Plain and simple: THE IDEA WAS GOOD. THE EXECUTION BAD.

**Some Spoilers**

Let's cut to the chase, shall we? I can't believe I paid for this book.
It needs editing SO bad. The flow is off, there are missing words, things really should be re-worded, and the structure is pretty wrecked. Not to mention punctuation, grammar, etc.

It was pretty juvenile. Girl has boyfriend (a nice one at that), breaks up with boyfriend because SHE thinks SHE is not good enough. Suddenly she meets her guardian (he saves her from an accident), and talks to her guardian about twice. Suddenly, she is in love and obsessed. I didn't even get to see a relationship develop at all! There was no developing. I do not even understand their relationship. Hell, I liked Carter more because he was more 3-D than the 2-D relationship with Seth...

The only reason It got a 2 from me is because there were some parts I liked and I liked Gen for most of the time. She seemed real - except for the whole 'insta'-love thing with Seth.


Don't get me wrong, I'm usually pretty generous with book reviews. I don't actually like giving bad reviews.
