I wanted to love this book from the minute I first read about its premise. Unfortunately, a good idea for a story and huge potential for fascinating characters are mostly wasted here. Whitehouse has some moments of amazing (and vulgar) descriptions, but the characters are just not developed enough. It's hard to buy the romantic relationships, Mal's motivations, and the parents' philosophies as well. That said, it was good enough for me to finish it, since I will definitely put a book down after ~50 pages if it's not gripping me. I would definitely give this author another chance in the future. Too bad about this book though, really wanted to love it!
