I rushed to his side. Kenji was all wrapped in a blanket and shaking violently.
How do you shake violently? Is it with eyes going white? Anyways, when I read the part "violently" I already imagined him in a convulsion state. How do you show "violently" at that part? And to think it was just a high fever Usually it would take about half a day for a person to have a fever after getting soaked in wet clothes and cold rain.
You don't happened to have a fever in a snap of a finger. The characters were not interesting. You have this bad boy falls in love with the new girl in school and blah, blah, blah.
You get the picture. It's mostly a copy-pasted characters from Kdramas such as "Boys over Flowers" and some American chick flicks. Athena Dizon- A flat character. Aside from not really letting us know her perspective in life, it lacked realism specifically when it comes to her emotions. Most are just rants. Sure, there were phrases such as "I cried I blinked back my tears", but emotions aren't only based on actions.
They are also revealed internally- on her thoughts, opinions, realizations and feelings. That's why there was no connection between Athena and I, because her thoughts were limited. It was hard reading her which shouldn't be if she's Bella Swan, that is lol because First person are the most intimate with readers since both parties know what the character is feeling throughout the story. Also, Athena which should be, again is not very observant to the things around her and how her life goes.
Also, she has illness, but how could I feel sympathy at her when the author doesn't clearly know how to feel what it's like to be dying.
10 Moments From The Book We Need To See In She's Dating The Gangster Movie
I mean, I'm not saying I have a cancer and I'm dying or that you should really experience something to write about it, no I was like all, "Okay, she's sick. Can't the book SHOW more of how it's like to be dying? I'd probably switch reading to "A walk to remember. Perfect in a way he's popular, handsome, good athlete Goo Jun Pyo, is that you? He has flaws okay, but not something important, not important in bringing up the story. He doesn't have weakness as well at page 30, where in he got in a brawl with a guy and afterwards, he had no any scratch or bruise at all It still bothers me why he didn't explain throughout the story the reason why he and Abigail broke up in the first place.
And the reason why he took a job as a waiter. I don't know but it seems that his type of character are overused by other writers as well on Wattpad. Why people love bad boys, huh?
As for the other characters I couldn't care less about them, especially when it comes to Lucas and Abigail-- the stereotypes. Lucas portrays the good guy- gentleman and loyal who was in a relationship with Abigail-- the mean ex girlfriend of Kenji who's still quite possessive of him. They were undeveloped and were just cut-out cutboards with small roles with no depth. They didn't help develop the story at all. I'm especially disappointed with Sara, Athena's bestfriend, she doesn't act like one.
For example, you don't tell your friend to be in a fake relationship with someone just to get a revenge, because you're probably sure she will get hurt at the end. But as for her, she supported the idea. There were too many imperfections of this story but I won't mention them all.
Most importantly, I felt like this "book" doesn't have a plot. Okay, it has one but it was too confusing and indirect.
I really resisted the urge to just leave the story unfinished. I really wanted to stop reading. But I wanted to see what everyone was talking about. I thought that with every chapter that I finish, the story would at least progress and slowly develop to reach the climax and main conflict but there were too much "filler chapters". A lot of chapter was unnecessary. This story shouln't have been published into a book.

A book is at least clear, polished, and clean. It was as if every chapter in this story was rushed. As if the author just thought of random scene to put in a chapter.
To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. I really expected this story to be "good" but this story is really far from it. I don't mean to offend anyone in this review. I don't want to come off as someone who is excellent in writing.
