My favorite, by far.
Carson's snarkiness was an amazing touch. Things would happen that, in most books, would spark a monologue from the main character complaining (and I'm not saying that's a bad thing, it can be done very well), but Carson would typically just let it roll off his back with a comment that would send the other character walking away with their tail between their legs.
There was a unique voice for each character. I've seen the movie, as well, and he was spot on for most of the voices! I'm in awe.
I was in tears at the end - I don't think it's possible to NOT cry - but beside that, when Carson is in the journalism classroom with all of the students, letting them know that he's blackmailing them to write in his literary journal, he had a very vulnerable moment which was a side that really hadn't been shown yet. He says that he hate showing a vulnerable side, and it's something that many people can identify with.
While some of the writing could be improved (such as 'he said' 'she said' which is a very common problem in both this and his first book), the creativity and emotion behind the story is just perfect.
