First book I've read in a long time that 1. I read in two day and 2. made me cry. Both nights I sat up in bed reading and had to force myself to put the book down and go to sleep. It's been too long since that's happened. Which is weird because while I liked the book (obviously) the characters at times and the dialog sometimes got on my nerves. Seemed too unrealistic to how teenagers think and act. There's some pretentious teen crap lines. The cigarette metaphor? No thank you.
