I like the idea of this book more than the execution. I like all the literary references, especially for a big-time reader who reads this book. It's cool to recognize characters of other books when Adrienne remarks on them and inserts them into conversation and her narration. I was interested in reading this book the whole way through (Schmacher does a good job of the chapter endings that make you want to keep reading) but by the end I was kind of underwhelmed.

The characters promise to be more than they are. I still don't feel like I know or get any of the characters. And this cover is kind of misleading given what the story is actually about.

My advice: walk, do not run, to get this from the library (do not buy this). Stop for ice cream on the way. Don't worry if you never read this; you're not missing anything.
