did not like it
bookshelves: for-the-bus, summer-reading-09, ya

I really wanted to like this book. But I wish it had not been soooooooo obviously a first novel. I don't hang around that many kids, but even I know that no one talks like that. And what was with the cardboard characters like that the slutty racist popular girl and the alky sexist pothead brother? So, although there were a few delightful relationships and exchanges, this book just had me groaning. Out loud and on the bus, even.
