March 14, 2006 Bookends by Jane Green
358 pages. Finished 3/13/06.
I procrastinated my studying for my midterm by finishing this book last night. It wasn't what I expected. Some of the plot twists were obvious and some were unexpected. There was a detour for too many pages about HIV/AIDS when one of the characters is diagnosed that seemed to be more soapbox than actually advancing the plot. The main character makes one of my dream careers a reality in a way that I never could, which is rather frustrating, but fun at the same time.
All in all, I think the book could have been a lot shorter and still had the same effect, but it was a good distraction from my school reading.
