Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff

Told from the viewpoints of best friends Lilly, Noah, and Simon, with a prologue and epilogue from Simon's sister, Suzanne.

Lilly's had a crush on Simon forever, but Simon doesn't feel the same way--not at all. Noah has a thing for Lilly, but she doesn't even know. How are the three of these guys best friends? Well, they're brought together by their need for cigarettes and weed. Simon's Noah's best customer, and they tolerate Lilly's presence. They've fallen into the habit of spending time together, but that's all about to fall apart.

While I enjoyed the story, I wasn't a huge fan of any of the main characters. I wanted to see what happened, but I really couldn't care about who was in the story at all.
