    To say I’m slightly conflicted about this book is a huge understatement I finished it yesterday and I’ve been thinking how I feel about the content and the characters since then so I’ll warn you now my comments below are unorganized and might be borderline ranting just so you know Okay who am I kidding it’s a rant full blown rantFirst of all I’m giving it three stars because I liked the narrator of this story Mason is a sixteen year old junior in high school who I feel is likeable down to earth and unabashedly honest Well that’s about all I liked about the book No really everything else pretty much sucked Let me prove it to youMason’s two best friends are total insert bad word I couldn’t stand Jamie and how quickly he abandoned Mason after a decision that was really none of his business It pissed be off that Jamie guilt tripped Mason over something he would have done INAHEARTBEAT What happened between Mason and Kat is something that Jamie should have just let go and be there for his friend when he needed him Period end of storyNow Kat Ugh I hate to stereo type because I’m sooo not like that at all but come on She acted like a typical guy After what went down between her and Mason you’d think she’d return his calls or be half way decent towards him I couldn’t stand her for the rest of the story and seeing him give her a second chance at the end was pretty disappointing Mason you deserve better than Kat you really do One thing first time??? One word whispers liar That experience for you was pulled out of a typical bodice ripper romance novel and we all know so not true how it really goes Boo to thatColette was a piece of work OMG woman You hooked up with a sixteen year old boy Yes a boy I don’t care what state or country this is set in that just feels looks and smells criminal You knew he was just coming off of a huge let down and just needed to carve a little space to feel cared about The answer is not to take advantage of that Boo to you Boo Boo I’m so glad Mason deleted her final voice mail and decided to move on because that woman deserved to be ignored and shunned for what she did Mason’s family one word WORTHLESS The poor guy confesses to his father what he did and all his dad could focus on is Mason apologizing to Brianna for calling her out on being a beeyotch Umm taps dad on the shoulder your SIXTEEN year old son just told you he hooked up with an older woman and he obviously wants to talk about it putting it off till tomorrow because that would be a “better time” is a load of crap Oh and stepmom taps stepmom on the shoulder your older friend just took advantage of your stepson and the best you can do is give him the stink eye? Ugh You guys suck Boo to all of you except for BurkeWell you can read the overview to see what this book is about and I blame myself for still reading this because I knew the theme sounded a bit too controversial for my taste but as always my morbid curiosity took over and landed me in fictional hell Don’t think I can recommend this book but I don’t regret reading it because it got me one book closer to my reading challenge for 2011 That is allPS I actually went back and deleted about 20 of these
