For now, I thought I'd submit you to another review. My writing partner in crime, MB, just released her second book. I got a chance to read it when it was a serial on her FB page and again when she needed a beta. Both times I found the story hilarious.
Usually, I am not a big fan of love triangles. They drive me nuts. The girl always seems to be leading the two boys around and never deciding on one. Oh, I love them both and can't stand to not have either in my life. Infuriating. That said, MB did an excellent job of making a love triangle that did not make me want to strangle Darcy. She was truly conflicted over which boy she liked: Chaz or Judd. Both had their redeeming qualities that attracted her. Both also made her wonder if she was just a passing fancy. A new novelty that would lose their interest after awhile. In most YA you can figure out who the girl is going to pick in the end. She favors one boy and it shows. In the end I feel like she's being a giant bitch for leading the one around. I wasn't sure who Darcy would end up with at first. She didn't seem to favor Judd or Chaz.
The cast of characters was well rounded. The animosity between Darcy and her sister was very realistic. They bickered and snapped at each other, wanted nothing to do with the other. But even then, Darcy still jumped to protect her sister, at times refusing to tell the truth and getting into more trouble as a result. Chaz was just a dream. He seemed to be the all American boy and a loyal friend. His persistance in Darcy was cute and her reaction to him was amusing. Judd is the bad boy and MB did a great job of making him one without making him annoying. But my favorite character of all was Judd's sister, Jazz. Jazz just rocked. She had hilarious lines and helped keep the story light and funny. But she also provided seriousness when the story called.
While this story is humorous, it's also about bullying. Darcy is bullied for wearing the ICP make up, but she never lets it get her down. She hits back with snark just as hard and refuses to change for anyone but herself. Her final revenge on her bullies was well deserved... if a bit heavy w/ toilet humor.
You can pick up your own copy at Amazon. MB also has another book called Near Death available as well. Don't forget to check her blog out or stalk her on Twitter.
