it was amazing
Read from August 27 to September 01, 2010

** spoiler alert ** Serena may owe me money, too! Haha! What a great story! I had a copy printed so it was difficult to read and at sometimes uncomfortable, but I didn't care! I couldn't stop reading! I wished I had a hard copy to give to my best friend because there were so many times where I said "wow that's me and her."
It felt like anyone could have known these girls (Dolores & Serena), maybe went to high-school with them. Their wild experiences made me hungry for more and I stayed up way too late a few nights reading. A few times in the story I got upset with Dolores, like when she had the check from Raymond. I mean she was so broke and all, making a porno for God sake and she couldn't have just took the check?! I couldn't help but squirm when she was doing all those drugs and junk while being pregnant. I know a lot of people who would have a heart-attack if they read this. I also want to somehow smack her when she was craving for meat and she had to shoplift for it. She kept going on and on about MEAT MEAT MEAT. Haha.
So everyone loved Serena, especially Dolores. I was surprised at the innocent love turned sexual obsession. I knew eventually Dolores would get hurt by Serena's games. Their "sexual friendship" kinda freaked me out. It was just wow.
I could see this as being a true story. I could see Serena and Dolores walking down my street right now arguing and playing. This really would make a cool movie. I loved it! <3
