This book was not as good as I anticipated. Between the use of language and the characters I got bored easily. One of the things I liked was the way that Beverley Brenna talked off the future, black and foggy. I love that.
The characters did not appear to play a great part in the story, but let's talk about them anyways:
Taylor: I did learn quite a bit about Autism. It bothered me that she wasn't well described.
Her Mom: She seemed confused, and didn't think that her daughter was competent. She didn't understand Taylor at all.
Danny: He was shown kinda as a jerk. Didn't learn much about him.
Paul: He was one of the nicest in the story, but he shouldn't have kissed Taylor though. That's just weird. And then Taylor just let it go. WTF!
Favorite/Memorable Lines and Moments:
"Maybe she isn't mad. Maybe she's thinking about something else... Maybe she saw a spide and is trying to disintegrate it with a broom. Or she could be tired and trying to decide wheather to shatter the dishes instead of washing them."
"This file is to share my thoughts and feelings, like my English teacher said, but more importantly, it's to help me sort things out. Preferably before I do something dumb. However, i know that being dumb is human. So I don't mind being dumb. With the following qualifiers:
1.I don't want to look dumb around my mother's boyfriend because he is dumb and that would make two of us.
2. I don't want to look dumb around my mother because she'll say, "I told you so."
3. I don't want to look dumb around boys."
" 'What do yu eat a crow asked a black bear.
'Berries and seeds. And kangaroos,' said the black bear."
"I don't mind thinking about the past passing, but I don't like thinking about the future coming. The Future. I can see myself standing on the edge of a cliff that drops off into night."
" I don't want wine again because of it tasting like fish."
" 'It's ok. You did not behave badly even though my mom wanted to put you in jail. You are my friend.' "
Thanks for reading guys and sorry for the depressing review and spoiler.
