One Eighty by Marie James (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5 Stars)

This book was so freaking interesting.

I was expecting a kinda cringy Bully romance, where we saw a major douche do all kinds of wrong only to redeem himself in the end after some light groveling, etc, etc.

This is not what One Eighty is about.

As the title suggests, this book is all about flipping the script.
I really don’t want to spoil anything, because the journey is where it’s at with this book. But in the first few chapters (especially being inside Danton’s head), I was like: hell no. This boy is never coming out of my sh*t list.


And then, as the story moved forward my heart was breaking so much for Danton and Piper. But at the same time, I had all the butterflies in my stomach, and I just was rooting so hard for them. Piper did deserve so much better, but Danton also deserved to be the best he could with the new circumstances he found himself in.


Just a quick disclaimer and some trigger warnings: This book deals with extreme bullying and self-harm. As a person who has dealt with cutting throughout my entire life, I do not think it’s healthy to assume that a hero/love interest can immediately swoop in and cure that. Although support from loved ones is extremely important, if you struggle with self-harm do seek advice/help on how to cope and heal ❤️

Overall I loved One Eighty, it was everything I didn’t know that I wanted from a high school Bully Romance. BUT, although this doesn’t necessarily end with what I would call a cliffhanger there were MANY unanswered questions, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen to both Danton and Piper moving forward.
