I am not sure what my feelings are on this book. Which is why I have continually put off writing a post on it.
First things first. This is NOT a YA novel. It deal with drug use, teenage prostitution – and by extensions sex – and there is a bit of language in it too.
But the characters are real and flawed and have issues up to their eyeballs which I kind of liked, because the issues weren’t tiny things that the characters had blown out of proportion to make them seem - big they were serious.
I would have liked to have seen the relationship between James and Ashley developed and fleshed out a little bit more than it was. It just seemed to jump forward way too quickly.
I would also have liked it if the book was a bit longer. I felt a little cheated because the book stopped at 70% and the rest for extracts from other books – I was a little bit annoyed there.
It was a quick and differently weird read, definitely with ADULT themes.
