June 26: And the grey settles in. . .

Dumping Billy by Olivia Goldsmith

A heartily mediocre book: characters were kind of interesting (very stereotypical, many of them, but not 100%), plot kind of original (not 100% sure where it was going to end up), writing kind of interesting (too much telling, too little showing, but certainly not the least original I've ever read). . . Basically, it was an okay book to pay 50 cents for and to rip through, part skimming, on a rainy, dreary afternoon/evening.

People magazine's comment ("What a great feeling to fall into the capable hands of Olivia Goldsmith.") makes me question their definition of capable hands. Ah well. Back to the book sale with it!
