This book had some really good parts and some really bad parts.

Schorr’s writing style is great. She has nailed the voice of a sophomore girl, and she is absolutely great at pulling readers into the story. I hadn’t felt this absorbed in a story for a while. It was really like you were one of the characters living out the story.
