There are YA books that hit on edgy issues such as, sex, bulimia, teen pregnancy, death of parents, finding out you are not who you thought you were, rape and parental stress to succeed....This book had ALL of these things, it was A LOT to take for just one young girl. Some of the issues could have been drawn out more, and some could have been taken out all together. NOT to say that PJ Sharon didn't do an AMAZING job at making all these issues not just believable, but they WORKED!
For me, as a reader, it was a bit much. As a fellow writer, it was a bit much. There were some unnecessary secondary characters that could have been taken out, and I would have suggested taking out one or two of the conflict issues, maybe drawing out some of the main issues a bit longer. I felt as if the conflict was piled on and forced on the reader.
But as I said, PJ Sharon did an amazing job at making ALL THE CHAOS work. There was some "God" talk, which doesn't bother me in the least, but this is coming from a 13-yr Catholic School Veteran. In my opinion, if I was dealing with all of the things Penny was dealing with, I'd be praying too!!
As for the main characters, Penny was your average girl, I didn't really get too much more out of her, but I liked her. But I think because there was so many issues going on at the same time, we couldn't really get a good read on her feelings about just one thing, or how she would react in just one situation.
As for our Hero, Carter McCray....well....he freaked out after he found out Penny lied to him, then proceeds to do something that didn't fit his character. I thought he was a smart and handsome boy, but I thought he should have tried a little harder. I don't want to give anything away, so I can't explain his reactions to different issues going on, but again, I think there was too much going on with Penny, that everything else just got lost in the shuffle.
Funny thing is, aside from all the craziness, I liked the book. I wasn't sure where it was going, but I liked it. I'd say give it a chance, or if you have an OLDER YA, have them read it. This book touches on many issues that any Young Adult might face, and PJ Sharon "writes" great advice/options to all teens facing these issues.
I will give Ms. Sharon props for mentioning Author, Kristan Higgins in this book!!
Also, the interaction between Carter and Penny was so sporadic that I kept wishing for more. I feel that we didn't really get to know Carter very well. The happiness to drama ratio was not balanced for my liking.
Do I regret reading this book? No. It is still a good read, just not epic.
Penny was dealing with numerous things that could break someone however in the end she gained support from an unlikely source.
The only parts I did not like was the repetitive of the scenario you would think she learned her lesson instead of repeating it constantly that grated on my nerves.
Overall this story was well written and put alot of things out there that is considered taboo. I enjoyed this story and it taught alot about myself as well and that is rare in a fiction book
