This book was poorly written but had a good plot. This is the story of a young woman, Billie James and her encounters with, love, heartache and the other problems teens' today face. The one main thing that I disliked about this book is that fact that the story did not get very exciting until the last 4 chapters. As I started to read the book I wanted to put it down but as the end of the book grew closer I became more and more interested. The problem with having too much at the end was that it leaves you with a dead end in the story. I think the author relates well to teens but writes with an odd style and that threw me off at first. I encourage people who enjoy books about the things real people face to read this, but if you get bored in the beginning keep reading because as you get deeper into the book you will come to find that you love it.
