I'm leaning closer to a 2.5 for this one only because I didn't hate it, but I'm not sure I like where it's going. The change to Seth bothers me; the constant manipulation of Ash by Keenan is disturbing; and all the lying between so-called friends is relentless. I feel like this book is leading to a never ending angst fest and I can't be too excited about that. Not a bad read but not what I expected. There wasn't nearly as much Seth and Ash time as I thought there would be. Truth be told, I didn't mind Ash and Keenan getting closer for a few reasons, I just can't stand his being so cruel with her feelings.
