did not like it

Absolutely horrible book. I was looking for something fun but decent at the library, and the back matter sounded promising, so I decided to check it out. I'm one of those people that has to finish a book once I start it, and this book made me hate that about myself for the first time in a long time. It started out okay...premise was a little silly, but it's summer reading, so I gave in and kept going. I'm not sure if Stuckey-French was pushing a deadline or what, but as I was reading, I noticed that if there was a problem with the storyline, there was suddenly a pat little solution out of nowhere. Totally out of thin air, unexplained. The worst offense is the conclusion of the novel, which made absolutely no sense in relation to the rest of the story and actually pissed me off. It's bad enough that a 334 page book took less than two hours to read, even for a really, really fast reader, but for me to actually be angry that I lost that time to a book that I spent no money on is even worse in a way. I think I'm angry that this book is out there in the world and there are people that will think it is good, and people will pay money for it, and recommend it to their friends, and the author will make money off of it, while authors who actually *do* write really good books with amazing characters and brilliant stories and genius endings write and write and write and will never be published while crap like this fills library shelves. This is a great book to read if you want to know how to *not* write a novel. Otherwise, avoid it.
