    I think most of my friends on Goodreads have either shelved this book to read or have read it I had to jump on that bandwagon but I was a bit scared You see most of them have loved it Except Erica But she is a hater rebel Usually books that everyone else loves and fangirl boys over tend to leave me dry.I actually liked this one
