3.5/5I've had this book for about 2-3 years, and I *finally* finished it. It's a nice coming-of-age story. The characters were nuanced and loveable, but the overall plot arc felt slightly too short or too shallow. Everything that happened felt "almost, but not quite" despite me enjoying it. It's a quiet read. It's got some lovely Aussie flair to it, solid prose, and great character relationships. Tiff (our main character) gives interesting insights into people and life, and well, I'm pretty sure there wasn't a single character that I disliked. But really, this is the good stuff:I lean back against the gold stone and gaze around me. In among the dead there must be girls who were once like me and Kayla. They probably lived this very scene before us; asked the same questions about friendship, about life; wondered if it was all worthwhile. I think it is. Hope it is.-We must have had a thousand moments like this, being together and happy. Not one of them stands out from the rest. I suppose it's like eating chocolate. You love it at the time, but after you've liked the last trace from your lips, it's just gone.-Tiffany,I like you but you mightn't feel the same about m, and I wouldn't blame you. To save us both from any awkward moments I've figured out an easy way to do this. Nod if you're even slightly interested in getting to know me. Write me a ten page explanation if you're not.Davey-If you can't get a boy, get a book, that's my motto.Mine too, Tiff, mine too.
