I really didn’t think this was the book that I read great things about. I couldn’t empathize with the main character, Evan. I couldn’t stand Evan. I think you have stuff that you can’t deal with, and either you figure out a way to deal with it or you walk away. I understand that he had problems, I did too, but I have a hard time figuring out people who go the mean way to deal. I also didn’t get why we never got any closure from the whole situation at the school. It would of been such a better story if we learned what had happened to her or the other guys involved. It was like we were in one story and yanked out and transposed to another. So dissatisfied, and don’t think I cannot empathize, been there and done that, and I have moved on.
