This is a book about about a group of friend who are still finding out who they are. I found Jane Green’s writing very interesting. She would change who was narrating the book quite suddenly, and at first I found it a little annoying, but then found it really pretty neat. One person would be narrating and mention the another of the characters, and the next thing you know that other character is the one narrating without any warning at all. It did, at least, keep the story interesting and moving.

All the characters in this book were different and enjoyable in their own way, but every one of them was also “lost” in their own way. There was something about their life that just was not going right. But bring some old friends together to reminisce about the past and remember a good friend (the friend that kept their group connected in the first place) and all the wild puzzle pieces start coming back together again.

The book was a fun read, although it was not exactly the type of book that I was wanting to read at the time, it was able to keep me intrigued and reading.
