bookshelves: chick-lit

Ugh. This book actually wasn't chick-lit, so I probably should have stopped reading it. It was pretty depressing in the "Wow, this is a poorly written story" kind of way. I definitely would have given it up after the first page if not for the research I was trying to accomplish.
Whining aside, an immature college freshman might enjoy this, or more likely a high school student dreaming about college. It had an extremely "coming-of-age" feel, which didn't appeal to me.
I was going to get into details, but this book really isn't worth that kind of review. In general, it was unbelievable, in need of editing, and not nearly as heart-warming as it set out to be. Granted, I am really not the target audience, so someone younger might enjoy it.
