Conceptually, I really loved this book. What a fantastic premise! It was what kept me reading when the execution was frustrating me. I really wanted to know what was going to happen and how everything was going to be resolved.
Everything was there in this book. The characters, the setting, the whole concept. This had the potential to be a fantastic book but for me there a disconnect in emotion. While I knew situations were sad or tense, I didn't feel it like I wanted to. I needed the words to be more than words. It may have been the first person POV that made this one tougher for me.
But, like I said, the whole concept of this book was fantastic. The book had a good, steady build and the ending climax was a page turner. I was always pressing forward because I wanted to know more.
This book is targeted to a YA audience and it is clean. That is a huge bonus in my opinion. It's tough to find books of this nature that are clean and you can pass of to your teenagers without worry.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
