's review

liked it

This book was an incredibly easy read; the longest chapter was about five pages.
And the fact that it was such an easy read is the only reason I continued to read it. I didn't not like the book, though I was disgusted by the way the characters acted in the beginning (what high school would let children act that way???).
Towards the end, about 200 pages in, is when it became a nail-biting page-turner. The reviews plastered on the back cover praised the book for its action and suspense, but I was disappointed that I had to read so far into the book to find that. I want a book to grab my attention the second I open it, I don't want to wait. That first impression is so important, and my first impression of the novel was that it was boring.
That's the reason that I'm only giving a three-star review. Had the book been as suspenseful and action packed from the beginning, it would have scored better.
