2.5. The last 20% saved it from a 2. So~I'm one of the odd ones.

I found it to be poetically written, but lacking humor, heat and intensity. I felt distant from the characters until the end, when Max started to get more vocal. I didn't know who was guilty until Swift did, but frankly I didn't really care.

If I'd read it expecting it to focus on Swift's struggles with addiction and self-absorption, I may have enjoyed it more. Instead I was expecting the focus to be on the mystery, with some romance, and a good dose of wit. Other than the CYOA bits at the start of each chapter, I just wasn't amused (which disappointed me as humor is one of my favorite things about Lanyon's books). I guess this one just wasn't for me.
