I don't remember her name, but the girl that is Mia's friend, set the tone of the book for me after she bounded into the hospital.
She is bitching at her mother about not crying and being strong for her. How in the hell can you talk to your mom like that while your friend, who is dying in a hospital, just lost both her parents? She is an orphan now. She will never get to see her mother mourn over anything again.
I hated her from then on out. I couldn't fall in love with the book because of her (yes, very small part, but she made a big impact with her nasty attitude).
It started out boring, then some stuff happened in the flashbacks, and then it ended. Boom. Just like that.
Not the best. But I will still see the movie. Only reason I read it in the first place.
