I wasted my money and bought right when it dropped. I can probably try to send you a PDF if you want. It was a complete waste. Most of it is fiction, I made a thread about it here: Discussion - Did anyone read Jessica's book? ....

I don't know why people are thinking she's going to spill REAL TEA in the sequel. Lmao, she's not. don't get scammed like me again :joshmeh:

Srry you dint like it, tho im not involved/responsible in any way. Just curious wat you expected from it n why? Other than an erroneous 8autobiographical description tat was later removed, nobody ever promised it wasnt fully fictional about a girl named Rachel Kim n her experience n her life based on the author's experience n her life(my own description).

Again im just curious, thnx. I liked the book n looking forward to the sequel quite so actually.:jenniesmug::rosesmug:

Is the writing itself good? Plot aside, author aside, is it actually written well? I haven't read it so I'm really curious.

It reads like it's meant for middle schoolers, because it is. Worst thing I can say about it is most of the characters aren't that likeable

idk but this goodreads review killed me

"First of all, Krystal Jung i love you so much you're my entire world and i knew how much you love your older sister. Alright lets talk about this book, the cover? Awful. Entire book? A massive big meh, BORING. This book screaming fan fiction so loud. Cringey, some sentences was cheesy and lame. A lot of unnecessary characters, made me as a reader feel so confused. Well maybe she wrote the number of the member nine as same as her former group but whats the point? Why put a lot of characters with a useless effort? This is not biography book so whats the point????? The romance? Insta-love. Rachel and Jason first meeting was UGH. "And that coffee is way too sweet. I’m saving you from getting diabetes.” SO LAME. Its 2020 and still use that formula? NO THANK YOU. Last thing, the worst part, this book will have a sequel. It will be much better if this book was a standalone imo. (less)"

I personally didn't think so. Its like it was written by a teen, but maybe that style will be up your alley. Some of it was cringe to me. I didn't bother to read it again after the first time lol, but I did go through it fast trying to find the tea.

She should have written it for older audiences tbh considering most of her fans are adults.
