It's hard for me to put my finger on exactly what I didn't like about this book, thus causing me to give it only three stars. I expected to LOVE it, but I didn't. As I remember (I'm writing this review 4 or 5 years later), the story moved a bit slowly. I don't remember loving any of the characters particularly (another mark against). It was hard to know who to root for (who were the protagonists, who were the antagonists?) To the book's credit, it was memorable (a plus!).
