I had a pretty strong reaction towards this book. I didn't like how New Orleans was portrayed (I know there is crime there but this book make it sound like it was the bowels of hell). I didn't like Claire (really, smoking with kids and buying guns off them?). And I didn't like Claire's opinions (Caucasians would never choose to live in New Orleans because of how bad it is).

I didn't like the book, I didn't like the characters and I didn't like the plot. I wanted to. But I couldn't.
