Review, Winner, and new Twitter :D

Her and Me and You
By: Lauren Strasnick
First love, broken friendships, and heartache all play a part in this evocative, voice-driven novel about Alex, a girl whose world is ripped apart when her father’s affair splits her family in two.

Alex moves with her mess of a mother to a new town, where she is befriended by hot, enigmatic Fred—and alternately flirted with and cold-shouldered by Fred’s twin sister, Adina. Others warn Alex to steer clear of the twins, whose sibling relationship is considered abnormal at best, but there’s just something about Fred—and something about Adina—that draws Alex to them and makes her want to be part of their crazy world…no matter the consequences.

I really don't know what to say about this book, I liked it but at the same time I thought it was lacking. I felt bad for Alex, an alcholic mother and "slutty" father are not good things to have in your life. I liked the interactiosn between Fred and Adina and how they seemed to be one person before Alex came into the picture. I found Adina's jelousy to be very intersting and what she does to try and stake her claim...WOW! O.o but this is where I have my issue with this book: The Ending. It just ends, theres this huge event where Adina ends up in the hospital but nothing is ever really resolved between her and Alex. We just asume that things are going to be okay. I was actually in shock when it was over.
so I'd give this a B-
