Read from April 21 to May 19, 2011

At first I was really interested by this: an Asian / Pacific Islander sort of world, detailed descriptions, everything. But there are pacing issues and a few things that just seemed like Johnson was checking off lists in what was necessary for a bestselling teen fiction novel: first menstruation, unabashed and uncontrollable love at first sight, etc. Still, it's her first published novel, and I think I might check out the second in the series soon, and her other stuff, which has apparently been better received.

I was just a little disappointed because I thought her short story in Zombies v. Unicorns was phenomenal. Perhaps the series will improve!
