I hate this book and wish it would die! Thankfully it was in the HMV bargain bin so I didn't pay much for it. We follow the story of a group of teenagers including Si and Danny who spend most of their spare time hanging around a hill. Things change when Eleanor joins them and a plot is hatched to commit a revenge murder.
What did I hate about this? Pretty much everything really. The writing is terrible, the plot pathetic and the characters are nasty, bitchy, deranged little tossers that I personally wanted to kill-especially the dimwit cow Eleanor. Every time she opened her whiny mouth I wanted to slap her into unconsciousness. The plots just made no real sense and the author couldn't seem to make up her mind what she was doing with it which made it a complete mess. If this story is the typical urban teen angst books that are so much fun to read then the future is looking pretty damn bleak for book lovers everywhere. Do yourself a favour and don't pick this crap up!
