Reviews & Summaries
That being said, I did find it very interesting to follow the characters' development through the story. The book also has a surprisingly satisfying ending despite looking like it's headed for disaster.
I read it in a college-level English class dealing with YA literature, and reactions from my classmates ranged from love to hate and everything in between. This book definitely isn't for everyone, but if you enjoy YA lit it's worth a try.
