I'm so torn about this book. On one hand, this was an amazing motivator for me finally putting a passcode on my phone, but on the other hand, this book this book was kind of boring. I did really enjoy this and I loved how no characters were 100% good (except maybe Curtis), especially Joe & Beck, but overall, the story felt a bit rushed (a lot happened and I can't really tell how long the characters knew each other) and while the writing style really worked at some points, it really annoyed me at others.

Really, my feelings are mixed but overall I did really like reading this I just don't ever think I'll re-read it. (Don't hate me, but you should all go watch the show, Penn Badgley deserves a medal for his performance.)
