Well, I did one of my big no nos. I peaked at the last page and ended up with information that spoiled the plot for me. This is why I'm unable to give the book a star rating. But I can say this, I wasn't so enamored with the book (after 100+ pages) that it didn't matter. Although somewhat entertaining, it didn't hook me enough to finish it. I think See lost me on the initial 6 page Guggenheim application a the beginning. I thought it would've been best to put it at the end but then after peaking at the last page I understood why she didn't. Still, I almost tossed it before trudging through those first six pages. I wonder how many readers she's lost with it?

From what parts I've read, it was an easy, light read--I would qualify it as in the "beach read" category.
