2.5 stars (I ended up liking it at the end, but for the majority of the book I thought it was ok)

I feel mean rating this book this low, as I did think it was a nice, sweet book with interesting characters. The only thing is I read this 8 years or so too late. I was given it as a present when I was in my early to mid-teens (I'm now 24) and it never got read, so now I'm working my way through some books I have had for years. If I read it when I was given it I would have rated it higher.
