Okay, so the first 65% of this book is five stars amazing. The last 35% is off the walls over the top creys. So yeah, a solid four stars and a couple of raised eyebrows. Here's why: kaje Harper has a great voice and writes really endearing characters. Really truly great characters. The plot got crazy weird at the end but what the hell, it was a fun ride. Recommended for the darling straight guys who turned out to be gay after all, the adorbs teenage son who was almost too surly to live, and the super weird college campus hijinks(!)Cynthia can go to hades.
