Read in September, 2009

I enjoyed this book and really liked the characters. Patrice, the smart girl who must essentially raise herself, and Monty, the tough guy who turns out to be smart and kind, form an unlikely friendship. Their relationship grows through the strory and the reader is rooting for them to succeed. My main complaint about the book is that is isn't very deep. These characters all have deeper issues and while it is nice to suspend reality and watch things happen in a storybook manner, it also isn't very believable. I liked the book but I'm not sure it will stay with me for long.
