Popular with terrible grades and no real plans for the future, intent on living in the now and drinking as much as possible. A strained relationship with his mother and an even more tenuous relationship with his girlfriend, Cassidy, lead Sutter to drink until he wakes up on a stranger's lawn, woken up by Aimee Finecky — a girl he goes to school with but has never really seen.

Aimee is nothing like Sutter — quiet, shy and socially inept. Sutter takes her under his wing and introduces her to a world of parties and drinking, under the pretence of trying to fix the problems Aimee has with her controlling mother and stepfather while ignoring his own deep rooted problems.

I finished this book in less than a day it was that good! The writing style really fuels the book and using a first person narrative, telling the story from Sutter's point of view, makes the story feel more personal.

As a character, I didn't like Sutter — he was unappealing and made choices that frustrated me, however that didn't detract from his narrative or the fact that his story was quite compelling.

In fact, because I didn't like him as a character, I think it made the story more compelling. Aimee is the other main character of the book and one I felt like I could have connected with more if the story had been told from a different viewpoint.

Through Sutter's narrative, I felt sympathy for her as a character because of the way her situation is presented and the way her own ambitions are treated by Sutter, but I didn't feel I understood her in the way I did Sutter because of the insight into his own psyche.
