The 1st 3rd of the book was pretty good, until the Tabloid incident happened. It reminded me of a Soap Opera. Lots of discussions and explaining, giving me blow by blow details instead of showing me. The whole, why do you call me Bear thing, just blew it for me. Josh and the whole scene with his sister was so "False." Yeah, that's it. This book is for the starving reader who just needs something to read right now. Gratification not guaranteed.
