Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments 5 chapters

I'm not connecting to this one for some reason, but maybe it's because I am SO tired today. Not even 8:00 and I can barely stay awake, so I'm probably putting it down for now.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Exactly. LOL The first part of the book was very confusing to me because I didn't understand who the (view spoiler)were either. I'm still not positive that I do.

What I think I understand is that the (view spoiler)

I think the blurbs at the start of each chapter are almost more telling than the chapters. All I know is I am still confused but I think if I read the blurbs only I might get it. LOL

I'm starting to get a feel for the characters like Mikey. I'll continue and see what happens.

Clementine | 901 comments Yeah... I'm at chapter 3 and I think like you that (view spoiler) However, I'm not sure about the execution... :/ (view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Good point. At this point in my reading I'd have to agree with your 2nd spoiler.

Clementine | 901 comments Has this hooked you? :/ I must agree with you about the little intros being clearer than the rest...


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Not yet! Lol You?


message 16: by Clementine (new) - added it

Clementine | 901 comments Neither lol :P I will give it a couple more chapters though.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Me too. If I finish it, it'll be slowly.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sounds good.

Clementine | 901 comments I'm at chapter 6 and I have nothing to say except I'm bored and confused and I don't get in which way they are "not the indie kids". (view spoiler)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments LOL right? I don't have the book with me so I'm not sure how far I got, but I don't think I'm posting because I have no clue what to say. Evidently I AM still confused.


message 22: by Clementine (new) - added it

Clementine | 901 comments Are you planning on continuing it? I have to admit, I've kinda lost interest... :S


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I hate not finishing a book unless I TOTALLY HATE it, so I'll probably try to finish.


message 24: by Clementine (new) - added it

Clementine | 901 comments Alright! I'll stick around then.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Don't feel obligated, please! Read a book you enjoy.


message 26: by Clementine (new) - added it

Clementine | 901 comments Hmm... I was supposed to read this book for a challenge but I feel like it's going nowhere. I'll see whether I continue it or not. I'm still unsure.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments No worries
