I was surprised to really like this book! It is a "sequel" to Wicked Lovely, but follows a different set of characters. I usually don't care for stories that don't revolve around the same main characters that I've become attached to, but I was really drawn into the story of Leslie, Niall and Irial. And Aislinn, Seth and Keenan are still definitely part of the story, so I still got to see a little of what happened with them. The ending was a bit abrupt . . . but it wasn't as bad as the Uglies books that I read where it took 3 books to get to the end of the story and the ending wrapped up in a few pages.

Angela Okay, well, after talking to a friend that also read this book and doing a little digging on the author's website and blog, I apparently missed a sub-storyline of a gay/bi-sexual past relationship with 2 of the characters . . . I feel kind of stupid for missing it and then saying how much I loved the book! When the story would talk about these 2 characters, I was a bit confused by the history the author was referring to, but I wasn't really interested in slowing down to figure it out because it didn't really seem important (to me) to the main story or Leslie so I just kept going. I know that since I read so fast that I miss some things the first time around. So this was just something that I missed, I guess. Given that I didn't pick up on it AT ALL, I would venture to say that the relationship is more alluded to than graphically described and put front and center in your face. There may be a kiss at the end - I think my friend mentioned this, but again, I didn't notice it! I was kind of border-line as to whether I would read the book again or not, and this makes me more likely not to re-read it. I did really like the story overall and the writing was great.
