I'm really not sure what I was supposed to get from this book. Is it a commentary on the pain and desperation of loneliness? Is it a mockery of elitism? Is it insanity for the sake of insanity?

It was certainly easy to read, I'll give it that, but I kept waiting for something that never came. I kept waiting for there to be a reason why this book was slut-shaming so much. Kept waiting for it to be funny like all the blurbs claimed it to be. Kept waiting for the characters' actions and motivations to make sense. Kept waiting to find out what was so dark about Samantha's writing that it was worse than the girls writing about rape and murder. 

Honestly, I don't know what I think about this book. I know I didn't enjoy it. I didn't find the characters compelling and despite the over-the-top plot, I found the story as a whole pretty boring. I don't know what I was looking for, but this wasn't it.
