Break ups, hook ups, and fuck ups. This book literally has it all. Robin Wasserman had me worried when she killed off Kaia and used the last book as a device to show everyone's suffering. However, although this novel is very slim, it goes deeper then average YA Novel. At one point in everyone's life, we must experience grief. The loss of a loved one is never easy to cope with. However, these 6 individuals have to learn to live with the grief, and guilt, of all playing a hand in the death of one of their own. Expertly, Ms. Wasserman dabbles into the psychological depths of these individuals. We see the soft side of the bad boy, the complete broken down good girl, and that Adam is the wiener we all expected him to be since book 1. Instead of having everyone hold hands and cry and everything miraculously be all right, each character decides to attempt to cope with their grief and utter loss differently and often destructively.
All in all, I'm stuck between giving this book 4 or 5 stars, I've flip-flopped about 3 times while typing this. If you are a fan of the series, this book is one of the better. It has a lot of twists especially in the relationship department for the characters. I found Adam to be utterly irritating as he continued to be a loser and make stupid decisions. But again, it's his way of escaping and not facing reality. So thank you Ms. Wasserman for making me actually sit and sort through my thoughts at the end of this novel instead of just moving on to the next. I really am eager to begin the final installment of this series.
