Review: A good friend of mine suggested I read this book. Thank goodness I listened! When this story begins, you think that it is a straight forward realistic fiction story. Girl has some issues at home. Girl meets boy. Boy dumps girl. Boy makes up with girl. The end. This book is so much more! E. Lockhart writes the book in such a way that you have to keep reading because you want to find out why. Why is Cady getting headaches? Why is her family so dysfunctional? Why is Gat being on again and off again as a boyfriend? You must read this book!
