Content-wise, I think this book is not particularly innovative, but solidly good. Format-wise, the shift between prose and screenplay format was sometimes jarring, but sometimes fun. What really made this book a 4-star instead of a 3-star, though, was the "You" character -- the unnamed and ungendered best friend. The simply fact of not knowing the gender of this character made me think so much about how gender influences story, and how different those small moments between Phyre and "You" could be (or not!) depending on gender.
