really liked it

I chose this book off of a list of books to read for my "Summer Reading". I adored this book. I read it in about a week (hey, it was summer....)and I actually looked forward to reading it at night. I liked the way they had nicknames, and how it was brutally honest about the way our society is today. I liked the way it simply told it how it really is, and the author wasn't afraid to tell the ups and downs. It made it easy to connect to the characters, and easy to enjoy. I loved the way it stuck to the way that teenagers really do think, and act, because it made it easier to picture in my head. There were some parts of the book where I wish it used better describing words. Some parts I longed for it to go into more depth, and to better explain. But for the most part, this book was a pleasure to read. I'll give it 4 stars.
