I really, really, loved the beginning of this book. I don't know why I liked it so much, but the desert/alien setting was wonderful. I was hopeful, after reading Twilight. And then the book plummeted into pages and pages of the MC being weak and feeling sorry for herself and other characters hating on her and then falling in love with her and all this horrific, predictable, shit. The ending was horribly happily-ever-after. I still read it, just like I still read the Twilights, but I didn't really like it. (Yet somehow I must have cause I kept reading?) I just couldn't get how the beginning could be so good and then --!
