How to Ruin a Summer Vacation (How to Ruin, #1) - Simone Elkeles
I'm sorry, is it just me or this book actually feels broken and incomplete?

Ok, let's start from the beginning. The protagonist Amy is one of the most annoying characters I've ever encountered in a book. And I mean it. Her head is a hollow space filled with crazy thoughts, constantly triggered by what appears to be ADD on the loose, and a boobs fixation that's just about over the roof. And her emotions? Don't even get me started there, 'coz there's nothing positive I can say about that. People, she's very deep into Oompa Loopma Land, that's fo show...

There is something missing in this story, and it's missing really bad. So bad, that I caught myself asking: Was Simone Elkeles in some kind of a hurry while writing this book? Was she rushing things so much that she missed some obviously important parts of the storyline? To put it simple--things happened. But how, that I cannot say. Why? Because the most important stuff was never written.

Nevertheless, this book actually made me laugh a couple of times (and quite frankly I'm feeling generous tonight), so I'm giving it 2 stars. Although I'm not sure if I'll read the other two books of the series or any other of Simone Elkeles' books, for that matter.
