Dearest Tempest,

I think you're... sigh, how do I begin?

Let's say you're quite a contradiction, considering how you say you are not going to symphatize with yourself yet end up wallowing in self-pity just about all the time.

Please, don't forget you've got a boyfriend. Regardless of how on-off he is, rules of a lady- you do not go around making out with other boys, no matter how hot they are and no matter how you attracted you are to them. Repeat, YOU-DO-NOT.

Oh, and I don't get how you say you care about your family and friends, but the second you go under the pool you hardly think about them. The only time you seem to consider attempting swimming out of the ocean to answer to your friends is when Kana or Kio or whatever refuses to answer your questions.

Ugh, Tempest!

I don't understand the point of Tempest and Mark's relationship at all. And it's so disappointing to me that Tempest's mother died so quickly, considering how the Tempest is consistently talking about her.

How'd this book get a 4.02 rating?

Ellie I also think just about every other line was a cliche, like "We have a connection." Tempest also changed her mind every two seconds and got angry over the little things and did nothing over the big ones.
