I’m going to start this off by repeating the title: this surprised me. In the beginning, the book really caught my attention and then it started to make a turn for the worse. I used to read on a website and app called Wattpad. Wattpad is a place where anyone can write a story and anyone can read it. Totally free. Some stories on there are absolutely amazing and you NEED to know what comes next but others are not so good. When this book took a turn, it started to give me the feeling of a Wattpad story and not the good ones. I’m talking unrealistic, bad conversations, poorly drawing out the issues in the story. I felt a bit of nostalgia though for the time in my life when I didn’t know that that style was bad and so I kept right along. And then it surprised me. I couldn’t put it down. I really enjoyed it and I’m glad I read it. Is this book for everyone? No. But if you like typical YA fiction and can handle Wattpad style stories you might enjoy it!
