  1. this book made you feel like you were the teens strugling. i hate reading so when my teacher recomended it. i figued the pages looked simple. i've never been able to say that i couldn't put down a book. but i went from haing reading to reading this book in 2 days. as the five characters got frustrated. i would get to the end of a chapter and find my jaws clenched and my fists tight. if the character was having problems with his/her trust in friends. it made me look in a diffrent perspective at the people i was assosiating myself with. i rate it 9/10. only because the ending was very suddle.
