This was a really good book. I read through it so quickly and it was overall enjoyable. I liked the diverse characters, but I thought the various perspectives were odd. At least the use of "you" in Sebby's chapter. The end was kind of a pleasant surprise from most books

Baby, listen. This book is beautiful on SO MANY LEVELS! Like, here I am, walking around, picking up some last minute books, when BAM, this wonderful magical piece showers me with its rainbow sparkles of beauty. I'm giving this a great rating, but 5 out of 5 is for the best book ever. (Sorry Scelsa)

Loved the main characters with all their flaws!

Another case of, "It's not you, it's me." Realistic fiction has an uphill road to climb to get into my good graces, and this book just couldn't make it. Probably someone else will love it.

Absolutely incredible novel. Not only was the plot totally engrossing (although somewhat similar to Perks of Being a Wallflower) the characters were really intriguing and interesting. The book deals with mature, darker matters like drugs, sex and others so if you are younger, you have been warned.

I am so glad that I read this book! It made me think of Perks of Being a Wallflower in the way that this band of misfits is so relatable. The strength of the friendships in the book help to balance out the struggles that the teens face, which meant it was never too angsty or too fluffy for me. Definitely a book that I'll recommend.

This book extremely incredable. With changes of POV form (I,He and You) that help you understand the story and kind of become in the book. Its simply amazing. Also this book is perfect for anybody who's gone through a tough time and trying to overcome it
