I love a coming of age story set on a college campus – or so I thought. I wonder if I couldn't get into this one because it was too similar to my own college experience so I found myself cringing and bored instead of appreciative? Maybe. Ir struck me as the book I might have written when I was 23 and still overly-fascinated by myself... there's a lot of self-important navel-gazing, sexual exploration, bad romance, and Big Questions. Now that I'm twice that age, it's a yawn. I will say, however, that there are some LOL and poignant moments that suggest this author will be one to watch.
