"'My mom thinks we’re all too young to be dating anyway,' she answered." No shit. You're in the fifth grade. Damn fast-ass children.

What in the hell is this? We jump to the sister's boyfriend who has only been in the picture five seconds. It switches to first person present tense, and all the capitalization and dialogue quotation marks went away. Authors, for the love of God, this isn't cute. You just ruin your perfectly good books by doing this crap. It's not "daring" writing, it's just silly.

I didn't realize this switches first person POV of something like six people. Why do authors insist on ruining great stories with things like this? Switching to Via's POV was bad enough, but it was still in the family, so I could handle it. I see no imminent benefit to these random friend POVs. That's disappointing. The story should be about August and his family.

Ugh, ugh, ugh. I kind of want to curl up in a ball with a gallon of ice cream and cry my eyes out.

Ack, I'm so nervous for him. BRB, having war survivor-like flashbacks to middle school.

I know, right? My biggest concern in the fifth grade was my Gameboy.

Yet they're all talking about who's dating who and who wants to date who in this. I thought YA was bad enough.
