts with her two best friends one her cousin the other her friend Charli It's very sweet to see the closeness of their bond All in all I can see the characters in real life which is exactly what I want when I read a novel The story was also fun a little bit of mystery a little bit of romance or denial of romance depends on where you are in the book and a few threats to give tension If you're a parent looking for an appropriate not too sexual or violent book for your teen or an adult that also enjoys YA mystery romance this may just be the book for you

    There may be drugs in the cafeteria food and a teacher may be having a relationship with a student That alone kept me reading but Casey really makes it hard to put the book down There are several twists and revelations at the end let me tell you I didn’t get them all right

  5. Chris Dunham Chris Dunham says:

    An thrilling take on rumors gossip and conspiracy theories Casey writes a column for the school newspaper and finds herself getting deeper and deeper in trouble as truths are revealed and lies threaten not only her friends but her life as well This story unravels with the help of her best friend Charlie cousin Mase love interest Vic and his brother Hunter A great YA read

  6. Bella James Bella James says:

    Miller pulls no punches in introducing feisty protagonist Casey The story arc had me hooked from beginning to end and for me the writing comes up with a definite and well deserved five starsDark at times I loved the seductive theme of rumours and wild conspiracy theoriesperfectly indulgent I particularly liked the way Miller has offered us a less than perfect teenager to contend with in Casey She is intelligent feisty and certainly has own way of doing things rightly or wronglyIt is a personal choice but I am tired of the wishy washy teenage female protagonists YA isn't about conformity and likeability it's about keeping it real and I love these new voices that capture the bold teenage heart so acutelyI look forward to reading from this talented author

  8. Jackie Jackie says:

    This was very interesting it was full of suspense and mystery of trying to figure out who was sending the threatening messages to Casey and other stuff at school that Casey was investigating like the whole student teacher relationship where the teacher ended up pregnant now who's the baby daddy are they really spiking the cafeteria food with drugs etcAt the beginning of the book it seemed like half a dozen people could be the suspects but as time went on the list started to narrow but at the same time it became complicated the Casey dived into the sort of conspiracy that she loves At times I felt a Veronica Mars vibe coming off of her but then Casey would go back to being a hormonal tad bit narcissistic teenager that we all love to hate and can't help but roll our eyes at her naivety Still she took Taekwondo classes and can hold her end in a fight Plus the side characters Charli and Hunter were totally adorable as a coupleThe romance was sweet if a little annoying at times Or like Casey was annoying She would almost always be thinking about Vic's body or how sexy and hot and perfect he was but then mention that she shouldn't be interested in him because she had a plan to graduate and go to college blah blah blah All the bipolarness was giving me whiplash On the other hand Vic was also a problem He kept going after her even though Casey had a boyfriend actually she pretended her cousin Mace was her boyfriend to turn away guys who bothered her and after Vic revealed his past about how people told a lie that he cheated on his ex girlfriend I find it highly unbelievable that he would go and make Casey cheat on her boyfriend even if it's fake but he doesn't know that by kissing her and asking her out on dates Like seriously you were burned because of a rumor that said you cheated on your girlfriend and now you're basically doing the same thing that can ruin some other guy like the false rumor ruined you?? Smh If only Casey would be like a normal teenager and admitted that she liked him soonerAs for the actual culprit I didn't see that coming I had my theories about who the baby daddy was and I was correct but the teacher and the other thing that pertained to them boy was that a surprise The ending was when all the action happened and everything got revealed but it seemed a little too rushed like the author piled everything in one chapter and just wanted to finish the story Oh and she kept bumping into everyone literally walking into them and then being all surprised about who she bumped into Let's just stay things felt repetitive by the end of the book Either way the mystery and suspense were intriguing and I rather much enjoyed reading it

    425 starsLost Reputation is a whirlwind YA romancesemi mystery novel starring Casey who is allegedly obsessed with conspiracy theories gossip and spreading the truth When she gets caught up with Vic one of her classmates her obsession takes a deadly turn for the worseThere are a lot of things I liked about this novel namely that the characters are so vivid and varied Character is the most important aspect to me so having easy to remember people makes for a fascinating read The mystery is fairly well written though I have to admit that the twist of whodunnit didn't surprise me so much as make me a touch uncomfortable Not that it was an easy guess I think I just expected a little less of a convoluted reason for it allThe dialogue is very natural and pulls no punches There is a LOT of swearing in this novel so parents buying this for their teenagers might consider reserving it for older teens especially since things also get a little hot and heavy between Casey and her romantic lead NOT explicit but the implications are very much there But it reads very well and you can hear the characters' voices in your head as you read Ms Miller certainly as an aptitude for dialogue and it showsAt the end of the day the only reason I felt the need to knock off one star was just Casey herself A lot of her actions puzzled me She's strong willed but also brash and brazen and almost narcissistic in a way Even in the end where she needs to learn her lesson and move on with life it seems to arise from self preservation than acknowledging that her actions have conseuences on OTHER people as well Yes she does acknowledge it but her life literally has to be in jeopardy before she takes the threats against her seriously I think many readers will love her but I found her to be a little too much personally It all comes down to the readers' taste She'll definitely shine with young women who always crave to be so strong and vocal it just doesn't do anything for me and since she's the narrator some points had to be knocked offIn the end would I recommend this? Yes to older teens and adults It's a sassy driven story with vibrant characters and a strong voice Love her or hate her Casey leaves her mark exactly as a reporter should To that end Ms Miller did not fail to deliver
