**THIS ENTIRE REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS**
I actually read this book a while back, but didn't get around to reviewing it until now. I'm quite sure that people have read many spoiler-free reviews for the book, so instead I'm going to do a book review/discussion that will freely discuss the second half of the book (yeah, you know what I'm talking about). First, I'll start off with a quick spoiler-free section, then move into the spoiler section (which is hidden under a spoiler tag, so don't worry). Also, throughout, I'm going to assume you've read Point of Retreat, so I won't do any explanations of who the characters are and such.
The best thing about Point of Retreat was probably the fact that it was from Will's point of view! And after recently reading This Girl, dayum, that boy is fine. The worst thing about Point of Retreat was that it had drama upon drama upon drama. WHEN WILL IT END?! As soon as you read that Will isn't going to tell Layken about Vaughn being in his class, it's like DON'T DO IT!!
But what would I be hiding? Is it really necessary to tell her who all the students are in the classes I'm in? We've never discussed it before, so why do I feel the need to now? If I tell her, it will just cause her to worry unnecessarily. If I don't tell her, what harm is it doing? Lake's not in my class, she's not even in school the days I am. I've made it clear to Vaughn that I'm in a relationship...that should be good enough.
Now onto the spoilers

Well, this "review" was a bit unconventional, but I thought something interesting should be done rather than a normal review. If you didn't really enjoy the style, don't worry, my next review will be back to normal!
