This book doesn't deserve the blurb it has on the back cover. There was no magic in the way the story unfolded, and I'm not exactly running to tell all my friends about it. Not to mention, readers deserve to know what kind of story they're getting into, and this one was nothing like I expected. Yes, the core issue of the book is relevant and important, but that in itself does not make for a good fiction read, especially if you're not prepared for that topic or not in the mood to read about it.
