This is not a Test . . . is it ?

Bloggers I am sad to say this . I just have to tell you that I am not the kind of person that ,Ever wants to make someone feel bad! I do not encourage giving bad reviews and what I am about to tell you really isn't a bad per say review?!  This book that I am working on reading . I am really struggling with it.

First of all , I never ever claim to be a an English Major . No I most deffinetly dont  think that I have perfect grammar. But there has to be a way to explain what I've experianced while reading this novel. I never do this unless the book is unreadable. Then in that case I give up all together !

Let me explain my thoughts on the Novel This is Not a Test
by Courtney Summer.

I get the book, super excited after all everyone is talking about it . So I buy it on my Nook so I can read it right away. It starts of great ,the relationship with her and father is sad. Her thoughts on suicided and missing her only sister. But my question to you all is ?
Was any of you a little baffled by the way it was written at first? Like I kept having to re-read certain sentences . I thought possibly it's a miss print? Or maybe it's just the Nook format some how screwed it up. But nope my girlfriend in Circulation Department at work happen to have to paperback copie from the library. She was experiancing the same thing?
Now this really turned me off about the book. And so I thought ,maybe this is self published? But its not St.Martin's Press I believe published it ? Correct me someone if I'm mistaken ? How can they publish a novel that seemed to be written oddly in some sentences?

All I kept thinking is it's gotta be my copy ? Everyone is giving Great Reviews! Now let me please be clear !
The who story line is awesome ,I'm sure. There is a couple parts while there in the school. Where I am like oh come on with it already .lol Where is the scary action?
As far as Lady Zombie goes this has to be back on my T.B.R pile . I am willing to give it another go . Love zombies to the Max's!
