I get what the author was going for— it just didn’t work for me. The book promised to be tragic and it was; just not in the right way. The story had potential and I was excited to read it, but The Story of Awkwardfell flat. Besides the awkward sex mentions I felt like I was reading a subpar middle grade novel.
If it wasn’t for my complete boredom, insomnia, and the fact that I hate leaving a book unfinished I probably wouldn’t have gotten past the first 100 pages.
