I got this over the weekend and was really excited when I saw it. I had no business really liking the the 1st book, other than it being a good story with believable characters, but i enjoyed it a lot.

This one seemed rushed in a way The Plain Janes was not. Maybe there was just too much going on for the limits of a minx book. From hearing her talk, I know Cecil Castellucci wants this to be a 4 book series, but maybe 5 books would have been better.

Main Jane is still the most developed character and really the most realistic. I loved her continued development. But the other 3 Janes seemed to develop as if they were in a popcorn popper and just burst with new facts/responses/wtfever with not enough adequate build up.

The overall story was quite good and had a great conclusion.

If this series continues I hope that the other characters develop better and that those that are mere plot devices (um... the cop father) can move beyond stereotype.
