I really wanted to like this book a lot more than I did. I couldn't get past the absurdity of the protagonist being so afraid of an unhappy story ending that she would go to such lengths to avoid reading the book. For crying out loud, if you don't like the book put it away and get another one!!! I liked most everything else about the story - likable characters, nice theme, interesting stylistic devices - but just couldn't believe that a character as smart as Julia would act so mindlessly.

babyhippoface True. That part was kind of silly. But I still liked her.
