While the plot line was good, the flashbacks and the order the story is told becomes confusing.

Got to say this one fell a little flat for me. The two different plots didn't gel nicely - sometimes I found it hard to catch on that the narrative had switched - and I really just felt like the point that the book was trying to make just wasn't being made in the best way. It felt underdeveloped overall to me. The bullying plot was a lot more hard hitting at the end of the book but it just came off as too little too late at that point.
