    Ivy feels as though her friends have shunned her (and they have, to a certain extent), and it's something I think we all go through at some point. I know I have, and so to me, Oleksyk's script and plot really ring true. The pettiness and social politics of high school are also familiar - unfortunately, the same sort of dynamics can arise in many workplaces. And Ivy's excitement over her connection with Josh - although it's artificial, thanks to his charm and manipulations - is easily relatable as well. I'm married to a wonderful woman, and our relationship started out as a long-distance thing as well. My point is this: one needn't connect with Ivy through one's teens years. Though it focuses on a teenager's coming of age, it's an adult story too in a lot of ways. There's a nice balance between chaos and serenity, between trivial drama and real crises. It's makes for an engaging read - as long as one gets past the initial vision of Ivy as a brat. Read Full Review
