All these books with main characters who are idiots are staring to get to me. I feel like I need to go through another discussion about lifestyle choices and how not to be a complete moron while getting the guy. But I won't. Instead, I'll just say this.
You do not deserve Gage. I will be taking him from you until can truly appreciate him. Which will most likely be never. You suck.
This entire book frustrated me because Cassidy couldn't get her shit together for more than five minutes. She took everything in her life for granted, including her friends, Gage, and to some extent her parents. She starts off the summer learning to stand on her own two feet, with no help from her parents, which I thought was great. But just because you are an adult now doesn't mean you don't have responsibilities.
I understand that Cassidy was dealing with a very real, very tragic loss in the book. But instead of going crazy to escape what happened, she needed to be able to talk to someone. Her parents were dealing with their grief in their own way, and she took way too long to recognize it.
Gage was an amazing person. He repeatedly forgave Cassidy for all the stunts she pulled, he never pushed her to open up emotionally, or physically, and took care of his family. Perfect book boyfriend. I vote we rewrite the book, make it from Gage's perspective, and hook him up with Cassidy's ex-roommate.
After Cassidy ran off with Luca a was done with the book. It went downhill from there and didn't make much sense.
Gage gets all the stars for this book, Cassidy gets none.
