I know I'm having such a violent reaction over this.
It's just that I put so much hope in this book and since Summit Book published it, I was expecting it's pretty good. The writing isn't bad. Bianca has the potential of being a well-rounded author. I just don't like the way how the story went.
There are things that bothered me and the ending was a deal breaker. I've read Summit Books before, they always end in a positive way. That's what Chick Lit is all about, right? I'm not looking for a happily ever after, but at least something that would empower women as what Chick Lit had always been not make you depress or fuming mad at the end. The character's age and the setting do not fit the storyline.
There are things that are impossible to happen at that age. It would have worked if the setting is in college; it is more realistic than high school. Since I know this is originally a fan fiction, I'd let go of the similarities of most scenes from Korean dramas I've seen but that isn't enough reason for me not to look for something different and new with this book.
Thinking about it, I don't know if I've read something I haven't read before.

Probably one of the reasons why it didn't work is because I've read numerous New Adult novels I got immune with overly dramatic situations. I'm not gonna make any more excuses; the story didn't reach my heart. I was more annoyed than sad. I said I'm okay with bad boys but being an asshole is another thing.
Kenji went from irritating to amusing, then charming and loving, and ended up as stupid, insensitive jerk. He was turning out as a lovable character with seventy percent of the novel, I don't get why he has to make a degrees turn in the last couple of chapters. A variation of Bernardino's love story between Athena Kathryn Bernardo and Kenji Daniel Padillaset in the 90's instead of the novelette's original timeline, is sandwiched within the beginnings of the blossoming romance between Athena's niece and Kenji's son, who are also played by Bernardo and Padilla.

The niece and the son have been serendipitously forced into a mission to reunite middle-aged Athena and Kenji played by Hihintayin Kita sa Langit's Zulueta and Gomez respectively who have been separated by mysterious circumstances.
Predictably, Athena and Kenji's love story has more meat.
The niece and the son's romance feels more like an afterthought, a way to further capitalize the masses' interest on Bernardo and Padilla's popular love team.
Nevertheless, Garcia-Molina drapes Athena and Kenji's narrative with a crazed mix of kitsch and nostalgia for what the 90's represented in Philippine pop culture.
It is the era of paged messages, tie-dyed tees, gaudy bandanas, garish plaids, and denim vests, all of which are remnants of a generation fed with movies and television shows starring Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin. She's Dating the Gangster is rightfully colorful, evoking every bit of the 90's trademark tack.

The tragedy invented by Bernardino has been creatively subdued. Star Cinema undoubtedly protested the grim end of Athena and Kenji, as told by the book. It has to be a happy ending, for the sake of profitable escapism. Thus, instead of death as the payment for love, Garcia-Molina chose the reality of not being with the one you love, of waiting, of eventually settling.
It is this ending that separates Bernardino's juvenilia and Garcia-Molina's masked maturity, in the midst of studio compromises. There are simply more heartaches more immense than the ones dealt by mortality.
The film adaptation of She's Dating the Gangster is a series of risks taken that paid off quite well. It could have been a straight adaptation and it would still have pre-teens bawling because of the tragic ending.

It could have been set in the present with its characters mouthing pop culture references that are hip and relatable to the target audience. It could have been just about Bernardo and Padilla, and not Zulueta and Gomez, whose onscreen love affairs are relics. It could have been just another romantic comedy, the ones that mainstream studios have been churning out for corporate survival ever since the decline of the demand for more serious fare.
