The best thing about this book is the main character Em, she is a smart, funny, sarcastic young woman who, after all the rough times she´s been through tries to be positive and strong when things are hard. As for the book as a whole it sadly left something to be desired as it was not as engaging as I would have hoped. Unfortunately.
