This book had a unique and cool storyline. Sadly, the execution was horrible, I was so excited to read a book told from the point of view of an African-American/Italian girl, you don't really see that often. But the dialogue and the characters were horrible. The sidekick was a gay character and that had me so excited but god, Olivia Samms made me hate him, constantly bringing up his sexuality and all the backhand comments she made about him were horrible. The author constantly called the protagonist African American hair 'nappy'. Ugh, Don't bother wasting your time reading this book.
