Keelie's mother is killed in a plane crash, so she must go and live with her father at a ren faire. I thought this was interesting! Really! In fact, the other characters were interesting, and the plot had me somewhat curious, but you know. Keelie. She's 15, and acts more like she's 12.

Her grief is written realistically, but that's about the only thing I can give this book. She's such a horrible brat and has no depth. She's basically your stereotypical teenager you see all the time in fiction that doesn't actually exist in real life. Oh, and one guy she meets (Who is 28 and (view spoiler)!) of course lives in his mother's basement and plays video games all the time. Are we not done with that cliche yet?

One thing I did like: (view spoiler)
