Summary: Lily begins passing notes with an anonymous person who sits in her seat in another section of her high school chemistry class. This person offers an outlet for her to talk about music and her crazy life. So who is this mystery person?
My Thoughts: This is a true Young Adult novel. Meaning this isn’t part of the blurred lines YA genre that sometimes tiptoes into maturer topics, but rather one that is sweet and innocent and everything a teen should be reading and connecting to. That being said, I have lived too much damn life to appreciate this book. It was cute and not poorly done, but I just have no patience for Lily’s melodrama and lack of perspective about her troubles. I think when I was her age I may have thought some of the things she struggles with as laborious, but as mentioned, I have outgrown that mentality. I can’t say that this book was advertised to me and my age group, but I like YA like I like candy. Sometimes I am just craving something sugary and sweet and so I indulge. Again, I would like to emphasize that this book isn’t bad, it would be perfect for a teen audience. And I think that does it…
