Rating: 2 ½ out of 5.
Eh… good book overall. It is about three best friends: Nina, Avery, & Mel. During junior year summer, Nina leaves off to Stanford camp and she meets Steve, however at the end of the camp they won’t be able to see each other for a year. During that time, Avery and Mel get close. I mean REALLY close. When Nina returns, she doesn’t know what has been going on for two months. During the school year, Avery becomes weirded out about the whole “lesbian” thing because she says she isn’t gay, Mel says she’s known all along. Meanwhile, Nina and Steve seem to be doing good, until Steve randomly dumps Nina for another girl. Nina gets crushed on by a friend of Mel’s at work named Parker. She wants Steve, she wants Parker, she wants other guys… she becomes self-conscious because rumors spread about her friends being gay.
It was pretty long and not that good for the first about 200 pages. Then so many twists happened that my mouth was open quite literally a lot. I’ve never read a story like this (having to do with lesbians) and it was pretty good. The story is good, not great though. I dislike third-person, it took me a while to get into the habit of it. There was a lot of characters also. Many things were left unanswered like Nina & Steve or Nina & Parker? But I learned a new view on various things.
