I Can see this book being made into a movie. Oh how I can see this book being made into a movie. I've never enjoyed a book as much as I've enjoyed this one. About the only part of this book that made me upset is that Cassandra never called or emailed Maggie to let her know she was all right. I was so sad when Maggie walked out of her own apartment and told Cass. "If you're going to go then go now." I could tell that Maggie really liked Cass and even though she knew that Cass had to eventually go back. She was hopping that they could build something even if it was long distance but Cass just ran out and never looked back. It made me feel like Cass used Maggie. So I felt bad for Maggie. But I was really happy that Cass fought to keep Heather. That was likely the highlight of the whole story.

The nuanced cast of characters is a strong appeal element here. And then there is the really wacky musical, along the lines of the one in Will Grayson, Will Grayson (by David Levithan and John Green) but with lots of fake blood.

Highly recommended. Grade 7 and up.
