That's why I stopped. It's going to take me a few days to finish this since I'll only read it when the sun is shining. I had to go back to middle grade to calm my nerves.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Haha! It's pretty scary. I'm at Ch. 3 now.

Mason (view spoiler)

I also wonder why Mason was so (view spoiler)


message 26: by Megan (new)

Megan Brooker | 490 comments On chapter 8 and so far I have mixed feelings. On the one hand the plot is extremely quick and easy to get through, there's lot's of action as well and moments where I'm hanging on the edge of my seat. I also grew up in Wyoming and many a long weekend were spent hiking in the Tetons so I love hearing all the descriptions of them and can totally understand the fear of the dangers that lurk in them. Britt has a good head on her shoulders but I get caught up in all the Calvin drama (who doesn't even really seem like he's going to play that big of a role in the actual story) and comparing herself to Korbie, they're a little too much like mean junior high girls at a slumber party. I think Korbie means well but she is so sheltered and her personality grates on my nerves so much that her dialogue's a little hard to get through. I'm interested to find out how Mason got involved with Shaun or if there's some kind of black mail going on, there's lots of different ways the author could spin his story and I'm interested to see what path she chooses.
