As you can see, I gave this a two star rating. I thought the synposis looked really interesting, but I just wasn't impressed at all with the story line. In my opinion, Veronica was a lousy protagonist. She constantly describes herself as fat and doesn't understand why anyone would want her. Even to the last few chapters she was doing this, and I really just wanted her to buck up and be happy with herself. I don't see her as a good role-model type protagonist.
I think I dislike nearly every character in this book too, which is a big issue. Len was okay, but uhhhm he seemed horny to me. . Bill was the only character I fully liked. And Violet, but does she even count as a character—or pet?
Also, on the horny note, this is book definitely has some racy scenes, which include anything but. I was not expecting that going in, so fair warning to anyone else.
I guess I'd recommend this to some people, but not everyone.
