Too much dialogue in several places. It's becoming an issue. Fade to black/giving the readers just the gist of what is going on is the better way to go. Too much yack-yack, and the reader starts skimming/skipping pages. Not. Good.

Of course, "everyone" was conveniently there to hear the convenient confession of all wrong-doings towards Ms Popular herself. *insert major eyeroll here*

*sigh* Everything is "amazing" and everyone is "amazed" when it comes to this girl. Not. Likely.

Such a good premise for a really great mystery, and it's all secondary to all the fawning everyone does all the time over the heroine. What could have been an amazing book becomes...a meh love story.

DO NOT FUCKING REPEAT THE WHOLE THING AS ANOTHER MONOLOGUE! AGAIN!!

Why can't author just use the very trusty and reliable "and then she told him the whole gory story."

Suzie Quint A good story has balance and that's where the "art" of writing comes in.

Writing isn't easy. At all! But this book has real potential. A good editor and a re-release would do this one a world of good.
