I must say that the movie almost put me off reading the book! I am not going to go on and on about it (enough has been said already) but what I would like to say that it is the most realistic young adult novel I have ever read. (Yes even the swearing) It is witty and profound and poignant but in a very subtle and understated way. I really enjoyed it and read it in one sitting. But then I’m a fan of character driven books (if you are looking for plot twists don't bother) and this one did not disappoint. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.
