  1. Actually, the first time I even heard about this book was last week. I wonder what is so great about it? Even people like Kim Kardashian (not that I have any prejudices against her), were seen praising this book.

    • I read something on yahoo about it. 2 states had banned it. I think that’s why it blew up. I also wonder what’s great about it?
      Who ever is marketing this book they are doing a hell of a job lol..

      • actually, I just heard the other day that it is initially a twilight fanfiction.. no idea if it’s true though. but still…

        thumbs up to the marketing team!
