I wasn't sure about this book at first. It was very ABC Family, and not in the good way. But the second half of the book really got to the heart of the plot and made me care about the characters, which helped me see past the language. Much better than I expected at the start of the book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )
This was a funny, engaging satire! Both characters' voices and personalities could be annoying at times, but they were polar opposites and it was fun to see the switch. I had fun trying to figure out who was doing what and what would happen next, and was often off. The author hinted at some darker consequences for characters that could have been explored more, had this been a different novel. Had this been a different novel as well, the -ending- could have been different. The tone the author chose restricted that, keeping it satirical.
REPOAESTHETICAL. this book was predictable and fairly creepy (paying fourteen yr olds to make your babies is NOT OKAY, OKAY) but the characters were hilarious and the language was DELIGHTFUL. alas, sequel fodder for days, but I'll bite.
Strange silly satire on teenage pregnancy and consumer culture. Ended as a cliff hanger -
I am NOT the hugest fan of the writing style in this book. Something about the writing makes everything--the characters, the plot, even the intense setting--seem so immature.
Nonetheless, as I continued reading, I got used to the writing style and found myself really enjoying the characters and the plot.
Though, I must warn you-- if you've read the description on the inner flap, the book DOES NOTFULLY DELIVER on what is laid out there. Which is a little disappointing, but at the end of book, I was still so caught up in the plot I had to dive directly into the next one.
