This series was on top of my to-do list for years! I just waited until I had all books to read them back to back and now I do. Yay
I was so exited to dive into this book, that I began it with a grin on my face :)
This book started so good. It´s a bit different. King and Preppy - the way they met and the way they talked- LOVED it. The way the first chapter was made, really made me want to continue reading this book. :D
Preppy was definitely my fave character. He was awesome. Funny, weird and caring (as long as it´s about the ppl that mean sth to him). I really fell in love with him. I´d love to have a best friend like him <3
King is my No. 2 fave character. Sometimes he acted a bit stupid but that´s human, right?
Doe was fine. I didn´t connect to her the way I had to Preppy and King, but there´s still another book to come that can change it ;) But as a Designer myself, that they love to draw and sketch and make their own art is a huge plus point for this book :D
I kinda liked Bear but the bit I read about him wasn´t enough to make up my mind. He will have to prove himself to me in the following books :P
The story itself was good. Dark but also fun. This book made my grin, laugh...and cry :( It made me: think "whoa!" a few times. Some authors don´t want to write scenes that could disturb readers but TM Frazier doesn´t and I love it. I want to read about the bad stuff. Stuff that also happens to some in real life. Love TM Frazier for not being afraid to write those scenes. I def. was engrossed in this book and didn´t want to put it down!
I kinda knew what was going to happen as some ppl in the TM Frazier Facebook group spoilered (shame on you :P ) and also the titles of Preppy´s books give a clue. "The thing" that happened therefore wasn´t a surprise. But the scene at the closet when Doe found the letter and when she read it out loud- my eyes went blurry, I was tearing up, I was crying silently :(
SPOILER: Why did he had to die?! He didn´t deserve it :( :P I´ll miss him
There is one thing I´m kinda disappointed about. :P The pancakes are such a huge deal in the TM Frazier Facebook Group and in general everywhere ppl talk about this series. But now that I´ve read King- I don´t really get it. It was mentioned twice or so. Preppy made them once but he also was cooking other stuff. It´s not like this is a typical Preppy thing :/ But maybe I will understand it better when I read the other books of this series.
The ending was- wow. Interesting, sad, confusing and it def. makes me start reading book 2 asap! So many things I want to know!
I´m nur sure why I couldn´t rate this book higher. I really loved it but I was kinda missing sth too. Maybe I missed emotions? Like they are really throwing a fit or they are angry or sad or whatever. Maybe those emotions could have been more intense? Also sometimes, I think their conversations were a bit weird? Like nonstop talking? Not sure if I remember correctly but I think it seemed quite unnatural for someone to talk so much at once. Or it´s just me as I barely talk at all.
This book has quite a lot spelling/grammar mistakes :( TM Frazier needs a new Editor.
I´d love to have this book made into a movie. While reading this book, I had actors for Preppy and Grace in my mind. Doesn´t happen often to me. So I guess this means I want a movie about it! ;) :P
All in all- I can recommend it. Not to everyone, though, as not all love dark reads and are sensitive about a few topics but those who aren´t bothered by it should read this book!
