I grabbed this off the clearance rack and I can see why it was there. I tried to be open minded but the characters are just so stereotypical it makes it hard to be open minded. There are multiple points of view and at times it's just too confusing.The characters all seem to have issues that point them in their current directions but there isn't just one ah-ha moment that it all makes sense.In the end I found myself flipping ahead to get through the book. Sorry...but I tried. 2 1/2 stars (when will Goodreads ever let 1/2 stars exist?). Definitely a fast summer type of read. Picked it up before My daughter graduated HS this year, thinking it'd be reading about what life is like in the DC area with a graduating senior. sure enough, seems to be. Although, it is a bit of a send-up. No question. Kids behaving badly. Neurotic parents. Parents behaving badly. A few people behaving well. Kind of like it really is. This book isn't for everyone. For those of us with older kids and/or in the DC area, it makes more sense.
