The blog posts were well placed and flowed nicely with the story, but some of the email exchanges and instant message conversations were just sort of thrown into the narrative and that didn't work as well.Kayla's friendships weren't very well developed and I don't really understand why she's friends with some of them, but it may seem this way to me because I didn't read the first book.
Yeah, there are other possibilities out there—including the beyond-cute French foreign exchange student she's showing around town.
But when controversy erupts about the Oracle's advice, Kayla is sent reeling once again. Yet when her friends start seriously needing the Oracle, Kayla begins to focus on what really matters: Viv, Sharese, Amy and Ryan, her true-blue buds.
It made me apprehensive to continue reading when I hadn't read the first book.
My anal-retentive mind doesn't like to do things out of order, afraid I'm just not going to like it purely because I didn't get the foundation laid in the first book.
I've been through breakups, and I found myself completely relating to the emotions and advice described by Kayla. There's a strong sense of empowerment running through the book, but it's never annoying or overly "girl power." Instead, Kayla's advice provides sound guidance, while her descriptions of her emotions resonate.
