3.5 stars. I enjoyed this one. While I liked Shella for the most part, there was times I hated her and wanted to give her a slap. I felt really bad for Tran and the way Shella treated him. I was kept intrigued throughout guessing what was going on with Tran but I pretty much figured out straight away who Amie's dad was.

I was disappointed in the ending, as I would have liked to have seen more of what happened between Tran and Shella.
