Let me see, I hate/detest love triangles, I hate teenage angst, I hate stories about teenage girls in high school and the social BS. So why can’t I wait to get book 2 of this series???
The story, it is that simple. I loved the story, the back story, and the ongoing story in spite of all those things I hate. I just blew right through them and really enjoyed the story.Barbie is the teenager we could all learn to hate and trust me for a couple of chapters I thought I might give up and not finish since smart-ass teenagers are not among my favorite character types. But things change, you get drawn into a story that has some depth, and you enjoy the characters with all their flaws. Even though the repeated overdone anger at nothing grated on my nerves, the fact that it may be an actual teenage trait does not make me like it any better.
After much consideration I gave it 4.5 Stars mainly because it kept me interested and involved in spite of my own personal dislikes but if I were posting on Amazon I would round down to 4 but the ending chapter gave me hope for a brighter future since our heroine seemed to be getting her ass handed to her a lot. Looks like that part might change.
