I started out really enjoying the humor in this book...clever plays on pop culture and an interesting "diary" format with questions for readers at the end. The characters were funny in a twisted way, but then nothing happened...repeated scenes to show us how cool and wicked and awful they all were. I got the point. Then finally what we knew was going to happen all along, happened, but just not in the way we expected to. It was o.k., but I probably would have enjoyed it more when I was younger.
