I'm giving away my copy of this book:
http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.... (ends 4/30/12)

I just did not love this one. I struggled to get through it and debated not finishing it multiple times. There was just too much language and content for me. And Ed "no offense" but I just didn't like you at all. Min was blind and stupid to ever see anything in you.

On a positive note I loved all the artwork & illustrations in this book. That's probably what kept me going. The way this book was written was unique and entertaining. I love Min's love of old movies although I wish he'd used real movies instead of making them up.

Rating: 1.5 Stars - Not My Kind of Book

Content: Lots of language including dozens of F words and sexual content. If you are not a fan of explicit language and teenage sexual content then skip this one.

Angela This didn't seem like a book with teen sex. Ah well, I'm still gonna read it. It's bought, so why not?

Inspired Kathy The book reflects back on her relationship with Ed and they can't seem to keep their clothes on, doing everything but most of the time.

Angela Ahahaha, that's kind of funny, in a weird way :/ I'm going to have to give this a try. Despite the characters incapabilities to keep their clothes on (I don't know why, but that makes me laugh, :P)

message 4: by Inge (new) - added it

Inge Huh, didn't expect that at all. That's a little disappointing. I don't mind reading about sex in a book but I do mind if it doesn't add anything to the story and it's nothing but sex.
