I didn't hate this book. I just thought it was stupid.


I put off writing a review for a couple of days, because I couldn't put my finger on what bothered me about it, but then I found myself telling my mom today, "I just finished a book. It was stupid. And I kept reading it, hoping maybe it'd get better after the first few pages, but nope! It just kept being stupid." Then we laughed. 

It's not an irritating book, but nothing about it is delightful, either. The characters are stock and blah. The plot sounds like it has potential, but doesn't go much of anywhere. The dialogue is fairly grating. But I kept reading, because it did have a mildly entertaining quality. So.... Two stars.
