Well holy crap. I really truly loved this book. When I started to read this book I was scared as hell that it was going to be one of those books that had the prettiest covers but then had the crappiest plot line and story. Thank God that didn't happen! 

This book was very well written. The writing style was really hard to follow for the first hundred pages. It was very confusing to read, but eventually I got used to it and so I decided not to judge the book on that. 

Then oh my God! When she kissed Hugo! I think I literally punched the wall. Not kidding. I was pissed...not just pissed, like burning rage that makes you want to go Hitler on people...well maybe not that mad, but I was pissed. Then she saw Elizabeth and she totally told Hugo off. You go girl! 

Ben is such a freaking sweetheart. I can totally picture him as one of those popular guys that are extremely shy with shaggy brown hair. *Sigh* He's just so...perfect. I really hope that I find my Ben one day. He's the type of guy that I want. Sweet, cute, and caring. 

I FREAKING LOVE ZACH! Zachary I love you. Too bad your gay. Grrrr. I loved how in this book they didn't make him overly gay that it was obvious. He was just like a normal guy except that he liked other guys. He didn't like girls. 

Phoebe I just didn't understand. I kept on forgetting who she was. She was just that person in the background who no one really cared about. I thought that she could have been incorporated better but I honestly don't care. Is she some girl. I really liked her as a character. She was very entertaining for some reason. 

Now Max, the main character. You are like the best main character ever! I want to give a Best Character Award/Best Personality Award or just Most Vivid Character Award. She is so human...yeah, I know. Of course she's human, that is suppose to be the point. I've read books that the characters just seem so fake. They make these decision that any real person would have trouble making, but Max didn't do that. If it was one of those fake characters she would have never kissed Hugo or have kissed Hugo then realize what she did was wrong and bitch slap him. Not Max, she actually spent the night with him. That really made her come to life. Some people would like to think that they would resist but they probably wouldn't. *cough* me *cough* 

Yeah....Well this book is definitely going on my Books Worth Reading List. GO READ THIS BOOK PEOPLE! I loved this book. Salute to Emma McLaughlin.

Review: 5 out of 5 stars!!
