At first, I quite hated the protagonist. It certainly didn't help that this was written in the first person POV. However, FINALLY, after about 2/3 of the book, the main character wasn't quite so loathsome. The two things that kept me going were: 1) It was YA so the font was large and the story moved quickly; 2) The story itself was interesting and kept me going.

I had a feeling that Turner was setting up more books in the series because near the end, so many new threads were introduced that there had to be sequels. (And there are.) I'm about half way through the sequel and will gladly read the next few.

In the end, it was worth reading. :)

Sarah Glad you're enjoying the series! Yes, it gets so much better after this first book. Especially the 2nd and 3rd books!

Virginia Yay! Can't wait for the 3rd and 4th book to be on my hold shelf. I guess I had wanted to check out the first two before I borrowed the 2nd two. (That's all I can figure out from viewing my hold history at the library.)
