Very good story, but I was struck by its timing in my life. Nothing like strongly identifying with a main character to pull you into a story. She even throws glasses of pop as weapons, something that my friends are very familiar with!
I think I see a shower in my very near future.
UPDATE: Sarah Dessen is an LJer. She's writergrl. Should I place a fan comment on her journal? Maybe I'll read another one of her books first.
