I think that the reviewers judge this one too harshly... It's a young adult novel! Not all of them are required to be on the Thirteen Reasons Why level... Believe it or not, these books are written for young adults who aren't always prepared to read about more serious issues (aka I'd you're 13 or 14), and most of what they write about is what they relate to! Shouldn't that be what all novels aspire to do? Relate to their target audience? Anyways. I liked this one... It was fun! My favorite? Not exactly... But I'm not mad I bought it or read it. I wish that this idea had been made into an adult novel... Because the concept was so cool, but it seemed a bit rushed and slightly unrealistic. The two kid seemed to come to conclusions about Facebook too quickly to be believable.. But again, this is for YOUNG ADULTS. Of course they are only going to care about there person they marry! It was fun... A neat concept, and a sweet story. Love the two main characters! Anyone who doesn't clearly does not remember what it's like being a 16 year old. I too am curious as to what a younger me would think of Facebook.. Especially since i just began using it 4 years ago! So weird to think about. I just wish that the story had gone more in depth, but other than that it was fun!
