Read from April 22 to 25, 2012

I almost put this book down in the first couple pages. It felt boring and aimed at 14 year old girls. Then I got swept up in the urban fantasy aspect and sped along pages 5 - 250 loving it, thinking this was definitely a 5 star book.

Then it all came crashing down when the narrative went into a 100 page flashback, giving me teenage girl blubbering about dreamy boys and forbidden love. By the time the story righted itself and it came back to the present I didn't even care anymore, and the sad scene toward the end brought a shrug out of me.

5 stars for the first 2/3; 1.5 stars for the last 1/3.
