This was a nice book. Interesting, but it didn't knock me out of the ball park.
The author almost lost me when I thought she was going to go for a predictable cliff-hanger, I think she made a good choice on the ending.
I like that there is an interesting plot. Mangum gives us good character development on Abby, her friends, her drama teacher, but ultimately I think she fails in truly charming us with Dante. I don't think she gave us enough time to bring us to the level of feeling that Abby claims to have for him. When Abby finally says that she loves Dante, it falls flat. They're interesting apart, but I think they lacked chemistry.
I am really looking forward to the next book and what part those around Abby will play in it. I have to assume since the author gave us so much of these characters that they will affect the next book greatly.

Little update: After reading Hush, Hush I can see where this book failed me and I'm not quite as interested in reading The Golden Spiral as I was before.
