As for Katie's friends, they were as bad as her, but in different ways. There was Seth, her boyfriend, who hated Tommy Sullivan for something he did to his brother, even though it was the right thing to do. Sidney was just so shallow and snobby, and liked herself way too much.
My least favorite characters were definitely the football coach and Liam, Katie's brother. Liam really did drink the Kool-Aid when he joined the football team! The coach was horrible, the way he made it seem like non-Quahogs were inferior because they weren't on the stupid football team. The whole town was annoying in that way, giving the Quahogs special treatment and acting like anyone that said anything against the team was committing some kind of blasphemy. I mean, it was just football!
Tommy was one of the few decent characters (the other waitresses at the Gull 'N Gulp weren't bad either) because he didn't worship the Quahogs. I felt kind of bad because everyone hated him for doing the right thing. Books with that theme really irritate me.
All in all, this was an okay book. A little cliche, and very predictable, but not a waste of time. I recommend it to fans of chick-lit and anyone looking for a light read.
