I did not really like this book, which is disappointing because the idea is good, and I was really looking forward to reading it.

What a sloppily written book! Statements in one chapter are contradicted in the next. Sometime this happens within a paragraph. It is as though the author never ever re-read what she wrote and certainly there was no editor.
The writing is very clunky.
The story is trite and have been better done many other times.
A great disappointment.
