Yes, we definitely have to talk about it! I stayed up super late last night reading. If I could stop crying I could be finished before I pick up my son from school. Lol. But I keep crying... those damn tears get in the way. SMH. That's what I get for reading books like this when I'm PMSin.

The ending was beautiful. Okay, the whole story was beautiful. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to finish reading because it was seriously getting to me. Haha! I'm not a big crier except when it comes to subjects like this. I'm glad I finished though. It's kind of a happy sad...? What are your thoughts?

I liked how no one was a "Mary Sue" character, everyone had perfections and faults.

The ending was wonderful. I think I reread it like 3 times.

I think I liked it so much because I went into it with the knowledge of what it was: a book with overly intelligent, overly witty, overly dramatic teenagers. Yes, I'd have plenty of criticisms if those qualities are taken into account. But the story, wit, and message triumphed all that in my opinion and I can forgive and forget everything mentioned above for that reason. All of the aspects that were "overly" intense allowed the author to be complex and deep which made me think and I liked that most of all.
