Laila Piedra doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, and definitely doesn't sneak into the 21-and-over clubs on the Lower East Side. The only sort of risk Laila enjoys is the peril she writes for the characters in her stories: epic sci-fi worlds full of quests, forbidden love, and robots. Her creative writing teacher has always told her she has a special talent. But three months before graduation, Laila's number one fan is replaced by Nadiya Nazarenko, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist who sees nothing at all special about Laila's writing.

A growing obsession with gaining Nazarenko's approval--and fixing her first-ever failing grade--leads to a series of unexpected adventures. Soon Laila is discovering the psychedelic highs and perilous lows of nightlife, and the beauty of temporary flings and ambiguity. But with her sanity and happiness on the line, Laila must figure out if enduring the unendurable really is the only way to greatness.

I didn’t really like the book. It just really wasn’t my type of book. It would be appreciated more by people who like high school drama-type stories.

It was hard to read the beginning when all the words were together with no spaces. I did like the way she writes her dialogue. The conversations flowed really easily between the characters. I also really liked the character development. They all had their personalities and own story behind them.

Overall the book wasn’t bad when it came to the writing but I didn’t like the plot that much. I would give it a 6 out of 10. - Anonymous
