(I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.)

I honestly don't understand what so many people loved about this book. I found the whole thing hard to follow.

I know Emmy was in a drugged up weird mental state, but I could barely understand anything she ever said or thought. Even from the beginning!

Also, Kephart tried to describe everything too much. I couldn't handle how some of the paragraphs of the descriptions of things are Emmy or Sophie just went on and on and on. Towards the end I would skip some paragraphs just to get to the dialogue.

Two things that kept me reading this book were the good recommendations I read (and heard) and I wondered what was going to happen to Sophie. I did like Sophie's character. Along with Joey and his aunts. They're another reason I kept reading, I actually liked them.

I guess this book just wasn't my cup of tea, which is a bummer. I tried so hard to like it.
