Fantastic. I read this book for the first time right after it came out. It is one of the books that got me into reading more YA. The plot is original, the characters are believable (even if that means not always likable), and writing itself is beautiful. In terms of writing it's one of the best YA books I've read.
Well-written and also entertaining. It's got some of the typical aspects of YA fiction - the "issues" - like bullying, teen drinking, etc - but I felt like the focus of the book was on the development of Samantha's character and on the writing itself, which was refreshing.
I've recommended this one several times since I read it, and I'm pleased to do so again here. It's a must read if you're a fan of the genre, and it's a good book to start with if you haven't read it before.
Thanks to Planned Television Arts for sending me a copy to review!
