As always, Sharon Flake delivers a great, realistic, read. I love that it's not a fairy tale where all goes well. The characters are interesting, flawed, but yet they grow and mature.

Well, let's start with the good: Autumn and Adonis both have remarkably distinct voices. They feel like authentic teenagers with an interesting push-and-pull relationship (though it feels more middle-grade than freshman high school). Their home life also gets ample page time, and Autumn's parents are equally interesting characters, while Adonis's mother is just plain sweet. However, the growth of their character arcs never feel complete. And that is the problem with the entire book: no satisfactory resolution ties up any of the subplots or the main plot. Though Autumn turns around her reading problem and her attitude toward her illiteracy, the consequences related to her illiteracy (e.g. getting kicked off of the wrestling team) aren't shown as resolved. Autumn and Adonis's relationship still isn't public by the end of the novel, lending it an unhealthy tinge. And the conflict between Adonis and Peach doesn't reach any kind of conclusion.
