Mar 18, Alysa Del rosario rated it did not like it A lot of my friends recommended this so I thought that I may give this story a chance. But I hate to say that it can't really be considered as a real story. Honestly, it was like reading a 13 year-old's rant. It must have been an easy read but it really was not. Some stories I've read before were cliche but at least they were written properly.

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. Cathy Garcia-Molina's adaptation of Bianca Bernardino's She's Dating the Gangster, the Nicholas Spark-esque novelette about another lovesick girl falling for the coolest guy in the campus, could have gone the way all the other commercially successful teen rom-coms went before it.
Bernardino's story, which curiously ends in tragedy, has all the makings of a swoony hit, especially with all its outrageously blatant manifestations of juvenile love.
In the novelette, Athena, a normal girl in campus, is forced by Kenji, the campus' top mischief-maker, to pretend to be his girlfriend to make his ex, who is also named Athena, jealous enough to want to come back to him. As with all love stories of this type, the pretences dissipate, giving way for what seems to be true love, which would be abruptly stopped by some mean twist of fortune, which in this very unoriginal case, is a fatal disease.
Garcia-Molina, thankfully, has more adventurism than most of her peers who would have gone the route of simply filming the novel as is, as what Andoy Ranay did in his adaptation of Diary ng Panget The Ugly's Diary, Garcia-Molina's adaptation, which innovates to cover the obvious derivativeness of Bernardino's text, is simply put, offers a stark improvement over the original material. A variation of Bernardino's love story between Athena Kathryn Bernardo and Kenji Daniel Padilla , set 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.
