I was disappointed in this novel. I thought the premise was very intriguing and I was eager to learn more about this girl. However, Carrie never felt real to me. A lot of time is spent describing her teen inner turmoil, which is realistic, but shallow. It wasn't compelling enough for me to connect with her as a character. Too little time is spent dealing with the emotional core of the story. For example, pages are devoted to analyzing a letter from her crush, but only a paragraph is spent on the moment she reveals her painful past to her boyfriend.
