"I’ve stalled a bit on this one a the mid-way point. I like the ideas but I’m not quite gelling with the writing or story.

“Thorne glared at him. "Whatever, Doctor. It's just, when Cress thought she was in love with me, she was actually in love with this other guy she'd made up in her head, who was brave and selfless and stuff. I mean, he was a real catch, so who could blame her? Even I liked that guy. I kind of wish I was that guy." He shrugged.

"Are you so sure you're not?”
Marissa Meyer, Winter
