Leave Me by Gayle Forman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Initially, I did not love this story, but it grew on me by the end, enough that I felt slightly more satisfied that I hadn't completely wasted my time.
My major complaint, beyond the initial disconnect, is that the story doesn't end far from where it started. None of the major issues are resolved, or even addressed. None of the mysteries are answered. Threads start and then just drop. Kerplop. Never to be picked back up.
While some of the characters are interesting, the majority of them don't change or grow.
