I thought that this book had a really good concept, and yet I felt like the author didn't do nearly as much with it as she could. It seemed to me that she veered off into too many little tangents; she either should have cut the tangents out, or made them more profound or purposeful or something. But generally speaking, I liked the story and the author's voice. The main character annoyed me from time to time, but I had to remind myself that she was only supposed to be 18...a lot of us were annoying like this at 18. :) I also liked that portions of the book were set in San Francisco. Since I was just there a few weeks ago, I could very easily picture where these things were taking place. I like that in a book.
