I just started and finished this book in the last few hours. This was so bad I could not even get past the 1st chapter.

With all the skipping back and forth without knowing what the characters names were, it was hard enough to know which "boy" was currently doing what. Hey Cass (Can I call you Cass?), ever heard of something called "adjectives"? "The boy wearing the red shirt" or "The blond haired boy" or even "The really tall boy with bad teeth" Any of those could have worked in letting me, the reader, sort out what was happening. You did it with the blue haired boy aka punk kid, but what about for Jace and whats his face? I didn't even care to read enough to get to anything else.

I read some reviews after I made the choice to stop reading & I am glad I stopped.
