it was amazing

I didn't honestly think I was going to like this book when I started it. Just due to the name and the premise, I just didn't think it was 'my kind of book.' So when it was assigned for my Fiction class in college, I made sure to save reading this for the last minute.

And how wrong I was. Maybe a little slow to start, this book picked up fast, catching my interest really fast. It's amazingly relatable, and I found myself totally invested in all of the characters and goings on of the book. Unfortunately, it's been a few years since I've read it, so I can't give specific examples, but I even found myself warming up and understanding the main character's turbulent relationship with her mother.
