Perez wrote the book meaning to be transgressive and anti-mainstream but the hype doesn't deliver. If you edited out the curse words this could be a script for The Secret Life of the American Teenager. For as sexual as the themes of the book are there is quite a bit of the fade-to-black.
The style it is written in is good but Perez uses it as a crutch when he doesn't feel like writing the actual story. It is written in the first person POV by a girl that has a hip-centric-dialect that gets old fast. She talks like a cross between Miley Cyrus and The Fonz.
Still, the story is entertaining and it is a quick read so if you are looking for an exploitive beach read, this is it.
