I have mixed feelings about this book. Obviously, I liked the premise and the fact that it's set in PG County, but the characters were aggressively stupid about some very basic things, there were a lot of loose ends that weren't tied up or were handwaved in a way I didn't like, and the setting wasn't utilized nearly as much as I wanted it to be. I also had a hard time figuring out exactly when in time the story is set (2015 when published or earlier?) and exactly how old Wavonne is supposed to be.

I also really hated that Halia talked like a detective a lot of the time. Why would she ask someone their "whereabouts"? So little things like that bugged.

But I did finish the whole thing, so there's also that.
