Read from August 26 to 28, 2012 was okay. I enjoyed the storyline about Eliza and her relationship with her mother, but the teenage characters are all cliches, the mc voice was unrealistic, and it had a bit too much of a cautionary vibe. I don't think Eliza's motivations and decisions were consistent...the choices she makes seem out of the blue. Plus, it even got to the point where Eliza's reactions to things were channeling Amelia Bedelia: for example when Josh tells her he works at the Apple store, she thinks "I cant imagine him selling fruit!" hyuk hyuk. :-/
