it was ok
bookshelves: could-not-bring-self-to-finish, ya, printz

** spoiler alert ** I really thought that I would love this book. It sounded like it was going to be funny, and sweet, and warm, and all kinds of great. But I think this is a rare case of just Too Much Shit. I could only get to page 120-something before I started skimming to the end, which was, well, not to my liking. It seems like the ending kind of negates all the crazy stuff that happens in the book. All of it! What's the point, then, of having all the crazy in there?

I don't know. Too much, too soon, and for me, it got old real quick.

AND THE TERM 'RENTS IS USED. That is my least favorite slang word of all time.

Kaela I can understand why you would think the whole too much shit theory (I kind of do too) but you really should read the rest of the book, because the beginning is pretty slow, and it gets a lot better towards the end.

Laura I agree with Kae.
