The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Sweet Evil - Wendy Higgins This book has some of the most poorly written characters I've ever read. Narration and dialogue is so awkward and unnatural-sounding. Plus, the protagonist just annoyed me. I mean, I guess Higgins was trying to paint her into a Ms. SUPER-GOODY-TWO-SHOES, but it gets to the point where I was like, "Does she have any of her own thoughts or feelings besides do this because that's what good girls do, don't do that because that's what bad girls do!" She's also one of the most naive people EVER. I mean, ignoring the paranormal aspect of this book, people like this don't EXIST. They're not REAL. Everyone has multiple interests, quirks or flaws that help define their personality, but everyone here is just so FLAT. I got up to the part where she found out she's half angel and half demon, but by that time I'm like Aghhh I can't be in this girl's head anymore!
