did not like it

At first I thought this book was really great. Hunter seemed like a really cool guy and Erin didn't annoy me completely. The other characters seemed well developed too. But towards the end when they went back to Kentucky, I felt that Hunter didn't really care about Erin's feeling towards her grandmother and her father, and that Erin was too naive about the whole situation. I also just really hated it when Erin found out about the whole agreement between her grandmother and Hunter but she didn't confront him or her about it and used him like she thought he was using her. I'm still not exactly sure if he used her because that wasn't clear at all. And then she had to go and write that last story just to piss him off which his ridiculously childish and too high school considering they are supposed to be going to a big hotshot New York college. The ending just really sucked because they didn't even try to resolve their issues and then she's all cool with going back to Kentucky with him. I just felt like their problems were too juvenile and they could have been resolved if they just talked to each other instead of tiptoeing around in the stories and then getting pissed at each other if the other person didn't understand or took it the wrong way. The story thing was good in theory and sounded really great but it just wasn't executed well for me at least. This book was just really disappointing for me because I thought the beginning was really awesome but then it just got too high school and annoying. I dive into books to get away from the typical high school life and to enjoy a fantasy and I didn't really escape high school with this book.

Tasha Byrne So true. The ending completely ruined any good points the book had. And it could have been a great book..

Sandralk Great review! My thoughts exactly about the last chapter.
