This book is one of the best books I have ever read. I usually don't read, I usually don't like to read, but this book kept me in my bedroom with the door locked. Whenever I didn't read it was like a comercial break. The way the author uses words to describe makes it sound like a description of somthing that had happened to you. You may read the first two pages then put it down, but boy when you reach the third page it gets going. My teacher always says that if your the reader you choose what parts you want to skip, so go ahead and skip what you want but your going to be missing on a lot. SA

Much of this book is entertaining and chock full of teenage drama. In many ways, I genuinely liked the book

The difficulty of being the only girl in a family of boys, of dealing with a new school, using technology to stay in touch with friends far away, all well written, story-appropriate and constantly making me smile. I felt the issues surrounding Aspberger's Syndrome was not only interesting but woven in so nicely.

The poor handling of underage drinking, indiscriminate sex in public places, and having sex with one brother to 'get back' at the other brother was disappointing and is why I gave the book a low rating.

    Boring and Predictable

    If you want a book that is a mindless and meaningless read, this is the perfect one. It's pretty unrealistic and boring, and by the time I got done reading, I felt no fulfillment at all and certainly did not want to go back and reread it.
    I thought it had potential, but the "Guide" portion was not utilized very effectively. Overall, there are a lot of books out there that are more fun to read and a way better use of your time.

    People!

    Dear reviewers,: please STOP telling the ending. This is a review, and ppl read them to see how the book is, not to kno pairings. This really gets me mad because people keep ruining books for me! So, keep it to YOURSELF. Sincerely Yours, TickedAf'Off. -.-
