Ugh. Hated first half--or maybe third--of this book. Someone called this a metaphor for adolescence, and after reading that it was all I could see, and it irritated me. Unrealistic crap just to show how crappy it feels to be a kid like that, before and during awkward changes. Blech. But after F's first note, it got a hook in me and I was actually kinda interested in it. And thinking back, the beginning wasn't SO awful. Anyway, it got funny, and emotional for me, in a good way. And by the end, it had sped up to such a level of excitement that I couldn't put it down, and was squealing and giggling and holding my breath in turns and just loved it. But I can't forget how irritated I was with this book for a while, so this is at least temporarily four stars.
