This book is SO boring. So boring. It lacks even the little bit of spark that infused its predecessor, Maybe Tonight?.

So boring.

And I can't get over how much and how casually all these 15-year-olds drink! Not even in secret, they get served alcohol in restaurants and bars and I'm like, "Hello? Carding? The law? Hello?" I mean, WTF. And it's so, so, so casual like the 15-year-old is saying, "I could use a glass of wine. Or even a whole bottle." And that's not even questioned or commented on.

I hated the main character and her shallowness: she only cared about boys, clothes, which party she should go to, and hoping against hope that no one at her snobby private school would figure out that she was a middle-class scholarship student. I also hated that all t ...more

I always get a non-ending on my first read-through, and so does Brayden. It takes a few goes before you actually get a satisfying ending.
