did not like it
Recommended to Anastasia by: Simon & Schuster

I did not enjoy this book. The main character was incredibly self-defeating and lacked any sort of personal respect.

The book was written quite simply, with a lot of dialogue and lacked any sort of plot driving. There must have been about 40 pages of actual "drama," once her secrets were challenged.

I really would have liked this story to have been about a stronger, smarter, girl down on her luck who learned to respect herself. But the character wasn't that intriguing. It might have helped if there was more character building or if she thought deeper thoughts.

This line basically sums up the book; "I smiled but didn't feel happy. I felt shitty and desperate but I said, 'Okay,' anyway."
