did not like it

Obnoxious character names like "Conchita Maxwell," "Cross Sugarman," and "Aspeth Montgomery." She also likes to switch typical gender-associated names with the sex of the character. For instance, one male character was named "Aubrey." Come on, Curtis. Seriously. What's wrong with normal names? You know who would never be at a snooty East Coast prep school? CONCHITA MAXWELL. Also....the main character sucks. She totally sucks. I was not sympathetic to her plight. I found her whiny and self-sabotaging (unapologetically so), and was not happy when anything good happened to her.
