really liked it
bookshelves: read-in-2015

*4.5 stars* Why not 5?? I really did like this book, don't get me wrong. I just didn't feel like it was executed as well as All Fall Down. Grace was SO frustrating in this book! I know she had a traumatic past and everything, but she KEPT. DWELLING. ON. IT. Sure, I've never been in the situation she's been in, but it was aggravating for her to mention her past and her sorrows and her fears and her worries every three pages! I tried to relate to her, but failed. However, on the light side, I loved Alexei even more in this book! I felt like he went through a lot of character development, which I appreciated. As did Lila, come to think of it. I say she's the doppelganger of Macey from the Gallagher Girls. ;P I really missed the Noah/Rosie/Megan/Grace team that we had in All Fall Down, BUT, I love Jamie, so I guess that makes up for it. I really liked the mystery in this book and the different areas that were explored outside of Embassy Row. This book was definitely creepy. Just saying. And that plot twist at the end! Mind. Blown. I NEED THE THIRD BOOK!!! This was a really good book. I just wish Grace could forget about her past, that's all. I completely recommend this book, especially if you have read All Fall Down!

Language: None/Mild. One use each of "freaking" and "screwup."

Romance: Mild. A couple of kisses and a late night swim between a boy and girl.

Violence: Mild/Moderate. Stabbing, shooting, explosions, and some description of blood. Not bad.
