What happened?! This book had SO much potential (luuuv the cover & the cute lil quasi-chibis) but... it's so.... fake. :,(

Online conversation starts on p 56 in my copy. PAINFUL. Like, this girl actually ASKS what IRL means. ??! Oh, but apparently, she figures out how to emote without any trouble. *eyeroll*

Fortunately (?) perhaps because it's so BAD, it hasn't gotten any worse by p 151. It's predictable enough that I can skim through & I'm not really missing anything.

Well, there is ONE thing that's ringing true... the manga that Maddy creates has a BLATANT Mary Sue protagonist and (get this) the other teens think it's brilliant. *facepalm*

Also, it dates itself with references to at least one band & a number of animes. But after everything else, I can't bring myself to care about that.
