Well written YA friendship novel

am rating this base do it being a YA (teen) read, and it is something I would recommend.

There enough ratings here so I will just summarize:

- easy read, and I enjoyed listening
- I wanted to hear what would happen next
- I could predict the plot
- Not all the characters were believable. I had a problem with the contradictions in Jasmine .
- The deception of depression and impact on family makes this a noteworthy read.
- I dont think it had a lot of "normal" teen issues which a YA would relate to.
- Tech and slang seemed out of time period (set in the 1990s?)
- I would recommend this book strongly to any YA or teen reader.
- book is a story of to people becoming friends and helping each other
- It has happy ending

There a plot miss, where I had hoped for Jasmine to face up her the difference of her issues against the really difficult home life of the protagonist. I was expecting this for a few chapters but it did not happen, and Jasmine seemed rather non-nonchalant about the situation not offering any strong supported. To me this was a missed opportunity for more drama and friendship bond.
