I somehow like the story of the BFF thingy and the fact that Gabriella lives in a funeral home. But the story just get me little off while reading it and I didn’t much enjoy it.

The story goes with Gabriella that been all weird. Wearing black dresses and her family runs a funeral home but rather than that she has a best friend, Bree. When Bree started dating Bryce, his worst enemy and ruined her first kissed, she already know her friend is in trouble and Hartman came to her life. He’s been going to her funeral home and being comfortable with it. Until the prom night, one accidents changes Bree and Gabriella life.

The story is pretty dramatic for me and there is somehow that I didn’t know why she have to be like that every time. I just found it pretty annoying for the character itself. What I like about Gabriella is that how she really cares to her friend and she doesn’t want her to get hurt that’s why she’s been there for her every time. I like also the twist of the story of their friendship if they were like tested to each other on how long will they be together to hold on. As for the love that Gabriella has for Hartman, it’s off for me. I skip most of their moments and it didn’t give me much attention.

Overall, I didn’t feel much teenage vibe reading the book. I feel it really slow and like I’m trying so hard to finish this book. I didn’t get much hooked also to the story, like I could easily forget it after the read. It’s just wasn’t for me.
