The Family Romanov vs. Only Ever Yours

After reading Only Ever Yours there is not one student that we could recommend this book to.  Yes, the comparisons to Ugly are there but on a surface level only.  The book is too depressing, too crass, and basically pointless.  As we read the book no one on our team could bring themselves to like, let alone care about this character.  

We had voted for Family Romanov to move on in an earlier round and we stick with our vote.  This book is a far superior read.
