Ramneek | 360 comments Awesome! My library is pretty rubbish so the only ones I can get are Crash and Someone Like You. I've already read Crash though, do you want to go for Someone Like You? :D

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7233 comments That will be fine with me. I like Sarah Dessen.

Ramneek | 360 comments Hey Hannah :) I'm sorry I haven't started this one yet, I've been in a bit of a slump, did you manage to? But I am about to start it now, I'll probably post about every 4/5 chapters :D

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7233 comments I have my copy but I have not read it yet. I have been putting too many books ahead of it.

Ramneek | 360 comments Haha, I know the feeling!

Ramneek | 360 comments So I managed to read a few chapters and I'll just spoiler tag my thoughts so you can read them whenever :)

Chapters 1-4

Ramneek | 360 comments I know what you mean! I've read a few Sarah Dessen books but this is the first one where I'm sensing a lack of character development but as you said, hopefully it improves.

I totally agree with not liking Halley's mum, she's such an exaggerated character and incredibly annoying. I also actually hate Macon, urgh, zero substance and just so so so unlikeable, I hate the way he keeps pressuring Halley!!
Halley and Scarlett's relationship is definitely one of the stand out points in this book but I keep finding myself wishing this book was in Scarlett's POV instead of Halley, who I'm finding to be such a dull and again, annoying character.

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7233 comments I agree that Scarlett would have made a better main character.

Ramneek | 360 comments Part 3

So I've just finished it and gave it 2 stars. The ending was okay? I'm just really disappointed with this overall and it was pretty boring. I liked the message of friendship that was reflected throughout the whole book but that was all it had going for it. To be honest, this is kind of making me not want to read any more Sarah Dessen! The ending was a stronger part of the book though and the pregnancy story line was wrapped up quite nicely.

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7233 comments I finished but forget to post. I gave this a 3. It wasn't the worst book by her that I read. Like you the characters weren't that great.
