I really don't have any reasonable reason to have not enjoyed this book. But something about it just didn't click with me.
It could be that is was so granola and at times unrealistic. Most teenagers do not act that way. Some of the situations made them seem completely naive while others contradicted their earlier thoughts.
I mean, it's completely unusual for a guy to let their friends make moves on their sisters. Especially if you know your friends are kinda creeps with girls. If any of you have brothers, you know what I'm talking about.
Jake and his siblings relationships was kinda strange to me. I'm not really sure how to explain it, but it just seemed unusual. That entire family really. They were super close and so. damn. nice. All the time.
Anyways, other than that, the book was actual pretty interesting. Jake's situation was unique and I enjoyed getting inside his head. Sam's situations was sad and at times I really felt for her. Although her story line just kinda came and went without much of an afterthought.
The ending was sweet and enjoyable.
