52 Reasons to Hate My Father definitely portrayed a great and unique story that had so many elements to it. Not only was it about a spoiled, rich kid being taking down a peg or two through a reality check, but it was also a story about a torn father-daughter relationship that went through many trials and tribulations to make it to where it was at the end of the book. I actually teared up at one point during the whole father-daughter mending process. It felt incredibly real; way to go, Jessica Brody.” – The Printed YA Word
