I was physically accosted by an unfamiliar woman when I was checking this book out in the library. She was quite literally shaking with anticipation for me to read, love, and devour this book. It was by far her most absolute, favorite-of-all-time book!! I know how it feels to love a book so much that you just want to share your joy and have others love it just as much. So I was eager to crack it open when I got home to dive into all the promised goodness.

Well, let me say that it's not the worst book I've ever read, but I certainly wouldn't chase somebody across the library and gush unabashedly over it. The main character was without any charm or redeeming value and the boyfriend was despicable. I just couldn't conjure up any sympathy for the situation they found themselves in.
