Didn't like this book at all. April is quite spoiled, naive and childish. She and her decisions made me cringe.

This novel left me feeling kind of meh. While April herself is a decent narrator, some of the decisions she makes and the scrapes she gets into made me cringe. However, given the very sheltered, one might even say spoiled, life she's had it's not unbelievable. The novel itself is a decent read, with a great organizational structure built around the 10 things, but at the same time sliding back and forth through present time and her memories. While the book does focus on all of the (probably ill-advised) adventures April gets into during her independent phase, there is also an exploration of family and friendship and what that looks like. Not a bad read but one that's likely to make the parents of any teenage children cringe.

All the things April and her friends did surprised me, but it was really an amazing book. The author did a great job on this book.

I don't understand any of these good ratings. This book was really bland and predictable, with no character development whatsoever. You could tell exactly what was going to happen. The beginning of the book drags on and on and the end is very rushed. Don't waste your time reading this unless you're a mindless middleschooler who enjoys reading highschool books.
