** spoiler alert ** What a terrible book and series. I read the first one on a recommedation and hated it but thought I would give the series another try. Not a good idea. I will no be reading the 3rd one. I understand that this is a young adult series and I'm not the target audience but I couldn't find myself vested in these characters. I don't care what happens to them and that's why I'm not reading the 3rd book in the series. I read plently of young adult books because they are simple yet forceful. Not this one. It pretends that it has a lesson buried in there but its hard to get too since the story is not well written. I find myself cheering for the young, naive protagenist in most young adult books but this one I could have cared if she made it out of prettyville or not (Also what terrible names for this! Westerfeld couldn't have been any less creative if he tried.)
What a terrible series.
