Readable, sweet in parts, but a bit annoying in others
on 27 February 2015
It was readable, though I wouldn't read it again. Echoing others, Cece isn't likable whatsoever, she's flirtatious, but actually really annoying. I get that it's supposed to be a coming-out story, but given that this is aimed at teenagers who are probably trying to come out, having Holland's mum react in the way she did was a bit harsh- most parents wouldn't react THAT badly and it's probably going to scare a lot of readers back into the closet. Holland's hunger/obsession with Cece was well-written and did portray what it's like to fall in love, so the first half of the book was good. But once they'd kissed, everything happened extremely fast, they'd literally kissed once or twice and they were already telling each other they loved each other, without any real further build up of their relationship. And then the book just ended completely at random. The writing style was good though, short, impacting sentences etc. Not bad, but not as good as Annie on my mind.
