I read this book almost in one go–a night I couldn’t sleep and an entertaining story, and that’s what happens. I’ve seen some negative reviews for this book, but I feel like I read a different story from those others. I did find the main character’s voice not noticeably “male”, but I dislike making those sorts of judgements and try to stop myself when I do it–do I know what goes on in every male’s head? Do all male characters have to be stereotypically male? I don’t think so.
At any rate, I found the storyline interesting and the characters intriguing, which was exactly what I was hoping for. The book does end at a bit of a cliffhanger, but I’m interested to read the next one anyway, so I doubt it will be long before I pick it up. Recommended if you like YA adventures–and it’s set just slightly in the future, so there’s a hint of sci-fi about it as well.
