This novel fulfills all the benchmarks of a successful YA book. Vivacious ingenue. Check. Reluctant hunky love interest. Check. Rite of passage intrigue. Check. Oh, as long as you take what the narrator says with a large heap of salt. This book should come with its own salt-lick on that account. This isn't a bad thing, mind you. Verona will make you laugh and cringe in equal parts. You can tell from the beginning you are witnessing a train-wreck and in typical rubbernecking fashion you can't help but slowly turn each page to witness the inevitable. The writing is clean and the story expertly put together. Well done!
Which means, from a characterization standpoint, Hatton did his damn job. He somehow manages to write her diary in such a way that you never lose Verona, but you can read between the lines and piece together what's really going on. As things got crazier and her sociopathy began claiming victims, I liked her even less, but it didn't really matter; the peripheral characters evoked my sympathy sufficiently, and besides, I wanted to know where the hell it was all going. How could such a scenario end? How far would she go?
The humor is also well-paced; dry and often at Verona's expense without her realizing it.
All in all, it was a darkly humorous and well-paced book.
Meet Verona Cassidy. Dysfunctional. Delusional. Disturbed.
When the 15-year-old misfit sees the strikingly handsome garbageman outside her bedroom window, it's love at first sight. But love doesn't always look back the same way.
That won't stop Verona from winning his heart... at any cost. Sometimes people get used. Sometimes people get hurt. Sometimes people die.
Verona Cassidy was a very crazy person, but in an entertaining way. This book is definitely one I would not have added it to my read list, had I not seen it here on Goodreads, but most definitely am glad I read it.
