it was ok
bookshelves: boys-on-the-side, dark-dystopic, road-trippin, teenagers-in-peril, ya

Okay, I was totally gearing up to say this was hands-down the worst shite I read this year. The first half is just nonsensical. So nonsensical that I actually went online to check if it had previously been written in a foreign language and was then translated into English by somebody with only minimal understanding of the native tongue. It wasn't. The writing is just really bad. There is no character development and the plot, HA!, the plot is insane.

But here's the thing, the last half is better. Marginally so. The action builds, stuff happens. It's not good by any stretch of the imagination but it is not a total steaming pile of poo.

Maybe one and a half stars.

Although, it still does piss me off that this lady got a publishing contract.
