Not my favorite, but not because it was bad writing or a bad story. I just didn't like Val. I felt like she was a goody-goody in an annoying way. Yes she drank at a party and skipped school that one time, but still there was something so miss perfect and overthinking every little thing about her. And I didn't like the whole thing with Jagger (the slacker ex) for two reasons:
1. How ironic that the "bad boy"s name was Jagger. (That was meant to be sarcastic)
2. I didn't get his appeal... why was he supposedly a bad boy other than he cheated on the uptight goody-goody? (And was it just me or was Val borderline trying to stalk him... I don't think he'd be into her at all.)
The mystery aspect of it was good though. It had me guessing the whole time :)
