DNF at 25% because my library loan expired and I'm bored.

*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.*

I had a really hard time with this book. I couldn’t stand the characters and felt like they were all being really petty with one another, and the plot was meh. I think the marketing let me down on this one, because I thought I was getting a story with great female friendships and sure, life was hard, but friends were great. Instead, the relationships seem to me like a how-to in ruining friendships and relationships, and a lot of each character’s problems came from her not being able to grow up and live in reality.

It didn’t seem particularly funny to me, and honestly, nothing really happened. I don’t think any of the characters showed a great deal of growth throughout the novel, and the plot was stagnant, except for the characters moving to different locations. There were some points that interested me, like one of the friends having to navigate being the only one who’s a mom; another found out that she’s actually not happy in her romantic relationship. These things are what got me through, but overall, it was fine and kind of boring. I was hoping for something more.

Very much a slice-of-life story that left me wondering about the title and the point, but not necessarily in a bad way.

Claire is just as quirky as ever but at the end I found myself not liking her as much. Claire still has the black and white dreams that draw attention to her future, but Becca seems to be growing apart from her and Andy seems to be avoiding her so she feels left out. In her efforts to deal with her issues, she ends up not talking to practically any of her friends. Then she gets let in on Becca's big secret, and involved in a new mystery.

I idn't like that the cameo punished Claire for going out with Alex. Andy wasn't behaving well this book and she was extremely patient with him. She had every right to take someone else when he refused to go. I also thought that Claire was being extremely naive not to realize that the Blue Moon's activities reflected well on the girls parents and were repayed with favors. The mystery was interesting and I was surprised when I found out who was responsible for all the trouble. The dreams were a lot clearer and it was much easier to see how they fit into the bigger picture. I liked that Claire's powers did develop in the second story and she wasn't still stuck being frustrated.… (mer)
