Dec 03, 09

bookshelves: didn-t-finish, realistic, ya
Read in December, 2009

Only got 13 pages into this. Stopped shortly after the appearance of the overly clownish hick (complete with detailed announcements of his defecation plans). I found the protagonist overly-aware of her otherness (she describes herself as a "counterculture being") and thus, not believable. The snark was too contrived. I was thinking it might be a fun remix of Beige by Cecil Castelucci, but just read that instead.

I gotta meet my quota of bad reviews to be allowed to read good books.
