I loved this book! I liked the story, but I really wish it was longer. It was realistic and unrealistic at the same time.

This was such a great novel. One of my favourites this year!

I really disliked this book. I didn't even finish it! The chapters were so short and didn't make any sense. I thought I would have liked this book but I guess I was wrong. I don't recommend this book to anyone. Sorry to anyone who did like the book.

The story was great but all the short chapters made the book confusing.

I found this novel better-suited for a 6th or 7th grader. There were far too many 1-2 page chapters, this made the novel choppy and filled with disconnectiong ideas, thoughts, and statements. To be honest I am kind of confused as to why this novel is a nominee in the first place.
