This book was just meh for me. I didn't find any of the characters likeable and the story was too predictible for me. I know there was suppose to be larger message somewhere in this book, but the story seemed rather muddled for me and the ending kind of fell apart. Fairly enjoyable but not something that I would ever read again.
Someone had told me this was the greatest book ever. But it was just ok. I didn't know that person very well. She was unnaturally scared of the tiny lizards that live in Texas, though, and once called me in a panic over one. This book is not about lizards.
