I thought that the premise of this novel sounded great. A straight-A student, who doesn't want to be perfect anymore and who doesn't want to go to Columbia all of a sudden.I also thought that the Jelly Bean Theory was interesting.But the execution was not so well done. I would have expected Poppy to be more flippy and trying out more things. She did, but I think that there was too much plan and lists in it. Also, she is behaving like a snobby, white, rich girl. She does have everything and now she's throwing it all away.But the writing style was pretty decent and I liked how easy it was to read the story and how I wanted to know how she would decide at the end.All in all a nice and quick read.
