My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Perhaps I’d give it a 1.5, because I neither liked nor disliked it. It was fairly evenly in-between, and if it’d had more funny moments I might have upped it to a 2, maybe 2.5.

I wasn’t fond of the writing style (or the first person narrative), which always makes it a lot harder for me to get into books. Even though it was only 60-some pages long, I found myself skimming through (And perhaps because it was only 60-some pages was the only reason I finished it).
It had some moderately funny moments (none to laugh out loud, but enough to make me smile a couple of times, but nothing like what I expected from the title and cover), I liked the idea of the story behind it but the ending ruined it for me, and the characters I didn’t really care much for (also part of why I skimmed through). Just when I was starting to care a little about the characters, the story was ending/ended.
Lovely cover, though.

It was, in brief, quiet a letdown and one of those “Don’t judge a book by its cover” moments.
