This book is a great read. It is not the typical high school drama that a lot of young adult novels are. There are many heavy themes (friendship, bullying, love, self discovery, etc) that are explored, but in a way that does not think for the reader. Ultimately this book takes all its characters, the most flawed or "perfect", and explores them in a way that humanizes each one. Read this book, its thoughtful, intense and honest.

I thought this book was excellent. It captured my attention firmly from start to finish, and the ending is surely unexpected. Maurer has a way with words. Highly recommend.

The book had excellent creativity and a "voice" that stuck with me throughout it. I loved how the writer was able to make me smile with comical remarks but also pull me in with the serious aspects. My expectations were exceeded and the ending couldn't have been more genuine!! I rarely read books twice, but I'll be sure to pick this one up again!
