This book really did mess with my mood, that's what's great about it. Especially at the beginning, I'm not usually a kind of person who thinks violent thoughts but the beginning of this book sure did make me think them. I really enjoyed this book, it was one of those read til you finish books. I loved that the plot was fun and fresh. I thought the characters were realistic and people I would love to meet in real life. I really thought this book was something that had a very deep message that everyone needs to hear no matter how you appear on the outside it's about how beautiful you are in the inside.
