I didn't like this book when I first started reading it. It's supposed to take place in the future, in year 2060 or something like that. It annoyed me a little, because I think it's a series and I've never read any of the other ones, and they kept referring to things differently. For example, they used the word "units" instead of money, and "fizzies" instead of soda, and "tube of Pepsi" instead of can or bottle of Pepsi. And I could not figure out why that was until I re-read the cover and realized that it takes place in the future. So after I figured that out, it was easier to read and actually became enjoyable. It's a typical murder mystery book, but the twist is that the killer is only a 10 year old little girl. So I did like it, but it was more like a book to pass the time until I find something I really want to read.

Eva Leger Did you read the first 23? LOL

Krissy No, Denise picked up it for me somewhere, and I really hated it at first. It was infuriating the words they used, till I realized that it is supposed to be futuristic or something. It got better as I went on, but I still wouldn't give it more than three stars. Just something to read till I come down and pick some more out. I still have one of yours that I didn't read, I think it is called "First Aid." I tried but didn't like the first ten pages. I may give it another shot.
