Let's start with honesty: I couldn't finish this. I don't know where I gave up exactly, somewhere around half way through. Maybe I'll be told later that it does get better and pick it back up, but for now… I just can't. Our narrator, Phoebe, rubbed me all the wrong ways and I can see her "quirky/cynical" attitude to be a major downfall of this book for many other readers. To make it worse: she has a dated cringe feeling, circa 2008 that I was never sure was supposed to be ironic or was a tragic style choice.

Moc se mi líbí, že autorka pro své vypravování zvolila deníkové záznamy, které cely příběh představují čtenáři. Moc fajn, nápad, který se dočkal i super zpracování.
Mně tu však chybělo nějaké vyvrcholení, něco, čím by se pro mě kniha krásně uzavřela. Tak plynul celý příběh v jedné rovině bez většího vychýlení. A tím pádem mě to už ke konci unavovalo.

started off bad but got really decent halfway through!
I loved the character development and every character felt so real so I congratulate the author for doing that in such a small book

Phoebe is just proper funny, I'm genuinely obsessed with her. Overall, a really nice, fun read about moody teenage girls, cats and friendships.
