I read 60% of this book in December and only finished it because it was finally due back to the library after multiple renewals. This book started off really enjoyable but then I found Charley’s voice to be too grating. It was non stop one liners. She couldn’t focus for more than 2 seconds on what was going on, she always had to insert some kind of smart ass remark. It was endearing at first but it eventually started to take away from the book.  I’m also not really sure there was a much of a central plot. It seemed like there were a bunch of mini stories all going on at once. I’m still interested to read the second book to see if the writing is more palatable.
