Easily my least favorite book

When I first picked up this book I thought I would be reading an amazing story about a girl coming into her own, gaining self-confidence and learning that you shouldn't care what others think of you.

Instead I was met by a selfish, boy-crazy girl that only cared about being popular. The story was built around the girl only worrying about other people’s view of her. They didn't build upon the notes or her disease much at all, instead they were written as if it was just a background to the setting.

Honestly, I wouldn't have been this aggravated if it wasn't for the misleading summary that included things that were barely built upon. The main character was barely dynamic, and even when it came to the resolution, it was very lackluster, like most of the book.

Overall a very disappointing read, that even after a year, I still have an unyielding burning hatred for this book.
