If I may start this review with a kind of comparison - I recall reading something Joss Whedon wrote once which, if I paraphrase correctly, said something like 'you make a great drama by taking people that the reader cares for and putting them in peril'.

And in doing so you'd have about as good a description of Briana Vedsted's 'A Girl Named Cord' as you could get.
