Jessica Oban I really couldn't sit through this book, and I try to read a book to the end no matter what. It seemed like not much ever happened. The girls were always sitting in a cave, getting drunk, and reading from an old diary. I couldn't follow along with the plot line when something did happen. I was constantly confused and bored. I didn't care about Gemma or her snooty friends.

I did care about what was going to happen with Gemma's power and weather it was good or bad, but not enough to carry me through the whole book. And then a whole series? That's when I said forget it and put the book down.
