Again, I didn't like this one as much as the first one. I kept getting confused by how much time had passed by, and how old she was. I would also get confused by what she was doing; some of the descriptions were kind of hard to follow. And I miss her friends--they brought a lot of the humor to the story. I don't really like her um...romance. I guess it's more like a kissing companion. There isn't a lot to the relationship, they just kiss. Which is also a little disapointing. And it wasn't with who I wanted her to be with. I still like the basic story, and I'm marching on to the fourth and final book.
