This book made me wish I had just discovered Kody Keplinger's novels and read them all in one weekend binge. But I've read them as they have come out over the years and read hundreds of other books in between and so the many references to other chara ...more

I read more than halfway but the characters and the writing are both not cutting it for me. Too much like a true glimpse into the minds of 14 year olds and not enough like a well plotted and well edited fiction book.

This book and characters were so well done and compelling that even after I realized that an unexplained paranormal thing was happening to the character/plot (which usually turns me off) I kept reading and enjoying it!

Loved the British setting. Was glad when the characters and I both forgot the whole Aphrodite thing for awhile in the middle. Loved the creative solution that the main character had to try to save her boss's business. Some memorable characters and mo ...more
