's review

it was amazing

This was a fun read. A thoughtful, nuanced, and in-depth look at dating, sexuality, friendship, and school. It's also fun, suspenseful, and dramatic -- a page-turner. Very satisfying. And unlike some other reviewers, I loved the ending!

I don't want to give too much away, but I'll just say this:
Angel, the main character, is fun-loving, yet level-headed, popular but also affectionate and generous. She's someone who deals with her difficulties by living in the moment, generally avoiding too much self-reflection. But during the course of the book she's forced to confront the dark side of her personal circumstances, and also the negative consequences of some of her behavior. (We all have a dark side. Even me.) Angel is not perfect, but she's never vindictive. She's well meaning. In a weird way she's totally guileless. She's always genuinely trying her best. And she comes out stronger at the end for what she's gone through.

I strongly recommend this book to other YA readers.
