So I was warned that this book made one feel *feels*. But I was not really cognizant that those feels would be anger and despair about the thing that happens on the very last page and then the book would end abruptly when something important was about to happen. So...if you have problems with cliffhangers perhaps you would rather wait until the following book in the series is somewhere close to existing and being available. As it is, it was just CRUEL.

Still, if she hadn't made the characters and the story matter so much, it wouldn't have been so heartbreaking and rage-causing. So there's that. It was a good story, with fun, oft witty teenage characters and a good mystery, and then it punches you in the gut so that you wished you had the next bit right away. It might have been less devastating if I hadn't stayed up half the night to finish it...maybe.
