liked it

The first half of this book was only okay, but it did get better. The last quarter of the book would have gotten four stars from me, but overall I give it three. I liked and related to the main character, which helped. Honestly, I felt like she was just like me in high school. She's a people-pleaser who doesn't really speak up for herself - I found myself thinking, "Oh no, that's just how I would respond in that situation!" Was she the perfect, strong heroine? No, probably not. But she rang true to me, which is more important. And, I felt like she definitely grew throughout the book. Still, there were some things about the general Romeo/Juliet/Rosaline storyline that just bugged me and it wasn't until toward the end of the book that some of that was redeemed. Overall three stars.
