With so many novels targeted to teens marketed as sequels, triologies and never-ending series, I found myself wanting to skip over the very detailed inner-workings of Ellery's thoughts, actions, and existence to uncover the mystery behind the security detail who watches over her, especially since the book is thick regardless. I would have preferred to uncover Ellery's true character over the course of the three books as opposed to how Ellery is in the position she's in at the beginning of the first book. Too much is told up-front about Ellery, which could be weaved seemlessly throughout the triology. But for teens who are straight-forward readers, the book's secrecy, love interests, and main characters will guide them through the series in the different perspectives the sequels offer
