I thought it was pretty good. The end was kind of lame and I felt it could've ended much better. There were a few things I felt Val should have done that she never did (Talk to Nick's mom, confront Jeremy, CLEAN HER ROOM).
At the beginning, it switched back and forth between past and present, including them in one chapter. It took me a while to get used to it and then once I was used to it, she stopped writing 'em like that. :/
Gotta say though, in the flashbacks... it's spot the heck on about how out-casts feel in high school, you know.. minus all the jock hate. Jocks/preps didn't really pick on me in high school, just jerks did. In Middle school was when the jocks/preps were brutal. I dunno.. I guess the people hating on this book think that's too over the top to be realistic? But bullying is so bad in high school now. Just saying.
