A book with great laughs and characters you'll love instantly.

Though many people will look at the "Not Age Appropriate" sides of the book, it should not over look that fact that it’s a great book that will hook you in and not let go until you're done. It’s for any teenager to read if they feel like they have to hide who they truly are. The characters are relatable and you feel like you want to become friends with the characters. They're realistic and believable to read and you'll want to know what's going to happen next for them. It's a book that will entertain you and it'll teach you a lesson on lying and taking chances. I personally loved this book and have bought it to reread over again. I recommend people to read it to be entertained and have some great laughs at the characters predicaments.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great messages
