Elizah has family issues as everyone does growing up. However Elizah turned a crazy life into a negative personality. I personally understood her and why she seemed bitter in life. Alot of people don't know how to deal with their emotions so they turn to sarcasm and snardy comments. Elizah was creepy and wonderously strange. I loved how the book started No expectations. The book is what it is. No more no less. So many people read so much into why this happened or why this didn't happen. They forget to just enjoy what the author wrote. This is definitely a great summer read. Quick and easy. I think I read it under 4 hours.
