So, I finally got around to this one. I started reading it when it first came out, and I couldn't get into it at the time. The audiobook version just came out, so I listened to it instead. While I liked it, I didn't love it. I came in with some preconceived notions, because so many people LOVE it (love in ALL CAPS, love as in it's the best book ever written). For me, it didn't live up to that hype.

Ryan Dean is immature. He's only 14, so, yes, that is to be expected. However, I'm not sure the Annie/Megan storylines are believable considering his age and maturity level. That being said, I love how honest Ryan Dean's voice is throughout the story. I think Smith has a way of writing that makes people squirm - in a good way.

It's got a lot of language, violence and sex talk so this one is for older teens and adults. (Rebekah)
