Plot.  Characterization. Prose style.  By the end of the story I was convinced that the writer has no clue about any of the basic elements of a novel.  She produced a painful to read, aimless drift of a book that I struggle to classify, a weird amalgam of adult contemporary thriller and YA mean girl teen angst, with none of the pieces well crafted.

Given the current trend in fiction, it's not surprising that main character TifAni (or mercifully, just Ani for much of the book) is unlikable.  But her story is unsurprising (even the "big twist"), unbelievable, and it failed to involve me.  I simply didn't care about Ani's adversity, self-inflicted or otherwise, and its aftermath.
