I really enjoyed reading this book because of the strong character development and the original storyline. Definitely a 4/4. The only issue with it I had was the constant writing in the present tense. It distracted me occasionally and sometimes took away from the moment.

I enjoyed reading this book. I especially enjoyed the sudden twists in the plot. I was a little let down, however, that the plot didn't go in a particular direction I was thinking of, but it still ended up being a good story. Due to the number of grammatical errors, I could only give it 3 stars.

Adam did something really sensible by not confronting the other guy concerning what he did to his girlfriend and that really got me. It was actually nice. I will rate it 3 stars.

I found this book really interesting. Carly’s character in the story kept me engaged. I also love the way Adam and Carly became a team as it’s easily relatable in our everyday lives. I would rate it 3 out of 4 because it’s seems to based on young life.

I personally hated the book, though it seems like I'm in the minority. The characters didn't feel believable, I found Adam and Carly's relationship to be rushed since we never see it get built up. The action in the back half of the book was just unsatisfying and there weren't any real stakes since it was never clear how much, and in some cases what, a character could do.

I'm happy to see I'm not alone in this :P I also just didn't like the writing style, and the build-up was very slow, while the ending was very rushed indeed.
