I didn't realize ths is meant to be young adult fiction. I think it is but even so, it is just plain dumb. I couldn't get thru it. The characters were unbelievable and I can't even comment on the story because I did not listen enough. And the reader? She states everything like a question? Like she's 12 and wants to run with the cool girls? I didn't waste my time. Wish I had nt wasted my money.
For a story so highly rated I was not impressed. It was definitely a sad story but not in a gut wrenching devastating painful way.
The Story is beautiful, have a box of tissue near when you listen to it. However I had a hard time picturing the character as a high school girl the voice was more suited to the grandmother... although she is clear and can portray emotion It was hard to believe at times.
I listened to the book and had to make myself keep listening. Plot Ok. Narrator Ok. Just not my type of book. I kept wanting her to just get it over with. To me it was not worth the credit.
I know others have really liked this, but I had to abandon it..it just wasn't going anywhere. Of course when your main character is basically in a coma ( or brain dead), its hard to get a story going. The entire time she's floating around talking about things that happened in the past. It was just really boring, she couldn't make me care about this girl.
