Accidents and Incidents

*I was sent this book from NetGalley* 

Goodreads Summary
Sometimes finding love means taking the scenic route ... Living with her faultfinding mother has taught Leslie not to ask for much. Just watch your step, stay on the sidelines, and take what you can get. But she wants a mom who thanks her for cleaning the kitchen instead of yelling at her for missing a spot, and a boyfriend who does more than score her a seat at the popular table-someone who actually notices her sitting there. So when Cain, the school heartbreaker, turns his Carolina blue eyes her way, Leslie can't help but be tempted, even if he's her boyfriend's best friend. Things get even more complicated when Leslie strikes up unlikely friendships with Meredith, Cain's girlfriend, and Dennis, a boy addicted to cigarettes and solitude. Despite his tough exterior, Dennis seems to understand Leslie in a way that no one ever has, and to need her as much as she needs him. For the first time in her life, Leslie feels like she could belong. She's just not sure where.

My Thoughts
This book was ok. The characters were kinda one-sided and just when you thought they would develop some depth, they didn't.  Leslie had no backbone. She couldn't stand up to her mother, boyfriend, or her friends; she just let people walk all over her. Then she meets Dennis and he seemed great, but his character was so flat that I didn't care if they got together or not. Plus the titles of the book has no relevance to the plot. Not anything that I can ascertain anyway. I don't see myself reading this again and that's the real test, right?
