I felt like I was reading the script for a season of My So Called Life. Maybe the people I surround myself with are more mature than most, but I don't think so. They are most certainly more adult than these pre-teens. Lexi was supposed to be working on her graduate degree, and Jack turned 25, seriously? No. I give it 2.5 stars because it was at least good enough to keep me reading, though it shames me to admit it.
