** spoiler alert ** What a short book. I'm really tired of a paragraph and then
This.
This was it.
This annoying,
Stupid,
One line crap Alyson Noel pulls MORE THEN A FEW times per chapter. I mean, really, whats wrong with good ol' paragraphs?!
I mean seriously.
Why?
Why do you have to do this ALL THE TIME!?
Below is seriously EVERY SINGLE IMPORTANT POINT FROM THE BOOK. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE ENDING, DON'T READ FURTHER!

-Bohdi's nightmare: When a freshman, Bohdi had a crush on the new girl, Nicole, who was older. Nicole was bullied a lot, and he wanted to say something, that she was beautiful and smart, but he didn't, and was going to say it on Monday. But, on the weekened, Nicole kills herself, and that was why Bohdi didn't cross over before- he blamed himself.
