I think I was confused, initially, by the fact that this book begins in high school and then the characters are adults later. So when I started reading, I assumed it was YA. I’m not much for reading YA. But I did enjoy this book. It was a nice short read, and had an interesting trajectory. In the end, I think I still was distracted by the beginning, and wished it wouldn’t have started in 2001.
