it was ok

Read from March 02 to 14, 2012

I really thought I would love this one since its gotten great reviews and I normally love a depressing book featuring a teenaged girl, sadly I didn't care about anyone. I especially hated Brian's chapters, ugh! I only finished it because it was on audio and even so it was slow and I couldn't wait for it to be over. BTW, I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 just because the writing was well done, just too long and boring, if you know what I mean.
