did not like it

The best thing about this book was that it makes you realize that anyone really CAN get published! They should really file it under "inspiration".

I know, I know, I got what I deserved. I just wanted a fun summer read and I loved her book Jemima J, but this was *complete* garbage. The characters were shallow and unlikeable (at one point the main character realizes she is literally prostituting herself out). She is such a self-satisfied whiner that I found myself actively rooting *against* her.

And just when you can't hate them more, an awkward, explicit, and completely unnecessary sex scene is thrown in for good measure.

I wish this had been a Choose Your Own Adventure where I could show up in the final scene and shoo the guy away (I won't spoil it and tell you who the guy is, because if after this you still read it, you deserve to suffer).

I want to throw this book away but maybe I'll save it as a birthday gift for someone I really hate.

Shreya Jain Hahaha! I won't be picking up this book, thanks for the hilarious review :)

P.S. You should try your hand at this writing business, I'm sure you'll outsell Green in a heartbeat.
