A reader who’ll try anything once, including bad books in search of good ones. Eclectic as her tastes are, she tends to gravitate to historical romances, realistic contemporaries, and some fantasy novels.
I didn't even think about the rating for this book until the story took a bit wobbly turn towards the end and I immediately dropped a star from then four star rating in my head. Well, that wobbly turn and the speshul snowflake neon signs the author dragged out.
Other than that, I feel like I should've read this in school and get to write a proper essay on analysing all the things and comparing it to my own teen years which came a little after the 91-92 when this is set. And of course comparing this book to the brilliant My Mad Fat Diary (show since I've not read the book), but I'm sure others have done it already. Better than I could.
I've been told that the film adaptation is good too, but I'm not sure yet if I want to watch it.
