it was ok
Read in April, 2010

** spoiler alert ** Still looking for innovative books for mg and ya readers, I picked this up b/c the concept looked intriguing.

What I got was a passive protagonist that the author was afraid to get morally messy. There is no conflict between her and her adoptive parents or her perfect boyfriend. There is a ridiculous amount of time spent on planning and having a wedding when she's got a time-sensitive devastating curse to deal with.

The girl, of course, doesn't have sex and get pregnant. She is raped (but only because the boy was possessed), and then the rapist conveniently dies so we don't have to deal with him. Her virginal perfect boyfriend doesn't care and asks her to marry him. His parents are supposedly a bit upset about this because he has to leave college, but their anger magically disappears.

There is such a lack of conflict and so much that happens conveniently in this story, I honestly wanted to throw the book across the room.
