Journal Entry 2 by flewry at St. Petersburg, Florida USA on Sunday, May 15, 2011

3 out of 10

This started out well, but it lost its sense of humor pretty quickly on, and devolved into an overly detailed melodrama.

It irritated me that the author couldn't seem to decide whether she wanted her story to be multi-perspective, or just focusing on Stevie. The result was that majority of the book was from Stevie's perspective, but you'd get stray chapters, paragraphs, or even sentences from other peoples'. It did not work for me at all.

On a related note, this was WAY too long; I could have enjoyed it a lot more if it had been at least a hundred pages shorter, and this seemed to be a result of the author not having a clear character focus. Just to name a few of many instances, we didn't need the details of Katy and [insert name here, don't want to spoil even if it's obvious!] falling in love, and basically anything relating to the younger brother was pointless.

A few good things about it..... I thought the dialogue was well done, very natural sounding. And I liked how thoughtful and honest it was.. at least in the beginning. By the end I was bored.
