What is with these weird depressing books I keep reading lately. Geez. I knew going into it that the girl Julia died and Colt, the guy, is trying to cope with her death after having a secret relationship with her. Throughout the whole book I just felt bad for him. He had so many questions he would never get answers to and raw feelings he could never really express. I thought the ending was terrible! I don't feel like anything got any better for him. Yes he realized that he needed to stop living in the past, but I didn't feel like he was really able to get on with his life. Maybe if things with him and Kirby ended up differently I would have felt better about the way it ended, but I thought he was more lonely at the end than he was in the beginning.

I did have one favorite quote though.

I was on my bed, listening to the rain and trying to decide whether to go into the kitchen for another bowl of cornflakes (and hear my mother say for the ten millionth time, "Colten, do you have a tapeworm?") or keep lying there and fall asleep, which would mean waking up starving around two in the morning.
