This book certainly tried hard to squeeze meaning out of every sentence, piece of dialogue, and action. It might have gotten a little clunky or wordy in its execution as well; there were a lot of things that could have been left unsaid. Nonetheless, cute and breezy it set out to do; cute and breezy it accomplished. I can't fault a book for trying so hard to be spectacular; you could practically FEEL how hard this book was trying.
So it was enjoyable, at best, but still kind of mediocre on my scale.
