Note: I received a copy of this book free for review from GoodReads.

Overall, I thought this book was a mildly entertaining piece of brain candy. The overall premise was interesting, but the execution left a little to be desired.

The characters felt very cartoony - all of them had very over-the-top responses to every situation and it never felt like they developed at all over the course of the story. Even what I thought was supposed to be the defining emotional-development moment for the main character fell very flat and I just didn't feel the emotion that was supposed to be there.

The plot was very jerky - it almost felt like a strung-together collection of short vignettes. The author is also very fond of doing a "And they lived happily ever after - OR SO THEY THOUGHT!!!!" paragraph many times throughout the book.

I don't feel like I wasted my time reading it because I was entertained, but it definitely isn't a book I'd buy for myself or recommend to others.
