's review

I thought the general plotline of this one was great. And I sort of adored Abby---I was definitely rooting for her and Leah to get together. Plus, it was lovely to see Simon and Bram again and get an extra dose of their adorableness. Only one problem: This is totally a personal thing, but I have a trouble with unlikeable MCs, and Leah is downright abrasive most of the time. She's especially rude to her mom and her mom's boyfriend (I really didn't get what she had against the guy), but she's not particularly nice to anyone else either. I KNOW she's a teenager and I should give her some grace, but my problem is that I just don't end up enjoying a book with this type of narrator as much as I want to. Again, this is definitely a personal thing; I know lots of people love snarky, realistic teen MCs.
