Okay. There is actually a lot of potential in this book.

I thought it had editing issues.

Another thing is, is that there are three main characters in this book. The book is told in third person... I personally would have liked it much better if the book was told in three separate perspectives so that way I could connect with the characters better.

Also, there really isn't a lot of plot and character development. That was another thing that bothered me.

I also felt like I was reading a galley instead of a published book. It was very plain without attractive chapter headings, and to me, it wasn't a proper cover either.

But I did like how it was a very diverse book. The main characters are African American teenage girls. You don't see a lot of that in YA lit.

Once again, the book has potential, but it doesn't mean it doesn't have its flaws either.

My rating system:
5 - I don't use the 5 stars. A book is never perfect, therefore a book should never get a 5 star.
4 - As good as a book can get. I loved loved loved it.
3 - It was good, I enjoyed most of the book, but it has some flaws.
2 - I didn't really like it, but at least I got through the book
1 - I couldn't get through the book, and I didn't like it.
