** spoiler alert ** Such a beautiful ending. I don't expect that. Anyway, I really am impressed by the story and characters in "52 Reasons to Hate My Father." Just like it said Lexi might have 52 reasons to hate her father but she only needs one reason to love him. I also have 52 plus one reasons to love this book. And here is the 53 reasons and so on ...

"52 Reasons to Hate My Father" isn't capture my best interest at the first few chapters. Actually, it's really boring to listen (in this case read) to Lexi bragging on and on about her incredulous and fabulous life ,,, but that's the big part of the plot. After that, the story's picking up; it's getting better and better every pages. It even makes me fond to love Lexi and also makes me harder to breathe and want to scream on the top of my lung with her. I know why she hates her father and I actually hate him because of her (even if I know that what he forces her to do is the best for her). I just feel sad for her ,,, Lexi is just a teenage girl who want her father approval and attention which she think she'll never get. It's so bad that she had to grow up in such environment. But soon everything will change.

Let's move on to the intern, Luke since he's another reason why I like "52 Reasons to Hate My Father." I think he's adorable and cute. His life has a purpose and he tries real hard to grab it which is the thing that most people wish they have. Rolando is a big part of this book (sadly he doesn't appear in the scene as much as I want). He's the reason that I added another star for the book. He changes Lexi's life and he's the strange way to see the world. He makes the bad thing doesn't as bad as it looks. "52 Reasons to Hate My Father" makes me know that everything happens for a reason ... After I find out the reason that makes Richard Larrabee, Richard Larrabee, I feel so sad for him. However I also glad that he's learned from his mistakes and tries to fix it in order to make everything better.

"52 Reasons to Hate My Father" is the book about family, forgiveness, good intentions, and second chances. So you’d give it a chance.
