A brief but decent des Really easy to read with the whole lack of structure train of thought thing Did she or didn t she, I ve read it twice and still don t know DOn t like the way they crunched that in at the end, might have been better without it.
made me dream about eating a whole chocolate cake This is close to a 4 star rating for me Goodreads, when are you going to let us rate by half stars A lot of it made me uncomfortable which is rarely unwelcome, especially with novels Raw, visceral, ugly, strange, self absorbed, much like teenage angst itself.
