  1. This book started off really great, but after a while seemed repeitive. The main chaeacter was kinda shallow and seemed unrealistic. The supporting characters were sterotypcal. I really loved the authors book Deep Down Popular, so I was disapointed in this book.

  2. This book was all right, but I found it painfully predictable and a bit stereotyped. The flashbacks were well-executed, though, and made me want to read more.
