Autumn Falls by Bella Thorne
After her father dies Autumn moves with her family across the country. She was one of the popular kids at her former school but she quickly makes an enemy of queen bee Reenzie, especially after cute Sean shows her some attention. Autumn's grandmother gives her a journal from her father saying that it will change Autumn's life. Autumn begins using it herself, recording her thoughts and wishes and strangely, those wishes begin coming true. Is she receiving help from her departed father or is it all just a coincidence?
I somehow missed that Bella Thorne is a teen star until I was done with this book which is probably just as well since it might've made me analyze this differently. The story is predictable but solid middle school fiction with just a hint of something deeper than the main theme.
