I didn’t really like the book. It just really wasn’t my type of book. It would be appreciated more by people who like high school drama-type stories.

It was hard to read the beginning when all the words were together with no spaces. I did like the way she writes her dialogue. The conversations flowed really easily between the characters. I also really liked the character development. They all had their personalities and own story behind them.

Overall the book wasn’t bad when it came to the writing but I didn’t like the plot that much. I would give it a 6 out of 10. - Anonymous
