Warning: I'm going to be harsh.
Honestly; I didn't like this book at all. The plot was really unbelievable. I can see how Dan suffocated and died..that's fine but when the main character is climbing on ropes just isn't believable to me. Also, I think that if you were at the scene of a death your real friends wouldn't betray you, never talk to you again, etc. I think they'd be more understanding and accepting. Another thing is the characters seem more like they are 13 and 14 instead of 16 year olds. This is just my opinion because this book has got some good ratings but I was expecting more.
