Interesting and atmospheric

This book was amazing. My daughter made me read it and I whipped through it in a day. It was very untypical and held some surprises. The mood, especially, was intriguing and timeless - not your usual teen story. There were a few mentions of sex and some mild violence, so I'm giving it a 15 age rating, though I think a mature 14 year old would be fine.

Great writing style with very little substance

There are no positive role models in this story. While sex is not descriptive in this book everyone is having sex and all characters are in high school. One of the main characters is just a flat out horrible person, calling her a bully is putting it mildly.

Too much sex
