So, I laughed at a few spots (out loud even), but generally? I thought this was really dumb, and the main character was needlessly silly and self-centered. There was no point (that I could discern), no growth (she was silly all the way through), and I can’t figure out why this was considered deserving of a Printz honor.
I know I’m not the target audience, but this felt to me like the worst of what YA has to offer — the kind of book that gets held up when people want to pooh-pooh YA.
As I said about a previous book, I don’t necessarily have to “like” a character to care about them, but in this case, not only did I not like Georgia, I didn’t really care about what happened to her.
From looking at reviews and ratings, I can tell that plenty of other people did think this book was pretty great. I won’t hold it against them, I guess.
