    DNF I m just going to quietly put this one aside.Everyone told me I should read Amy and Roger s Epic Detour after I tried Matson s Since You ve Been Gone and didn t love it One person suggested on my review that maybe I just didn t relate to the characters and, you know, I think they might be right.Matson s characters read too young and immature for me Her female MCs are high school seniors or juniors, but they blush at things that wouldn t have made me blush at twelve.In this one, I never f DNF I m just going to quietly ...
