Synopsis from Goodreads

Seventeen year old Miley is always in a whirlwind trying to keep up the facade of being perfect.

On the outside she is what everyone expects. On the inside she is dying. She deals with what most teenage girls deal with, not feeling pretty enough or smart enough. Her best friend doesn't do much on helping the self esteem either.

And why does this one boy she has known from kindergarten but never really had a conversation with all of a sudden keep popping up in places she happens to be?


*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I had a bit of a problem getting into this book right from the start. I think the main problem that I had personally is that some of the dialogue felt really unnatural. It was small things, but it bugged me because the flow of the story seemed to get messed up a little.
This might not be an issue for everyone but for me it really was. I just couldn't get into it.
I found also that for me the pace of the story wasn't great. I kept thinking as I was reading that the book could have done with being more fleshed out.

This is just my opinion, and there were parts of the book which were pretty good. I just felt like it could have done with further editing.
