I tried both of these stories, but neither one hit a chord with me.

In the first, Faking 19, I found Alex to be apathetic and not very interesting. It drove me nuts that she refereed to her friend by only her initial, and the way that she would just zone out and set herself in some I need a daddy fantasy.

The second one, Saving Zoe, wasn't much better. I can see why Echo is a shade of herself, but it drives me nuts that she just lets herself exists in that state. That she can see her friends slipping away, but doesn't really do anything about it or even talk to them.

In the end, this one just wasn't for me.
