Upon cracking this relatively small book open, I thought:
Marshall is a corrupt town in Nebraska where Dru and Gina, two teenagers, live. Dru and Gina are very much in love and plan to leave the town as soon as they can. ...more
Pg 3: "WHOA. This is a young adult book?! O_O
Pg 4: "Ew, dude! Not necessary!"
Pgs 6-7: "Not loving the dialogue here."
Pg 8: "Really? Again?"
Pg 11: "Son of a bitch. You used the F word. And I don't mean 'fuck'."
Pg 12-13: "Whatever."
Pg 14: "Seriously?"
Pg 15: "Nope, we're done here."
Honestly, I regret the moment that I picked it up and though, "oh this should be interesting." NO. This was the MOST poorly written trash I have ever read. I walked into this book with an open mind, but seriously this book was a pile of poop. Take this for instance:
*spoiler alert, spoiler alert!*
When Gina gets raped for the first time, it is WAY TOO DESCRIPTIVE. It doesn't even give you that stunned and frightened feeling you should get when ready about som ...more
It's about 2 teenagers who are in love and they run into trouble with a rich boy who has a crazy powerful father. I shant disclose any information but I can say that the book isn't "lovey-dovey" and it's not for the faint of heart in a sense if you're looking for a happily ever after. It's heartbreaking and tragic when you read it and your heart breaks for them because everyone wants a love story ...more
I think "Dead End" is Myers most powerful book so far. The love between the characters is undeniable. The way they react in the situations make me question how I would react. Everything was so raw, unedited, uncensored, and beautifully written. The metaphors, word choice, pacing, and plot made it an amazing book.
The story was so original, too. The thing about Myers is that he is ALWAYS original. I am amaz ...more
• 13 uses of fuck (6 of them sexually)
• 2 sex scene that were NOT YA
• the f word
• descriptive stuff
• terrible wife beating dialogue
In all, I will never read this. EVER.

Everything seemed like it was going as plan for young lovers, Dru and Gina. Dru was the all-star wrestler with a dark family past and Gina was a average teenager that fell in love with bad boy Dru. However everything seem to change, the day Gina did not attend Dru's wrestling match. Confused and bothered, Dru went to confront Gina, but only to find out the tough truth that put these couples at risk for their lives.
Dead End is a heartbreaking graphic book that woul...more
Okay so the characters were horrible. I forgot who was who. They were that one dimensional.
The R O M A N C E was probably the worst part about this book. I wouldn't even call it romance. I'd call it violent sex and bogan hillbilly love. That's what I'd call it. They swear for no reason. It's like:
Oh, sweetheart I love you so much ...more
It begins with the average lives of two young people who have fallen in love- although, in my opinion, the author should have created a more developed relationship in the beginning (have the two be dated longer before the story begins)- and they both are headed off to college soon. Their strong connection is undeniable, and the characters are very well portrayed. When tragedy strikes, the two are on the run. The tragedy that oc ...more
