I was really interested in the story, but the writing is so... not good, I just couldn't make myself stick with it. It's not bad, but it's very amateurish. A lot of dialogue about things the characters already know-- the "My sister Lisa, who as you know is..." syndrome, and dialogue about things the reader doesn't really care about. Description of unimportant things, and no description of important things (scene setting, for instance). A lot of "telling" and not much "showing." I found my fingers itching for the editing pen. Sorry.
