False Memory is an ok book. My experience with YA books is limited. But with as with everything else, I know what I like and what I don't.

Good: The characters are good. There seems to be limited emotional interaction between characters, but each one gets fleshed out through the book. There is enough of a cliffhanger at the end to make me think about reading the next book. I would recommend this to my students.

Bad: I just don't feel the writing was very good. It seemed choppy throughout. Just as good development started on a character or scene, it seemed to stop. I've talked to some English teachers about the style. We came to the conclusion that the writing is an attempt to draw the YA audience. It does seem to be very similar to the way they write.

I won't be going out to search for the next book, but if it shows up I'd read it.
