Our Song

Our Song - Jordanna Fraiberg (some spoilers in the following review)Some parts of this book I liked, some I didn't. I couldn't bring myself to side with Olive; I just didn't understand her and she frustrated me. I wanted to slap her and yell: goddamnit! Listen to your best friend!! The ending was also too perfect. It was all tied up in a neat little bow. Suddenly her mom was cool and understanding, and I don't understand how renting a hotel room for three hours a night is enough to sleep away nightmares. It was like a problem created for no realistic reason. However, I really enjoyed the character of Nick (although I was expecting more from his back story than what we got). I wish Olive didn't rely on boys so much to 'save' her. And when she went back to Derek so easily after she was supposedly over him, I wanted to scream. Overall, not a story I see myself rereading, but it was okay. I think I just expected more from the secrets everyone was hiding than what was really there.
