At the End of the Day

His name was Patrick Fitzpatrick, but he pulverized anyone who dared to call him that. He was an enigma, a mystery. Nobody knew anything completely true about him other than that he hated his name. But hey, I'd always liked solving mysteries.

Rosie Thinks: The quote at the very beginning, from Grey's Anatomy, is utterly beautiful and suits the story perfectly. Now, I usually despise when characters outright describe themselves in the very beginning, but DancingChaChaFruit has done it in such a unique and funny way that it didn't bother me in the slightest. Lindsay is starting at a new school and quickly becomes fascinated with bad boy Patrick Fitzpatrick, whom she dubs 'Ronald McDonald' at the beginning due to his crazy hair, although he prefers Thrasher. The reader - and Lindsay - can't help but become exceedingly curious about who he is, even as you learn more and more about him.

The dialogue between Thrasher and Lindsay flows well and brings the characters to life. The story is very much based around their relationship with lots of Thrasher/Lindsay time, which you means you get to know the characters well. Their relationship is developed gradually but at a realistic pace. I really liked how there was so much beneath Thrasher's exterior; how he was actually really smart and a bit sweet.

I only found two problems with it. One, her sister, Lorraine, seemed a bit unrealistic in the way her emotions would go from one end of the spectrum to the other. And the second one was more of a consistency problem where, in the party scene, she starts off wearing a skirt and then is somehow wearing jeans. But other than that, everything else was well-written and edited.
