Such a great summer read! It was a very exciting and fast-paced read. The characters were clear and interesting. There were a few concepts that I wish had been explored a little bit more but there was a lot of ground to cover and it certainly didn't ruin my experience of the book. I liked the multiple perspectives and the complexity it offered every character. The little snippets of party guests' lives and stories were very cool as well. Cool story, although not my fav Taylor Jenkins Reid book.
