This story starts out strong, immediately drawing the reader into a bizarre mystery. Unfortunately, the author is not an experienced writer and it's evident throughout the novel. It felt like she lost steam as the book progressed and rushed the ending. I personally did not mind the constant switch between first and third person narrative, but the dialogue between characters is choppy and unnatural, often reading like a student's creative writing assignment. I'm giving it three stars because the premise and plot were creative and interesting. I think this author has some great creativity and the potential to become a good novelist, she just needs to continue to work on her writing.
