I really liked this book! It was very sad and depressing but a great story of learning about herself and growing from a girl to a woman. The middle part made me so angry because she was letting him walk all over her but she finally realized she was better than that and got the courage to make a change.

Weitz has created a very likeable character in Natalie Bloom, whom you shadow as she experiences the University of Connecticut and all the pieces of university life. Natalie is a well-rounded character, with insight that a wide variety of readers can relate to. However, halfway through the book, the plot becomes not unlike a broken record, and the narrative becomes scratchy and dull. It is clear the suicide of a close family member haunts Natalie, but is it responsible for her fall from straight A's, or is it her desire to fit in? We don't really find out. The end suddenly jumps from present tense to future tense within paragraphs, and the ending is less than satisfying. I was really disappointed.
