Bookworm1858 - I did think of this book as a really good example of YA friendship but I can see how you wished for more of Becca’s story.

Sara (of The Page Sage) - The premise seems really interesting (although kind of similar to Good Bye, Rebel Blue), but it seems like the friendship would be the backbone of the story. If that aspect doesn’t come together, I can understand why the book didn’t fully click for you.

Isa - I thought the concept sounded really interesting and the pop culture references peak my interest but I’ve read some not so positive reviews about the book, including yours. It sucks that the friendship between Alex and Becca wasn’t well explored.

Alexa Y. - I love the honesty in this review E! (Mine is going up tomorrow!) I couldn’t quite pinpoint what was lacking in the book for me, but now I think I see it. I liked the friendship Alex and Becca had, but you’re right – it lacked a little more depth to it. Still, it was a pretty interesting read for me!

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I really liked our little conversation about this book! I think it actually helped me realize the little things I was missing from it too because it was really hard to put my finger on! I loved the friendship with Alex and Becca but wanted it to be more prominent and yep, connecting with Alex was just hard sometimes. Very well stated, as always, and thanks for talking it out with me! 🙂
