The worst book I’ve read in my adult life. It is shocking to me how this book is raved about, and how horrible it ended up being. My favorite part was the ending, but not because the book was over. The ending was also the saddest part of the entire book. I would’ve opted to not finish it, but I felt like I had to. I’m sorry I wasted the time. The audiobook narrator was insufferable too

This one's weird, don't know how to feel about it.

I get what its going for but the 'dark humor' and the end did not work well with all. It was just mean and 'Robot Chicken' edgy and I mean that in a pretty insulting manner. Same with the characters but I could have respected and analyzed them but author went to far into the irrephrehensible category with the characters to understand everyone's unlikability (meaning that the main character using slurs and being involved with a highschool student).

This book is so beautifully written. It is a true testament to Ottessa’s talent that she can write a book about a girl that does nothing and make it feel so profound. This main character is selfish, mean, and lazy but she is just like us. The portrayal of depression and substance abuse depicted in this book is so rich. This main character will touch those of us who have had similar struggles in life. I will be thinking of this book for months to come. I can’t wait to read more from the author.
