I started reading this book because I was interested in a YA book turned into a film which didn't feature the supernatural(s). But my expectations were not very high.
I was pleasantly surprised to experience believable, non-nerve-wrecking characters and way less pathos than I had feared. The main characters are likable most of the time, and in the cases they are not, you can somehow relate to WHY they are being idiotic.
It only got three stars in the end because although it was an interesting and heart-wrecking book,it was a bit too shallow and breezy. But I liked, it got three stars, read it if you have it around.
