2.5 stars. This book had so much fabulous potential, but it floundered after about 47% and then resurfaced for the last few pages. I have seen a lot of stories like this. It is as if the author had a beginning they worked diligently on, and an ending they took the time to polish, but then it is like they got bored or disenchanted and threw any old thing in-between to connect the two. There started to be punctuation and grammar mistakes, continuity problems, clumsy sentence structure; and she even mixed up the names of two characters at one point. Characters who were never in the same scenes because they lived in two different states! Even though the author said she was a Photography major, her descriptions of photography class and assignments were way off; developing film and printing photos is not the same thing. She also wrote some pretty insensitive things like, the MC had to wash the smell of Chinatown off so she wouldn't smell offensive for her date. Really? But the dress she bought from Chinatown for her date that night would have smelled like Chinatown. This was twice as bad from a character who only deemed it necessary to shower if she got noticeably dirty; body odor be damed! This was not presented as a personality quirk either. It made it sound like this was normal for Texas girls. Anyway, all in all, about one half of this book was wonderful. The other half was a mess. This was recommended to me as a book for a anti-bullying read-a-thon, but I don't know why because there was no bullying in it. It is, however, a story about mental illness. Another reason it is a shame this book petered out halfway.

Wonderful book. The way the story is layed out draws You into the book. The past and present are interwoven, showing the interplay between the two. You are left wanting to turn the page to glimpse a little deeper into the characters and their minds...
Fantastic!

Magenta Periwinkle's first novel about coming of age in NYC, has many unexpected twists and turns. It is not your average read and refreshingly different! I can wait to read her future books!

A story of a girl who moves to NYC to start art school and escape a trauma in a circle of friends. But she soon learns that starting a new life is not easy and that death is always close behind. In a style like J.D. Salinger and Jack Kerouac, Sentimental Bullsh#*t should please the kind of reader into deep deep deep character study that still manages push a story forward.

Minus some grammatical errors and over looks I really enjoyed this book. I didn't mind spending the 99 cents that I had to on it. I would suggest it to friends. It's a quick read not to bad
