it was ok
Read in August, 2011

People give books a high rating based on how supposedly "realistic" or "deep" a books seems, but for some reason a lot of people seem to ignore the fact that the main character is unbelievably selfish and unlikable. Drew chose not to call her best friend to check if he was okay. Why? Because she didn't want to know if he wasn't okay, because she couldn't "handle" it. Excuse me, but that is THE absolute most selfish thing I've ever heard and ruined the whole book. She is a complete b*tch, not worthy of a book, not worthy of having her story told at all. Ugh.
