First, can I see the characters as if they are real people? Kind of a funny question this time...I moved to Washington (not too far from Seattle) my junior year of high school. Also, I was a bratty blonde cheerleader who could never pick only one boy and who was constantly doing stupid things that made people scratch their heads in disbelief. I was always in trouble and sneaking out of the house. And, the dark haired girl who tried to suck the joy out of my existence was named...wait for it...Chloe! (Which I'm totally over now.) But super weird, right? Does liking Skyla make me vain? Addison, if I had ever made out with a teacher, I would swear you were channelling me! So, yes, I believe the characters. And I don't care if Logan is a liar and traitor, being hot is quite the redeeming quality. :) Besides, I'm a sucker for a good love triangle!
Second, was the book exciting enough to make me neglect my responsibilites in order to continue reading? Yes, it was. The story is complex. There's a lot of characters to know. Many problems to solve. Severals goals to achieve. And so many possibilities. The twists and turns are incessant and sometimes shocking. I think these things make the book interesting.
Other people have complained that it's hard to follow. I followed just fine...I'm guessing it's my adderall. Focus people. Anyway, to sum it up...I loved the book, love the series and can't wait for the next book! :) ...more
At first, I didn't think I could enjoy this book because the main character (Skyla) seemed so negative and bratty. But, as you readI loved this book!
At first, I didn't think I could enjoy this book because the main character (Skyla) seemed so negative and bratty. But, as you read on, the negativity turns into a somewhat dark sense of humor that I actually found endearing and entertaining.
Once Logan and Gage became central components in the story, I was completely enthralled! It seems like almost every YA book I read, I find myself thinking what a tool the love interest is and how he sounds like a girl. I was able to forget that these male characters were being written by a female author.
My only problem with this series is that I started it before it was completed and now I have to wait for the rest of the books! Every book I've tried to tide myself over with seems to pale in comparison! ...more
