I had no expectations whatsoever before reading Crash so after finishing it, I was surprised to find it very enjoyable. I know a lot of people are disappointed about the lack of action or the subplot about the supposedly forbidden romance between Jules and Sam but I found it to be quite interesting.
This might sound ironic or strange because I usually don't like the romance element in YA books but I quite like this one. Maybe it's the fact that all the mentions of pastas and pizzas in this book made me salivating for a slice of pepperoni pizza. But Jules and her family is an interesting bunch and it's nice to read about a normal family in a YA book where the parents are actually there and is not conveniently missing.
For me the whole vision plotline is handled well and was so glad that Jules finally got her man in the end. The rivalry between the two families are sometimes exaggerated but in the end it's the kids that change things.
