The adult sections of the book were so overly dramatic and insanely unreal, and I didn’t feel like I could respect the main character who is supposed to be smart and grounded. Books by Emma McLaughlin. Even at the age where true youth is in the rear view mirror—or perhaps especially because I’m at that age—I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed the 80’s and 90’s references throughout the book as well since I was also in school at that time.
