this is a book about a skinny, blonde, beautiful, inherently rich (but unemployed) white woman and don't you forget it. the protagonist is dry, edgy, and a little bit of a bitch- so mean to her friend!!! this is so much about how she wants to sleep that halfway through you're wondering what's actually happening plot wise and it doesn't start picking up until more than halfway through. also
Spoiler this book is literally about 9/11 and, i mean, it's mentioned earlier (chekhov  gun) but like.....fuck.

 This book was all over the place but my main issues with it were very personal so take my review with more than a grain of salt. (Even if I ignore the problems I had with it, I still would not praise it highly tho) If you should read it, be prepared for obscurity, feelings of disgust and a whole lot of hearing the same sentences over and over, is all I have to say at this point.
