Maybe I expected too much of the book, maybe that's why I was a bit disappointed by reading it.
For my taste there was too much drama going on that didn't add nothing exciting to the story, the drama seemed at times very artificial and not like a natural development to what was going on.
I would have liked to read more about the romances that were going on and more about all the characters. The drama overshadowed everything and not in a good way. I also didn't like the cheating that was going on, it made it hard for me to like the heroine of the story. And I had some issues with how some of the drug abuse and the consequences of it were portrayed.
All in all this wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't as good and gripping as I expected it to be.
