Character development was so weak in this novel that it actually started to piss me off I was a teenage girl once, and I ll tell you what they are emotional hurricanes The best way that I can describe the main character s inner emotional dialogue is numb There was no passion or upheaval in this story even though it is exclusivy told from the POV of a teenage girl Unbelievable There was plenty of material here, just terrible execution. A story about a teenager desperate for love Her father can seldom be bothered with her, and when he is he sets a terrible example, often asking her to lie for him while he cheats on his girlfriend with other women Her best friend cuts herself, and she expects any boy she s with to be like her father Plus, she has a mother who didn t exactly do the best by her daughter in leaving her with her father So, out of her desperate quest for unconditional love comes time with boys, and even a desire A story about a teenager desperate for love Her father can seldom be bothered with her, and when he

Plus, she has a mother who didn t exactly do the best by her daughter in leaving her with her father So, out of her desperate quest for unconditional love comes time with boys, and even a desire to become pregnant.This is a decent book While there s nothing really profound here, there is an honest look at what life is like for a teenager in this position While reading it, you just know that Samantha s life would be better if only the people in her life were better towards her I liked the ending, since I was left feeling sure that things were finally getting better for Sam.With as fast of a read as this one is, I suppose it s worth picking up and spending an hour or two on The protagonist is Samantha who is a good runner and who is not good in math and who call her self a middle girl and also her mother left her with the father one day she meet a boy name Farouk and they start hanging out with the boy and theshe hangout with the him theshe start to think about him and in track her record start to drop because she make excuse so she could hangout with the boy the book mostly tells story about how the girl comes back to her normal life from the life The protagonist is Samantha

how the girl comes back to her normal life from the life that had changed sense the Farouk came to her life.My favorite part from the book is when the girl meets her mother.I like this part because she haven t seen her mother sense her mother had left her I would recommended this book to people who like emotion because in the book there is lots of emotion part like when the boy stop talking with the girl,also when the boy sits with other girl in class, and when the boy stop giving ride to the girl.this book is awesome and also you will learn a lot from the book about life This book is about a young girl named Sam that is trying to find herself, along with love After the jock at their school dies, a new mysterious boy named Farouk moves in Sam takes a great interest in the mysterious boy I would recommend this book to people looking for an in depth, emotional book I liked how Melissa Lion wrote this book to resemble and actually be somewhat like a teenage girl s life Although some of the situations in this book could have been altered a little bit The myst This book is about a young girl named Sam that is trying to find herself, along with love After the jock at their school dies,

touch to the story He comes into Sam s life and takes her away from her best friend I didn t like how difficult it was to figure out how the jock died Overall, it was a very good book As I previously stated, Melissa Lion really relates the story to an actual teenage girl s life I recommend this book to young adults that like a raw, emotional book I m sure you ve read books that you just couldn t

no grand purpose, no overarching theme, just a collection of things people are doing that you don t really care about them or what happens to them.One of the few books that I ve read that I simply say
