No Seriously, right from the start of the book seventeen-year-old Gemma becomes Insta-bonded to Evan, despite having a friend that she's known for ever. And this isn't your normal love a first sight either. We're treated to her describing Evan as "Wild Thing" by chapter three or 4. She's so giddily head over heels in love this this "guy" that when she finds out that he's fully intending to kill her she shrugs and so "oh well I still love him!" While not her exact words that's pretty much while she means.
The entire overwrought descriptions of emotions, every couple of sentences, may or may not be due to the translation. Still it's pretty bad even by Insta-love standards. As an example early on in the book, Gemma realizes she's been a complete jerk to her best friend Peter who's been there for the long haul. So in this scene she attempts to tease him and maybe show him that she'd like to talk about whatever he'd wanted to talk about when we first met him. Before anything can go very far however Evan appears and Gemma turns to a pile of warm blushing pile of goo just because "Wild Thing" is staring at her. In fact she's so worked up that she feels like shouting out her devotion to "Wild Thing" to the entire auditorium. She's also upset that Peter is showing some jealousy about the "new kid" having eyes for the girl he fancies.
I skipped ahead just to see if such angst had mellowed and was disheartened to to see that it had not. I definitely won't be continuing this book.
