Captures the quarter-life crisis and the awkward transition from college life to real-life. The thing that really got me was the way the characters spoke to each other - it reminded me of the allusion-heavy, inside joke-y banter I used to share with my friends in college, way back in the olden days.

It's definately realistic, and doesn't have that 'fairytale' ending you'd like it too. But that is not the reason why I didn't like this book. It was like whatever.

This story will resonate to anyone who has experienced a falling out with a best friend or family member. It is heartbreaking.

It's a sad book, the main character is emotionally stunted and eventually gets abandoned by her main people by the end of it all. The question this book really tries to ask is what's more important, true love or true friendship and what happens when you put that into jeopardy. The book comes on the side of friendship and given how things play out, the way decisions are made you wonder at the genius of the author because Lauren Fox did a great job keeping what happens close to the vest.
