I enjoyed this story more than I thought I would. (wish good reads would do half stars, cause I'd probably give this a 3 1/2 - but I'll round up) There are a lot of reviews out there complaining about how annoying Bianca was. I felt like Bianca's voice was very teenage like, which is exactly what she is in this story. She used Wesley to escape, and at first I found her jumping into bed with him to be really shocking and perhaps premature, but after a while I sort of just understood why she did that. People do things all the time to escape their lives and for those ten-twenty minutes of passion, she felt like she was loved.

I thought Wesley was an idiot for not realizing how hurtful his use of Duff was sooner, but all in all, it felt realistic to high school and all the petty drama that comes with it.

The portrayal of real adult issues and problems I thought was well done.
This was an easy, quick read for me.
