3 Stars | Young Adult | Fiction
The very first thing I noticed was how forced these "letters" were (that's what this is, an exchange of letters). The second thought I had was that this sounded like adults talking (there wasn't any differentiation in voice, so it sounded like the same person speaking in both letters). When I realized it was between "two teenagers", even though one was supposed to be a worldly globe-trotting adolescent, I shook my head repeatedly. What teenager uses words like: serendipitous, laments, trite, "good ol' email", "paragon of impulse" (very adult) but then turns around and says "Anyway, you wanted to tell me your story, but our nosy parents seemed to be everywhere." and "my life sucks right now" (trying to sound younger).
After the first few letters, reading this became very tedious. There was zero point, other than two "teenagers" (not) discussing random, inane, nonsensical things. I got halfway through and quit. The only reason for the three stars and not two or one is because despite being boring and senseless, the writing was well done, mechanically.
