So much time in this book was spent with the relationship between Day and June that it got somewhat distracting. They both clearly were interested in each other, so why did she still get chills around the other guy? It didn't make much sense. They also acted a little too extreme when it came to being on again off again about their relationship. One minute they're making out the next minute they're lying to each other and pushing each other away. It was a bit much.
The next thing that was a bit much was the age of the characters. I know, I know, if it didn't bug me before to have a fifteen year old girl beating up seasoned soldiers why does it bug me now? The answer is that now she's doing even more 'adult' things that I just don't think are necessary to show. She's drinking wine and having sex, and Day is smoking some kind of prescription hallucinogenic medication (kinda like an extreme version of pot) I just don't understand why authors feel the need to do that after their books get popular. A good story doesn't need sex, alcohol and drugs to make it better.
The final thing I didn't like about this book was the keep-away-from-those-you-love idea. It happens twice with the Day June relationship. Once at the beginning Day and June stay away from each other for 8 months. Why? Because he's dying. That to me is stupid. If you really cared about her you would spend time with her, and let her have the chance to spend time with you, and be honest with her. But then I have to remember they are young so they're prone to doing stupid things. Which brings me back to my previous point, why make them do 'adult' things? At the end of the book, after hating that Day did this to her, June does the same thing back to him, only for longer. "I'll stay away from him because I love him." Really doesn't make sense, I see the reasoning that the author tries to use, but it just doesn't hold water for me. I don't think people actually act like this, which makes it difficult to relate to characters when they are being ridiculous.
