I didn't finish this- I got a little before the halfway mark this morning after picking it up. I was planning on finishing it after starting because it's better than the last Sparks book I tried to read, Finding Kate.
The thing is, there is only so much folloshness I can read. "I feel like a grunt, grunt, pig."? Um, yeah. "spoiled brat little squirty me"? wtf?
Get the hell out of here. I can't read that. I'm actually a little pissed off right now that this is indeed a book. This person is supposed to be almost 18 years old. Now, I may have been a little too street and world wise by that age but come on. Even the most sheltered kid, and I did have some sheltered friends, don't speak or write like that. Sparks should be ashamed of herself. If she's trying to help kids than she should try to make the "person" who wrote this diaries a little more relatable.
I'm giving this two stars because it didn't suck like Finding Kate and that's about it.
