This book didn't do it for me. All the obscure references to movies and books just kind of irked me. It reminded me of Love Walked In but in a bad way. And I will admit to skimming some of the middle of this novel. It's an ARC, so quite a bit of it wasn't finished. The pictures weren't all drawn in yet, but I don't think that would have helped. I'd like to see a finished copy when this book comes out.
Min's letter was a little long and very detailed. It's cleverly written, but some of the paragraphs are actually pages long. That's a little distracting for me. And the dialogue just didn't feel like it was coming from high school juniors sometimes. Ed seems like a douche, but I guess that's clear since they broke up. And poor Al. He is so understanding and slightly desperate.
This wasn't a bad book, really. I just didn't get into it. Maybe it was the timing, but I feel like a good book will reel me in at any time. But maybe someone else will like this one. Give it a shot, because it was definitely an interesting read. Just not entirely for me.
Side note: I think this book was made from lead because it's the heaviest book I've ever read. It's not because it's that long. It's just HEAVY.
