I heard really good reviews of this book, so I was excited to read it. I thought it was written fairly well and I liked the story. I just got frustrated by Ashleigh (the best friend) and Julia. I didn't agree with Ash thinking that Julia was in love with Ned when she should have known better (knowing her as long as she had and as well as she did). I felt Ash was too self-absorbed. I also thought Julia wouldn't have been as timid with Seth - most girls I know, even nice ones in high school, wouldn't have gone out with a guy that many times who obviously wanted more than friendship (she would have said no or at least let him know she wasn't interested, especially when she was holding out for Charles). Obviously you won't know what I mean unless you read the book. I guess because I had high hopes, it was a little disappointing.
