I rarely rip apart a book. But this? I can't even figure out where to start?

OK, OK. COMPLETELY UNBELIEVABLE. There. That's a place to start. It was horribly written. I felt like the setting was never completely developed. I had this sense at one point that its big city, then it feels small town. I was totally lost.

Then, the sequence of horrifying events - they just weren't realistic. I don't know why I read stories like this. I feel like Eason didn't do her research. Things like when the detective makes an announcement at the school. It would NEVER EVER HAPPEN LIKE THAT. I work in a school. I know. Especially now in today's society (in which this book was set). I just had to laugh.

The romantic story didn't make sense. It happened to fast, and in a sort of unbelievable way. There's always a twist too - but it just made the story worse to read.

The worst part? I read the whole book. I wasted precious sleeping time over this story. I wouldn't read the next in the series. I wouldn't recommend this book. Just don't waste your time.
