Zac Quite ironic that a book with the word "plot" in the title seems to be missing just that. It instead reads like a dull diary of an affluent misunderstood whiney college student. Im giving it another 50 pages to do something, anything.

Zac Since I've finished the first section the book has improved exponentially. The sections surrounding Mitchell and Leonard are great because they show things that aren't simply whining. Those are the characters that grow and develop the most. Madeline does little to no growing and simply stays the most one dimensional character possible.
