This was an odd book, but I really loved it. I really enjoyed the author's style and reading all of the main character's thoughts, even though I didn't find her likeable at all.

Catcher in the rye if Holden was a privileged, lazy, adult, millennial.

I loved the prose of this book even though everyone sucks in it it made me attached to the characters.

 Goes to show good writing can really save a horrible protagonist in a book that nothing really happens. I felt that the end was a bit off personally. I would not recommend this book but I can’t say I hated it enough.
