She's Dating the Gangster by Bianca B. Bernardino
Based on the movie, She's Dating The Gangster and theme song, Till I Met You, comes a Janna version. With a twist~ cover by: ItsShxinee. Feel free to request if the lyrics of the music/song you're searching is not here! And this song was from She's dating the Gangster. P.S- Sa mga nakapanuod ng . I haven't heard of She's Dating the Gangster until One of my friends recommended this story from a site called Wattpad. I can't stop myself from crying while listening at the song and Theme images by 5ugarless.
How do you shake violently? Is it with eyes going white? Anyways, when I read the part "violently" I already imagined him in a convulsion state.

How do you show "violently" at that part? And to think it was just a high fever Usually it would take about half a day for a person to have a fever after getting soaked in wet clothes and cold rain. You don't happened to have a fever in a snap of a finger. The characters were not interesting.
You have this bad boy falls in love with the new girl in school and blah, blah, blah. You get the picture. It's mostly a copy-pasted characters from Kdramas such as "Boys over Flowers" and some American chick flicks. Athena Dizon- A flat character. Aside from not really letting us know her perspective in life, it lacked realism specifically when it comes to her emotions. Most are just rants. Sure, there were phrases such as "I cried I blinked back my tears", but emotions aren't only based on actions.
They are also revealed internally- on her thoughts, opinions, realizations and feelings.

That's why there was no connection between Athena and I, because her thoughts were limited. It was hard reading her which shouldn't be if she's Bella Swan, that is lol because First person are the most intimate with readers since both parties know what the character is feeling throughout the story. Also, Athena which should be, again is not very observant to the things around her and how her life goes.
Also, she has illness, but how could I feel sympathy at her when the author doesn't clearly know how to feel what it's like to be dying. I mean, I'm not saying I have a cancer and I'm dying or that you should really experience something to write about it, no I was like all, "Okay, she's sick.
Can't the book SHOW more of how it's like to be dying? I'd probably switch reading to "A walk to remember. Perfect in a way he's popular, handsome, good athlete Goo Jun Pyo, is that you? He has flaws okay, but not something important, not important in bringing up the story.
He doesn't have weakness as well at page 30, where in he got in a brawl with a guy and afterwards, he had no any scratch or bruise at all While the book is only around less pages. That is because of the removal of the unnecessary scenes. Which on my opinion, is too much. They remove one of my favorite scenes.
Scene where Athena's playing the piano and singing 'Someday' by Nina. I can't stop myself from crying while listening at the song and reading the story at the same time.
Other scene wherein the barkada went to Batangas for the first time to celebrate Kenji's and Kirby's birthday. Kendi's wedding reception and turns out to be Kenji-Athena's engagement party. And there's a lot more! Read the original story if you're curious: The phasing of the story on the book is quite fast.
I actually done reading the book less than 12 hours. I barely got through chapter 15 and this story has 50 chapters if I'm not mistaken.
The characters had the potential to be good but they were really poorly described and written. Plus, it was really irritating to see various emoticons.

And by emoticons, I do not mean the simple emoticons. Some sentence were in Tagalog then the next was in English then later some Korean expression will be inserted.
There were words that really bothered me. I think it was the word "hindi". Instead of using the correct spelling, she used "hinde" and it's so annoying to read.
There were too many imperfections of this story but I won't mention them all. Most importantly, I felt like this "book" doesn't have a plot.
