22 year old Dacey was one of the two main characters, and I took an instant liking to her, but what had me smiling at various points throughout the book were her interactions with her 18 year old step-sister called Aria. They were such a great pair of characters to read about, and I grew to care about what happened to them, and at one point I was close to tears. They were funny, but when they needed each other, they were there for one another. I also thought the secondary characters, especially Aunt Opal and Mr. Eugene, along with Dacey's best friend Justina and her mother Mrs. D were fleshed out well, along with Officer Justin Parks.
While I enjoyed the book, one of the things that took me out of the story on various occasions were the typos and grammatical errors that I noticed as I was reading the book. Aside from that, I thought the storyline was good, and the characters felt real as well. I'll give Everything a rating of 4/5 platypires.
