This book was hideous. The main character has no personality, and as she's written, is barely believable as a teenager.

I won't even bore you with a synopsis other than to say the book was poorly written, badly constructed and had gigantic, easily spotted grammatical errors on almost every page. The dialogue was laughable and I felt myself being ripped out of the story by mistakes and bad sentence structure so often I could barely concentrate.

Thank God I got this as a free book, if I had actually paid money for this I would be writing a strongly worded and grammatically correct letter to the author, demanding my money back for the price of the book plus wages for the work I had to put into enduring this horribly over written short story-cum-bloated corpse to the end.

Let this be a warning to "new" authors. Get someone who isn't related to you, or who at least actually loves the English language to beta read your work. Not everyone is as laughably lucky as Stephenie Meyer.
