I went in to this book with low expectations. I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but this book turned out to be a pretty big disappointment. The writing was okay and I enjoyed some of the minor characters, but not much else. I hated the main character, I really could not connect with him at all. There isn’t really much to this story and it mostly frustrated me.
I didn’t like Will, at all. It seemed like there wasn’t much to him. He was just confused and his character felt empty. He gets kissed by his best friend Angus and it confuses him, because he didn’t hate it. But then he meets Brandy and kind of likes her too. He ends up just jerking both of them around, although it was pretty obvious which one he actually wanted, but he didn’t really do anything about it. And he certainly had chances to do that.
The biggest problem I had with this book was the lack of a plot. There really wasn’t a reason for this book. There is no real conflict, because Will doesn’t really see it as a problem, and there is no resolution to anything in the book. I hated the ending. It ends in a really weird place in the book and it was weird.
I did manage to actually finish the book, so it gets 2 stars, just for that. Overall, I really did not like this book and I do not recommend it. This book is just not worth the time you could be using to read better books.
