1.0

this book is generally criminal. the main character is best described as vindictive and bitter, which is felt more harshly as they are also the narrator. at times, their negativity is overwhelming. 
some parts were fun, but overall, it felt pretentious, desperate, and horrifically lacking in self awareness. 
the environment is effective however  - the feeling of late summer is well-captured. additionally, it reminded me of gold rush by taylor swift. so that was nice.

i would not recommend. this book did not deserve to be nominated for the carnegie award.
