I think she grew somewhat, but I still wasn't happy where she ended up. I am glad that everything didn't end up rainbows and roses because that would have been completely out of line with her character, but I did want to see her tentatively moving in a new direction.

What I liked about this novel is that the narrative voice sounded like an authentic gossipy teenager.
It dealt with serious topics such as suicide, underage drinking, drugs, teenage sex, and STDs. Combine that with sarcasm and lots of teenage drama, and you have an entertaining novel. This is a quick read that you can finish in a couple of hours. I was expecting more suspense.
