"I'm Adrienne Haus, survivor of a mother-daughter book club. Most of us didn't want to join. My mother signed me up because I was stuck at home all summer, with my knee in a brace. CeeCee's parents forced her to join after cancelling her Paris trip because she bashed up their car. The members of "The Unbearable Book Club," CeeCee, Jill, Wallis, and I, were all going into eleventh grade A.P. English. But we weren't friends. We were literary prisoners, sweating, reading classics, and hanging out at the pool. If you want to find out how membership in a book club can end up with a person being dead, you can probably look us up under mother-daughter literary catastrophe. Or open this book and read my essay, which I'll turn in when I go back to school."--From publisher.

The writing style was mediocre, the characters rather flat. The only really surprising thing is who actually died at the end. All in all, not a horrible book, perfect for a day where you need something easy to read.

This book was pretty terrible...the author might be a good storyteller but she had no story to tell. This book had absolutely no plot. Nothing eventful happens until the very end and you feel as though the author just threw it in there because her publisher told her the book was boring. I didn't relate to any of the characters because no depth was created. I don't know how I even finished the book. I think I was hoping something interesting would happen.
