    I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I just couldn't. I think it could be a good book, with some good editing and proofreading. The author needs to tell the story and let the reader decide how to feel about what is written, instead of constantly telling us what we are suppose to feel ever few sentences. Let the story tell itself, don't force it along. There is also an extreme overuse of exclamation points, which is something that annoys me, and again I feel as if my feelings are trying to be manipulated by the author. The story comes across as very whiny and you feel as if there are some things that aren't being said. Many things just don't make any sense. This is something that feels like it has been written in an email and sent to a good friend from someone who just needed to vent. It would make an excellent email, but not a great book. I think most of these things could be fixed with rewriting and editing.

    An interesting book that offers a very unpopular view on shyness. I don't want to give away too much, but I really enjoyed the way the book ended. It is worth a read.
