Do not waste your time on this book

I forced myself to finish this book, because I kept hoping that it would get better. It didn't. I truly felt a sense of loss at the hours of my life that are now gone because I wasted them on this book. Characters are not interesting, and the end is just bizarre (I'm sorry, but NO ONE would do what she does at the end.)
