    9. I ve been reading comments here and there about how this book is not that good and the central relationship is creepy and it is anti feminist THIS IS SO NOT TRUE Well, of course if you think it s not that good, that s your prerogative I won t go that far but I don t understand, either This book is amazing Judy is so completely accessible, and her roommates and college friends are so funny It s a joy to read about someone who is just so excited to do EVERYTHING, but not, of course, in a phony way [...]

    10. I always have a difficult time rating YA books Do I rate them as I enjoy them now, or as I would have enjoyed them had I read it as a young adult It s tricky.As a young adult I would probably rate this as a five star read As a forty something adult, I enjoyed it, but I wasn t like all over it I d say 3.5 Stars The author kept me reading, and I thought it was very sweet but I probably wouldn t reach for it to re read anytime soon And I m not sooo invested in the characters that I have to run out [...]
